Hi everyone

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!

welcome to SKF by the way ;)

      But the shrimp will be thinking otherwise. Look at all that yummy brown diatom!

      I am old school like that too. I prefer the classics patterns/colours. And I try very hard to not create further hybrids. I want my CRS to be CRS. My tigers to be tigers. etc...   @kms, all the more to support the site and sign up as a paid member.   @Cesar, what's the deal now with the new forum update? Has the photo size limits been changed, and if so what is the max for regular members?
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Thanks for that, it helps to know that it is probably going to be fine with time. I tried a different substrate this tie so that is all I can put it down too! I will revert to the JBL in future as this hasn't happened with that? I don't use any plant ferttilisers, and as above have never had to with the JBL substrate. The JBL is primarily a plant substrate and the shrimp king is primarily a shrimp one I guess, though they both seem to do the same buffering /softening etc? There will be a bit of a delay with breeding I expect as they don't mature until they are 6 months I believe? Again, thanks for that, it helps to know what someone else thinks and the tank has improved (hard to believe from the photos) going a bit greener and the stringy algae virtually now disappeared. Also a few new leaves on some plants etc. I just checked the water parameters and they are spot on! Simon

      The new update has reduce the photo size to 1.67MB for me, and all the photo taken with my phone is over. My pinto only cost less that GBP 4, as for the Red Wine, its 5 for GBP 10.20, any extra Red Wine will be GBP 2 if more than 5 is purchased.

      New tanks often go through a brown diatom phase and its just a waiting game before the diatoms naturally senesce.  Ride it out. The shrimp will certainly help clean it up and I'd wager that diatom rich biofilm is good nutrition.  You'll have shrimp breeding before you know it.  There is certainly a good complex variety of habitat for them to explore and exploit. Are you using any plant fertilisers yet?
