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!

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.

      Very wise as once they start breeding your population may sky rocket anyway, as they have with the CBS! I'm sure you should get some really nice surprises/colours when they start cross breeding too! Simon

      I will stick with the present shrimps, give it another month or so before I add some more shrimps.

      More fantastic pictures love the blue shadow panda and the 2 red pinto galaxy. Great to hear all is going so well! If you have a lot of CBS then they will breed when they are old enough so losing the 'mother' isn't too bad at this stage and they only love max 2 years anyway. Glad you still have 2 blue bolts as well - those will probably be my next purchase when they are in stock? The putting spinach in my tank has brought a few of my shrimps out but bizarrely they aren't touching the actual spinach? Seen 2 black and 3 red (of the 8 total I bought) so far today? Simon

      update my new tank is becoming stable, the shrinps are growing, I have seen many of the shrimps shread it's shell.   My old tank is infested with black CRS, but the mother had just died yesterday, I still have two blue bolts and a few CRS.
