Yes, I studied Indonesian in High School up until my final year, year12. 

I still understand it if I see it written and if someone spoke it slowly. But the slang terms like "nubi" can get me confused. Likely they sound like the english word, so I guessed it was "newbie".

 

yeah, substrate can be expensive. 

So there's a study about indonesian languange in Australian school?
it's surprising.. ?
is it like a major study? or an optional study?

yes you're right, nubi is a slang for newbie here.. ?

yeah, it cost like 50$-100$ here, it's too much..
compared with the shrimp's prices itself..

Yep. It's a subject you can choose to do. There are other languages you can choose to do at school as well.

 

Yeah, substrate and chillers might be expensive for you guys in Indonesia, BUT the prices for shrimp are just ridiculously cheap compared to what we pay here. $300+ for a pair of Sulawesi.

So you can't complain. At least substrate and chillers can't die on you like expensive shrimp can.

it's nice that you choose Indonesian.. ?

300$ for a pair of shrimp? ?
is it expensive because it's imported?
but i almost never see sulawesis shrimp sold here either.. ?

yeah, you are right..  it's one way or another..
maybe it's cost you guys more to keep a shrimp, if you have a chiller and buy expensive shrimp.. ?

anyway, thanks for your Information @jayc..

The first lot of sulawesi sold in oz that I heard of went for $750 per juvie I think. I guess they had just arrived in oz at that time in 2015.. 300$ a pair sounds like the current price.

THe issue of expensive substrate is a catch 22, Its better to buy the better substrate to help minimise the risk of losing shrimp which is ultimately in most peoples cases more expensive. 

I love benhibachi but at one point switched to Up Aqua Shrimp soil cause it was considerably cheaper and it had buffering capability to an extent in my tank for over 3 years so definitely got my moneys worth.

      I have only been keeping Neocaridinas for about two months now, I have 10 blue dream neos in one tank, and 12 orange neos in a separate tank. The tank with the 10 blue dream neos has been slightly problematic though because it's a smaller tank and waste builds up a little faster.
      That being said, can anybody ID this swimmer in my shrimp tank? There is only 1 that I can see, it appears to have an exoskeleton almost like a shrimp, and it swims at the surface of the water by whipping its tail. I don't think it's a baby shrimp fry because I'm just now seeing my first female berried up and there haven't been any births before, but I suppose it is possible a fry snuck in with my order. Any help would be appreciated 😁

      I'm starting a brand new #neomix tank.  I won't be adding or taking out any shrimp, just documenting developments along the way.  I'm interested to see if any new variants develop, and what the tendency towards brown is.  I'll be sharing updates on my channel if you are interested in following along.   Enjoy!  #shrimptv

      Green shrimp  I looked at one of my green Neocaridina under the microscope, and I'm trying to determine if all green shrimp are like this... or just mine.  Any insight from other green or jade shrimp keepers?

      I picked up a packet of Hikari Crab Cuisine at the LFS and then noticed it contains copper sulfate.  I was thinking of feeding some to my neocaridina davidi var. orange until I noticed the copper sulfate in the ingredients.  Plus, I realize now Hikari also makes shrimp cuisine but I believe it also contains copper sulfate.  The only thing the shrimpettes have ever been fed is biofilm and Marineland Color Enhancing Flakes which supposedly does not contain copper according to the company.  Am I taking chances feeding the Hikari Crab Cuisine to them?  Or, is this the type of copper that is actually good for them in small amounts?

      But the shrimp will be thinking otherwise. Look at all that yummy brown diatom!

      I am old school like that too. I prefer the classics patterns/colours. And I try very hard to not create further hybrids. I want my CRS to be CRS. My tigers to be tigers. etc...   @kms, all the more to support the site and sign up as a paid member.   @Cesar, what's the deal now with the new forum update? Has the photo size limits been changed, and if so what is the max for regular members?

      Thanks for that, it helps to know that it is probably going to be fine with time. I tried a different substrate this tie so that is all I can put it down too! I will revert to the JBL in future as this hasn't happened with that? I don't use any plant ferttilisers, and as above have never had to with the JBL substrate. The JBL is primarily a plant substrate and the shrimp king is primarily a shrimp one I guess, though they both seem to do the same buffering /softening etc? There will be a bit of a delay with breeding I expect as they don't mature until they are 6 months I believe? Again, thanks for that, it helps to know what someone else thinks and the tank has improved (hard to believe from the photos) going a bit greener and the stringy algae virtually now disappeared. Also a few new leaves on some plants etc. I just checked the water parameters and they are spot on! Simon

      The new update has reduce the photo size to 1.67MB for me, and all the photo taken with my phone is over. My pinto only cost less that GBP 4, as for the Red Wine, its 5 for GBP 10.20, any extra Red Wine will be GBP 2 if more than 5 is purchased.

      New tanks often go through a brown diatom phase and its just a waiting game before the diatoms naturally senesce.  Ride it out. The shrimp will certainly help clean it up and I'd wager that diatom rich biofilm is good nutrition.  You'll have shrimp breeding before you know it.  There is certainly a good complex variety of habitat for them to explore and exploit. Are you using any plant fertilisers yet?
