Hi all,

 

i would like to share with you my tank/bowl.

 

i have had this set up for nearly 4 months now with varying fish etc.

 

at the minute i have 

2 apple snails (down to 1 as he escaped and cannot be found :-/)

2 horned snails

1 shark 

1 bristle nose

2 other fish im not sure of the name, its escaped me as i am typing

and 2 red clawed crabs

I have had a betta fighting fish be he sadly passed away.

I would love to have shrimp in the tank but i am to afraid of my crabs eating them 

Its a fairly simple set up nothing extreme its only a 11 litre tank so it has a 25w heater a filter and a fluval prism Ceramic LED light.

the LED light i am very impressed with i have to say my mrs loves changing the colour with the remote as her mood (which is normally changed to red)

Honestly, I wouldn't try to put anymore of anything in this tank, it's extremely overloaded as it is.

Tanks this small are not really appropriate for fish, I dunno if the crabs are a threat, but if you want to put shrimp in there, you should at least get a larger tank for the fish first, or rehome them if you can't.

Very colourful millz I love the bowl. If i was you I'd ditch all the existing stock and toss some cherries in there instead. ;-) it does sound like it might be overstocked as bluestarfish mentioned - especially as the inhabitants mature and grow) so I hope you can manage it well in the medium - longterm.

Love n peace

Will

      I am sorry for some reasons the picture did not go through the last time 🙂 Also, I am cycling 3 more tanks for a new journey with Taiwan Bee shrimps 🙂

      If there are no shrimps in the tank, you can do a 100% water change with water that is adjusted to your liking with Salty shrimp GH/KH+.

      Hello everyone, This is my first post at SKF Aquatics forum.  I came across this forum by reading the amazing post about breeding Taiwan Bees shrimp written by Jayc.  Regarding my first post, I just want to share with everyone the result that I've got from my little experiment with my current colony of PRL CRS.  A little bit about myself, I've been keeping all kind of shrimps over the last 3 years, starting with ghost shrimps, then move on the Amano shrimps, then cherry shrimps, and now I have 4 tanks of 2000+ PRL CRS and CBS.  About 6 months ago, after having some difficult time of finding ADA at a good price, I decided to start an experiment on keeping PRL CRS in a tank without active substrate to see if it's possible as well as if there are any problems of not having an active substrate.  I setup a 20 gallon tank with regular cheap gravel, 1 driftwood, 1 cholla wood, some annubias, and some subwassertang.  I use RODI water and remineralize it to the TDS of 130.  pH of my RODI water is 7.2 to 7.5.  I did not cycle the new tank because I was using two sponge filters from the other existing tanks.  I then moved 25 PRL CRS from well-established tank that has pH of 6.6 and TDS of 135 to the new tank.  After about 6 months, the result that I got is pretty amazing.  I've got tons of baby shrimps and lots of berried female.  Attached is the picture of the experiment tank 🙂
