I'm 15 k from the GPO in Adelaide so you would think it wasn't a problem, When I queried it a while ago they said 2 things if it's late then next time you can have free delivery or pay more to guarantee next day delivery - funny I thought that's what I had paid more LOl. Never mind it will get here!

Lol, I know what you mean, pay extra for next day delivery but pay more extra for guaranteed next day delivery, doesn't make sense :encouragement:

I apparently bought the last pack of Platinum Post satchets in WA yesterday ? Aust Posts has changed the Express/Plat Post system effective immediately, although they'll still honour the 24 hrs guarantee for existing Plat Post sachets. The reason I was given was that they were having issues with 24 hour guaranteed delivery, so rather then fix and resolve the issue, they've made it easier for themselves ! So no more Plat Post once the satchets run out. Pttthhhh !

Send the shrimp via the US, they seem to send things 10x faster.

Aus post need some competition besides courier companies. They're so slow. :(

      Not going to lie, this is giving me a headache. Just want a nice planted tank with fish and shrimp. 🤨 At the moment it looks like it have to either pick 1 or the other. Would this be a solution. Use Seachems Equilibrium and KH products to bring my GH and KH up to 4, then use that Shrimp King Mineral Fluid Double, to bring the GH up to 6. That would make sure that there are at least some minerals for the shrimp.

      Hi there buddies wanted to show you pics of pipefishes I caught in the wild, Microphis brachyurus and Microphis cruentus. Unfortunately, I now exceed the limit quota of attachments on my profile. Will try to fix that issue ...
    • Crabclaw
      My vote is for Endlers. Mine are the most fascinating (from a fish lovers point of view here) and cute fish in my tank, but I reckon they would be perfect for you, as mine are constantly picking on stuff! They’re the only fish who eat my dreaded snail eggs (on the glass and other surfaces) which I love! Plus you don’t need heaps. Males are small if you just want them for this. And you will be able to get them anywhere.   I have a school of 20 embers in my tank, but I rarely see them hunting in any manner, much less on surfaces.

      In case it helps I have looked up the figures of the 2 tanks with cherry shrimp in them and they are as follows, Main tank     PH7,, GH5, KH2, TDS 225 (mixed water) Betta tank  PH7.5, GH6, KH3, TDS 222 (tap water + mineraliser) They are fairly similar to each other but neither is really in the 'IDEAL' recommendation range of CHERRY shrimp ,so it confirms that cherry shrimp are more adaptable and can thrive even outside those 'IDEAL' parameters? I suppose neither are that far out but it just shows there is a bit less necessity to get everything 100%, though if you aim for perfect you will probably get better results all round? Simon

      Oh, if you are planning on keeping Cherry shrimp aim for 6-8GH as Simon said above.
