Ineke, did you consider setting up a cull tank? It's an excuse for another tank after all.......

That was supposed to be my fish tank , a very deep and wide 200 litre tank with lots of hiding places but my Angels have grown very big and fat and I can't see any shrimp. Now I have a huge fish tank filled with well fed fish. I just can't put any more shrimp in there!

im trying to up size the tanks I have but not add to them:encouragement:

I know they weren't supposed to be in the tank but hubby loves angels so he won that one!!! But I suppose there are some culls that you shouldn't pass on because people will still use them to breed with their other shrimp and suddenly you have lots of poor quality shrimp as in the RCS.

We have angels too. There are too many nice fish and shrimp to keep and not enough tanks to keep them in! :dejection:

Angels just fill the middle of the tank so nicely and they are beautiful fish that interact with us. As to the shrimp like most new shrimp keepers I wanted everything I could get and now need to cut back and concentrate on less types but what to let go:dejection: First I will up size those small tanks and then decide which cherries I REALLY want- that will be a good start.

Then on to the Crystals if I can decide which to keep that in it self will help with space issues but I'm a shrimp hoarder and it will be hard. I know which shrimp cannot under any circumstances go but it's so hard with the others to decide who stays and no one can help me with that one!:D

      Fantastic photos and great that the RO water unit and pen arrived so promptly! It is always exciting when you get a batch of shrimplets - something I am looking forward too! Simon

      Springs here, so maybe the shrimp are more active for breeding? Hope you are collecting the waste RO water for watering your plants.

      Bought an RO DI unit from FSA. Free postage and it arrived in 2 days. Very happy. The TDS pen arrived today so I got busy. For reference, I’m about 2 hours North of Sydney. Tap water: TDS 155-157. PH 7-7.2 RO water: TDS 0-1 (Remineralised to 150). PH 6.6 CRS tank water: TDS 198. PH 7-7.2 I siphoned a vey small amount of tank water and am in the process of drip feeding the RO water into the tank. I’ll do this method during water changes until the tank water PH is at 6.6 I guess.  Also found new born shrimplets yesterday and two more berried females. I haven’t seen any berried in about a month so I’m happy.

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