Hello, Name's Triggs

Triggs

Hey all what's cracking.

My name's Triggs, I'm a 25 year old from Melbourne.

Been into shrimps now for round 6-9 months give or take, It all started down a local dam when I was trying to catch a Yabby to put into my new tank at the time.

Didn't get any yabbies but what I did catch were these little clear prawn looking things. Looked kinda cool so I thought I'd put them in my tank and do some google work and find out what they're and if anyone kept them in Aquariums.

Got home and started researching and found them to be "Glass shrimp". The more research I did the more beautiful species, varieties, and variations I found of fresh water shrimp.

fast forward to now, And my love for shrimp has just grown more and more over time. I now have a bunch of Cherries I've been learning with in a 20L nano setup with java moss, water sprite and half a dozen anubias nana petites.

I've got a few other tanks I plan to set up in the near future for CBS and one for Glass shrimp however, I am currently looking at moving to a new place so have decided not to set them up until after the move.

I look forward to reading all your posts and threads, And thank you for setting up a forum dedicated to Australian shrimp keepers.

Thanks mate.

Like you said, better to have all the Aussie Shrimp Keepers in the same place than scattered around a few different sites.

This site has many members who will easily lure new keepers in, Yourself included. people like you and Nogi have been quite a great help in my learning of shrimps.

How do I get access? Is it a post thing/time thing or??

:-D Thanks again for all the welcome's everyone.

As soon as I manage to fix my camera i'll take some snaps to show you all my tanks. my 20L is all grown in and mature now and without self bias I think it's looking really nice quite proud of my efforts with it :P

Got a few projects I'm gonna start when I finally move to the new house, and after I sell off a few Guppies I'm gonna set up a Yabby tank which you may all be interested in seeing also.

Thanks again for the welcome :)

      It must have been an aluminium heatsink. The Indium in Liquid metal will eat through aluminium. Only copper or nickel plated heatsinks can be used with liquid metal. It says so on the packet, at least my pack of Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut does.

      I will try to add all the old tank's shrimps at the end of August to the new tank, had a problem with my chiller this morning, try to make it more efficient by adding a better heat sink grease, I added a liquid metal grease, apparently you can't add liquid metal, when heating up, the heat sink turning to dust, along with part of the cooler inlet and outlet. So far the shrimps are ok.

      I have had the new shrimps a week and have ordered some new ones(10) for delivery friday. There are probably at least 6 of the 8 alive (they may even all be alive still) but as the tank is so densely planted it is difficult to tell, but I saw 2 black and 2 red this morning, as yesterday, but I'm sure 1 red and  1 black weren't the same as the ones I saw yesterday so there are probably at least 6, if that makes any sense??? Anyway that will be it for now and I will just let the tank and shrimps do there thing once this batch are in there in a couple of days, and I can get back to the usual routine as was, before this unfortunate event wiped out the last lot. All parameters are good, including the nitrates now, but there are a lot of brown patches on the plants and moss balls still......... It all looks a bit drab and uninspiring and brown!!! I probably just need to be a bit more patient? I will do some maintenance tomorrow and a small 2L water change, then the new shrimps will go in on friday after acclimatising. The shrimps were totally uninterested in the spinach or shrimp lolly I put in at the weekend but I am assuming they have so much biofilm at this stage that that is keeping them busy and well fed and they are staying under cover until they get used to their new environment and this strange ugly monster that keeps peering in at them through the glass from time to time? I guess if some 100ft tall bloke kept peering through my window a few times a day I would be a bit nervous/reserved shall we say? I removed the spinach and the shrimp lolly and put the shrimp lolly in the betta tank and within minutes there were 10 shrimp on it so there was definitely nothing wrong with that shrimp lolly!

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