"Hand" Feeding Shrimps ...

Recommended Posts

BlueBolts

With my eccentric nature, and attempts to formulate a sure way to acclimatise newly acquired shrimps, etc, I use this method of "hand" feeding shrimps, to ensure they settle in well, and get some immediate nutrition. I've practised this with all my exotic shrimps over the past 12+ months, and have 100% success rate...no doubt water parameters, quality of stock...etc, have a critical role, but ensuring they have food/nutrition in them whilst settling in, is as critical. I do this ONLY for the 1st 3 days, and if they're eating and taking the food well, I stop worrying... Also use this routine for berried females .....

Yes tried it, but it doesn't show it like a TV on the thread ? Unsure whether its just the way photobucket does it. Will start another thread asking this question.

It just comes up as a pic and then you click on it and takes you to photobucket.

Works for me now, The shrimp dont even seem scared to eat it from the tweezers :encouragement:

      Fantastic photos and great that the RO water unit and pen arrived so promptly! It is always exciting when you get a batch of shrimplets - something I am looking forward too! Simon

      Springs here, so maybe the shrimp are more active for breeding? Hope you are collecting the waste RO water for watering your plants.

      Bought an RO DI unit from FSA. Free postage and it arrived in 2 days. Very happy. The TDS pen arrived today so I got busy. For reference, I’m about 2 hours North of Sydney. Tap water: TDS 155-157. PH 7-7.2 RO water: TDS 0-1 (Remineralised to 150). PH 6.6 CRS tank water: TDS 198. PH 7-7.2 I siphoned a vey small amount of tank water and am in the process of drip feeding the RO water into the tank. I’ll do this method during water changes until the tank water PH is at 6.6 I guess.  Also found new born shrimplets yesterday and two more berried females. I haven’t seen any berried in about a month so I’m happy.

      But the shrimp will be thinking otherwise. Look at all that yummy brown diatom!
