Wow dude, that's a serious butt load of RCS, well done. I'd hate to be the one separating & grading them, it's gonna take hours, lol :encouragement:

Won't be sorting the whole lot as they are all shrimp lets from my program and coming up pretty good so it's more of a while I'm looking at the tank and spot one it will be added apart from that they'll all be used to colonise my tubs after I sell my e.blue colony as the melanogenys and cyps won't have too much of a drastic effect on their numbers.

the tank is an 8x2x2&2/3 my display tank but since I moved in to a house on piers it won't be going inside. Have to still clean and sterilise the filter before I plumb it back up so just threw all the shrimp lets in to grow up. With all that space im hoping they should also get a bit more size to them faster as well as over all size.

So I had a battle with green water and finally got my new pump in to help fix the problem. After a couple weeks the water has cleared up enough to present to you this next clip. Unfortunately the plants had suffered a bit from lack of light and the home made air driven filters are still in for a couple more weeks while the new filter colonises.

That has cleared up from when I last saw it mate. Gotta be happy with that. How do the peps in there look?

Pepps are around 2ft long... You must have over looked them as they're so big from all the algae they've been feeding on! Lol. Theyre all around 7-8cm now, one out the back in a crevice and a couple under the air drivens. Really don't know what happened to the others. They may still be in there. Will have to do a spotlight mission to confirm numbers.

will put a better clip up soon

      It must have been an aluminium heatsink. The Indium in Liquid metal will eat through aluminium. Only copper or nickel plated heatsinks can be used with liquid metal. It says so on the packet, at least my pack of Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut does.

      I will try to add all the old tank's shrimps at the end of August to the new tank, had a problem with my chiller this morning, try to make it more efficient by adding a better heat sink grease, I added a liquid metal grease, apparently you can't add liquid metal, when heating up, the heat sink turning to dust, along with part of the cooler inlet and outlet. So far the shrimps are ok.

      I have had the new shrimps a week and have ordered some new ones(10) for delivery friday. There are probably at least 6 of the 8 alive (they may even all be alive still) but as the tank is so densely planted it is difficult to tell, but I saw 2 black and 2 red this morning, as yesterday, but I'm sure 1 red and  1 black weren't the same as the ones I saw yesterday so there are probably at least 6, if that makes any sense??? Anyway that will be it for now and I will just let the tank and shrimps do there thing once this batch are in there in a couple of days, and I can get back to the usual routine as was, before this unfortunate event wiped out the last lot. All parameters are good, including the nitrates now, but there are a lot of brown patches on the plants and moss balls still......... It all looks a bit drab and uninspiring and brown!!! I probably just need to be a bit more patient? I will do some maintenance tomorrow and a small 2L water change, then the new shrimps will go in on friday after acclimatising. The shrimps were totally uninterested in the spinach or shrimp lolly I put in at the weekend but I am assuming they have so much biofilm at this stage that that is keeping them busy and well fed and they are staying under cover until they get used to their new environment and this strange ugly monster that keeps peering in at them through the glass from time to time? I guess if some 100ft tall bloke kept peering through my window a few times a day I would be a bit nervous/reserved shall we say? I removed the spinach and the shrimp lolly and put the shrimp lolly in the betta tank and within minutes there were 10 shrimp on it so there was definitely nothing wrong with that shrimp lolly!

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.
