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!!!

      Thanks for the advice guys, I really appreciate it! As for the details, the tank is my 110L community, and while none of my fish are especially expensive or special, but I don’t want to lose any or have to rescape. The reason I was hoping to avoid qt is bc I don’t have a spare tank or filter atm. I think I will qt I think. How long should I do it for, and do I need to cycle the tank very long?

      Hello folks, This is in regards to my TB tank that has had shrimp for about 2 months now.  The shrimp came in two batches from different vendors - one was two BKK and the other was a bunch of RWP and BB.  Everything was going well for about 2 months with the shrimps actively grazing around and suddenly I found one of the BKK dead and upright in a corner of the tank.  I usually do a check-up on the shrimp every day and the only time the shrimp are inert is one day before and after a molt.  In the past when I had shrimp die for various reasons they would be inert for a few days prior. The water parameters are the same as usual: Amm/NO2/NO3 = 0, ph = 6.0 or a little lower, GH 5, TDS 110 Using RO + SS GH+ and I did a 15% water change 2 days ago, dripping in the new water. I haven't fed any pellet shrimp food for a while because there are still lots of patches of algae in the tank, plus one IAL, plus they finished off a mulberry leaf 2 days ago. Nothing looks odd on the dead body of this shrimp (no real color loss) except the clear parts like antennae and tip of tail are a little orange.  (I think this is typical of shrimp that have died?  Or a molt shell once you remove it from the water and expose it to air.) The only odd things about this shrimp are that in the 2 months, it molted a few times but never grew much (or at all) over the original 1/2" size.  About a month ago, the white parts of it started turning blue.  The other BKK that came at the same time also either hasn't grown at all or maybe just a tiny bit, and only has little patches of blue.  The other batch of shrimp from a different breeder (RWP and BB) have grown significantly over this time. Anyway, the rest of the shrimp seem to still be doing well and actively grazing.  (Actually, two are acting quiet, but it is still within the pre-molt time frame) I hope it's not bacterial infection, but what can I do to prevent / prepare?  I have available: Dr Tim's Eco balance, Doxycycline (fish med), oregano oil, melafix, H2O2.

      I agree with JayC and have N|EVER quarantined personally, but there is also something a little more to consider. My setups are small and simple/basic and don't have many fish  - all about 30L max! If you have spent a lot of time and money setting up a beautiful tank, cycling it etc and then you introduce fish with some sort of disease or parasite you will need to TREAT the tank or may even have to re-setup the tank, if you put those sick fish in it so not only will you lose the fish you may have wasted a lot of time and money, and may have to completely start again from scratch, and never be 100% confident it/they won't recur. You may have to cycle etc again, buy new stuff depending on what the treatment was etc? I would say if you have a small bare bottom tank with a spare filter WHY not quarantine for the peace of mind? I am aware of course that I  am being hypocritical in saying this..............................so just a thought! Simon

      If they are the first inhabitants in a tank, then not needed. Beyond that, it's difficult to answer as it is a personal choice. we never value the quarantine process, until we REALLY need it, by the time we find out, it's too late. And we always wish we had quarantined. If it was me, my thought process goes like this ... i ask myself, do I already have inhabitants in the tank that are so rare and precious that I absolutely CANNOT loose due to disease? If the answer is Yes, than I quarantine any new tank inhabitants - fish or plants.
    • Crabclaw
      Hey all. So, I'm getting some cory cats in the near future, and I want to know if I need to quarantine them. I know a guy at my lfs really well, and I trust the store, so I might be able to get them to hold and quarantine them for me for a week. I'd prefer to just add them straight to the tank if it's possible though. If not, then I can sort a qt tank soon. Thanks in advance
