Photobucket changes

Recommended Posts

Madmerv

I'm sure some of you are aware of the changes to Photobucket. All photos that have been linked via photobucket are now not accessible.

They have moved to a paid subscription model to try and extract your hard earned cash. This leaves a lot of the older content, for me anyway, obsolete because as we all know "It didnt happen unless there is a photo". 

A lot of work will be needed to go through and change the old photo's out. Not impressed at all.

I've just checked a few of my threads and my pictures still seem to be there. I use photo bucket almost exclusively . I haven't noticed an issue YET . My pictures go back to January 2013 on this forum. I guess I will need to find a new app for picture sharing - it was bound to happen eventually .

Yeah i just checked yours and they are good. Wonder why mine are not working then. Are you a paid subscriber to Photobucket?

If you see any missing photos or pictures from content that I have written ... please let me know.

I'll try to fix it.

It might depend on how often or how much you link to photos on Photobucket as well...

SKFA is now not only for Shrimps. Hence the name change - SKF Aquatics.

So it would be great if we could see more posts from you about your Killies and tanks.

There is a killi page just for killies.

Now that photobucket requires payment to use our own pictures on 3 rd party sites- like SKF -can anyone suggest another  free photo share app. I take my pictures on my phone mostly but don't use my phone for forums and facebook so I need to be able to get my pictures from my phone or my computer in the case of my DSLR.

When you compare our member subscription rates to photobucket, we are miles ahead ?

Host photos here.

If you host your photo's on SKFA can you link to other forums from here?

I have switched to putting my photo's up on Flickr and have found it to be pretty good once you have worked out how to get around the site. I do not use a phone for photo's so can not say how well it works from mobile devices but from the PC it is good. It is free for now.

Yes, as long as it’s posted to a section that’s public (e.g. you can view it without logging in) it will work fine. If I remember correctly, the gallery is all public accessible here. You are only limited by the image quota associated by your membership.

Over time I will go through my old posts and repost the images.

Or can create updated posts, you never know! lol

      In case it helps I have looked up the figures of the 2 tanks with cherry shrimp in them and they are as follows, Main tank     PH7,, GH5, KH2, TDS 225 (mixed water) Betta tank  PH7.5, GH6, KH3, TDS 222 (tap water + mineraliser) They are fairly similar to each other but neither is really in the 'IDEAL' recommendation range of CHERRY shrimp ,so it confirms that cherry shrimp are more adaptable and can thrive even outside those 'IDEAL' parameters? I suppose neither are that far out but it just shows there is a bit less necessity to get everything 100%, though if you aim for perfect you will probably get better results all round? Simon

      Oh, if you are planning on keeping Cherry shrimp aim for 6-8GH as Simon said above.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Do you know what the water parameters are of this tank? Is the new male old enough to breed, assume it is as they only need to be 3 months I think but is that a possibility? Simon
    • sdlTBfanUK
      The usual GH range for Cherry shrimp is 6-8 and with the 1 part tap, 3 parts RO water mix you will be 50% there for G|H and just under 4 for KH! There are 2 products, one is GH+ and one is GH/KH+ so you need to get the right one for whichever route you plan to go, all RO water would be GH/KH+, mixed water would be GH+! IF you are planning the mixed route then that would be an easy adjustment you can do now by taking 25% water out and replacing with dechlorinated tap water, then adjust with the GH+ when you get it? This is the one I use, it is so simple as it is a liquid and even calculating is easy as each drop = +1gh (about 20ish TDS) / litre: https://www.pro-shrimp.co.uk/shrimp-king/803-shrimp-king-mineral-fluid-double-gh-4001615061413.html If you want to get this I have just done a dummy test on the website and you get delivery on it as long as it is one item, which is normal, but I thought you may need to pay as it is a bulky item to send? The soil should have lots of what the plants need I would have thought and the poop from the snails/shrimp must be some fertiliser? As JayC says you could leave the CO2 running for now as there are no shrimps, but I would probably turn it off and stop using fertiliser and just keep a close eye on the plants at this stage, after all you can start using them again IF the plants start looking unhealthy, but neither may be needed and it is better to know from the start and will make life easier long term. As I say I have never used either and my plants grow fantastic, in fact I wish they would grow slower, doh! Simon

      Ahhh ... the age old question of how to trigger your shrimp to breed. We will have to assume you have at least 1 male. What are you feeding them? Feed frozen bloodworms twice a week. The additional protein will give them more energy. Add more Indian Almond Leaves (aka Cattapa leaves) to the tank to promote more tannins and biofilm. Try raising temps to 23C or 74F. A 10% water change might help the females moult.
