Recommended Posts

2OFUS

After months and months of breeding ,culling and adding new blood line ,finally a nice result

we have been watching this guy since birth lol (1 or 2 weeks old)

watching with anticipation and hope

We prayed to the shrimp gods that it would be a male :)

within the last 3 weeks it has had a massive growth spurt

anyways here's a pic or 2 of HIM :)

could it be the START of some real true fire reds

lets hope

cheers everyone

enjoy

Thats a better shot. He has potential for sure. If you need a few girls let me know. I'm just about to take down our Red Cherry Shrimp

tank as we're cutting back and our big 8 foot tank needs to go!

To be honest, it looks like it could be a young female to me. Let's hope I am wrong as that will be a stunning specimen if it is indeed a male.

Nice looking shrimp nonetheless.

Good luck and keep us updated.

Nothing like seeing a quality Cherry Shrimp. Keep us updated on the breeding program.

      Have you tested the tank parameters as that is the most important one? The tank looks good. Have you removed all the rock? If you have and the parameters (Ph) are going down with the water changes then you have probably sorted that part of the problem. If not I would try removing all the rock at this stage (you can always put it back later?) I left my rock a week in the test water before testing so you may be being too impatient, test again in another 4 days as it won't instantly rise it will take time to slowly increase the Parameters (Ph) I expect? Some occupants were probably weak/sick by the stage you started 'messing' with the parameters etc, and changing the parameters may have just been too much or too late for some, if they were already weak/sick?

      I did the tests tonight, and URGH! Results were useless... I left gravel and the rocks in water for 3 days, and showed the tiniest change (if at all...). I also tried the vinegar test with white vinegar, but also had no reaction. In the meantime I have lost the rocket killie that was originally sick, and another 1 or 2 😭. HELPPPPPPPPPPPPP! Should I try with hyrdochloric (or muriatic or even citric) acid just to be sure? And would it have to be pure? Upside-down strip comparison (srry) My interpretations: (note- the gravel was in much less water, water barely went over the gravel, but was in for less time (12 hours)) The rocks and gravel And my problematic tank in all its bad blurry phone photo glory:

      Yeah I'm planning on doing that with tts and blue dreams or blue/carbon rillis, cuz tts can do neo parameters (or so I've heard)

      I have ordered the above book I wanted, woohoo!!! Simon

      I won't hold my breath that it stops there either?????????????? I would probably combine the culls in one tank if you can get the parameters the top end of caridina and the 2 types don't cross breed so don't need to be separated. Simon
