Nov 2014. Yeah, the site has gone through several version updates since then.

Hey guys.

One article I think could benefit a lot of people that like their planted shrimp tanks is planted aquarium fertilizers.
What's safe, what's not, how it affects water parameters, what's not recommended i.e. High levels or cleated iron, (FE), iron sands, premixed liquid ferts compared to dry ferts etc.
what shrimp are perfect for planted tanks and which are more sensitive to chemical fertilizers.

Just a thought as I keep planted tanks as well as shrimp tanks and been combining the two with little successes and a few fails.
Everything till now has been trial and error and if I could share some of my experiences with someone so they don't have to go through what I did.
I'm not great at writing out detailed information but happy to help someone write it.
I have years of experience in fully planted hi-tec aquariums and semi knowledgeable on liquid and dry fertilizers but still a newby with shrimps.

Great idea. If you want to draft something, I can get people to work on it and articulate for an article. Otherwise, I'll add to the list but there are a ton of people more experienced in this space than myself.

Will work on it this weekend and send you a draft and I'm sure with others experience we could make it easier for people trying to balance this sort of issue.

Err.. it occurred to me that we might want to add "life fish food options and their culturing" as an article,

Does anyone have any good macro photos of bloodworms, etc... that we can use in the article?

Yeah that would be awesome, just pick a topic in this thread we haven't covered yet, do some research and type it up in a new topic. Or pick a brand new topic, anything is fair game if we haven't already published it. I can promote it to the articles database when ready. Be sure to include any references if you have any.

How about one or more of these:

  • Shrimp life cycle, care, feeding, and breeding
  • Troubleshooting common issues (molting problems, loss of color, high juvenile death rates, etc, diseases ...
  • Various options for shrimp media and their pros and cons
  • Apple snails
  • Common Moss in shrimp tanks (fissiden, christmas, subwassertang etc..)
  • fish profiles - take your pick  
    • Various tetras
    • SAE
    • Ottos
    • Betta
    • Guppies
    • Endlers
    • or Guppies vs Endlers
    • Clown loach
    • Khuli loach
    • etc...

Can't think of any other topics but that's probably a good list to start from

      Always try and look on the bright side! It does look more golden bee than red bolt but that may be because I HAD some stunning red bolts to compare it against. You may have been better off buying it at the slightly higher price as you would then have all the babies as well, assuming all went well of coarse when you transferred her on purchase. As you say, you know it is female!  Simon

      The photo don't show the true colors, its more of a orange color, and at the shop a week ago, it had berries, they wanted to charge me 10 USD, I didn't take it, and now it hasn't any eggs I got it for 6 USD.   At least I know it's a female.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Those are stunning red wines (and photos) and as you say, not sure if it is a golden bee or a red bolt but whatever it is I am sure it will give you variety to the mix and mating will give you something you maybe don't already have which is always exciting. Simon
