I was about to give up CRS/CBS as they kept dying, but somehow with 5.5 ph + co2 + ro + salty shrimp gh+ I haven't had any deaths for a while (touch wood)!

Not quite there about 60 to 70% so getting there. I had some sold snkw whites and even a couple of cbs. But hopefully this new generation might breed higher %. The ones that are rili are solid well defined colours.

Hopefully between the few of us breeding them we will be able to get them to a point that they are breeding true and nice solid defined colours. A lot of the rili available and being sold doesn't have a nice band its more of a patch. And it doesnt look that good personally anything that doesn't have a true band I think should be sold as a cull not a rili

It will be good to get some new blood lines into the colony and hopefully it will help to strengthen the genes

Due to tank space, my SW Rilli project is assigned to a small breeding box :-( ......... not breeding true, and ONLY throwing out SW and/or Rilli patterns...so FAR from a consistent, and/or breeding true ... haven't taken pics of them lately...

That's a very interesting development, I'll have to get some pics of my latest generation, out of about 40 shrimplets I think I got about 6-8 candidates for the continuation of the line. :encouragement:

      Thats interesting that you feel the same in USA with it being a much bigger country, I had thought that maybe it was a lot more difficult/risky transporting live shrimps because of that, and assumed it takes longer, or is ridiculously expensive? Thanks for that, most interesting. Simon

      When you say a ghost town I hope you don't mean the shrimp are dying off? When I set up my Betta tank I think I mentioned the soil was fighting with the water and I was getting PH of abut 6 for a few months and it has crept up more recently. The culls I dumped in there were fine at the low PH etc so I would be amazed if that caused too much of a problem! If you now don''t have any shrimps in there maybe I would put the rock back into the tank so that can speed up the exhausting of the buffering substrate and it would probably be safer to wait until the substrate isn't buffering before buying any more shrimps as a precaution for a while?  Oh I see JayC beat me to it........ hopefully what you mean then is the forum ghost town and not the tank? Simon

      Not the best photo of the fish. Have you checked your water parameters?
    • jayc
      Yeah, there was an issue with SKFA forums or the servers its on for many hours. That would have been why no one was around to respond.   That rock was buffering the pH. Now that it's gone, the water is returning to it's normal pH range. Well normal but for the substrate buffering it lower. You can try adding a small piece of the rock back in - that's one quick option.

      Hey guys, I noticed a couple of days ago that one of my female rocket killies has some sort of disease or injury on her side, and I have no experience with fish diseases at all, so can I get some help with working out what it is and what to do about it? One of my female endlers also has a little white line on the end of her tail, and I just noticed this as well. Please help me with identifying the problems and fixing them.
