Hi All!

I live in Sweden, near Gothenburg. 

I´m just starting with shrimps but I have had aquariums for may years but only with fish.

There was a few years without fishtanks when my kids was small and there was lack of time..

But now I have started a 105 liters with some Endlers guppies and Red Cherry shrims.

I´m moving them from a 16 liter tank to the 105 tank today!

It has been hard to keep stabile water parameters in the small tank... :-(

I have only had shrimps for some 4 months..

Best regards!

Hi ad Thanks!

My 105 liter tank is up and running...

I have JBL Shrimp substrate in tap water... I added some GH+ so GH is 7-10 right now..

Dont know TDS yet... The meter is in transition... and with curret regulations here in sweden it looks like I will have to wait a while for it :-(

Q: does snybody else use JBL Shrimp substate? 

Can u overdose substrate?

My Ph is low... Below 6.0...

Yes U guesst it... The Ph-meter is in the mail too.... 😒


Best regards!

      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
