Recommended Posts

I've been keeping a close watch on the new features that are being added to the next release of the forum software. There are going to be some great changes that are on the way and I'll use this topic to index them all.

We currently use a default profile photo (square SKF Aquatics logo) when our members have not set one. Whilst this has worked well in the past, it’s time to “get with the times” and this will be changed to be a little more personal. Letter profile photos will make it easy to quickly differentiate multiple members (who have not set a profile photo) in a busy topic.

The existing reputation/like system is getting an overhaul and becoming more social like and will be called “Reactions”. Those familiar with social networks will be quite familiar with how this works.

So the new site updates should be here by June sometime. In the meantime, you may want to think about your avatars as we move the default square to a more modern rounded style. Round avatars are available today with some themes but we hadn't made the move yet.

Most definitely, I’m just waiting on the final release version. They anticipate in Summer season for the US so not far now.

      Yes, I can confirm that rock / pebble rock / gravel will cause the pH to raise over time.  My RODI water comes out as around 6.8 according to my pH meter.  And I did follow the manufacturer's suggestion to wait 5-6 minutes when measuring RODI water because of the low ion.  After adding it to the tank, the pH becomes 7.2 -> 7.4.  The highest that I've recorded in my journal is 7.6 but it never goes higher than that. Here is my shrimp's diet: On M-W-F, I feed Bacter AE + Shrimp Baby.  On T-TH-S, I feed Shrimp Dinner. And on Sunday, I feed Shrimp King Protein to increase shrimp production.  Water change is once a month because I have a ton of floating plants to keep Nitrate low. @sdlTBfanUK It's probably because of the low quality image so it makes some of the PRL babies' color turn black 😁 But there are no CBS at all in this shrimp tank

      That's very interesting. I have read a lot that PH fluctuates throughout the day naturally anyway but it is interesting that your Bee shrimp are fine at PH7.4 as indeed mine were also (although it is normally outside their ideal range)! The PH in my tank started at about 5.5 and then went up to 7.5 over about a year (rock caused that I suspect) but as it was a slow progression it didn't seem to have any affect on them at all! It looks like you have some crystal black babies in that tank as well? Simon
    • DNTM_Shrimp_Breeders
      @sdlTBfanUK pH is around 7.4 in the morning and 7.2 at night.  I know it's dangerous and easy to have pH swing when you don't have active substrate.  That's why I measure pH at least twice a day using the pH meter.

      Great picture and love the shrimplets. Also pleased to hear it is all working so well! Do you now what the PH is of the new 20G tank? Simon
    • sdlTBfanUK
      That sounds great and pleased you have decided to go ahead. As you don't have any occupants in the tank at the moment it should be easy to get the tank parameters right by doing the planned water changes and add very little of the GH/KH+ until you have done the last large water change on Tuesday, that way it is easier to add the GH/KH+ to the level you want directly into the tank then - easier than finding it is over and having to get it down?  IF you were thinking of getting the shrimps from ProShrimp, they have quite a variety, bear in mind that there is postage cost only to a certain value (I think it is £35) so it may be better value to order a few more shrimps instead of paying the postage - if that makes sense??? If you are having them delivered Prohrimp or ebay you need to be home to sign/receive them obviously and IF using ebay MAKE SURE the seller is sending 'Express Delivery (Royal Mail Special Delivery (TM) 1:00 pm)'! Hopefully we will hear that everything has worked out well and all the hassle hasn't marred the experience.  Simon
