Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

Heres a few pics of my rillis, camera flash washes out the red a bit though! And also one of my snails, its a zig-zag netrite (sp?).

Its an aussie native I got from Bob up in Cairns, awesome little snail! But they are escape artists, without lids on they go all over the shop, then end up dieing!

Nice shrimp mate. When I first saw Rillis I wasn't that impressed but they are starting to grow on me.

Cheers guys!

Dean I have had them for a while now, they have laid bulk eggs but none ever hatch, they need to be in brackish water or something I think to get to the next stage. I have found shells all over the place aswell, now there in a tank with a better rim so they cant get out!

      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...

      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.

      Thank you so much! I was trying to go through the standard settings menu, which is disabled. Fixed now!

      Interesting to get a different perspective from someone who has sold them in the past!  I think we are very lucky in that we are a small country and there are always about 20 people (hobbyists mainly) selling on ebay and when I used to buy that way I never had a single death but they would always arrive in less than 24 hours so barely had time to get too stressed. The 2 recent orders for my new setup bees was from an online specialist and with that I got 1 DOA of the 18 so that's 'acceptable' to me, I think some have died when in the tank subsequently but there is no way of me knowing whether that was the shrimps or the tank as the tank is being a real pain in the ar*e this time for some bizarre reason. Thanks for your views. Simon

      That's a handy tip for getting the leaves to sink otherwise they float for a couple of days! We must be quite lucky here as our leaves don't curl/roll up like the ones in your photos. I guess you can just put some water in a cup and let them soak until they sink as well if you don't like/want them floating in the tank until they sink! Simon
