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

 

<edit> - Done. How to post image article updated to the latest forum platform interface.

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

      Had a quick look in my new invertebrates book and think they are Limnopilos naiganetri! If so it says temperature 24 to 28, Ph 7.5 - 8.5. They should be given driftwood and floating plants. It also says that although they carry eggs, raising the young has not been done in captivity (book produced 2015). This youtube video says she has had breeding though???? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPOIq4AsZCE I had thought about getting some in the past but as she says they are a bit like spiders so that put me off................ Hope everything else is going well still! Simon

      I'm really happy, finally a local shop in Hong Kong had some of these crabs, not to sure which variation of the spider crabs,, but they advertised them as miniature spider crabs (Limnopilos naiyanetri) , I was going to bring them back from Taiwan if I find any, but no need now, got them for about GBP 13.50 for 10 crabs, I will pick up another 30 crabs in the next few day.   The first photo is the crabs in the bag, I won't get home till tmr, the second photo is taken at the shop.

      You can do large water changes, I do it every 6 months to reset the minerals in the water, but you cannot just dump the new water back into the tank. It needs to be fed in slowly. I drip in the new water after adjusting it to match previous parameters.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Shrimp don't need much of a water change as they are low bioload! I have 30L and only do 2L per week so as with JayC cut back on the water change amount, even .5 litre would be ok! Large water changes tend to trigger moulting so they may be moulting too often? They may drop the eggs if they aren't fertilised and therefore unwanted! Have you seen any that look to be able yet?
