Bloody Mary Rescue Mission.

Recommended Posts

GotCrabs

I'm in the planning stages of doing a small tank for the Bloody Mary Shrimp I managed to find and save out of my Mr Aqua 12g tank that beyond my control had a Male Fighter fish introduced and clean out most of my Bloody Mary and Crystal Red Shrimp, found 5 BM earlier, now have them in a bowl of tank water, can see 1 or 2 more flicking around so will have to rescue them as I see them.

Thinking a small Aqua One Horizon tank I have, something like 30 x 25 x 20, something like that, have left over Fluval Shrimp Stratum, have plenty of Seiryu Stone laying around unused also.

I'm thinking Moss only, I really like how Weeping Moss grows, so thinking Weeping Moss only placed around the Seiryu stone.

A small internal filter or Hang on Back would be better?

I have access to Micranthemum umbrosum, Hydrocotyle tripartita Japan and Hemianthus glomeratus micranthemoides from my main tank, might use cuttings, but at the moment a Moss only tank sounds appealing and care easy.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Advise? All welcome, thank you.

What?! 

I would be moving the fish out rather than the shrimp.

1 fish vs half a dozen shrimp that needs specific water parameters ... the fish is easier to re-house into the 1footer.

Haha, beyond my control I'm afraid, has since had 5 Neon Tetras and 5 Zebra Danios introduced also, don't have many shrimp left at all, have 5 in a small bowl, can see another 2 in the 90cm, just gotta grab 'em.

      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 🙂
