Not yet Marcus, I do have some other stuff for you, next week I will be catching up on every thing as there is a few orders to go out.

The week of 35+ here was so unusual and wiped out heaps of things on me, a normal heat wave for us is 1 and if we are unlucky 2 days at 35, not days of 35+.

Have not even lifted a tool yet DAM, got to wait for approvals and all the BS, going to build a green house down the side to get more tanks going and when the shed is done I will grow plants on wood in the green house.

When I get going on any of them I will post a thread on the progress, Are you volunteering to come over and help LOL

I'm with you on the natives. We do have some seriously awesome native species here in AU. Chameleons are awesome to have in a tank with the variety of colours and patterns they display. I'm also a huge fan of the red nose shrimp. They look great and I just love the way they swim through the tank, really unusual swimming style like a helicopter hovering around the tank.

      My parents have an aquarium, so I don't know if this will help, but still want to leave a suggestion. They also liked the idea of installing a light strip in it, so they started looking on amazon. I don't know what went wrong, but it broke on the fifth day of use. I think it was a cheap Chinese thing (although the website told me it was waterproof and durable). They asked me for help finding a better option, and I advised them of the smart LED multi-color light strips I used in my car. Being pretty skeptical, my dad still decided to try them. They have been working fine for a month now and don't even flicker. Mom says the fish are happy, lol. I hope my comment was helpful

      It's not looking good. Quarantine any shrimp showing Necrosis, as it can be infectious. Tell us what your water parameters are, and do a heavy water change after that. Increase surface agitation to get more oxygen into the water. A bit of H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) into the water to increase oxygen might also help the shrimps that have not yet contracted this.

      Sorry to see you have a problem. Try reading the section on 'muscular necrosis' in the below section. You will need to scroll down through it until you see the bold red heading of that description (it is quite a large article covering many problems etc, it is about the 5th item on the first page);   I don't have any personal experience of this but do ask any questions as someone may be able to help. A bit more general info may also  help, your setup, number of shrimps, how long you have had the shrimps, any water parameters you may have etc?

      Hello, I was wondering if anyone here had any first-hand information on these particular pictures. It describes exactly what a few of my shrimp have. The second picture is spot on and most accurate. Thanks

      #4 looks almost like a juvenile female to me, just looking at the abdomen in the top left image, but definitely looks more male in the other two images. The colour suggests it is an adult though, and it’s lacking a clear  so Simon is probably right in thinking it is male, that top left image is just confusing me a bit. If you’re going to get a female, to be sure, make sure it’s got an obvious yellow saddle. That’ll help you know it’s mature as well.
