So i moved house and had to pull down my rack and it looked like crap and was only a temp set up but it got me through.

I finally got time to clean out the room i wanted to use and make some progress so here is where I’m at.

The aim is to eventually build it in so it looks basically like shops display, more tanks on top and more shrimp

I also upgraded the standpipes prefilter situation from

The strainers are just a $1.70 ebay specials, i pulled the bottom off them and they fit the inside of the Pipe really well, then i dribble a little pipe cement around them to hold/ make sure nothing crawls past any little crinkles formed when i jammed it in the Pipe . It flows sooooooo much more water with out the risk of blocking quickly.

The room is looking great, as us the Buce flower, i need to make myself a room, or at least a rack, I have tanks all over the place, my family keep saying I'll need to rent a place soon as the shrimp are taking over & there's gonna be no room left for humans soon lol.

      I am sorry for some reasons the picture did not go through the last time 🙂 Also, I am cycling 3 more tanks for a new journey with Taiwan Bee shrimps 🙂

      If there are no shrimps in the tank, you can do a 100% water change with water that is adjusted to your liking with Salty shrimp GH/KH+.

      Hello everyone, This is my first post at SKF Aquatics forum.  I came across this forum by reading the amazing post about breeding Taiwan Bees shrimp written by Jayc.  Regarding my first post, I just want to share with everyone the result that I've got from my little experiment with my current colony of PRL CRS.  A little bit about myself, I've been keeping all kind of shrimps over the last 3 years, starting with ghost shrimps, then move on the Amano shrimps, then cherry shrimps, and now I have 4 tanks of 2000+ PRL CRS and CBS.  About 6 months ago, after having some difficult time of finding ADA at a good price, I decided to start an experiment on keeping PRL CRS in a tank without active substrate to see if it's possible as well as if there are any problems of not having an active substrate.  I setup a 20 gallon tank with regular cheap gravel, 1 driftwood, 1 cholla wood, some annubias, and some subwassertang.  I use RODI water and remineralize it to the TDS of 130.  pH of my RODI water is 7.2 to 7.5.  I did not cycle the new tank because I was using two sponge filters from the other existing tanks.  I then moved 25 PRL CRS from well-established tank that has pH of 6.6 and TDS of 135 to the new tank.  After about 6 months, the result that I got is pretty amazing.  I've got tons of baby shrimps and lots of berried female.  Attached is the picture of the experiment tank 🙂
