Good for you and look forward to seeing them soon. I have had them in the past but they were a bit too shy, I may not have had sufficient numbers so rarely saw them but they were very pretty when I got to see them!
Unfortunately I placed my order for the mosquito and dwarf spotted rasboras a few days too late, and we went into lockdown over here so I am going to have to wait a while for those, would have been nice to have them here, but the reality is lockdown doesn't affect me personally at all being home 24/7 anyway.
What size will the tank be, I have ordered 6+6 and they are going into 35L tank, I may have too many? I allowed for a couple of deaths!
Just bought myself some Celestial Pearl Danios !
12 of them. 4 males and the rest females.
Unfortunately, no photos yet. They are super shy and have not coloured up yet.
Love these little fellas. They are so interesting. Same parameters as my shrimp tanks, but it's not going into any tank with shrimps, yet.
You can't really go wrong with RO water and remineralisers like salty shrimp as it is perfectly balanced to shrimps requirements on all the parameters including PH! Ph of RO water is usually low but the products will correct that as well. It is widely reported that they breed a lot better with the RO + minerals than in tap water, even if the tapwater parameters are good? The RO will remove anything that could be a problem like copper so you can stop looking for that sort of problem!
In such a large tank with only half a dozen shrimp I wouldn't feed the shrimp at this stage as there will be more than enough biofilm and the food that isn't eaten could cause more problems rotting etc (over feeding is a common problem)? Keep the food for when you have more shrimps or maybe a tiny bit as a sunday treat!
