Yeah, I'm interest to see the results too. No Planeria has been getting a pretty poor rep of late, but it's been mostly anecdotal results.

ok so it has been roughly 24 hours at half dose of recomended dose ,witch is 1 spoon per 50 ltrs

i dosed at 1 spoon per 100 ltrs my ph rainge's in tanks from 6.8-7.2 temps rainge from 18 dc-26 dc and my stock list is rather vast and expencive .

i can see 0 problem's with my tanks so far o casualtys 0 side afects '' only problem i can note is my water is not quite as clear as it was prior to doseing

all of the visable hydra is now a speck/dot nothing more im so thrilled with the result's im not going to do the second dose

im going to wait and see if any of the hydra i could see , roughly 30 per tank , actualy die or survive as im curiouse how lower dose is afective as i like the least amount of adetives in my tanks as posible sompthing i picked up in the fish keeping

and to be honest id be glad if all it did was pause the hydra for a month ,,but i will keep this thred updated as time goes on

still got me stuffed how i got hydra as i use rain water filter twice through .04 micron filter ,i can only asume plants

hope the info is useful to others

well day 3 all seems good tanks are clear and all are alive 0 casualtys eaven shrimplets still running around , this is the 50% dose test of no planeria one dose only as i can see no surviveing hydra , and dont like adetives in my water if possible ,,just for the hell of it tonight i will dose one tank with another 50% no planeria so i have a comparisen tank , to see if the hydra comes back in the others or not at one dose , and second tank at 2 doses , ill do the tank with chocolate cherys and ss crs , wich i can then keep an eye on the shrimps to see any problems in low-medium grade shrimp ,,

quick update ,no visible hydra , no deaths , all is well ,, so id say if your trying to kill hydra 2 half doses of no planeria , will do the trick and a seems to be 100 % safe and afective at half dose rates for those that are shy

Thanks for sharing, great work. Do you have strong surface agitation, and what's your filtration like ? i.e. filter rate/turnover ? During the 1st week of testing, did you do any water changes ? Thanks

Very cool results, very promising to see No Planeria is having such positive results when it's had such a bad rap in the past, great work liljohn! :victorious:

I have results to post as well with a different dosing method

day 1 = 25% dose + PRIME for ammonia

day 2 = 50% dose still planaria + PRIME for ammonia

day 3 = 50% dose still planaria + PRIME for ammonia

15% water change

day 4 not sure if i dosed anymore

then gave up

a week or 2 later I see no planaria, not even the tiny ones!

0 deaths, most of my mini ramshorn snails survived too :)

125l tank

Great results neosin, thanks for sharing. It's very good to see more results of a promising nature, makes me wonder if they've changed the formula at all after so many bad experiences previously? :victorious:

      Those are really great photos! I especially like the established tank (last  photo) and the beautiful shrimps. I'm sure the new tank will look just as fabulous once everything grows in! It is so easy to get carried away in this hobby, how many of us have said 'just one more tank'???? I like the idea of a separate REDs tank! I just got 17 mixed red Taiwan bee shrimps this morning, acclimating those while writing this? Simon

      Following the creation of Taiwan Bee Shrimp Tank Journal #1 (http://www.aquariumlife.com.au/showthread.php/68743-Taiwan-Bee-Shrimp-Tank-Journal), I have decided to set up another tank dedicated to Taiwan Bees. This has however ended my journey in breeding CPD's (http://www.aquariumlife.com.au/showthread.php/66596-Planted-CPD-Breding-Setup?highlight=) Equipment - PetWorx 40l tank as used in the CPD journal - Up Aqua Pro U LED Light 45cm - ADA Amazonia - Co2, yes at the moment but will significantly reduce to a very slow 24/7 bubble count once shrimp are in - Fluval C2 HOB Filter Plants - Staurogyne Repens - Buce - Dwarf Hairgrass - Mini Christmas Moss - Micro or Mini Java Fern which i might remove to make the tank look a little more minimal Shrimp - Will likely grab some culls from my other tank to see how they go with the very low co2 injection - If these go alright will attempt to line breed some really nice shadow pandas or get into wine reds Planting Stage l Approx 1 Week After Planting Potential Inhabitants All from this tank!

      OK, I'll get the shrimps in today and then at the weekend I will take a few pictures! Simon

      Pic of the tank?

      I added some blue bolt shrimps about 2-3 weeks ago and they seem to be doing well! The stringy algae seems to have cleared, the tank is still a bit drab but I think it is going greener as well. Yesterday I ordered the red shrimps and am just awaiting them to be delivered later today: All going well (fingers crossed) that should be it all done now! I don't see many of the first couple of batches in the tank but I am not convinced the tank was really ready enough which would be my misjudgement, I used a different substrate, and I bought the shrimps from a shop, but I am not sure what the reason was so not prepared to 'blame' anyone else! I MAY consider getting some more from the shop but I have enough really but would like a few red wine (normal grade) or black bee mixed grades so we will see on that? These shrimp (and the blue bolts previously) came/are coming from Shrimp Corner in the UK (they sent me these pictures) which seem to be an enthusiast/business so they come directly from them (breeder) and the previous delivery was well packaged (too bloody well resulting in many swears at the time) and lovely colours and patterns. They seem to be specialising in the higher grades and especially galaxy etc. 2 days ago they won at the European shrimp cup for their red steel so they are definitely enthusiasts and I have received top quality service thus far - probably tempting fate to say this whilst awaiting a delivery, d'oh!  Anyway, big day for me today, woohoo!
