Hi there

I'm a relatively new Shrimp keeper from Newcastle, currently got a simple tank set up with some cherries. Tried and failed a CRS tank which was a little sad.

Aside from shrimps i'm a student and photographer.

Nice to meet you all

*waves*

Indeed, i tried one forum but it was somewhat international and its a tad easier keeping things Australian. Or i start getting excited over all the other sweet species i can't get lol

Welcome aboard mate! don't worry about your failure with CRS/CBS we have all been down that path. Just be paitent 12 months time and you will most likely have some crystals in your "TANKS" Cherries are great and there are so many colours availble now that there will be enough to keep you busy for a long time. ENJOY!

      Just noticed you said 'thinking of adding tigers, would caridina work as well?' or something of the sort, just checking that you are aware that tigers are a species of the genus caridina? Those parameters should work brilliantly though for tigers and probably most other dwarf caridina (as opposed to like aussie natives or amanos and stuff). Tank looks fantastic!

      Stand looks terrific!!! Love the spot for the cat too! 😂

      That looks great and I'm sure shrimps will be very happy exploring and grazing in there. I look forward to hearing how it goes this time. I don't think anyone over here is sending shrimps (or fish) at the moment so I am not planning to get anything here soon, the fish are doing well in that tank, and there is 1 red steel shrimp survivor which shows itself occassionally?

      now the upload seems to be working with a 2Mb file ... but initially 6Mb seemed to big (popup with a "-200" error message, whatever that means 😐)

      Good to see you back and hopefully this time all will go well! Tiger shrimp would probably be best as a TESTER as they are less fragile and more adaptable to different parameters than Taiwan bee, so I would get a small group of those and see how that goes at this stage, you can change (or mix?) to the Taiwan bee if all works for a few months? With the correct parameters the PH should stay stable unless there is something like rocks that alter the PH. Using RO water plus the shrimp minerals will provide all the parameters at a set balance. I'm not aware of any changes since you posted the pctures back in April so can only assume it may be file size related, can you do one at 1mb or below? Simon
