Hey Gang,

Need help if possible, Awaiting some shrimp from 2OFUS shipped yesterday from Syd to Canberra and not received as yet, Would anyone have Garry's Mob or could contact him to PM or text me the freight details please.

I've PM'd his profile here also.

Just a little nervous they haven't turned up.

Regards,

Oh really! and they were fine? I have only had 2 other shipment of shrimp to go off and that was on doorstep 1st thing next morning and came from further away. I guess I'm judging by those experiences. Having anxiety doesn't help :/

Thanks for the input Ninja.

2-3 days for express, & 1-2 days for plat. Depending on packing (i.e. kordon bags), they'll be good to 10+ days.....unsure about the freezing temps in Canberra though... shouldn't be a problems whatsoever.....

I had some missing for 17 days with out breather bags and only had 30% losses, so they are tough little critters, AP is not consistent at all.

Yes they are beauties from Gary and added assurance is Gary will look after you (as will most if not all members from SKF) if by some freak accident something happens, so you are covered.

      So an update...  I called the store that said they had an ADA 90f on their website and they dont have one.  ADA dont even make that tank anymore.   So guys help me out.. do you consider that the 60F 600x300x180 is too small for a small school of celestial pearl danios or cilli rasboras and shrimp?  30 litres This would certainly help me out with the overall build budget!  I have also found a fireAqua tank being imported into Western Australia that is 900x300x240. I am still in the budget and planning stage and would really appreciate your input team. Thanks for your help sub

      You should be able to tell the difference when they colour up a bit as those 2 type look quite different/distinctive patternwise! If you can't tell then put them in one tank and let them grow a bit bigger or just colour up a bit more then you will be able to tell and move one set to a different/seperate tank! Probably if they are small then there isn't much likelyhood of them crossbreeding as they are too young? Welcome to the forum! Simon

      Evening Guys,    I had a shipment (small one) arrive today, but the sender has mixed my King Kongs and Black Pintos in the same bag. Is there an easy tell tale as to which is which? (rather small juvies) These are my first bee's and really wanted to keep things separate for now. Thanks in advance.

      Only anything smaller than a neon tetra. They are unlikely to catch them however. Bottom dwellers are most at risk. But if your pleco is larger than a neon tetra size, it should be fine. Just keep the Long Arm well fed.

      If you want some special local NT Shrimps, email me aqua.green(at)bigpond.com there are other small shrimps in the top end no one has tried.  If you can get me into Kakadu there are some really nice shrimps on and at the base of the Arnhem Land Escarpment. Many would be good in the aquarium trade.   Kakaducarididae_revision.pdf
