Thanks all for the warm welcome :)

I found an add on Gumtree, they were advertised as A's, and from what I can see (only very new to this though, have seen the charts) they are A's. I grabbed 10. I've got them in a tank (already running with some cherrys and young bristlenose) while I finish setting up and cycling they're own. Couldn't help myself... had to get them before their tank is ready.. but fingers crossed they'll live.

Hopefully next time you don't need to buy from Gumtree. Many have been burnt by unscrupulous sellers, including myself. Get the premium membership, access the classifieds area and you'll have the best shrimps in Australia ;)

Oh that sucks, the only thing I keep with my shrimp is an otto or two to keep the algee to a minimum.

Ahh, that sucks. I've only got a few young bn's that will be moved to where they're supposed to be in their grow out tank with the rest. Thanks for the tip mate.

How do I do that mate? Probably a dumb question... excuse my ignorance if it is. Hmm, I should actually put that under my name :congratulatory:

Edit-- Ok, I've found it :)

      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 about 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 edit - I like the Green shrimps but dismissed them as the plants are also green so they will be very difficult to see, green on green, if that makes sense. Just something to consider?

      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.
