      I just want to give a big thank you to @JPN07: it has been -4 degrees Celcius in Canberra the last 2 mornings. He posted Sulawesi Cardinals 2 days ago from the West Coast. With his ingenious double-heat pack-sandwich insulation packaging, the shrimp were at least 24 degrees Celcius in the esky when I got them. I went to check on them just now and they are all happy and foraging a few hours after arrival. Thank you so much for the generous extra ?

      I came across this Japanese website that shows the biotope of Sulawesi shrimps.
      Thought you guys with Sulas would be interested. (Need Google translate to English).

      @javierhnb, very nice shrimp. Keep it up.

      What do you mean by dim? Light intensity? or length of photoperiod? If it was me, I would shorten photoperiod to 6 hours, but give the plants full light intensity, ie. 100% brightness.  Dim lights benefit the algae.   H2O2 at 1ml per gal is ok. I wouldn't use fertilisers, except for maybe root tabs, and even then only a very small piece deep into the substrate. Any other ferts will benefit the algae as much as the plants unless you take out as much algae as possible. Floating plants can't hurt. And as Simon said above, give it some time since this is a new tank. The plants in there have not rooted in yet. Once that happens, they should out compete the algae. Got a picture of the tank?

      Yeah, we just go by age of the shrimp. There is no visual indication until you see a saddle. Up till then it's just a guess. Crystal shrimps are particularly difficult to gauge, since you can't see under the carapace until Cherry shrimps.

      Parasites don't kill their hosts so quickly, it doesn't benefit the parasite. So you can rule that one out. Diseases also normally take a while, certainly not overnight. Quick deaths are either toxins/poisons or aggressive breeding apistos.  Either way, sorry to hear the news. Hope the Apistos make up for it with lots of babies.

      Some great photos of some lovely shrimps, thanks for the update. I wish mine were doing as well but winter here now so not likely to get any babies for a while? Simon
