Hello From Sydney!

Recommended Posts

Sarah

Hey guys,

My name is Sarah and I'm located in Sydney. I'm new to shrimp and just recently set up a 2ft tank for Red Cherry Shrimp.

Besides shrimp, I also keep fish: mostly Bettas (Siamese Fighters). I have 2x 4wk old spawn, and a pair I bred that just turned 3months with various adults. I have a couple planted tanks, nothing fancy but I do quite like them.

Also keep inverts (have 2 Tarantulas, scorpions and a pede).

Looking forward to being a member of this forum!

Thanks,

Sarah. :)

My Strenuus. Taken BEFORE a substrate change. Is now eating and has plumped up a bit.

Elongatus:

Snugglebum. Tragically lost her this week, a tank lid broke and she (and other inverts) fell into the tank, and drowned after her container filled with water during the night.

Thanks. :)

Feederbarb, I have only recently gotten Cherries and haven't noticed any dead ones... unless it was death by disease, I would probably give it to my axolotl.

      Oh wow, as you say they certainly are tiny! You must be so happy? How is it going with the other (Caridina) tank? Simon
    • Steensj2004
      I’m sorry to hear about the trouble, seeing our tanks have issues is always hard. I hope your back on the upswing now! unfortunately, I don’t have a good camera for shots this small, but I did my best. I was able to count 23 last night during lights off with a small penlight. I’m sure they are many, many more!

      Don't I feel a fool letting it happen again. I have ut one of those strip thermometers on the tank now (they are actually quite accurate by the looks) and it is a tank close to where I usually am and the new heater has the flashing temperature on the heater so it is very unlikely to happen again. The shrimps seem fine (bloody mary) and yesterday I saw all the Ember tetras and 1 neon tetra so I only lost a few neon tetras by the looks of it, so it isn't as bad as I first thought? I shall look into the temperature controllers now though! They don't seem to sell them from my usual seller but I may ask him to consider getting some, he sells everything else! Simon

      Pics!! Please?   Oh no, not again! when are you going to invest in that temperature controller thing I recommended? It's piece of mind if not anything else.  
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Fantastic news and you must be so happy, long may it last and you must have got it all sorted! I had another heater disaster 2 days ago, stuck on and temperature got to about 32, it was my oldest tank and the bloody mary shrimps seem to be none the worse but I lost almost all the tetras, and those few that survived aren't acting usual, d'oh! New heater in place and it has a flashing light that shows the temperature so that shouldn't happen again in the future, hopefully/theory anyway! Simon
