Hi all

Sanoptic

G'day all,

Gave up on shrimp & planted tanks more than 18months but my interest is now back.

I have a goldfish tank with 3 large Orandas & when i pulled down my shrimp tank i threw some Cherries i had left over in with the goldfish.

Most were eaten but a few survived & last time i cleaned the canister filter there were more than 20 RCS living in there.

The water temp is about 15c & the shrimp do just great.

So now i have one small 30 lt shrimp tank with some Moss & driftwood & while it does not look at great as other tanks on this forum i am quite happy

with it.

Of coarse there is a heater in it set to 23c & the shrimp are very active.

Cheers guys:D

Hi Mate, welcome to the forum.

glad your getting back into shrimp again as they are great to watch and keep.

the only person that your tank needs to look good for is yourself so dont be worried about how it looks and

please feel free to share some pics with us all.

ANY SHRIMP TANK IS A SEXY TANK :victorious:

      Thats interesting that you feel the same in USA with it being a much bigger country, I had thought that maybe it was a lot more difficult/risky transporting live shrimps because of that, and assumed it takes longer, or is ridiculously expensive? Thanks for that, most interesting. Simon

      When you say a ghost town I hope you don't mean the shrimp are dying off? When I set up my Betta tank I think I mentioned the soil was fighting with the water and I was getting PH of about 6 for a few months and it has crept up more recently. The culls I dumped in there were fine at the low PH etc so I would be amazed if that caused too much of a problem! If you now don''t have any shrimps in there maybe I would put the rock back into the tank so that can speed up the exhausting of the buffering substrate and it would probably be safer to wait until the substrate isn't buffering before buying any more shrimps as a precaution for a while?  Oh I see JayC beat me to it........ hopefully what you mean then is the forum ghost town and not the tank? Simon edit - I like the Green shrimps but dismissed them as the plants are also green so they will be very difficult to see, green on green, if that makes sense. Just something to consider?

      Not the best photo of the fish. Have you checked your water parameters?

      Yeah, there was an issue with SKFA forums or the servers its on for many hours. That would have been why no one was around to respond.   That rock was buffering the pH. Now that it's gone, the water is returning to it's normal pH range. Well normal but for the substrate buffering it lower. You can try adding a small piece of the rock back in - that's one quick option.

      Hey guys, I noticed a couple of days ago that one of my female rocket killies has some sort of disease or injury on her side, and I have no experience with fish diseases at all, so can I get some help with working out what it is and what to do about it? One of my female endlers also has a little white line on the end of her tail, and I just noticed this as well. Please help me with identifying the problems and fixing them.
