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!

      Fantastic photos and great that the RO water unit and pen arrived so promptly! It is always exciting when you get a batch of shrimplets - something I am looking forward too! Simon

      Springs here, so maybe the shrimp are more active for breeding? Hope you are collecting the waste RO water for watering your plants.

      Bought an RO DI unit from FSA. Free postage and it arrived in 2 days. Very happy. The TDS pen arrived today so I got busy. For reference, I’m about 2 hours North of Sydney. Tap water: TDS 155-157. PH 7-7.2 RO water: TDS 0-1 (Remineralised to 150). PH 6.6 CRS tank water: TDS 198. PH 7-7.2 I siphoned a vey small amount of tank water and am in the process of drip feeding the RO water into the tank. I’ll do this method during water changes until the tank water PH is at 6.6 I guess.  Also found new born shrimplets yesterday and two more berried females. I haven’t seen any berried in about a month so I’m happy.

      But the shrimp will be thinking otherwise. Look at all that yummy brown diatom!
