6 Foot Natives

No not Zulu's. The finished tank from my DIY.

So the cycling is finished now and the stock went in. I have planted it out with some spare stem plants, a little bit of MC and a stack of narrow leaf java fern. There is a bit of jungle Val down the flow end of the tank that had reached over 2m long in my inert sub community tank so it should get at least this long and flow from the left to the right. It all melted away when i first put it in but it is coming back now.

First up the Palaemonetes Australis went in and i gave them a few hours to find some nice hiding spots. There was about 15-18 adults and 9 or so shrimpetes so hopefully enough for them to start breeding.

Next was the Western Pygmy Perch with 6 adults and about 8-10 juvies going in. The have coloured back to a nice blush in a few hours so the move wasnt to traumatic.

      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 🙂
