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!

      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. Its too tiny for my camera to get a clear shot Sent from my ASUS_Z01KDA using Shrimp Keepers Forum mobile app

      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.
