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?

      Great picture and love the shrimplets. Also pleased to hear it is all working so well! Do you now what the PH is of the new 20G tank? Simon

      That sounds great and pleased you have decided to go ahead. As you don't have any occupants in the tank at the moment it should be easy to get the tank parameters right by doing the planned water changes and add very little of the GH/KH+ until you have done the last large water change on Tuesday, that way it is easier to add the GH/KH+ to the level you want directly into the tank then - easier than finding it is over and having to get it down?  IF you were thinking of getting the shrimps from ProShrimp, they have quite a variety, bear in mind that there is postage cost only to a certain value (I think it is £35) so it may be better value to order a few more shrimps instead of paying the postage - if that makes sense??? If you are having them delivered Prohrimp or ebay you need to be home to sign/receive them obviously and IF using ebay MAKE SURE the seller is sending 'Express Delivery (Royal Mail Special Delivery (TM) 1:00 pm)'! Hopefully we will hear that everything has worked out well and all the hassle hasn't marred the experience.  Simon

      I am sorry for some reasons the picture did not go through the last time 🙂 Also, I am cycling 3 more tanks for a new journey with Taiwan Bee shrimps 🙂

      If there are no shrimps in the tank, you can do a 100% water change with water that is adjusted to your liking with Salty shrimp GH/KH+.
