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!!!!!

Well found 2 more babies today thank goodness I wasn't hallucinating unless I'm seeing double err triple!!! Also a while ago i found a very pale blue/lilac female in my red cherry tank so put her in with the rilis and she is berried today so will be waiting for her babies with great excitement- she is the first variant I have found in my Red Cherry tank -it will be a long month.:encouragement:

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:

      You're fine as you are, you want some KH! You can slowly reduce the TDS by topping up the tank with just RO water, it is ok at 252 but that is pretty much regarded as the upper level (150-250). From here in you don't need to do ALL the tests every time just use the TDS when preparing new water and I would aim for about 200-220 when mixing new water as that way you have quite a margin for inaccuracy as it will probably be difficult to get it spot on anyway with the powder GH/KH+. As you are using the salty shrimp mineraliser that means the GH will tie in with the TDS anyway. Probably do fortnightly set of tests for the first few months just so you can be sure all is well? I'll keep my fingers crossed it is all plain sailing now! Enjoy watching your new shrimps and snails. Simon  Edit - suddenly realised what I wrote! YOU SHOULD ALWAYS top up with RO water as evaporated water leaves everything in the tank water anyway. To get the TDS down you can mix the new water to TDS 200-220 when you do a water change, or even use just RO water for the water change if it is very small and dripped into the tank!

      Thanks. I've got them drip acclimatising at the moment, 5 shrimp and 2 nerrite snails. CO2 is turned off, will keep it off for a few days. My TDS is 253. With my soil, is it worth switching to Salty Shrimp GH+, or should I keep using the GH/KH+
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Fantastic news!!! They may slow down/stop breeding in winter remember but that's not something you need to worry about at the moment. I think most people leave at least the back (I leave back and both sides) alone, to grow algae/biofilm, the babies especially like that? If you don't like seeing the growth on the back glass then you can get some black background to put behind the tank, this will also show the shrimps off better, especially babies if they are on the back???? Also as the sponge is black and the filter is also black etc they won't be so visually obvious????  Always great to hear a success story so thanks for the update! Simon
    • sdlTBfanUK
      GO FOR IT! As I wrote earlier mine are kept in KH2 and KH3 and do fine so I would think yours will be as well but just stretch out the acclimating as a precaution. My KH3 I use KH elixir which I got from ProShrimp but that was for the betta - incidentally using the elixir also increases the TDS, but I would go get those shrimps and see how you go first before trying to complicate things as I think they should be fine, so see how they go and expect maybe 1 or 2 may die in the first couple of weeks (expect that and if they don't you will be happier). As you say the soil is probably softening the water and that will stop eventually, so over time it will probably increase slowly, but my shrimp have lived for 5 years in KH2! Do you know what the TDS figure is now? Simon

      A small update. I have more shrimplets than I can count and numerous berried females too, which is great. I can see shrimplets of all sizes too, which indicates they're surviving nicely. Super stoked to see the population finally taking off. I imagine switching to RO water has been partly, if not totally, responsible for the uprated breeding and shrimplet survival. The pH has slowly dropped to around 6.8 since I started using it instead of tapwater. I'd also give some of the credit to the warmer weather with the change of season, but I've been here before and never had more than a couple berried at any time, and never had large numbers of babies. I realised I hadn't put a tank photo up recently. I cleaned it out months ago to make it easier to see the shrimp. This tank is really ugly, but its practical and the shrimp like it. I even leave the algae build-up on the rear glass in case they get something out of it haha.
