Very cool looking bananas, lol. :encouragement: My yellows are breeding like crazy & all I have done is make sure they are well fed & the water is clean & stable & I've always got at least 3-4 berried girls. I think the most important thing is patience. :victorious:

This is a pic of some of my bananas, lol :encouragement:

Well what ever I'm not doing wrong to the Yellows I'm not doing wrong to the Crystals either. But on the other hand the Rilis, Chocolates and some of the mishlings have been doing ok, go figure, same water, food, lights etc and half breed, half don't .

Glass half full, glass half empty, all depends on how you look at it. I think it's awesome you got half of them breeding. :victorious:

Poets Corner Shiraz Cab Sav 2012 still a bit young but not a bad drop. My all time favourite is Scarpentoni School Block an excellent blend of Reds about $22 a bottle. My daughter used to work for them and the wine they make is excellent.

Didn't get a chance met Alan when I was 14 and a half and the rest is history. He always talks about those short skirts though:redface-new:

      Thanks for your input.. the tank is cement and is under our house, its what I use to top up my outdoor pond when it loses evaporation and the shrimp living out there are breeding.  I will certainly look into test kits but to begin with I am just going to cycle the tank with plants.  Thanks again!

      It is best to test the parameters of the 'source' water and go from there. Many people use dechlorinated tap water successfully with cherry shrimp (me included), but rainwater or RO water you will need to mineralise the water. I guess it is a bit too early at this stage as you don't have the tank yet, but you may want to ge the test kits so you are ready to go anyway - TDS meter/pen, GH, KH, PH and of course ammonia/nitrite/nitrate for cyclng the tank. I guess you can make life easier when you have the tests by testing the different 'sources' so you can get any minerals etc ready as well, and decide which source is going to best suit cherry shrimps? Rainwater is likely near to RO water so will likely need minerals added, and what is the storage tank/guttering made of, as some metals are toxic to shrimp, especially copper? Sorry, got a bit off original topic. All the equipment you originally listed looks good and well thought out from what I saw but as I am in UK it isn't the same 'stuff' here so hopefully someone from Australia will help with that aspect.

      I have often got odd groups of fungus growing when setting up new tanks, though not seen it on any shrimp, usually wood or ornaments etc and that clears itself in time once the tank is properly cycled and settled down. If he seems happy and active just keep a close eye on him and see how it progresses (hopefully disappears). Maybe the tank wasn't quite ready for him? I'm not quite sure how quickly/easy it is to cycle/establish when there are no plants, it may take longer as they are usually a part (speed up) of the process I would think, and if you have just got an ammonia reading this week? Keep testing Ammonia/nitrite and nitrate regulary at this point? If the ammonia gets too high it is normal to do a large water change, but that may trigger a molt so only do that if absolutely necessary. Don't overfeed the fish either (common mistake) as that may cause extra ammonia? What water are you using, RO or Tap? Simon

      So we have a rainwater tank under our house and I have a pond in the yard - was kind of planning on using rain water or water that has been cycling through my backyard pond, native pacific blue eye fish and native red nosed shrimp out there doing their own thing.   If I am stuck and in a drought then I might have to resort to filtered tap water...  does this sound like a plan?
    • sdlTBfanUK
      You have obviously done your research and I look forward to seeing how it progresses/goes. It all sounds very exciting and well planned out! I looked up the lighting and saw this video, don't know if you have already seen it but it seems quite informative (A80 model)! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZNKR2-kWbA With the filter you just need to be sure that the intake is shrimp safe so they don't get sucked into the filter? Do you know what water you will be using, Tap or RO and if tap water what the parameters of your tap water are. Usually you can use tapwater for cherry shrimp unless it has extreme parameters?  I am probably getting a bit ahead at this stage though? Simon
