Paul S Intro

Recommended Posts

paul s

I am retired and live on the NSW north coast. My main interest is breeding Disuus. As you know these are high maintenance. I am looking at starting something that requires less maintenance and have decided to try shrimp. I came across this forum by accident. currently I have no shrimp at all. Does anyone have any for sale that they could ship. I would like to start with about 10 reasonable A-s grade CRS's. I will eventually go out of discus. On the forum I don't seem to be able to find "shrimp for sale". I am not very good with computering.

Hi Paul! from another retired bloke welcome aboard. enjoy your venture into shrimp. Some people might dissagree with me but start your shrimp collection off with cherry shrimp, many colours are available and they are a lot hardier than CRS/CBS and good to sharpen your shrimp keeping skills on. There are plenty of nice cherry shrimp on sale at the moment. You will find all the help you need, from our members on this forum. ENJOY!

Hey Paul, welcome to the forum.

I'd agree about starting with RCS, cheap, hardy, colourful and not so expensive when you make those mistakes whilst learning.

      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?
