Although the increase only targets prepaid things so it is cheaper (most of the time) to box things up yourself and then get a sticker on it at the post office. The price then is calculated according to distance and weight. So if its sydney to sydney it might work out cheaper but if its sydney to perth then its pretty dear.

Hi Garnelchen, crazy huh. still no sign of your water samples ! Suspect it leaked or their care factor was zero ! If you're still having troubles, maybe try a local member or send to me again ? Second time lucky ?

Yeah he's blue and red! I don't have a better pic yet i'm afraid... he only ever seems to hang out on the sponge filter at the back of the tank!

Never mind BB. I think I have sorted things out for the time being. I will buy more test kits as I go along. (Really have to keep an eye on my spending for Shrimp stuff :o) And I might ask my old boss if he can run a sample for me in the lab.

Well Torface, you just have to try harder please! ;)

I think you'll find Pigeon is more reliable and has a higher chance of being delivered! I was advised by my local post office that prices went up came

the 1st April, thanks for the notification guys.

Very nice shrimp I have a girl that has saddled that looks like your spidershrimp. I've tried to get photos but only have the iphone will see if I can find one of her. Are you enjoying all of your new shrimp. I've spent an hour pulling my sump apart in my little cube and trying to catch some shrimp that went exploring-it didn't take an hour to pull the sump apart it took that long to catch the little beggars!

Yes try and get photos please :) Those are iphone photos, they don't take bad photos really.

I'm loving the new shrimp, but the blues have lots of places to hide so i don't see them often :(

I hope none of my shrimp take a trip to the sump cos i'd never see them again if they did!!

      +1 for the sponge.

      Definitely go the sponge.

      I'm no expert, but 1 does seem a fair bit "chunkier" then the rest. Got a bit of a new problem though. I saw 1 of the shrimp cleaning away near the filter intake grill last night. He did look like he might have just been small enough to slip through. I was thinking of buying some filter sponge to jam behind the grill to stop them getting in.

      That’s a cool idea! I would be interested in testing that out as well at some point. Let us know if you try it!
    • sdlTBfanUK
      We don't get the heat you do their but I am planning to get a cooler, a fan when we get to spring if the shrimps do well. I don't know whether that type of cooler is available where you are and it may not be powerful enough anyway. I will just put it on the tank when needed, but thats unlikely to be often here, and so  easy to set up. Obviously this isn't any good where you are based but I wanted to show an alternative to the chiller in case that suits? https://www.pro-shrimp.co.uk/aquarium-coolers/3100-jbl-cooler-200-aquarium-cooler-4014162604293.html?search_query=cooler&results=8  Believe me when I say you don't want to go through the heartache of cooked shrimps, I am still gutted 6 months later and the new lot will never be the same???? CO2 and shrimps is very risky and so I wouldn't use it, especially if it isn't needed and everything is ok? Simon
