Getting shrimp tomorrow

Recommended Posts

Mitch91

Very excited tomorrow I'll be picking up some mid grade rcs (low fire reds) grabbing 20 for my other tank I've had cycling for approx 3 weeks now. Just done water change as I havnt done one since first week in on the cycle. 50% out and replaced with Ro. No nitrites or ammonia, no nitrates And ph of 6.4. This is my second N last tank I have so I'll have to convince my wife that I'll need 2 more tanks now lol. 

My plan for this tank is to cull a lot and put the culls in with my fish and to maintain a decent quality red hopefully one day they will move up to high grade fire reds. 

On another note can someone tell me why my max photo size limit is only 0.03mb now ?

Asking forgiveness is easier than asking permission... just saying. ?

This is why I love racks. Now instead of seeking permission for another tank, I say I need another rack. Saves ten arguments in one go!! Lol

That's super exciting@Mitch91! You'd be surprised how adaptable Cherry's can be. I have my bloody marys in a similar pH and they're breeding like rabbits!

Could be a few things I think.

Did you find a moult with the eggs still in it?

Sometimes their first time is no good. I also find this with breeding fish too. You may find she'll be much more successful next time around [emoji2]

Nah no molt, I believe it's just because it's her first time she does have one egg still lol, hopefully next time round I'll get more :)

      If not prime,  you will have to use another de-chlorinator, as chlorine  will kill the bacteria. It might still cycle with prime,  but maybe a bit longer. Do you have access to one that doesn't bind ammonia?  No need to change the water  until you see ph drop below 6.5.

      Hi, I'm cycling a tank ATM and I'm using Dr Tim's ammonia, stability and I do have prime. But I was wondering if prime would stall the cycle since the bacteria need ammonia to feed and prime turns it into a.non toxic form?  My ammonia's been pretty high for the past week and I've been trying to do a partial water change to keep the levels down, not going down, no nitrites. But I did just start cycling it last week.

      It wasn't intentional, I was just putting the new shrimps into the tank, the dead shrimp just fell into the tank. I just purchased another 10 crabs today to make it a total of 22, but the shop put a few more in the bag for me, I will be keeping about 10 crabs, the others are for two of my friends, there tanks isn't setup yet, as these crabs are hard to obtain in Hong Kong, the last time I saw them available was over 5 years ago.
