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 :)

      Had a quick look in my new invertebrates book and think they are Limnopilos naiganetri! If so it says temperature 24 to 28, Ph 7.5 - 8.5. They should be given driftwood and floating plants. It also says that although they carry eggs, raising the young has not been done in captivity (book produced 2015). This youtube video says she has had breeding though???? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPOIq4AsZCE I had thought about getting some in the past but as she says they are a bit like spiders so that put me off................ Hope everything else is going well still! Simon

      I'm really happy, finally a local shop in Hong Kong had some of these crabs, not to sure which variation of the spider crabs,, but they advertised them as miniature spider crabs (Limnopilos naiyanetri) , I was going to bring them back from Taiwan if I find any, but no need now, got them for about GBP 13.50 for 10 crabs, I will pick up another 30 crabs in the next few day.   The first photo is the crabs in the bag, I won't get home till tmr, the second photo is taken at the shop.

      You can do large water changes, I do it every 6 months to reset the minerals in the water, but you cannot just dump the new water back into the tank. It needs to be fed in slowly. I drip in the new water after adjusting it to match previous parameters.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Shrimp don't need much of a water change as they are low bioload! I have 30L and only do 2L per week so as with JayC cut back on the water change amount, even .5 litre would be ok! Large water changes tend to trigger moulting so they may be moulting too often? They may drop the eggs if they aren't fertilised and therefore unwanted! Have you seen any that look to be able yet?
