AMAZONAS magazine

Recommended Posts

fishmosy

Don't know if anyone else has come across this magazine, but I've been subscribed to it (digital edition) since they first started putting out an english version (its German based). Its a great mag, not quite to the standard of PFK, but best of all it regularly has articles on shrimp.

You can download the first and maybe second mag from their website for free. Check it out.

Mods please delete if not OK:

I thought there would be problems with copyright ect, but every new issue notification I get from AMAZONAS says to share the mag with friends. I'm happy to send the later issues via email to active members of this forum, just be aware that the pdf file sizes are huge (around 15mb).

I also think it is one of the best German aquarium magazines on the market. Although we have a crustaceen magazine out (CARIDINA), it not reaches the quality of the AMAZONAS. I add the link to the shrimp dedicated issue:

I am sorry to say that it is a GERMAN volume I had, with focus on Sulawesi shrimp :( However, I thought you might like the pictures, as Evers talks about his Sulawesi trip and shows a lot of unidentified species.... Does anybody know if the publishing house ships the analog magazines to your country?

Issue 2 (dedicated shrimp issue) is pretty good and influenced the way in which i set up my shrimp tank. The latest issue has a sweet article on breeding sulawesi shrimp that left me drooling....want some bad.

Also want some tylomenia or rabbit snails. Kinda off topic but does anyone know if they are here yet?

      That’s a cool idea! I would be interested in testing that out as well at some point. Let us know if you try it!

      We don't get the heat you do their but I am planning to get a cooler, a fan when we get to spring if the shrimps do well. I don't know whether that type of cooler is available where you are and it may not be powerful enough anyway. I will just put it on the tank when needed, but thats unlikely to be often here, and so  easy to set up. Obviously this isn't any good where you are based but I wanted to show an alternative to the chiller in case that suits? https://www.pro-shrimp.co.uk/aquarium-coolers/3100-jbl-cooler-200-aquarium-cooler-4014162604293.html?search_query=cooler&results=8  Believe me when I say you don't want to go through the heartache of cooked shrimps, I am still gutted 6 months later and the new lot will never be the same???? CO2 and shrimps is very risky and so I wouldn't use it, especially if it isn't needed and everything is ok? Simon

      Shame there aren't more active locals. I don't have one Simon. I've thought to buy one multiple times. A couple of reasons why I didn't: 1. CRS survived last summer. Tank got to 27-28 degrees some days when we weren't home and I never had any deaths. Not saying it won't happen in the future, but they appear to be hardier than I first thought. 2. My other half isn't keen on another canister filter to run a chiller, fearing leaks. Don't ask lol. I would've bought another Eheim 2213. I have one on my 30C and its perfect. On another note, I just bought a CO2Art Pro-SE regulator. Planning on running CO2 on the 30C. Still need to get a gas cylinder. I have limited cabinet space so I have to work out what will fit as I want the biggest cylinder I can get. I also need to figure out if I run an inline reactor or diffuser in the tank. Any suggestions? I believe inline is the most efficient, but I don't know of any drawbacks. Lizzy

      Great news and hopefully you SHOULD be ok as you have at least got the tank/water sorted before getting the shrimps! There are a lot of jaw dropping aquascapes out there on youtube but as  you have said it is so much more interesting to see movement/life in the tanks? Even in small quantities, it just adds so much more? The shrimps may well moult due to the changes in the water so don't panic if you see a 'Ghost' or 2! Were the shrimps big enough that you can tell whether they are male or female?  Also they may hide more than you expect, until they are 'comfortable' with their new home. Simon

      When I used TAP water for my Betta the JBL soil I used (may not be available where you are though) exhausted its PH buffering in about 3 months, if that is any help - didn't take long! Incidentally, has anyone ever tried exhausting a soil substrate buffering by adding PH plus, before adding any occupants, I am assuming that will speed up the process. I may get some and give it a go as an experiment? next time I do an order????? Simon
