Hello, north side of Brisbane is where I live. Had a few aquariums for awhile now, I'm addicted too :tears_of_joy: I've had Cherry's for a couple years, just got my first CRS's about a week ago... so far so good :cheerful:

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 :)

      I don't boil the driftwood when I put it in the tanks as JayC says, the tannins are good for the shrimps and it has never made the water so brown it becomes a problem, only slightly brown! I guess though that it may be a safe/good precaution to boil it anyway! Some countries are very strict about importing shrimps, from what I hear on here I think it is illegal in Australia to import shrimps/crabs etc so that is why people needed to know where you are based. Being based in UK I don't really know much about buying shrimps in the US so hopefully someone will come through with this. There are lots of youtube videos made by Flip Aquatics (I think they are Ohio based???) which is based in the US though!   Simon

      Still holding around 25.1-25.7 degree Celsius, so it seems good. I still want to add some micro crabs, I'll see if.I can get some in taiwan  they should be able to sort out any necessary paper work.

      That was quick. I see you have sourced some driftwood. Don't be too worried about removing the tannins. Its actually good for the shrimps.

      On the 4th rinse/boil of the new drift wood, water is looking much less brown. Rock coming out tonight.

      Sorry, I assumed mentioning that I plan to order online made this answer fairly universal. I’m in the US. My bad. I assume that I still need to be at least a bit careful with where I source driftwood. Boiling and removing tannins is obvious, but trying to avoid any further issues when I replace this rock.
