Aww I am devastated you mean your banner hasn't reached those heights yet? No guessed it was some type of bio ball looks cool though. Should be your signature reaching for the moon.

Cheers ineke:encouragement:

Yeah BB and i win, lets start questioning deans shrimp trip to the moon.

Question 1: Why was no flag planted as traditionally?

Question 2: Why is there no stars like in space?

Question 3: Why is there rumours it was all made up in a shrimp room somewhere in Australia with everyone sworn to secrecy lol :P

100% behind your claims OzShrimp ....

The Moon landing conspiracy theories claim that some or all elements of the Dean and the associatedMoon landings werehoaxes staged by Boss Aquaria. The most notable claim is that theblue cherry shrimp did not walk on theMoon. Conspiracy theorists (henceforthconspiracists) base their claims on the notion that Dean and others knowingly misled the public into believing the landings happened by manufacturing, destroying, or tampering with evidence; including photos,telemetry tapes, transmissions,rock samples, and even some key witnesses.

Conspiracists have managed to sustain public interest in their theories for more than 4 days despite there being much third-party evidence for the landings and detailed rebuttals to the hoax claims. Polls taken in various locations have shown that between 50% and 80% of SKF members surveyed believe that the shrimp landings were faked. Even as late as this morning, the major members of SKF broadcast a documentary named Conspiracy Theory: Did Dean Shrimp Land on the Moon? claiming Boss Aquaria faked the first landing on 21/03/13 o win the Space Race.

Today, images were released showing the SKF flag on the Moon, placed there by OzShrimp & BlueBolts with the acclaimed shrimp astranaut Mr King Kong.

      Put them into the tank over 2 hours ago. Turned the light on quickly to have a look, no visible corpses and they seem to be enjoying themselves picking away at the wood. Fingers crossed, no major diasters yet. I know I shouldn't have, but I tipped them in, along with the water when I was acclimitising them in. Was bloody hard to net them in the bottom of the bucket. Edit - Even in the dark, its great to final see some life in the tank ūüėÄ

      You're fine as you are, you want some KH! You can slowly reduce the TDS by topping up the tank with just RO water, it is ok at 252 but that is pretty much regarded as the upper level (150-250). From here in you don't need to do ALL the tests every time just use the TDS when preparing new water and I would aim for about 200-220 when mixing new water as that way you have quite a margin for inaccuracy as it will probably be difficult to get it spot on anyway with the powder GH/KH+. As you are using the salty shrimp mineraliser that means the GH will tie in with the TDS anyway. Probably do fortnightly set of tests for the first few months just so you can be sure all is well? I'll keep my fingers crossed it is all plain sailing now! Enjoy watching your new shrimps and snails. Simon  Edit - suddenly realised what I wrote! YOU SHOULD ALWAYS top up with RO water as evaporated water leaves everything in the tank water anyway. To get the TDS down you can mix the new water to TDS 200-220 when you do a water change, or even use just RO water for the water change if it is very small and dripped into the tank!

      Thanks. I've got them drip acclimatising at the moment, 5 shrimp and 2 nerrite snails. CO2 is turned off, will keep it off for a few days. My TDS is 253. With my soil, is it worth switching to Salty Shrimp GH+, or should I keep using the GH/KH+
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Fantastic news!!! They may slow down/stop breeding in winter remember but that's not something you need to worry about at the moment. I think most people leave at least the back (I leave back and both sides) alone, to grow algae/biofilm, the babies especially like that? If you don't like seeing the growth on the back glass then you can get some black background to put behind the tank, this will also show the shrimps off better, especially babies if they are on the back???? Also as the sponge is black and the filter is also black etc they won't be so visually obvious????  Always great to hear a success story so thanks for the update! Simon
    • sdlTBfanUK
      GO FOR IT! As I wrote earlier mine are kept in KH2 and KH3 and do fine so I would think yours will be as well but just stretch out the acclimating as a precaution. My KH3 I use KH elixir which I got from ProShrimp but that was for the betta - incidentally using the elixir also increases the TDS, but I would go get those shrimps and see how you go first before trying to complicate things as I think they should be fine, so see how they go and expect maybe 1 or 2 may die in the first couple of weeks (expect that and if they don't you will be happier). As you say the soil is probably softening the water and that will stop eventually, so over time it will probably increase slowly, but my shrimp have lived for 5 years in KH2! Do you know what the TDS figure is now? Simon
