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.

      The tanks are only 16L, for it to reach 31c, it isn't hard.

      Sorry to hear that.  Wow, the temperature must have been very hot for the water to get to 31degC.

      It's room temperature, during the past week Hong Kong has become an oven. I will get another water cooler before I start again. The 3 shrimps seems to be doing well for the past 11 hrs.

      Well, what can I say, de ja vu, was it a heater malfunction or just ambient room temperature? I wouldn't hold out too much hope for the 3 survivors either if my experience was anything to go by - but I will keep my fingers crossed they survive! Really sorry to hear the news and if anyone can feel your pain that would be me. Hopefully you can just remove the cooked shrimps and start again without having to go through the whole process of re-setting up the tank and cycling from scratch like I am? Hope everything is going well with the old tank. The shops sound similar to ours in old towns, they started as houses and then get divided to shops street level and basement and the upper floors are either offices or residential. Simon

      update, some upsetting new, all shrimps except 3 has died in the new tank, as the water in the tank went upto 31 celcius, the other 3 was half dying, I put them into the old tank, and seem to be ok for now.
