Crystal Red Get Filtration

Recommended Posts

glenn

Can I ask what is the best type of filtration for breeding CRS? I have a basic sponge filter but was worried that it may not remove all impurities so added this sponge filter that lets me put carbon and filter media in the base. Would be interested on any tips / thoughts.6d9c9afb930022d3a5e6ffb1e9232fd5.jpg

Filtration is one of those things that you can't have too much of.

It is impractical to have massive sponge filters in one tank, so think of external canister filters, which can hold a lot more media than internal tank filters.

From the picture you have posted, the tank looks like the AquaOne AR126, 20 Litre tanks. 

Shrimps are not heavy polluters, so that filter you have will be enough. But if you ever need more filtration, an external canister filter like an Eden 521 or 522 can be added easily.

Thanks Jayc, I will plan that for my next tank build... saving for a third tank.

      Always try and look on the bright side! It does look more golden bee than red bolt but that may be because I HAD some stunning red bolts to compare it against. You may have been better off buying it at the slightly higher price as you would then have all the babies as well, assuming all went well of coarse when you transferred her on purchase. As you say, you know it is female!  Simon

      The photo don't show the true colors, its more of a orange color, and at the shop a week ago, it had berries, they wanted to charge me 10 USD, I didn't take it, and now it hasn't any eggs I got it for 6 USD.   At least I know it's a female.

      Those are stunning red wines (and photos) and as you say, not sure if it is a golden bee or a red bolt but whatever it is I am sure it will give you variety to the mix and mating will give you something you maybe don't already have which is always exciting. Simon
