Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

It has been a while since i posted here.

Just like to share the happy news that i have 2 berried crystals in my main 16litre tank.

 

It has been almost a year into crystal shrimps and this is my first time having some pregnant mummies.

 

Thank you jayc, simon and all who have posted threads on here regarding this hobby, i have learnt a great deal and have come a long way since i first started! Phew! I feel like i have achieved something haha.

I am happy to report that no shrimps are dying and we are growing.

 

Regards,

Jo

You're welcome Jo.

It's great to see you have so much success with your shrimps.

Nothing cuter than those baby CRS.

Great to have the update and so pleased to hear all is working out well. Those pictures are of lovely coloured/patterned crystals and it is fantastic that you have some babies, and the mother shrimp has grey eggs so they are probably not long before they hatch. You are pretty much there if you have babies and they survive, that's how I  feel anyway. I will be so pleased if I get to that point again but at the moment it is very drab but plodding on, very uninspiring!

Hope the other tanks are doing as well.

Hi Simon,
Yep! All the other tanks are doing great.
The yellow neos in the 10litre are breeding well. And the neon tetras are well too!

We are battling extremely hot and humid days over here in singapore.
I believe if i did not keep my tanks in the room with ac, their temps could reach 34°c

The ac is working very very hard indeed.
Well, i guess it just means more regular maintainence on it.

Regards,
Jo

      Greetings shrimpkeepers, I have a 10 gallon tank in my basement. It gets very cool down there, especially in the winter. Right now the tank is unheated. I have some neos in there that seem to be doing alright. I would like to heat the tank but not have to constantly adjust for temperature fluctuations.    Can anyone recommend any automatic/adjustable aquarium heaters that will adjust as needed to a preset temperature? If so, please let me know.

      I found one of my fire red shrimplets swimming erratically with his back arched up and i siphoned him out. Found some sort of white or clear hair or something growing out from the front of the shrimp. He is still able to wiggle his legs and antennas but just seem to have no balance too. Any ideas?   Sent from my ASUS_Z01KDA using Shrimp Keepers Forum mobile app     This is the clearest pic i could find.

      Are you using a plant substrate like ADA Amazonia? If you are not, than ammonia won't get high enough to stall a cycle.   Just don't use too much Prime. Only enough to treat the amount of tap water being added. That should minimise any impact that it might have to bind ammonia.

      I'm considering water changing because I read that too high of an ammonia reading will also stall the cycle. I only have prime but I was reading conflicting results on if it stalls the cycle by not letting the bb feed. 🤔

      Yep, I see it too... Will look into this... Recently upgraded to the latest forum software... Always bugs to fix afterward... Thanks @Grubs for bringing this to my attention.
