Hi all

Recommended Posts


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.

      IME, the healthiest and highest quality has always buying directly from hobbyist, usually a small setup in their garage or fish room. Next was specialty store/importer, last is the local TFS, both often having stock that has been imported, transported and kept in less than ideal conditions... Buying directly from hobbyist has always produced the best results for me...

      Did boil a few times, the water wasn’t completely clear when I stopped cleaning it. So they should be getting some tannins. I was able to remove all but one rock, I have one more piece to put in in its plAce today.   Right on. I’m originally from Ohio, and I’ve been scoping out Flip’s videos and website for a few weeks now. Looks like I’ll be ordering from either Flip or AquaHuna after I get this tank works out completely.   TDS is already down slightly after removing the rock and doing a small water change. I also took the opportunity to remove some plants I wasn’t a fan of and replace them. Indian Almond Leaves came in today too, but my BacterAE is delayed. Thanks Amazon.🙄🙄

      Its about 1 cm its definitely of breeding age.. i would be happy if its male, but my eyes is untrained when it comes to fully colored males.

      I would think that is a male IF it is old enough to be able to tell but I think it is maybe too young to tell? This video should give you some handy tips for seeing the differences! https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/topic/14104-telling-male-from-female-shrimp/ Simon

      Im having a hard time trying to figure the gender of my shrimp.. so i know that virgin females is usually more skinnier than your usual large females..  My shrimp are mostly average grade fire reds, most of the males seems pale in coloration. Can anybody help me?
