Hi all

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:

      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.

      It may be a good idea to 'at least' decide Bee shrimp or Cherry shrimp at this stage, as they prefer different water parameters and you can then work towards those ideals? As blue ridge has said, Flip import most of their shrimp from what I have seen on the youtube videos? Simon

      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???? Simon

      Gotcha. I’ve really been eyeing some ,”Fire Reds,” or some,”Blue Dreams,” from LRBretz, those are out of this world.

      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.
