I have had the same with my pictures. I use my computer to edit them to get them to a smaller KB size by reducing the size of the photos etc.

I don't have a mobile (yes we do exist), but can you change the settings on that to a lesser setting?

You can use a program like Paint (click) to reduce the size of the image.

Otherwise, you can upload the image to an image hosting website, make sure image is public, and share the link.

My photos were below 500kb so you may still be a bit large???? Thats only a guess though!!!

A real stab in the dark but if it is a recently set up tank, it may be fungus, that isnt a rare occurance with new tanks. There is a photo on this recent post if that helps?

      At the time, those babies grown and had babies, those babies also had their babies, during that time, I did not add bacter AE, I never knew what it was, and I was only a beginner, @sdlTBfanUKhelped alot along with @jayc oh, had average 20 babies for each mother shrimp.

      I agree that there probably likely to have more survive with food but if you have 10 already (and there are probably many hiding) that is a good start and it is probably better to get half a dozen each batch (month) than over-run too quickly! You should be fine not using baby food at the moment with the number of babies you have! I had extraordinary survival rates in the original 15L tank which I assume is because they all got some food being such a small tank. Within months of the 8 shrimps breeding I got about 150 babies - it was panic time to get a bigger tank set up! Simon

      I am more of a give a plant a go and it either lives or not, though I don't think anything has died off thus far! I don't know what plants are available to you but they are a personal choice for you to make so just see what there is? I wouldn't use CO2 but if you do decide to use the Flourish excel I would do it slowly starting with half dose etc! I have had algae before with new tanks but it has just cleared up with time on it's own, I guess when the whole system has sorted/balanced itself out! Simon

      Maybe around 10 or so I know that many people claim to have increased baby survival rate by dosing various baby foods or Bacter AE.  What has your survival rate been?

      No plants ‘require’ CO2 so to speak, but it helps boost growth. Flourish excel is basically bottled CO2, so you could do that. Most red plants will just grow a bit greener without CO2. I have some variety of Ludwigia repens, and it stays pretty red, as the leaves reach higher toward the light. But the best thing to do is just try something. Test it out, see what works and what doesn’t, because nobody‘s tanks are the same.
