Thanks, a while ago I did hear of "coke" shrimp but I don't think I ever saw any pictures of them. But to me she reminds me of Cadbury Milk chocolate. I will be very intereseted to see what the next generation brings from this tank.

Just got some new photos of my chocolate cherry shrimp. The large dark female with the pronounced stripe is the remaining surviving female from the first crossing of a black male cherry to a dark red female (the other shrimp sadly got scoffed by the damsel fly invasion grrrrr) . The other two are the recent freebies I was sent from Durro68. P1000641_zpsb2598d0f.jpg P1000647_zpsee7217bf.jpg

      Usually temperatures in cellars are pretty constant (if it is underground)? I can confirm that even branded heaters can cook the shrimp (learnt that the hard way), it happened to me so a controller is a good idea. If you are that bothered about the temperature being the same and the cellar does fluctuate a lot you may also need a cooler, depending on where you are based?  Simon

      Very sorry to hear about the tank overheating and wiping out your shrimps! Can you get a 2 plug adapter and have the heater and cooler plugged into that overheating safety device as extra security? I now what happened is probably just a freaky thing (who would expect a cooler to heat the water?) that probably won't happen again but you won't be happy with loosing the crabs???? Hopefully the shrimps will be ok with the micro crabs (beautiful red wine in the picture)? Most of the stringy algae has gone in my shrimp tank so I will do maintenance tomorrow, tests at the weekend and if all is ok I will order the (final) red shrimps next week. Thumbs up for perseverance! Simon

      They were purchased after the incident, but I'm happy I found the crabs.😅

      I use cheap no name brand heaters now. I use them with my Inkbird temp controller, so I don't have to worry about the heater failing. ✌️

      😲 Oh no !!! 😭 At least you still have the micro crabs and 3 red wines.
