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 live in Hong Kong, there are a few shop in hong kong where you can catch your own shrimp, and this it one of them, this is also one of the cheapest shop. in Hong Kong you can buy almost any shrimps I friend told me about this shop, but this if the first time their.   I'm still deciding what plant to use , my be Fissidens fontanus, those Madagascar lace in the tank are just the leaves, I cut them from the old tank, they have overgrown the tank. but they have good biofilm and bacteria.

      More great photos, good to see the shadow panda, hope they are all doing well? You get such fantastic colour ones where you are! I did my reset tank today and removed lots of plants so it looks a little sparse. Anyway, I will check the ammonia/nitrite/nitrate tomorrow. TDS is 125 so spot on what I predicted using my spreadsheet. There were a lot of unhealthy plants! If the nitrates have dropped I may get a couple of new plants, and maybe even some shrimps next week??? Fingers crossed............. Simon

      Just a few more photo's to share. I just purchased a new canister filter Sun Sun HW-702B, I will need to get all the right size tubing before I can set it up.
