Biozyme appears to be out of stock and I would like to know if there is any other product that may be equivalent to it? :encouragement:

We have a new German product said to be very similar to the Biogenchem ones: I have not tested it yet.

Very nice shrimpsider but can we get it here in Australia? EVen if we were to get it sent from OS customs may stop it.

The distributorship has not been part of your question, excuse me. As the product is very new (10 days or so) I guess there is no Australian distributor (yet).

Often if England sells it we can import from them but they don't have a distributor yet but as the product is so new someone may take it on a bit down the track. It's worth keeping an eye out for it:)

So ineke, did you decide on what to use instead of Biozyme?

I'm down to my last packet of Biozyme and there appears to be a world wide shortage.

No John I'm down to a couple of weeks worth too. The English shop I used said probably 2 months but that might be to stop people asking every 5 minutes. So if anyone can tell us what else to use it would be appreciated- it still hasn't made my yellows breed:D

I was thinking about ordering some powdered spirulian, barley grass, nettle, kale and bee pollen, mixing them all together as a home made alternative. I'm not sure if it will do the same job though.

Does the primo food settle around the tank or does it float? I was reading the description and it says it floats.

It floats then eventually sinks which is good coz it scatters all over and all the shrimplets can get to it.

Most of the powdered foods ive used seem to float. So i tend to mix them with a bit of tank water and squirt them with a syringe into the flow of the filter :encouragement:

BIOZYME is back so I have ordered some but I have most of the ingredients for the home made food now so will alternate these with the biozyme.

On fleabay they are in England couldn't find any in Australia . Getting two pkts delivered for $30 usually takes just over a week. Never had any import issues but if I could find it in Australia I would buy here

      But the shrimp will be thinking otherwise. Look at all that yummy brown diatom!

      I am old school like that too. I prefer the classics patterns/colours. And I try very hard to not create further hybrids. I want my CRS to be CRS. My tigers to be tigers. etc...   @kms, all the more to support the site and sign up as a paid member.   @Cesar, what's the deal now with the new forum update? Has the photo size limits been changed, and if so what is the max for regular members?

      Thanks for that, it helps to know that it is probably going to be fine with time. I tried a different substrate this tie so that is all I can put it down too! I will revert to the JBL in future as this hasn't happened with that? I don't use any plant ferttilisers, and as above have never had to with the JBL substrate. The JBL is primarily a plant substrate and the shrimp king is primarily a shrimp one I guess, though they both seem to do the same buffering /softening etc? There will be a bit of a delay with breeding I expect as they don't mature until they are 6 months I believe? Again, thanks for that, it helps to know what someone else thinks and the tank has improved (hard to believe from the photos) going a bit greener and the stringy algae virtually now disappeared. Also a few new leaves on some plants etc. I just checked the water parameters and they are spot on! Simon

      The new update has reduce the photo size to 1.67MB for me, and all the photo taken with my phone is over. My pinto only cost less that GBP 4, as for the Red Wine, its 5 for GBP 10.20, any extra Red Wine will be GBP 2 if more than 5 is purchased.

      New tanks often go through a brown diatom phase and its just a waiting game before the diatoms naturally senesce.  Ride it out. The shrimp will certainly help clean it up and I'd wager that diatom rich biofilm is good nutrition.  You'll have shrimp breeding before you know it.  There is certainly a good complex variety of habitat for them to explore and exploit. Are you using any plant fertilisers yet?
