Dan's Cherrys

Recommended Posts

Dan

Hey guys,

While I was doing a water change yesterday, decided to get a few quick pics of some of the cherrys I'm currently keeping.

2 colour variations from Dean's Pumpkins, looking forward to seeing how their babies turn out.

Thanks Aquathumb and Kitz! :)

Unfortunately I don't think any males are in there Kitz. :)

History of the cherry reds is I first got them when they entered the market a few years ago and someone got them over to WA in a group buy.

Lost interest and chucked them in the pond and then they multiplied like rabbits and only recently I took some out to start up again and this is how they turned out.

The few who have been to my place are generally surprised at the colour they are from being brought up in the pond. Not sure if it is just environmental factors that made them go that colour but they are just normal reds. :)

Thanks

Dan

I was one of the lucky ones who netted some red cherries out of the pond and they were wow !

Interestingly, I found a red rilli in my pond during Xmas, that must have accidentally got chucked in the pond from my tanks when I was trimming my mosses...she was super bright red...must be the natural algae etc...the hot her so bright and big....now, she's not as vibrant s as she use to be, but a nice specimens nevertheless.

      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!
