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.

      Thank goodness. You don't want to mix PRL with CBS. It's so hard getting Pure Red Lines as it is.  Keep up the good work.

      Thanks again. Going to do a big water change tomorrow then see how I go. Shrimp wise, there is a maidenhead aquatics near me that sell neocardina, so I was just going to use them to get 5 or so, to quite litterally test the waters. I've ordered a drip kit to help with acclimitising, I'm also going to turn the CO2 off, then slowly turn it on after a day or 2, to see how they do. When it comes to neocardina, is their care the same across the board, or are certain "colours" harder to care for? Would love a mix or reds and blues. Also food wise, what do you recommend? I was just looking at Shrimp King Complete.

      Yes, I can confirm that rock / pebble rock / gravel will cause the pH to raise over time.  My RODI water comes out as around 6.8 according to my pH meter.  And I did follow the manufacturer's suggestion to wait 5-6 minutes when measuring RODI water because of the low ion.  After adding it to the tank, the pH becomes 7.2 -> 7.4.  The highest that I've recorded in my journal is 7.6 but it never goes higher than that. Here is my shrimp's diet: On M-W-F, I feed Bacter AE + Shrimp Baby.  On T-TH-S, I feed Shrimp Dinner. And on Sunday, I feed Shrimp King Protein to increase shrimp production.  Water change is once a month because I have a ton of floating plants to keep Nitrate low. @sdlTBfanUK It's probably because of the low quality image so it makes some of the PRL babies' color turn black 😁 But there are no CBS at all in this shrimp tank

      That's very interesting. I have read a lot that PH fluctuates throughout the day naturally anyway but it is interesting that your Bee shrimp are fine at PH7.4 as indeed mine were also (although it is normally outside their ideal range)! The PH in my tank started at about 5.5 and then went up to 7.5 over about a year (rock caused that I suspect) but as it was a slow progression it didn't seem to have any affect on them at all! It looks like you have some crystal black babies in that tank as well? Simon
    • DNTM_Shrimp_Breeders
      @sdlTBfanUK pH is around 7.4 in the morning and 7.2 at night.  I know it's dangerous and easy to have pH swing when you don't have active substrate.  That's why I measure pH at least twice a day using the pH meter.
