Breeders n Keepers back issues

Recommended Posts

Blue Ridge

Does anyone know if these are in print anywhere? They don't seem to print nearly enough copies to meet demand, issue after issue sells out and is gone forever.

Have you actually seen one of these? I got one and it had great pictures but it isn't really about anything in particular and I binned the one I got as apart from the great photos there was nothing really of interest just bits and pieces about 'breeders n keepers', so I couldn't complain as that was what it was called. I wanted a book about all aspects of keeping shrimps and this wasn't that. I believe one f the experts has written a book and I wish I bought it when I saw it on my suppliers website as it has also gone now.

I recommend seeing one before buying though as it MAY not be what you want/think it is????

I got their Wild Shrimp China edition and loved it. It has amazing photos of wild-collecting many species currently in the hobby (as Chris L is known for) but also has water parameters, temps and such at each collection location. I haven't been able to actually get my hands on a B&K, but had high hopes.

The breeders and keepers also has some fantastic photos but not much else if my memory serves well enough, I can't check as I threw it out!

I think the book I wanted may have been by Chris as well but was supposed to cover everything on shrimps and crabs. Definitely one of those 'you should buy it when you see it' moments as have wondered ever since?

ProShrimp has the 3rd one and I expect they would send to USA?

You can get them on amazon and ebay, overpriced though!

Interestingly the feedback on the 1st one was pretty much the same as I thought and said.

Found the book I wanted so I appreciate you reminding me!

      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.

      If not prime,  you will have to use another de-chlorinator, as chlorine  will kill the bacteria. It might still cycle with prime,  but maybe a bit longer. Do you have access to one that doesn't bind ammonia?  No need to change the water  until you see ph drop below 6.5.

      Hi, I'm cycling a tank ATM and I'm using Dr Tim's ammonia, stability and I do have prime. But I was wondering if prime would stall the cycle since the bacteria need ammonia to feed and prime turns it into a.non toxic form?  My ammonia's been pretty high for the past week and I've been trying to do a partial water change to keep the levels down, not going down, no nitrites. But I did just start cycling it last week.

      It wasn't intentional, I was just putting the new shrimps into the tank, the dead shrimp just fell into the tank. I just purchased another 10 crabs today to make it a total of 22, but the shop put a few more in the bag for me, I will be keeping about 10 crabs, the others are for two of my friends, there tanks isn't setup yet, as these crabs are hard to obtain in Hong Kong, the last time I saw them available was over 5 years ago.
