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.

      I have 10 chilli rasbora and a killi in a 30(ish) litre tank and they are doing fine and seems about right in size! I hope to get some shrimp for trial at some stage to also go in there but thats for a later date, when things get back to a bit more normal. Simon

      A 600x300x180 tank is perfect for CPD or chilli rasboras.

      So an update...  I called the store that said they had an ADA 90f on their website and they dont have one.  ADA dont even make that tank anymore.   So guys help me out.. do you consider that the 60F 600x300x180 is too small for a small school of celestial pearl danios or cilli rasboras and shrimp?  30 litres This would certainly help me out with the overall build budget!  I have also found a fireAqua tank being imported into Western Australia that is 900x300x240. I am still in the budget and planning stage and would really appreciate your input team. Thanks for your help sub

      You should be able to tell the difference when they colour up a bit as those 2 type look quite different/distinctive patternwise! If you can't tell then put them in one tank and let them grow a bit bigger or just colour up a bit more then you will be able to tell and move one set to a different/seperate tank! Probably if they are small then there isn't much likelyhood of them crossbreeding as they are too young? Welcome to the forum! Simon
