Taiwan Bee shrimplet survival rates

Recommended Posts

I dunno how man' date=' my tank is only 50cm cubed so 120L ish

It is 23c atm and in my living room with no windows opened.

Every week I lose 10l water, not sure how or why

And no lid[/quote']

No lids would be contributing greatly to the evaporation, that's still a lot though, it's just under 10%, your TDS would be fluctuating massively :dejection:

Tds is 200 so 10% will only be 220 so not that big of a deal I'd say

i had Tds of 900 in my cherry tank and 500 in a low grade crs tank and they did fine lol

If you've had success doing this then all good but I was just thinking that a change of that much every week would cause continual stress in the shrimp. I usually do a WC when the TDS raises 5ppm. :encouragement:

      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!
