Thought I would pop in & check out this new shrimp forum.

Loach gave me the heads up about this forum, and here I am!

Had a quick look around, and have seen a lot of familiar people from other forum, but looking forward to contributing to this shrimp only forum.

Hey Loach

Looks like a cool forum, from what I can see, not sure if I have a limited view of the forum (can only see 5 sections) or if its a super new forum and that's it for now?

But I'll be sure to pop in and check it out.

Oh, I lost a few of those guppies I got off you the days after they got into the tank, but the rest seem to be settling in now and doing well & growing nicely! :D

Yes you currently are limited as you are brand new. There is actually 20+ Subsections with more to come.

Had a feeling some of the endlers would die as they were very young, you can pick some more up if you dont mind another 45 mins of driving lol.

Cheers for the welcome Dean, how is that epic shrimp room coming along?

Loach, I'll see how the survivors turn out, I mean they are guppies after all, I'll have about 8 million just as soon as they are old enough to breed LOL

haha Bloody Matt, the only person on EVERY forum I visit :p

How are the T's going? Got any more new ones to show off? I have been pretty slack checking the invert forum lately :)

Hahaha I do get around :p My T's are excellent, I've started keeping them a new way, it's fantastic, I got an adult female sp. 3 for a steal last week, a sp. gold and a strenuus. I've started keeping other spiders now though, I have some funnelwebs (these guys are beautiful) and a heap of different trapdoors. My favourite addition is my Idiommata scintilins, these guys are as rare as rocking horse poo, they're almost like mini tarantulas. Mine has coloured up now from this pale colour to a velvet black.

And this is one of my hadrons

Whats this new way of keeping them, or is it a Matt trade secert? haha

They are some fat healthy looking spiders! The Hadron looks insane!

I only have the one Phlogius Stents at the moment, it recently had a nice little holiday in its burrow for around 2 months and has just emerged and it is a machine now, must of had a shed and its looking pretty tanky now!

I woud love to get some trappys in the future, but at the moment I am looking into (possibly) selling the CADE 2 ft aquarium and buying a 5-6 foot tank with sump, and having a large shrimp/tetra forest/driftwood aquarium setup.

Secret :p I have started using a clay loam substrate, the behavior is fantastic and they just act so much more naturally.

Thanks, the Hadrocyche had that funky abdomen in the picture when we caught her but with a nice feed she's a nice even shape. Stents are awesome, such a beautiful dark grey colour. How big is she now? One of mine molted out too 64mm or something.

That sounds awesome!!

That clay loam looks awesome Matt, where did you get it from? Is it something you can buy? Looks nice and natural, might have to give that a try.

I would say the Stents is around 90-100mm maybe? Hard to tell as its a real burrow lover & I don't get to see it stretched out to often.

Yeah, the video would be cool, I really like the look of the clay loam, much more natural than coco peat for sure, and the burrows look wicked.

Does it hold together well? No chance of burrow collapse?

I really dont know if it is male or female yet, it hides all sheds in its burrow, has never brought one out intact enough, and its so bloody fast to hide to get a good look at it.

      Had a quick look in my new invertebrates book and think they are Limnopilos naiganetri! If so it says temperature 24 to 28, Ph 7.5 - 8.5. They should be given driftwood and floating plants. It also says that although they carry eggs, raising the young has not been done in captivity (book produced 2015). This youtube video says she has had breeding though???? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPOIq4AsZCE I had thought about getting some in the past but as she says they are a bit like spiders so that put me off................ Hope everything else is going well still! Simon

      I'm really happy, finally a local shop in Hong Kong had some of these crabs, not to sure which variation of the spider crabs,, but they advertised them as miniature spider crabs (Limnopilos naiyanetri) , I was going to bring them back from Taiwan if I find any, but no need now, got them for about GBP 13.50 for 10 crabs, I will pick up another 30 crabs in the next few day.   The first photo is the crabs in the bag, I won't get home till tmr, the second photo is taken at the shop.

      You can do large water changes, I do it every 6 months to reset the minerals in the water, but you cannot just dump the new water back into the tank. It needs to be fed in slowly. I drip in the new water after adjusting it to match previous parameters.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Shrimp don't need much of a water change as they are low bioload! I have 30L and only do 2L per week so as with JayC cut back on the water change amount, even .5 litre would be ok! Large water changes tend to trigger moulting so they may be moulting too often? They may drop the eggs if they aren't fertilised and therefore unwanted! Have you seen any that look to be able yet?
