Australian Shrimp Championships 2017

9th July 2017

29 Grant St, Clifton Hill, VIC 3068

 

We wanted to give as much notice as possible, so we can get breeding programs set and so anyone considering travelling down/up/across can take advantage of flight and accommodation deals as they arise!

Categories/Groups as below: (may be altered closer to date, but don't see a need personally!)

Also, one adjustment of note. On the above chart Snow Whites are listed under group 4, this is incorrect and they are judged under group 3, with the other Crystals. ?

Judging criteria as below, this may help you decide on which lines to work with:

Special Note:

Continuity row is based on similarity of colour, size and patterns of group entered. The more similar your three judged shrimp are, the better you will score in this area.

Was wonderful to see many interstate breeders at this year's event, hopefully we can get more of you to attend next year!! ???

Thank you @newbreed this will ensure that the date will be cleared and remain cleared for this event. We will definitely be in attendance in 2017 and thank you to all who were involved in bringing us the highlights and updates for the Shimp Championship 2016, it was really appreciated and also made us a little envious as well.

Will be great to see you there @zn30

Hopefully we will have a whole colony of shrimpkeepers descending on Melbourne for the weekend. 

May give us a chance to arrange a SKF catchup dinner/lunch/thingy at some stage too!!

Things can only grow from here as the support for this hobby gets bigger, interesting shrimpkeepers in a group or gathering is now known as a colony, well done @newbreed apologies if anyone else has stated this previously however this is the first we have seen the use of a colony used in reference to a group or gathering of shrimpkeepers.

Haha. My abuse of English language is quite common. Lol

To be honest after last shrimp champs it could be referred to as a gaggle or a pride also! What do they call a group of laughing hyenas??!?

Any gathering of shrimp folk is a good thing! ?

A cackle of hyenas, LOL ? Shrimp, troop or swarm the latter I suppose being appropriate for bee shrimp. A group of people would normally be called simply that, a group "a group of shrimpkeepers" however still like a colony of shrimpkeepers.??

Awesome!!!

I love the continuity concept. I had been wondering about how to gauge that people have a consistent line.

I think I can jiggle around my trip next year so that I can make it back in time.

Thanks all for organising :-)

Love n peace

Will

Not sure what has happened but I have seen posts on Facebook announcing that the 2017 shrimp championships have been cancelled. Am surprised there is no mention of it in SKF but I thought I would mention it here as a few people look like they have things on hold so they can attend. Correct me if I am wrong but the posts seemed pretty certain it is cancelled.:huh-:

      Great shot of Big Mama!  I reckon, 1 week tops for hatching.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Great photo and news. The eggs are fading yellow but there are eyes so all looking good and there are a lot of eggs! Probably about half way ready to hatch.

      Let's hope the big mama can lay safely those eggs

      Sorry, I'm not in that area. 🙃   I prefer Glass tanks. Acrylic scratches way too easily. Often while cleaning algae off the sides. And once it's built up enough scratches, viewing gets obstructed.    Often going with LARGE tanks, you start to fall into custom built stands. So don't be surprised if you cannot find anything suitable.

      The easiest way wouod be to go to an aquarium shop and get a tank with a cabinet made for that tank, as that should be able to support the weight, as water in any large quantity is very heavy. I suspect it would have to be a glass aquarium at that capacity, otherwise the plastic would have to be very thick. It is possible to use a non aquarium specific piece of furniture but as you say it is quite risky, though I did help a friend do that by strengthening a nice decorative piece of furniture they had that they wanted to put a 350L tank on. It has been doing the job for 10 years but also bear in mind water marks, and we had to varnish many coats to make sure water doesn't soak into the wood etc. Its not really worth it in reality, it cost a lot of money to buy all the wood/stuff to strengthen it so was probably no cheaper, and a lot of time doing it. It may be dearer to get a combo tank and stand but much much easier and safer, and only you can know what ones you llike the appearance of? I would start off going to local stores and seeing if they have any you like, and even if not it will give you ideas?
