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:

      I'm thinking of ordering that "Salty Shrimp - Shrimp Mineral GH/KH+". My only concern is, does it also have all the needed minerals for my plants? Edit - If I was to use my tap water, what kind of GH should I be aiming for?
    • sdlTBfanUK
      WOW, that's hard water all right! Amazing how different it is to mine as probably only about 25 miles between us???? You were right to use RO water so at least you have a good starting point from here in! The PH may be the biggest issue as remineralising with a shrimp specific GH/KH+ will sort everything else with RO water. Cherry shrimps are pretty tough and adaptable so will tolerate PH below 7 but the nearer you can get to 7 the better, and a long time acclimating the shrimps using a dripper (there is a tube with regulator sold by ProShrimp for about £10 I think if you don't already have something) will be needed! The soil will take longer to loose its PH buffering ability with the RO though! There are a number of ways you can go from here: 1) RO water plus a GH/KH+ and try to get the PH up somehow although you will be fighting the Soil until that exhausts its buffering ability. 2) You could mix RO and (dechlorinated) tap water at 3:1 and then use a GH+. I do a 50/50 'similar' (half tap water, half brita filtered water) on my oldest tank. can't even remember why but I believe in 'don't try and fix it if it isn't broken' so have just carried on ever since. The mixed water would start at PH 6.2, TDS 70(ish), GH just over 4, KH just under 4 and then you can mineralise it (GH+ only) for the rest. This will exhaust the soil buffering quicker than 1 above and you will save a bit on RO water, use less (about half as much) mineraliser etc. You may think this is a bit too fussy a route though, and the soil will still buffer anyway, just not for as long as all RO water, and when it stops buffering you will have a PH closer to the ideal for the shrimps. Probably where you are now I would just get the snails for now until you have stopped adjusting the water or at least decided where next, probably not much longer before you get shrimps. I would also try turning off the CO2 and just see if it is really needed, if it looks like it is you can easily turn it back on then, but shrimps will do better without it and it MAY not be needed, same for fertilisers??? At least you are doing all this before getting the shrimps, very smart as most of us have learnt the hard/wrong way................ Simon

      Did some tests on my tap water. PH: 7.13 TDS: 274 KH: 15 GH: 17 Nothing out of the ordinary with the other test, nitrates were about 5ppm.

      If you are comfortable with selling to hobbyist, try posting them for sale! https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/forum/148-selling-forum-livestock/ You can make a bit of money to buy MORE TANKS! 🙂

      It looks like you will have the full set of tests when you have the GH and KH as you have the PH and TDS already! You will want the full set if you get into shrimps but once up and running you won't need to check all of them very often! If you only order something small or one item from ProShrimp often the postage is free and stuff always arrives quickly, all my orders have arrived next day. Last time I checked, my tap water was PH 7.5, TDS 167, GH 4-5, KH 2-3 so almost ideal for cherry shrimp (maybe a touch higher GH, which would also increase TDS, with a bit of GH+). Be interesting to see what yours is as you are relatively close, I grew up around Maidstone. Simon
