So I saw these stunners on another site & thought I might share them with you guys. Funny thing was that they called them Sakura, didn't even classify them as fire, just makes me realise that we have a long way to go! They are from a guy in Denmark :victorious:

I think in Germany they call higher quality fires Sakura, so they seem to classify them the other way round. :confused:

I don't really understand it. We should ask Imke! :)

That's a beautiful shrimp!

Yeah it would be a good idea but from what I've read, the joints on the legs are still clear so it wouldn't be classified as a Painted Fire :encouragement:

This is another one from the same guy, much more colour in the legs, simply stunning! :victorious:

Noticed they're all females. Most of us keep our cherry's in CRS/TB WP, so not 100% ideal. With higher PH, GH, KH & even TDS, I reckon some of our members here would have this type of quality cherry ?

I have a CBS with black legs, and as soon as my WP is not 100%, his legs become opaque.......but once the WP is right again, his legs is a solid black. Similar to my CRS, its shell thickness looks great with a higher Ca=GH.....

Nice shrimps Squig

I was looking at some today at a mates place that came in from his ponds and some were 25mm and bigger with good colour, I will have a look at them tomorrow and see how good they are?

      Thank goodness. You don't want to mix PRL with CBS. It's so hard getting Pure Red Lines as it is.  Keep up the good work.

      Thanks again. Going to do a big water change tomorrow then see how I go. Shrimp wise, there is a maidenhead aquatics near me that sell neocardina, so I was just going to use them to get 5 or so, to quite litterally test the waters. I've ordered a drip kit to help with acclimitising, I'm also going to turn the CO2 off, then slowly turn it on after a day or 2, to see how they do. When it comes to neocardina, is their care the same across the board, or are certain "colours" harder to care for? Would love a mix or reds and blues. Also food wise, what do you recommend? I was just looking at Shrimp King Complete.

      Yes, I can confirm that rock / pebble rock / gravel will cause the pH to raise over time.  My RODI water comes out as around 6.8 according to my pH meter.  And I did follow the manufacturer's suggestion to wait 5-6 minutes when measuring RODI water because of the low ion.  After adding it to the tank, the pH becomes 7.2 -> 7.4.  The highest that I've recorded in my journal is 7.6 but it never goes higher than that. Here is my shrimp's diet: On M-W-F, I feed Bacter AE + Shrimp Baby.  On T-TH-S, I feed Shrimp Dinner. And on Sunday, I feed Shrimp King Protein to increase shrimp production.  Water change is once a month because I have a ton of floating plants to keep Nitrate low. @sdlTBfanUK It's probably because of the low quality image so it makes some of the PRL babies' color turn black 😁 But there are no CBS at all in this shrimp tank

      That's very interesting. I have read a lot that PH fluctuates throughout the day naturally anyway but it is interesting that your Bee shrimp are fine at PH7.4 as indeed mine were also (although it is normally outside their ideal range)! The PH in my tank started at about 5.5 and then went up to 7.5 over about a year (rock caused that I suspect) but as it was a slow progression it didn't seem to have any affect on them at all! It looks like you have some crystal black babies in that tank as well? Simon

      @sdlTBfanUK pH is around 7.4 in the morning and 7.2 at night.  I know it's dangerous and easy to have pH swing when you don't have active substrate.  That's why I measure pH at least twice a day using the pH meter.
