I was taking a few pics late this afternoon of my orange breeders and little ones, when i spotted this little bloke in their midst, he is only about 3mm and would not stay still for the pictures. Amongst a sea of orange he stands out like a sore thumb. i will try and hunt him down over the next couple of daye and see if I can get better pics. He is actually a deep blue in colour the pict have a bit of reflection.post-29-139909857292_thumb.jpgpost-29-139909857291_thumb.jpgpost-29-139909857297_thumb.jpgpost-29-139909857295_thumb.jpg

substrate!!!! guys you are all going to shudder brrrrrrr a bit of well washed sea sand and a bit of black and grey river gravel

PH ATM 7.5 :cower:

I am always supprised at the odd shrimp that turns up when you start line breeding.:smiley_simmons: I never know what my next move will be,:encouragement:

I could throw him in with the little white one sometime in the future, Thats if I can find them again. Who Knows??? Thats what I like about this hobby the challenge!!!!! and the unknown.

      They were purchased after the incident, but I'm happy I found the crabs.😅

      I use cheap no name brand heaters now. I use them with my Inkbird temp controller, so I don't have to worry about the heater failing. ✌️

      😲 Oh no !!! 😭 At least you still have the micro crabs and 3 red wines.

      Agree on what jayc said, it's best to get a branded one for reliablitity, but even branded one do have a differences in temperature, +- .5 to 1 degree celcius which is normal.

      Most aquarium heaters have a built in thermostat, that will heat when the temp drops 1degree below the set temp and stop heating when the temps hit 1 degree above the set temp. So get one from Eheim, Fluval, Aqua One, Aquael, Hydor, to name a few brands. https://www.thetechden.com.au/Eheim_Jager_Heater_25w_p/jg3611.htm or  https://www.amazon.com/Fluval-Submersible-Glass-Aquarium-Heater/dp/B0027VMPXA/ref=lp_19171761011_1_23?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1568762295&sr=1-23  Depending on where you are from.   A temperature controller like the one kms posted is good as a backup protection for the built in thermostat in cheap aquarium heaters. And it can be used on heaters that do not have built in thermostats. Just make sure you buy one that is a suitable size for your tank. A 25W or 50W will be enough.
