Taiwan Bee Shrimp Tank Journal #2

Recommended Posts

ShrimpDesigns

Following the creation of Taiwan Bee Shrimp Tank Journal #1 (http://www.aquariumlife.com.au/showthread.php/68743-Taiwan-Bee-Shrimp-Tank-Journal), I have decided to set up another tank dedicated to Taiwan Bees.

This has however ended my journey in breeding CPD's (http://www.aquariumlife.com.au/showthread.php/66596-Planted-CPD-Breding-Setup?highlight=)

Equipment
- PetWorx 40l tank as used in the CPD journal
- Up Aqua Pro U LED Light 45cm
- ADA Amazonia
- Co2, yes at the moment but will significantly reduce to a very slow 24/7 bubble count once shrimp are in
- Fluval C2 HOB Filter

Plants
- Staurogyne Repens
- Buce
- Dwarf Hairgrass
- Mini Christmas Moss
- Micro or Mini Java Fern which i might remove to make the tank look a little more minimal

Shrimp
- Will likely grab some culls from my other tank to see how they go with the very low co2 injection
- If these go alright will attempt to line breed some really nice shadow pandas or get into wine reds

Those are really great photos! I especially like the established tank (last  photo) and the beautiful shrimps. I'm sure the new tank will look just as fabulous once everything grows in!

It is so easy to get carried away in this hobby, how many of us have said 'just one more tank'???? I like the idea of a separate REDs tank! I just got 17 mixed red Taiwan bee shrimps this morning, acclimating those while writing this?

      Very nice tank set up, lush and green! The ember tetras look great in it as well. It is good to hear it is all going well and maybe the shrimp are slowing breeding as it is winter where you are so don't panic, hopefully the berried shrimp will give you a few shrimplets to watch soon! Simon

      Following this build. Looks cool Sub.  Sucks about your bad experience with the supplier. There is nothing worse than poor service.  Which State are you in?

      Been a while since I posted as the forum was busted and I couldn't log in for ages. I hope everyone's well. I set up a new ADA Mini M for the CRS last month. It's still cycling. Plants are growing in nicely and I've ordered an Oase FiltosSmart 100 with the integrated heater for it. Ive always used Eheims with an inline heater and I can't wait to try the Oase out. My cube is growing well too. The Cherry shrimp in there are breeding prolifically which makes for challenging water changes as I try not to suck shrimplets out. I put 10 CRS culls in there the other day and I'll be interested to see how they fair.  The CRS took a long hiatus from breeding recently. I was worried my water quality had gone to poo. Spotted a female carrying the other day so all's good in the world.
