So I did some research on chimerism in shrimp today. It appears it is true chimerism and apparently some shrimp exhibiting are either sterile or unable to breed due to potentially mixed sex organs.
I believe I know a common origin point of chimeras, and also that I know who the dam(?) of that shrimp is and that she conferred the trait. For now mum is the word until I test my theories by inbreeding the pair and or outbreeding the chimera.
So i would just follow your ratio ca:mg as per your diy mix for the sulawesi?
besides using ro water to dissolve it, are there any other easier ways to make it dissolve in water? And when you mean cold, is like 20celcius okay?
Sorry if im wrong, pounded down as in getting a mortar and pestle and pounding it down? Sorry if im asking too much
Finally got photos of my chimera! I'm trying to find another for sale for crossings. Or maybe offspring as people don't want to part with them.
Here is the 36 gal, mostly planted. EBB and metallic galaxies going in here today, for now.
First scape. Tried a bunch of rocks to no end. Lost most of the slope. I think primordial was achieved though. 20+ plants, won't go into them unless someone asks. Been hitting them with gentle light, co2 and ferts.
A ghostie just cuz.
Red onyx are gorgeous and gregarious shrimp.
Still haven't got a good photo of the emeralds and I'm sure everyone knows blue diamonds.
I'll go hunt up pics of the shrimps incoming in the future so we can compare them to actual shrimps down the road. Adios
I don't keep Sulawesi shrimp. So if i buy the ingredients for it, they won't get used and will be a waste of my money. Hope you understand.
If you still want to try making it look for
Calcium Chloride Dihydrate
Magnesium chloride hexahydrate
For Neos, you replace the Calcium sulphate with Calcium carbonate completely. So the formula will look like this ...
Calcium carbonate CaCO3
Magnesium Sulphate (Epsom Salt) MgSO4
solubility of CaCO3 is a lot worse in water compared to CaSO4. The acidity in RO water will help. Cold RO water will help it dissolve more too.
The CaCO3 needs to be pounded down as fine as possible to help it dissolve.
