Hi everyone,

From NSW, Aus. I've been keeping CRS for the past 2 months. I think they are mostly A grade shrimp (nothing special). I'm hoping to breed some nice quality shrimp in the future. I've spotted a few shrimplets around the tank. Fingers crossed they grow into adults.

Tried to upload photos with tinypic but it doesn't seem to work on this forum.

Thanks

Can someone advise how to post photos? The photo attachment says the files are too big and it won't allow me to use normal image hosting websites like tinypic, photobucket etc.

I get an error message now

Any ideas? I've never had such trouble posting images on a forum. 

Thanks

May still be size of file??? I have to go onto computer and reduce the photo size before it will let me post photos?

Yep, sounds like a pretty large file! 

If you can, try reducing the size to 800x600 or so... that should bring the overall file size down...

Great pictures, glad you have worked out how to post them!

As for holiday feeding touched on other feed by JayC, most use Indian Almond Leaves asthey gradually break down and give a large area for biofilm to grow on etc.

Always exciting the first time you see babies....

Here are some of my 30c and RCS. It's been set up for 2 months and is growing in nicely. Zero algae issues yet and I hope to keep it that way. Ignore the dirty filter wool. The ADA substrate leached so much dust/grit so I put it on there to save the filter a little.

Nice tank and setup, you have the same as I do in a tank, Ember tetras, neons and Red Cherry shrimp! Yours looks better though as mine s a bit overgrown, yours is nice and tidy.

Thanks guys! I might start another thread where I can dump photos and ask questions.

My goal for the CRS is to get the white/red colour to be solid. Is this just a process of picking the best shrimp and culling the others from time to time?

Yes.

You can speed it up by picking up one SSS male and getting that to breed with the females, while the other males are moved out.

      I had bought some blue bolts and blue steel. The blue bolts were bluer (like your first blue bolt photo) and various patterns but the blue steel were a greyer blue (probably why they were called steel) and just the head with white/cream coloured body. I don't know whether that is the 'official' name or distinction but as you say I am sure they all originate from the same. The crystal reds ad blacks are good enough quality that they may even be Pure red line and Pure black line - they were my first unsuccessful attempt at Caridina shrimp. Hope you don't have to wait too long for the chiller? Simon

      Actually the ghost one is suppose to be a joke, Blue Bolt or Blue Steel, I don't actually know the different, so I just call them Blue Bolt, they originally from  the same species. I not sure about the Wine Red with the white band, but I have a CRS with red which is so dark, but not sure if it's that one, as 2 of the CRS I saved from being cooked had very dark red. Those Baby black is about a week old photo, they have grown, will just have to see it when it's bigger, they are spread out all around the tank.

      Have you seen the red wine with the white head at all? The second photo of blue bolt looks like a blue steel to me? The black and white look more Crystals than Taiwan bee/panda etc, good colour though and a nice variety of patterns? The same with the red ones though the red is better than normal which is usually more orange. Great pics, I can't really say what the 'ghost' is as it is too blurred, it looks like a blue steel, but I wouldn't rely on that based on that photo! Simon
