Theres nothing like sharing crabs with friends is there, thats when you know their a true friend LOL. The more you share the more you will have to give to the ladies :)

Baccus

I don't know about another bloke helping with 4 women, but he will give solid silent support LOL.

The dopey other bloke just got worried that we where spot lighting for shrimp....shhesh can't take him any where. Although its nor such a bad idea shrimps eyes do give eye shine in torch light.

And the crabs, I will carry them home with pride, I have never taken crabs home before.

      Yes, just right.   That's good news. It looks like there is some bacteria in the tank and it's processing the ammonia. Nitrates are building up however, but that can be reduced with water changes. Continue using the Fluval Cycle at every water change, ie. weekly. Just keep working on reducing the pH slowly.

      That temperature is perfect! The wood and any Indian Almond leaves will be a slow (and that is what you want) PH reduction. It looks to be going well, the main thing is to change things very slowly if everything is otherwise ok! If the shrimp are active and investigating that is a good sign! Simon

      Update: My water temperature was read wrong.... it was not 82 haha but instead it is 72.. (which is better right) My PH is still 7.6 after adding some mopani driftwood that i boiled for 3 hours and soaked for 1 hour. MY ammonia appears to be closer to 0ppm,if not between 0 and .25pm. (definitely not .25 anymore) My nitrites are still at 0. My nitrates have risen to what I think might be 30-40ppm from 20ppm. The shrimp seem to acting normal! eating and loving the driftwood! I added the fluval cycle yesterday as well. Thank you all for the help so far and I am open to hearing more advice 🙂

      wait wait Do NOT add driftwood unless you know it is a kind that is shrimp safe and also free of pesticides and chemicals Second, boil the driftwood at least 1/2 hours in distilled water so that it doesn't suddenly release a whole bunch of things in the water. Third, do not attempt to use this to push around the pH value, especially if you don't know what is the KH value is.  You don't want sudden pH changes.  Use something a bit more gentle like Indian Almond leaf, which you can immediately take out if you overdo it. Fourth get the API liquid test kits for Ammonia, Nitrite, and Nitrate and test every day. Fifth, get something like Seachem Prime that can protect against ammonia.  If you ever see ammonia or nitrite, then dose this approx 1 drip per gallon per day.  If you don't see any, then still dose something like 1 drip per 2 gallons per day anyway, until you are sure that the cycle is established.  You can look up the instructions and dosing guidelines for Seachem's fish-in-tank cycle guide.  (Except here you will be using Fluval cycle instead of Seachem Stability)

      I'm probably the wrong one to answer this???? Do as JayC stated and only use half dose every 2 days of the fluval cycle. I believe you only need to do a water change if the ammonia goes too high (so remove some ammonia)! I imagine that that product does add ammonia as that is the start of the cycle? The other reason for doing a water change is if the PH drops too low (below 6.5ish) but I doubt this is likely with your high PH reading, at this point anyway! Soil substrates usually lower/buffer the PH but I assume you are using sand or gravel, which is usual with cherry shrimp?  The Indian almond leaves and driftwood should very slowly reduce the PH, though the driftwood isn't yet in the tank of coarse! Hopefully the tank will have already cycled by the time the driftwood is ready to  go in the tank anyway. Simon
