Recently, I decided to X a Carbon Rilli with a Yellow Cherry to theoritically achieve a blue/yellow shrimp. This the formula ...

The carbon rilli appears more blue in reality. Expecting a bunch of Yellow's or even Wild Type for the F1....BUT worth a shot eh !

We have to pick on your faultless career some times BB. I still think you will get there, you have the grasp on genetics needed = first battle won

      Update.   Manual removal has stopped, seems to be under control. Light has been lowered on day cycle to try to combat over lighting. Baby shrimp are showing up more frequently now as I gander around the tank . I’ve received the lid kit and will be assembling that and doing a water change tonight.   In other news, I’ve ordered some Black and red crystals to bolster population of reds, and add some blacks. The fish are for a friend’s tank( we like to combine orders to save a few dollars). He offered me half of the emeralds, but I think I’ll steer clear anyway, I’m sure they would eat baby shrimps, even as small as they are. Maybe I’ll take him up on the offer once my colony is booming, as he’s putting them in a designated breeding tank.

      Hope it all works as you want it too so you can get everything settled with the tanks at last so that you can build your collection! Simon

      I've just received my Hailea HC130A today, I can  confirm the HC130a does have a PC type ball bearing fan shown below. I have also put a external temperature probe, only took less than a minute to do, it is connected with a SM2.54 connector which is readly available, the probe house the male side of the socket. there are two notch at the front bottom of the chiller that you can lead the probe cable out of the chiller, so no drilling of any sort needs to be done.   My unit was a little scratched at one side and near the panel, the scratch was expected for product coming from china, the radiator fins at some part was a little pushed in and bent, but I put then right so all is good. The chiller came with 4 hose connector, but are all same size, I think it should come with two size, but i'm alright with that.   I haven't full tested it yet as the chiller was sent to my work place, apparently the water pump I had at work was too weak to move the water, so I have to test it at home, the probe is working fine.   Thanks JayC and sdlTBfanUK  for all your advice.

      This is where the TDS meter will come in handy and make things easy. (And part of the reason we recommend shrimp keepers get one). With a TDS meter you just add enough of the dissolved mix into the tank (or water change) until it reaches 150TDS as measured with the TDS meter. Without a TDS meter, just follow the instructions and dosage below: Instructions of use Mix with water outside of the aquarium. Shrimp Mineral dissolves almost completely within seconds, and the water is ready for use at once. Please make sure that any undissolved particles go into your tank, too. Close container after every use at once as this mineral salt absorbs moisture. Dosage Use Shrimp Mineral to re-mineralise RO water, rainwater, fully desalinated water etc. to reach a total hardness of about 6 GH and/or a conductance of about 300 +/- 50 uS (Microsiemens). For this purpose, an evenly full measuring spoon (about 2 g) to 10 litres (2.2Gallon) of water is sufficient. While not as accurate without a TDS meter, it will get close. You can always adjust the TDS reading after you get your TDS meter.   Weekly water changes of 10% as per normal, with the new water adjusted to 150 TDS with SS GH/KH+. If it is particularly hot and you notice the water level of the tank dropping, you top off with pure RO or Distilled water, no remineralising needed. In summary, Water Change = Add SS GH/KH+. Top Off = straight distilled.

      I have a 20 gallon long, I'm trying to figure out how many scoops of gh/kh+ to use and how to test it.  I'm buying distilled water since my tap sucks. What is the dosage for the powder? And do I just measure to get something close to what cherry shrimp parameters are suggested? How do I do water changes with the minerals? Or is just top offs what I should do? Just straight distilled or add some salty?
