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!!!!!

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:

      It is definitely more of a balancing act when trying to keep everything happy in a tank with Shrimps and plants, but don't be put off I think you will be fine. When putting the shrimps in the tank you should take hours of dripping to acclimate them and you may lose a few with the low Ph but I am sure it will work out in the end as cherry shrimps are fairly tough. If you use all RO water and GH/KH+ then the PH will always be lower even after the buffering of the soil stops, but this is the easiest route to go! If you go the mixed water 1:3 with GH+ the same applies but the PH will be slightly higher and will be cheaper (less GH+ and RO water needed), so overall this is the way I would go, and it isn't all that complicated once you get it up and running! As with JayC I doubt you really will need any ferts but if you must then use a lot less than the packaging recommends!  The best thing to do is just decide which route you prefer to go from the start as it gets so much more difficult to change it later? I don't have any issue with keeping shrimps/fish/plants happy and I don't use CO2 or any fertilizers so it is definitely possible and not that difficult if I can do it? I think that a lot of the plant fertilizers etc are really intended for plant aquascapes without any inhabitants but with fish and/or shrimps there will be natural fertilizer and the soil should have enough to start everything off? If you still aren't too sure I would just try running the tank without the CO2 or ferts (with the exception of as JayC recommends above) for a few weeks and just see how the plants get on, as you can start using either/both again at any point if they don't look like they are ok, but I expect it will work out fine. This will also give you time to mull it over at leisure? Simon

      You only need Flourish Potassium, as needed, in an aquarium. Potassium will be the limiting factor to growth in most aquariums. But with shrimp in the tank, I would dose it at 1/4 strength once every 2 weeks or more. Seachem Flourish for micro nutrients at half recommended dose every other 2 weeks in between the Potassium.   But !!  I don't believe you will need too much ferts in your tank. The type of plants and the amount of plants do not warrant much ferts at all. The waste from the fish and shrimps will be enough ferts, and if they are getting enough light a day, the plants will be fine without any additional ferts, except maybe a little potassium once every few weeks.

      O.k rethink. If I use that Salty Shrimp GH/KH stuff. Can you recommend any good fertilisers I could use for the plants? I'm not dosing anything at the moment.
    • DEL 707
      Not going to lie, this is giving me a headache. Just want a nice planted tank with fish and shrimp. 🤨 At the moment it looks like it have to either pick 1 or the other. Would this be a solution. Use Seachems Equilibrium and KH products to bring my GH and KH up to 4, then use that Shrimp King Mineral Fluid Double, to bring the GH up to 6. That would make sure that there are at least some minerals for the shrimp.

      Hi there buddies wanted to show you pics of pipefishes I caught in the wild, Microphis brachyurus and Microphis cruentus. Unfortunately, I now exceed the limit quota of attachments on my profile. Will try to fix that issue ...
