Endlers!! I saw this one on another forum, it's a hybrid created by a member there, I think it's the most beautiful Endler I have ever seen :encouragement: I'm trying to get some off him but I don't think they are breeding true yet :dejection:

Looks like something you'd see at Kings Cross...

I'll admit, that fish is beautiful, but i prefer the wild ones.

Wow. Stunning little fish. I love the metallic blue on him.

On a related subject: My second endler girl dropped her fry over night, and there are several more babies darting around in the tank. I will see if I can rescue a few of them later....but I think I'm running out of space. :dejection:

First though...I NEED COFFEE!

Congratulations on the fry. When you kick start the CRS let me know what you did, mine still aren't breeding but at least I leave them alone now , no more rearranging tank decorations.:encouragement:

I rescued another 8 fry from the other female today + the 8 from yesterday makes 16 tiny endlers swimming in my shrimp tank. :encouragement:

Well, Ineke. If my CRS should start breeding I already can tell you what I'm doing. VERY LITTLE! :congratulatory: Just staring into the tanks a lot. So far that has helped with the yellow cherries and the endlers (not that endlers need much encouragement).

I am still to breed Crystals and those darn yellow cherries . I have had 1 female Michling breed and 1possibly 2 Tibees are berried. The rest of my cherries breed consistently , my Endlers breed but I can never catch them to save the babies their tank is too big. I no longer put my face right up against the glass, I don't rearrange the decorations anymore just weekly maintenance so now just have to wait till nature takes its course. I'm resigned to it now and just enjoy sitting in my room and watching but not too closely:)

Yeah she's getting black bars, should be rocking up any time soon :victorious:

Just for the record as I know someone asked the other day. They are pure & breed 100% true Endlers, the only thing with the black bars is you might get a red chilli or two as they are a line bred colour morph from the black bars, but still 100% Endler. I have never & will not ever own a guppy of any kind, never liked them & never will. I don't have anything against people who have them, just my taste in fish :encouragement:

& before anyone starts, a pure Endler is not a guppy, same family, different species. ;)

      Welcome fellow UK shrimp keeper! I would think it would be better to remove the shrimp into the quarantine tank and keep them there whilst you treat the fish in the main tank and once you finish treating the tank and fish do a complete water change (maybe 2 a week apart for safety) before returning the shrimps. That would seem the best option though obviously the shrimp would need to be in the separate tank for weeks. I'm not aware of any medications available for ICH that won't kill shriimp and/or snails. With neocaridina they probably will just about survive 30 degrees but you are pushing it close to the limit! I don't believe ich affects shrimps.

      Re-posting here from The Shrimp Spot forum as I need help. Help, 40 litre tank has a ich (ichthyophtyirius multifiliis) / white spot outbreak. We've been able to separate the few surviving neon tetra into an emergency quarantine tank, with appropriate medicine for the fish. We had done this as we had noticed the issue practically too late as we miss identified the white spots as cotton mouth (which the tetra also have). We luckily quarantined the fish from the tank as  the ich reached its second stage as most have matured and abandoned the fish. This has become an issue as even if the neon tetra do not survive the treatment, I cannot re-add them to the tank and I don't want to keep the tank's environment full of parasites. Thankfully ich seem to not be able to effect the shrimp but the medicine we have for them is toxic to the shrimp and the plants in the tank, hence the separating of the neon tetra. I was wondering if there was anything I can do to the tank while the shrimp are still in the tank, as removing them isn't a viable option. We've been trying to get the temp of the tank to 30C and leaving it at that temp for an hour, however the tank's heater is verry slow and doesn't seem to be going up past 27C. From what I've searched 30C should kill of the ich without irritating the bloody mary shrimp too much (too many websites vary their recommended temp, so I wouldn't keep it above 28C long if we were able to get it that high) If anyone knows if there are any ich treatments or methods of killing ich that are safe for invertebrates and potentially plants I would love if they could suggest one.

      For beginners and smaller tanks, I recommend glass aquariums because of their affordability and scratch resistance. For larger, more advanced aquariums, we recommend acrylic because it's lighter and easier to repair than glass.

      Hooray! I was hoping it was molt but he hasnt progressed at all in about a week. Thank you guys so much for your help again. Ill keep an eye out.

      It looks like the shrimp is about to moult.  I don't keep Ghost shrimp, so I'm not too familiar with how they look when going into a moult. But the white band along each joint is common in other shrimp when they start to moult.
