New tank setup for yellow shrimps.

Recommended Posts

Oh my!! Erm i hope my dogs did not eat them??
Yep they have a cover on there. And its a fitted cover, gotta unlatch from the hinges before you can remove it entirely.
Well, im sure they will pop out somewhere.
Just really puzzled where did they go unless they went cannibalistic and ate each other.
(They are fed very well) so im guessing no they would not do that.
The tank is really clean, so im really curious where they went.

We shall see about the culls, i look at them so happy and safe in the main tank, to move them in with the tetras requires me to harden my heart a little. I mean, they could be fish food:(

Am just playing around with the thought of having a small tank setup for them but that is just more work..

That is a mystery then, maybe they are hiding somewhere. If you have snails in with them then they will eat the dead bodies? Hope you see them swimming around soon. I don't think they will turn to eating each other, even a dead one??

I wouldn't worry too much about putting them in with the neons, I have had red cherrys in with my neons for years, there is such a small chance of them getting eaten that it isn't really worth setting up a special tank! You would probably not transfer them as newborns either as you need to give them time to be sure of the colour etc. They will be happier in the bigger fish tank as well!

Ok will keep that in mind it probably is not going to be a bad idea after all. (The culls)

Will look around for the 3 missing neons.
It is not a big tank, really a mystery where they went.

Just one quick last thought on putting the culls in the tetra tank. You probably haven't witnessed it yet if you haven't kept them with fish but they can dart across a tank like nothing else I have seen if they want or need to (backwards so I guess its a flick of the tail), way way quicker than a neon can swim - it has to be seen to be believed.................... though in reality you can't even see it as it is so fast!

Great news, the others will be hiding in there somewhere as would be their instinct, but always good to see one occasionally popping out!

Happy monday everyone!
Woke up this morning to a berried female!
This will be my first berried female happening due to stable tank conditions!
The previous pregnancies were all because i happen to buy shrimps that were already berried!
I cant be happier!
Here is thanking all of you for guiding me along with your lessons and teachings.
I am so happy! It has been quite a journey from multiple shrimp deaths to now a berried female!
Thank youd7c7173ac41296048a753c492b7dc9c1.jpg

Well done @jojowhisky.

Many more berried shrimps to come, I'm sure.

Hello everyone,
Did a water change today and saw this little guy! This was one of the baby shrimps that was hatched artifically awhile ago!
This guy has grown and putting on some colour!
Just thought of sharing the joy with everyone! Growing babies are good news!
Mama shrimp is as well doing good!
Have a happy saturday everyone!

      Thats interesting that you feel the same in USA with it being a much bigger country, I had thought that maybe it was a lot more difficult/risky transporting live shrimps because of that, and assumed it takes longer, or is ridiculously expensive? Thanks for that, most interesting. Simon

      When you say a ghost town I hope you don't mean the shrimp are dying off? When I set up my Betta tank I think I mentioned the soil was fighting with the water and I was getting PH of abut 6 for a few months and it has crept up more recently. The culls I dumped in there were fine at the low PH etc so I would be amazed if that caused too much of a problem! If you now don''t have any shrimps in there maybe I would put the rock back into the tank so that can speed up the exhausting of the buffering substrate and it would probably be safer to wait until the substrate isn't buffering before buying any more shrimps as a precaution for a while?  Oh I see JayC beat me to it........ hopefully what you mean then is the forum ghost town and not the tank?

      Not the best photo of the fish. Have you checked your water parameters?
    • jayc
      Yeah, there was an issue with SKFA forums or the servers its on for many hours. That would have been why no one was around to respond.   That rock was buffering the pH. Now that it's gone, the water is returning to it's normal pH range. Well normal but for the substrate buffering it lower. You can try adding a small piece of the rock back in - that's one quick option.

      Hey guys, I noticed a couple of days ago that one of my female rocket killies has some sort of disease or injury on her side, and I have no experience with fish diseases at all, so can I get some help with working out what it is and what to do about it? One of my female endlers also has a little white line on the end of her tail, and I just noticed this as well. Please help me with identifying the problems and fixing them.
