golden vine

Recommended Posts

Hi All, I have golden vine in my 2 nano tanks.I soaked them for 1 week changing the water every day. I noticed both of them have a white slimy film on them. the shrimp don't seem to be bothered by it. 1 tank has had 6 shrimp in it for a week now and all seem fine. The slime didn't start until 2 days after going in the tank . I was taking it out and wiping the slime off but now I am just leaving it ,I haven't seen this before does anyone know anything about it.

Cheers

Ineke

Yep perfectly normal with gold vine. Doesnt cause any harm. Keep wiping it down if it bothers you. It will go away in a few weeks.

      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!
