Thanks guys and gals

At the moment I am breeding mostly L numbers 201,002,046 lots of peps and just got some new 270's to try. I have tonnes of red cherry shrimp wh o keep my Pleco tanks clean but am in the process of tracking down some blue cherries and also maybe some crs. I have also got some riffle shrimp which I am currently trying to breed which I think might have happened already cause there is a couple in there that are smaller then I remember the originals being. Can anyone tell me exactly what shrimp are available in Australia because it doesn't seem like there is much info out there confirming what is here?

Ooooooo! L046's are my favourite :encouragement: basically you can get cherries, red, blue, yellow, orange, chocolate, black & green, there's also Rillis, red, blue gene red & blue, all the grades of CRS & CBS & then you can get Taiwan bee, panda, King Kong, wine red, ruby red & Bluebolts, there's also tigers & tibees. That's pretty much in order of difficulty of keeping as well :victorious:

Hey mick,yeh Ben aka fishmosy got me onto it cause I told him I was keen on getting some more shrimp. I bought 10 yellow cherries about a year ago and within 2 weeks had one left. Turns out there was 2 dragonfly larvae in the tank,little #######. But I am keen to have another crack at them.

Why do all the cherry shrimp varieties get special names except the "YELLOW" kinda feel for them, from now on we should call them "Lemon Shrimp!"

There is a guy advertising some online and he says specifically that pumpkin shrimp are not a kind of cherry. Just wanted to make sure that he was full of it

      My parents have an aquarium, so I don't know if this will help, but still want to leave a suggestion. They also liked the idea of installing a light strip in it, so they started looking on amazon. I don't know what went wrong, but it broke on the fifth day of use. I think it was a cheap Chinese thing (although the website told me it was waterproof and durable). They asked me for help finding a better option, and I advised them of the smart LED multi-color light strips I used in my car. Being pretty skeptical, my dad still decided to try them. They have been working fine for a month now and don't even flicker. Mom says the fish are happy, lol. I hope my comment was helpful

      It's not looking good. Quarantine any shrimp showing Necrosis, as it can be infectious. Tell us what your water parameters are, and do a heavy water change after that. Increase surface agitation to get more oxygen into the water. A bit of H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) into the water to increase oxygen might also help the shrimps that have not yet contracted this.

      Sorry to see you have a problem. Try reading the section on 'muscular necrosis' in the below section. You will need to scroll down through it until you see the bold red heading of that description (it is quite a large article covering many problems etc, it is about the 5th item on the first page);   I don't have any personal experience of this but do ask any questions as someone may be able to help. A bit more general info may also  help, your setup, number of shrimps, how long you have had the shrimps, any water parameters you may have etc?

      Hello, I was wondering if anyone here had any first-hand information on these particular pictures. It describes exactly what a few of my shrimp have. The second picture is spot on and most accurate. Thanks

      #4 looks almost like a juvenile female to me, just looking at the abdomen in the top left image, but definitely looks more male in the other two images. The colour suggests it is an adult though, and it’s lacking a clear  so Simon is probably right in thinking it is male, that top left image is just confusing me a bit. If you’re going to get a female, to be sure, make sure it’s got an obvious yellow saddle. That’ll help you know it’s mature as well.
