Recommended Posts

ineke

Woohoo my motley crew of yellow culls with only one female have done the deed. I HAVE A BERRIED FEMALE :victorious::victorious: know over kill but I'm excited even if they are culls. I will find out if my theory of good genes being carried by culls is right or not. What a lovely sight a berried yellow is , quite different than the reds!!!!

Cheers

Thank you Squiggle LOl I don't know why we take the compliments the shrimp did the work. I'm just happy to see a berried yellow maybe the bee pollen I gave them got them in the mood!!!! Doesn't seem to be an abundance of Yellows in SA rarely see them offered for sale. An opening there for me if I improve my stock????

Cheers

Yes it's a yellow girl but here's the thing today is the first day all five yellows have come out to play at the same time. I think I have been seeing the same 2 or 3 all the time because there is another quite big one that looks like a girl but she doesn't have a saddle yet. I know I have 1 definite boy as he has done the deed and at the moment is doing the dance!!! I have 1 berried girl, 1 saddled girl ,1 that I'm pretty sure is a girl and 1 smaller one that is open to debate. I think I got so caught up in looking for saddles that I didn't really LOOK at the shrimp! I don't have a clue why they would all suddenly stop hiding and come out to play? At least I've learnt one thing today and that is to observe the shrimp properly and not just look for saddles:stupid:

Cheers

Thanks Mick only thing is how could I have been so wrong???????? I was probably getting too big for my boots thinking I was getting good now I've been thrown back to a noob and have remember I don't really know that much after all LOL. Great learning curve just because there isn't a saddle doesn't make it a boy. I'm good with my Reds don't know how I missed it with the Yellows.!! But must say it's made my day !!!! Week even!!!

Cheers

      Mine is a DIY Chiller, as you know a peltier has a hot side and cold side, for the cold side to stay cold, the hot side must be kept cold and with a heatsink and fan to cool it down. My DIY chiller has two sides and two water block. blue aluminum block with tube leading to the outlet of the canister filter and back to the tank to chill the tank water. copper block is to cool the hot side of the peltier, with copper block to the radiator/fan and a water pump looping. The problem is the tube from the water pump came off, apparently the plastic from the pump started to melt and the tube came off and the looping side had no water, so the copper water block stayed hot all the time with heat transferred to the cold side of the peltier also heating the water. since the copper takes time to cool down, most of the heat and the room hot temp had already heat the tank water to about 45 C.

      Try testing it again and see what you get or to confirm that the previous were right, especially the higher Ph reading is all I can recommend! If there is some explanation for the difference hopefully someone will reply and let you know, but I expect there won't actually be a difference if you do it again? Simon

      No that's not normal. But I don't know which tube in your loop had come off. Can you show us?   Yes that would have helped a bit, and at least give KMS more time to have found the issue by turning off the chiller. As I understand, kms has a peltier style chiller, and a tube of the pump had come off, which meant that hot water from the hot side of the peltier flowed back into the tank. So if the chiller was on the same temp controller, it would have turned off the chiller at around 26degC. The tank might have got warmer in his room, but it would have been at a much slower rate, and certainly would not have reached 45degC.

      I'm using the API master test kit with the dropper bottles. I was just very confused at how much more akaline the water was coming out of the filter compared to the water out in the open. I can't imagine how this fluctuating change in pH is going to be beneficial for my crs.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      What type of test are you doing strip or drip? I use drip tests and always ignore the first attempt as no matter how well I clean and keep the test set it is often way out of line. Las time first test was Ph8, second test Ph6. Sometimes first attempt looks ok so I have no idea what is going on????? If you just tried once it may be worth testing again? Simon
