How are my cherries doing?

Recommended Posts

Hey all, i was looking in my tank today, found some pretty good looking cherries. Most of mine have those white lines down the back, but i found a few that look much much nicer today. Here they are.

Females

Male

Not sure

It's really hard to tell what i've got in the tank as there is a huge ball of moss that has somewhere between 30 and 100 shrimp living in it. I may see some good shrimp like this one day and then not see them again for a week.

Planning to catch these guys next time and see if i can get them their own tank.

Nice! If only the shrimp bred and survived as easy as the snails! I see you have quite a population of them!

Cheers guys, i really like the red legs, i believe thats one of the requirements for painted grading, if only i could trick the males into copying her :P

Mate, you should see the selective shrimp fry saver. Before shrimp it was a snail saver because i didn't have enough ramshorns, regretting it now. Another thing that breeds easier than shrimp, java moss, its everywhere. OOh found a photo of the frysaver. P2130041_zpsf0068e23.jpg

Lovely shrimp, and so glad to see I am not the only one battling ramshorn invasions. I just wish the equally quick breeding MTS would develop a taste for ramshorns or vis versa.

Wish my thumb didn't get wet or dirty when snails start to block my view of the tank. Assasin snails would be a nice solution.

The people that originally brought exotic shrimp to Australia could have really been a little more considerate and helped a brother out with some other nasty little inverts.

(no, i don't condone smuggling, i was just trying to be funny)

      Greetings shrimpkeepers, I have a 10 gallon tank in my basement. It gets very cool down there, especially in the winter. Right now the tank is unheated. I have some neos in there that seem to be doing alright. I would like to heat the tank but not have to constantly adjust for temperature fluctuations.    Can anyone recommend any automatic/adjustable aquarium heaters that will adjust as needed to a preset temperature? If so, please let me know.

      I found one of my fire red shrimplets swimming erratically with his back arched up and i siphoned him out. Found some sort of white or clear hair or something growing out from the front of the shrimp. He is still able to wiggle his legs and antennas but just seem to have no balance too. Any ideas?   Sent from my ASUS_Z01KDA using Shrimp Keepers Forum mobile app     This is the clearest pic i could find. Its too tiny for my camera to get a clear shot Sent from my ASUS_Z01KDA using Shrimp Keepers Forum mobile app

      Are you using a plant substrate like ADA Amazonia? If you are not, than ammonia won't get high enough to stall a cycle.   Just don't use too much Prime. Only enough to treat the amount of tap water being added. That should minimise any impact that it might have to bind ammonia.

      I'm considering water changing because I read that too high of an ammonia reading will also stall the cycle. I only have prime but I was reading conflicting results on if it stalls the cycle by not letting the bb feed. 🤔

      Yep, I see it too... Will look into this... Recently upgraded to the latest forum software... Always bugs to fix afterward... Thanks @Grubs for bringing this to my attention.
