KH concerns for neo's in Caridina tanks

Recommended Posts

KaridinaGal

Hi everyone, I have read there's a number if shrimp keepers who keep Neo's in with their Bees, Mischlings, Pinto's etc.

I was liking that idea, as the two species don't interbreed, but my question is, will the Cherry's still be happy in such a low KH environment?

I'd live to keep my yellow cherry's with my mischlings, but I still want them to breed etc., Won't they be at a disadvantage is the water parameters aren't their ideal?

 

Thanks in advance for any & all advice about this

I have kept my Neos in Caridina WP"s for over 6 years. The quality of the shrimp seems to stay just as good as when they were in Neo WP"s. Initially you may see a slight slowing down of breeding but then they just take off. As you can see my Yellows aren't suffering596ea7c3a50bc_IMG_20170511_115953_zpspx2nqeth(1).thumb.JPG.7ea57080c9f07da6a562ce326ee741a9.JPG

Drip acclimatise them initially, so they don't get a shock to the new conditions.

      That's the way to go I reckon.

      Same here with my chillers. One Teco branded and the other Hailea. Both are do the same. Those are small temp differences and nothing to worry about. Also, depending on where the temp probe, you can get different temps in one tank. For example, the temps on the leftmost side of the tank can be a few degrees off compared to the rightmost side of the tank. It's just how it is.

      I really want one now, lol. I’ve looked at pictures and I want one!😂   Side note, but related, I joint an all shrimp group on FaceBook. The shrimp these people are breeding are breathtaking.

      Don't worry about Crystal browns as they are so rare you are unlikely to get one, but if you do you won't want to cull it or give it away (just treasure it, I would), that would be madness.................. (scroll down for picture)! Simon

      Thanks. I’m not too concerned, if I get some browns, I’ll cull them into the cull tank. My buddy has a 75 gallon he wants to stock up with anything I don’t want, so the culls have a permanent home. I’m not looking to develop a super straight or pure line anyway, I just like the shrimps. Besides, I already have both in the tank😂 Top off is done with pure RODI, this is something I learned from salt tanks. Thanks for the advice, but I assume it has to do with feeding ETC since I’ve been using pure water for top offs. Ah, I gotcha. Thanks for the response. I’ve really noticed the creep increasing since I’ve started dosing the Shrimp Fit. While it isn’t a lot, it’s more than when I was dosing just BacterAE. Previously I saw less of an increase. My main concern was how it may affect the shrimp.     With the mix of CBS/CRS, what ratio of browns might I end up with? Will they have similar patterns to other crystals, but with the colored portion being brown? I actually don’t hate that.... Based on my reading, the brown should be somewhat the odd one out, correct? And if I’m not mistaken, somewhat of a generational dependent mutation. 2-3 generations in or so?
