You two are too funny, although I do the same thing with my daughter & my nieces, my daughter lives in Sydney with her mum & every time I go down to see her & fill her up with sweet sweet sugar, she's a good girl so it doesn't cause too much trouble but she doesn't usually go to bed till very late. Now the nieces are a bit different cause my sister in law is pretty strict with giving them sugar, so I have to invent games with prizes, hahaha :victorious:

Definitely Bob I like to stir them up a bit and give my own kids trouble but all with love and no I wouldn't have it any other way.

Last year my son separated from his wife - they are back together now -Phew thank goodness- and I had the children here every other weekend and 3 night a week for 2-3 hours and it was bedlam but in a funny way I miss it all now they have a new home and are all back together.:encouragement:

Ours was a bit ugly at first but as there was no third party involved we got them to work through it and they have been back together for a good 6 months with all looking pretty good.

Thats it I'm 58 and young!!! the oldest is 13 a girl and just the best kid!!! I used to look after her when she was very young until she was about 4- I worked as a Registered nurse but part time looked after her until 1pm on the days I worked . Then I worked until 11pm and had her again the next morning at 7.30. On the days I didn't work I had her from 7.30 until 5.30pm and loved every minute of it. Couldn't do that now. After a couple of hours of having the little one here I am glad to give them back!!!!!

LOL I know where you are coming from, a number of years ago when I had Red Crystals and when they had there first batch of young, I use to spend a lot of time in front of the tank counting young ones.

You will go demented

If Rili eggs are usually green why would this shrimp have orange eggs? Maybe just red cherry babies? Dad is a Rili.

I've seen both colours in Rillis before, I'm not sure why it is, there was a thread on it a few month ago :encouragement:

      In case it helps I have looked up the figures of the 2 tanks with cherry shrimp in them and they are as follows, Main tank     PH7,, GH5, KH2, TDS 225 (mixed water) Betta tank  PH7.5, GH6, KH3, TDS 222 (tap water + mineraliser) They are fairly similar to each other but neither is really in the 'IDEAL' recommendation range of CHERRY shrimp ,so it confirms that cherry shrimp are more adaptable and can thrive even outside those 'IDEAL' parameters? I suppose neither are that far out but it just shows there is a bit less necessity to get everything 100%, though if you aim for perfect you will probably get better results all round? Simon

      Oh, if you are planning on keeping Cherry shrimp aim for 6-8GH as Simon said above.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Do you know what the water parameters are of this tank? Is the new male old enough to breed, assume it is as they only need to be 3 months I think but is that a possibility? Simon
    • sdlTBfanUK
      The usual GH range for Cherry shrimp is 6-8 and with the 1 part tap, 3 parts RO water mix you will be 50% there for G|H and just under 4 for KH! There are 2 products, one is GH+ and one is GH/KH+ so you need to get the right one for whichever route you plan to go, all RO water would be GH/KH+, mixed water would be GH+! IF you are planning the mixed route then that would be an easy adjustment you can do now by taking 25% water out and replacing with dechlorinated tap water, then adjust with the GH+ when you get it? This is the one I use, it is so simple as it is a liquid and even calculating is easy as each drop = +1gh (about 20ish TDS) / litre: https://www.pro-shrimp.co.uk/shrimp-king/803-shrimp-king-mineral-fluid-double-gh-4001615061413.html If you want to get this I have just done a dummy test on the website and you get delivery on it as long as it is one item, which is normal, but I thought you may need to pay as it is a bulky item to send? The soil should have lots of what the plants need I would have thought and the poop from the snails/shrimp must be some fertiliser? As JayC says you could leave the CO2 running for now as there are no shrimps, but I would probably turn it off and stop using fertiliser and just keep a close eye on the plants at this stage, after all you can start using them again IF the plants start looking unhealthy, but neither may be needed and it is better to know from the start and will make life easier long term. As I say I have never used either and my plants grow fantastic, in fact I wish they would grow slower, doh! Simon

      Ahhh ... the age old question of how to trigger your shrimp to breed. We will have to assume you have at least 1 male. What are you feeding them? Feed frozen bloodworms twice a week. The additional protein will give them more energy. Add more Indian Almond Leaves (aka Cattapa leaves) to the tank to promote more tannins and biofilm. Try raising temps to 23C or 74F. A 10% water change might help the females moult.
