Caridina dennerli

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, here is a video of my 30 litres dennerli tank which has been running for 2.5 years now.

Started a new bigger tank for them so they will have more space .

Awesome sight, don't often get to see so many in one tank. Love their little " white gloves" waving away.

Thanks Ineke.

Even in large numbers they are still shy, I usually only see 30 or 40 at a time unless I put food and I sit down and wait for a bit like I did when I took the video.

I had 6 in a 10 gallon tank but my numbers are dwindling slowly. What kind of food do yours like?

I give them the same food as my other shrimps as long as the food is soft enough.

With the number of shrimp you have there is not point trying to feed them, they will more than likely not touch the food.

@NoGi I think to be successful with sulawesi shrimps you need to do do 20-30 % water changes a week. Due to the high Ph and water temperature, the bacterial count in the water is higher than in the bee tanks, so they are more likely to suffer from bacterial infections.

      Just noticed you said 'thinking of adding tigers, would caridina work as well?' or something of the sort, just checking that you are aware that tigers are a species of the genus caridina? Those parameters should work brilliantly though for tigers and probably most other dwarf caridina (as opposed to like aussie natives or amanos and stuff). Tank looks fantastic!

      Stand looks terrific!!! Love the spot for the cat too! 😂

      That looks great and I'm sure shrimps will be very happy exploring and grazing in there. I look forward to hearing how it goes this time. I don't think anyone over here is sending shrimps (or fish) at the moment so I am not planning to get anything here soon, the fish are doing well in that tank, and there is 1 red steel shrimp survivor which shows itself occassionally?

      now the upload seems to be working with a 2Mb file ... but initially 6Mb seemed to big (popup with a "-200" error message, whatever that means 😐)

      Good to see you back and hopefully this time all will go well! Tiger shrimp would probably be best as a TESTER as they are less fragile and more adaptable to different parameters than Taiwan bee, so I would get a small group of those and see how that goes at this stage, you can change (or mix?) to the Taiwan bee if all works for a few months? With the correct parameters the PH should stay stable unless there is something like rocks that alter the PH. Using RO water plus the shrimp minerals will provide all the parameters at a set balance. I'm not aware of any changes since you posted the pctures back in April so can only assume it may be file size related, can you do one at 1mb or below? Simon
