More Gumtree Woes

Recommended Posts

I agree with you guys, that is why I enjoy this forum so much. I just wanted to warn against potentially creating a false impression of a safe environment on the forum compared to Gumtree. By sticking to the regular contributors on the forum who have been around a long time and asking a moderator for a reference for someone, you can save yourself from losing money, and being disappointed in a transaction.

Yes always be careful, Always get references.

You can never be too careful and I always asked a few trusted members about people I may buy shrimp from.

Hi @Mitch91,

Did you use tap water or RO/DI remineralised? If it is tap water, it should be buffered by tomorrow night for a smaller tank if you have a nice fat layer of substrate in there. It is hard to guess if we don't know the tank volume, water used or the substrate thickness. With 3 month old solid it should still be good for a long time ??

      You should be able to tell the difference when they colour up a bit as those 2 type look quite different/distinctive patternwise! If you can't tell then put them in one tank and let them grow a bit bigger or just colour up a bit more then you will be able to tell and move one set to a different/seperate tank! Probably if they are small then there isn't much likelyhood of them crossbreeding as they are too young? Welcome to the forum! Simon

      Evening Guys,    I had a shipment (small one) arrive today, but the sender has mixed my King Kongs and Black Pintos in the same bag. Is there an easy tell tale as to which is which? (rather small juvies) These are my first bee's and really wanted to keep things separate for now. Thanks in advance.

      Only anything smaller than a neon tetra. They are unlikely to catch them however. Bottom dwellers are most at risk. But if your pleco is larger than a neon tetra size, it should be fine. Just keep the Long Arm well fed.

      If you want some special local NT Shrimps, email me aqua.green(at)bigpond.com there are other small shrimps in the top end no one has tried.  If you can get me into Kakadu there are some really nice shrimps on and at the base of the Arnhem Land Escarpment. Many would be good in the aquarium trade.   Kakaducarididae_revision.pdf

      I have a question, I have some new Murray river long arm shrimp, does anyone have any experience about keeping these guys in a tank with fish? What sized fish will they try and eat? (Or better yet successful catch) I also have a new bristlenose pleco in the tank, they're a little slower and placid, will they eat him?
