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-:

      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.

      Sorry to see you have a problem. Try reading the section on 'muscular necrosis' in the below section. You will need to scroll down through it until you see the bold red heading of that description (it is quite a large article covering many problems etc, it is about the 5th item on the first page);   I don't have any personal experience of this but do ask any questions as someone may be able to help. A bit more general info may also  help, your setup, number of shrimps, how long you have had the shrimps, any water parameters you may have etc?

      Hello, I was wondering if anyone here had any first-hand information on these particular pictures. It describes exactly what a few of my shrimp have. The second picture is spot on and most accurate. Thanks

      #4 looks almost like a juvenile female to me, just looking at the abdomen in the top left image, but definitely looks more male in the other two images. The colour suggests it is an adult though, and it’s lacking a clear  so Simon is probably right in thinking it is male, that top left image is just confusing me a bit. If you’re going to get a female, to be sure, make sure it’s got an obvious yellow saddle. That’ll help you know it’s mature as well.
