Hi everyone

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm a relative beginner to shrimp/fish keeping, but I'm loving it. I currently keep CRS, red cherries, yellow cherries (separate to the reds of course), DAS, Darwin Red Nose, blue and white zebra (sold under that name, not sure what they really are).

I also have a couple of tanks of various fish.

My setups are not fancy at all (yet), but I am learning all the time :)

My other main hobby is photographing all those fish and shrimp! Hope to contribute and learn from this forum.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys :)

Hey nogi, remember how I was so impressed by your 4ft main tank? I've finally been given the approval to get a 4x2x2, but mine will be for fish, not shrimp :P I'll still have a tank for shrimp and another for my Betta.

Where's the forum for photos?? :)

Thanks Nogi! I'll install it later. I was more thinking about location of flash (soft box or not) to the angle of the camera, etc.

Wow I'm blown away by your zebra pics, would love to know how long you have had them, your conditions for keeping and if you have had breeding success. I think this is my next shrimp to delve into over the newer kk etc, very keen to see the local option expanded into the hobby!

and

welcome to SKF by the way ;)

      Have you actually seen one of these? I got one and it had great pictures but it isn't really about anything in particular and I binned the one I got as apart from the great photos there was nothing really of interest just bits and pieces about 'breeders n keepers', so I couldn't complain as that was what it was called. I wanted a book about all aspects of keeping shrimps and this wasn't that. I believe one f the experts has written a book and I wish I bought it when I saw it on my suppliers website as it has also gone now. I recommend seeing one before buying though as it MAY not be what you want/think it is???? Simon

      Gotcha. I’ve really been eyeing some ,”Fire Reds,” or some,”Blue Dreams,” from LRBretz, those are out of this world.

      Does anyone know if these are in print anywhere? They don't seem to print nearly enough copies to meet demand, issue after issue sells out and is gone forever.
    • Blue Ridge
      I wonder why that would be? I'd think an oak is an oak wherever it's growing. Perhaps a result of me leaving them in the sun? It's not a big issue, once they get soaked they become pliable and soft it's just a head scratcher...
    • Blue Ridge
      AFAIK, only crystal reds. FWIW, Rob at Flip imports the vast majority of his stock. Price of success, I suppose. He can't breed them fast enough to meet demand. He's very open about this and a great guy to deal with. But I wouldn't buy Caridina as imports when they can be had (much) cheaper home bred from a hobbyist. Mischlings might be a good way to go, you'll usually get a variety of black and red crystals F1, depending on what they were bred with. And they tend to be a little hardier like tigers, though still more fragile than most Neos.
