A Little Competition ( Australia Only)

Received the Blue Star Endlers today, and just finished acclimating them for the last 9+ hours.

Moved them into their own tank. Lights are off for them to get used to it. 

Thanks again Wayne.

They were so difficult to shoot. Constantly moving.

The camera doesn't do this fish justice. The tail section that might look silver in colour in the above pics, is actually refracting more of a blue green colour in real life.

Looking good They may not colour up properly for a couple of weeks after they settle down 

Enjoy

      Neocaridina GH 6-8, TDS 150-250 Caridina GH 4-6, TDS 120-180 I suspect he just got the wrong word out and meant neocaridina! Simon

      I saw a you tube video from Flip aquatics and he said cardinia want gh 6-8 but if I use the gh+ to get it that high then my tds is 180-200?
    • sdlTBfanUK
      The TDS of 130-150 is perfecr for caridina shrimp, as is the GH 4-5 so there is no problem there! If you are using the shrimp GH+ with RO water then it is perfectly balanced for shrimps and try not to obsess about hitting an exact figure balance. I had some waterlouse in one of my tanks so i had to re-do the tank. It was a long time ago but it worked and haven't had any since. I was using leaves from a pond and that must have been how they got into the tank. I didn't use any chemicals just took everything out and checked it, and re-set it up, using the same plants etc but carefully checking there were no hitchhikers. They weren't difficult to catch but without removing everything you won't know if you have got them all? You can just put the shrimp and fish in a bucket temporarily while you do the tank. Even filters etc will need to be checked/cleaned as well of course! Be very thorough and don't rush through it and be careful with any equipment like nets as you don't want to accidently transfer a tiny scud to another tank etc. As JayC says any chemicals will also likely kill shrimps so you would still need to remove them if you want to use chemicals!  Simon

      Only way is to physically catch them either with a net or a trap. Unfortunately any chemical treatment will kill scuds will also impact shrimps.   150 TDS is still ok for Caridina.

      So now my neo tank I infested with scuds...... is there any safe way to eliminate them? Without removing all shrimp? Also I started a 20 gallon long for cardinias. matten filter tds130 but I can’t get the gh  above 4-5 without raising the tds over 150 what am I doing wrong? i use rodi water  tds0 with shrimp king gh+ Using Brightwell substrate
