I would just like to give a big thank you to all the organisers and Sponsors for the championship today- without you, there would not be such a great event. I would also like to thank all the judges and the people who entered. Congratulations to all the Ribbon Winners!

The turnout was fantastic- it was great meeting you all. Now I can finally put faces to all the SKF handles.

See you next year!

Was wonderful meeting you @KeenShrimp!

Will be watching your updates and journals with interest! Sounds like great developments with your tanks!

Hopefully a date for 2017 will be locked in within the next fortnight, so we have plenty of advanced notice for travel plans etc.

SKF was incredibly well represented on the day, with many from interstate. 

@KeenShrimp @fishmosy @Squiggle @Gbang @kizshrimp @Bill88 @newbreed (Lol) @lodo, can't mention everyone, but thanks for all attending where you could. 

As for when will it be in Sydney? Who knows??

We are fortunate in Victoria to have the Aquarium Society building to use for such events. 

We are looking to set next year's event date within the next two weeks, to allow plenty of time for people to work on entries and breeding programs, maybe arrange travel arrangements and take advantage of cheaper flights too!

Something that I am really pleased about is some very important stats.

Last year out of 23 Tanks we had one shrimp loss. This tank was filled using entrants ro and own filter. 

This year with 30 tanks we had no losses. Sadly one loss in transit on the way down but that was out of our hands. 

This year we had only two locally benched in entries, majority were entries posted in from within Victoria and interstate. 

Next year we will have much more notice and better timeframes for entries etc. Plus longer tank setup timeframes too.

So please all give some consideration to entering in 2017. 

Surely if my lines can win awards, our members should take out most categories. ?

Looks like a couple more of you showed up and perhaps we didn't meet, @neo-2FX, @Bill88, hope to meet you soon. Please, keep your eye on the SCV calendar and come along sometime, we'd love to see you.

Thanks. He's got one of the old school SKF shirts, so I thought it might have been someone else.

So that's who owns that Blue Bolt mumma.

Mosy seems to be in a few photos too. He is in one with Squiggle give us the piece sign. <edit> - I mean Squiggle is giving the peace sign. Mosy is standing next to Squiggle.

I wonder if their ears are burning.

      I'm impressed you managed to get a short video of this bug. What part of the shrimp's molt is it swimming in?   I think we are limited by the forum tools. I can't get the video embedded properly.
    • beanbag
      I looked at a molt shell for an affected shrimp under a microscope: https://imgur.com/a/9spPMjj It was full of these little moving bugs, so I'm inclined to blame my shrimp disease on this.  These bugs are maybe 20 micron or less in diameter and can swim around 0.5mm per second or so if they leave the shell.  I think this is too large to be a bacteria. They only seem to live for about 12 hours or so, or else maybe they all leave the shell after that time because I can't see them any more.  I know this isn't a great image to go on, but to get higher magnification I'd need to resort to better microscopy technique next time I can find a molt shell from an infected shrimp. I'll either need to find the right med to nuke them, or make the tank conditions more unfavorable for them, or maybe make the shrimp more resistant by feeding some kind of immune boosting foods? I tried adding planaria zero (bettel nut extract) and it didn't seem to affect them after 2 hours.  Somebody also suggested fenbendazole, but that seems to be aimed more towards worm-like things. P.S.  Can somebody who is good at forum stuff embed this link so that the video shows up in this post?

      That serious fish-keepers are always meticulous with regards to the item they will put inside the aquarium. Among plants, Anubias Nana is the favorite by most fish-keepers. It can grow inside your fish tank, and unattractive as a food for most fishes, making it a suitable and ideal plant for aquariums.

      My parents have an aquarium, so I don't know if this will help, but still want to leave a suggestion. They also liked the idea of installing a light strip in it, so they started looking on amazon. I don't know what went wrong, but it broke on the fifth day of use. I think it was a cheap Chinese thing (although the website told me it was waterproof and durable). They asked me for help finding a better option, and I advised them of the smart LED multi-color light strips I used in my car. Being pretty skeptical, my dad still decided to try them. They have been working fine for a month now and don't even flicker. Mom says the fish are happy, lol. I hope my comment was helpful

      It's not looking good. Quarantine any shrimp showing Necrosis, as it can be infectious. Tell us what your water parameters are, and do a heavy water change after that. Increase surface agitation to get more oxygen into the water. A bit of H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) into the water to increase oxygen might also help the shrimps that have not yet contracted this.
