Thanks Matmatmat, these are my first since my Red Cherries so super exciting . The Rilis have another 4 girls to go the first only had 3 babies that I can see but they are masters at hiding. The chocolates have 1 more girl berried due later this week. Hopefully there is more than 1 baby though. Good luck with yours

They are all where they are staying and I only use a piece of airline and a syringe to suck out the left over foods. i'm getting better!!! Only tank getting changed is the 30" just ordered some soil from Dean and will set it up properly for my second crystal tank!! The boys are going into cube 2 and the 34 litre with the rilis for now. The michlings will get the better home!!!! I'm getting ready to move on:victorious: The babies are due in a fortnight but don't know who Dad is!

im thinking just halving with the sponge have been trying to source the filter sponge in a big enough sheet. Now I've ordered one that I was going to use as a mezzanine in the tank but as I'm changing that tank I could use that piece to split it. TThanks Ninja I had completely forgotten about that if the sponge I ordered is thick enough to stand up I will order more and can do a three way later:encouragement:

Not later Ineke, too much dust, have to do it at the same time or not at all. Baby TBs won't like dust.

TB's what TB's my michling probably mated with a CRS or CBS. The TB's are a way away yet!!! However I will have to find a local shop that sells filter sponge then. It needs to be 30 cm wide by 47 cm tall and so far haven't seen any. Tried Clark Rubber but everything they sell has been treated except for the air conditioner sponge but that wont last long in water.

Might have to go aquarium shop hopping on Tuesday or Wednesday and see what I can find as you say I should do it now and also look into filtration. JohnH is not having luck with a UG filter with shrimp soil so will have to update that as well. It would be easier with a sump wouldn't it!!!! Never mind that will come.:encouragement:

John thats a gorgeous coloured Mum. Mine are not going at all!! Squiggle is going to try and source some for me to add to mine I only have 2 girls and 3 boys so the boys will go into a male tank and I will try the new boy/boys with the girl. The couple of people I have asked about Yellows either didn't have any or they are still too small. Also nothing available locally either. Glad you are having success with yours. Yellows definitely have a presence:encouragement:

I might look on their sites and see. Otherwise will look in the local shops to get it at the same time I get the soil. The UG filter is going but I love them the water in that tank is crystal clear and it has always been a very healthy tank for fish and shrimp but it worries me if there is a power failure in case there is an ammonia spike.:encouragement:

      Yes, I can confirm that rock / pebble rock / gravel will cause the pH to raise over time.  My RODI water comes out as around 6.8 according to my pH meter.  And I did follow the manufacturer's suggestion to wait 5-6 minutes when measuring RODI water because of the low ion.  After adding it to the tank, the pH becomes 7.2 -> 7.4.  The highest that I've recorded in my journal is 7.6 but it never goes higher than that. Here is my shrimp's diet: On M-W-F, I feed Bacter AE + Shrimp Baby.  On T-TH-S, I feed Shrimp Dinner. And on Sunday, I feed Shrimp King Protein to increase shrimp production.  Water change is once a month because I have a ton of floating plants to keep Nitrate low. @sdlTBfanUK It's probably because of the low quality image so it makes some of the PRL babies' color turn black 😁 But there are no CBS at all in this shrimp tank
    • sdlTBfanUK
      That's very interesting. I have read a lot that PH fluctuates throughout the day naturally anyway but it is interesting that your Bee shrimp are fine at PH7.4 as indeed mine were also (although it is normally outside their ideal range)! The PH in my tank started at about 5.5 and then went up to 7.5 over about a year (rock caused that I suspect) but as it was a slow progression it didn't seem to have any affect on them at all! It looks like you have some crystal black babies in that tank as well? Simon
    • DNTM_Shrimp_Breeders
      @sdlTBfanUK pH is around 7.4 in the morning and 7.2 at night.  I know it's dangerous and easy to have pH swing when you don't have active substrate.  That's why I measure pH at least twice a day using the pH meter.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Great picture and love the shrimplets. Also pleased to hear it is all working so well! Do you now what the PH is of the new 20G tank? Simon
    • sdlTBfanUK
      That sounds great and pleased you have decided to go ahead. As you don't have any occupants in the tank at the moment it should be easy to get the tank parameters right by doing the planned water changes and add very little of the GH/KH+ until you have done the last large water change on Tuesday, that way it is easier to add the GH/KH+ to the level you want directly into the tank then - easier than finding it is over and having to get it down?  IF you were thinking of getting the shrimps from ProShrimp, they have quite a variety, bear in mind that there is postage cost only to a certain value (I think it is £35) so it may be better value to order a few more shrimps instead of paying the postage - if that makes sense??? If you are having them delivered Prohrimp or ebay you need to be home to sign/receive them obviously and IF using ebay MAKE SURE the seller is sending 'Express Delivery (Royal Mail Special Delivery (TM) 1:00 pm)'! Hopefully we will hear that everything has worked out well and all the hassle hasn't marred the experience.  Simon
