Old age finally caught up .... noticed her lying on her side (turned black to blue - commonly seen on stress CBS's), nudged her, she fluttered, took a pic, and she DIED.... RIP

Sorry to hear dude, with death comes new life, I'm sure she enjoyed her life in shrimp world & I'm sure she supplied more than her share of new life for you :victorious:

Yes, she left many great generations, and have made the CBS colony proud. Thus the thread :-), I'm a sentimentalist.:o

      Thanks for that, it helps to know that it is probably going to be fine with time. I tried a different substrate this tie so that is all I can put it down too! I will revert to the JBL in future as this hasn't happened with that? I don't use any plant ferttilisers, and as above have never had to with the JBL substrate. The JBL is primarily a plant substrate and the shrimp king is primarily a shrimp one I guess, though they both seem to do the same buffering /softening etc? There will be a bit of a delay with breeding I expect as they don't mature until they are 6 months I believe? Again, thanks for that, it helps to know what someone else thinks and the tank has improved (hard to believe from the photos) going a bit greener and the stringy algae virtually now disappeared. Also a few new leaves on some plants etc. I just checked the water parameters and they are spot on! Simon

      The new update has reduce the photo size to 1.67MB for me, and all the photo taken with my phone is over. My pinto only cost less that GBP 4, as for the Red Wine, its 5 for GBP 10.20, any extra Red Wine will be GBP 2 if more than 5 is purchased.

      New tanks often go through a brown diatom phase and its just a waiting game before the diatoms naturally senesce.  Ride it out. The shrimp will certainly help clean it up and I'd wager that diatom rich biofilm is good nutrition.  You'll have shrimp breeding before you know it.  There is certainly a good complex variety of habitat for them to explore and exploit. Are you using any plant fertilisers yet?

      Since the new update it allows larger files photos but I added some this morning and it worked ok? I also have a fondness for the red wine shrimps (that beautiful red wine colour) but unfortunately they don't appear to have survived very well (only seen 1 today) as they were the first I got, and came from a non breeder! I got some a couple of days ago (direct from breeder) which were the SS grade so a lot more white? I may get some standard red wines at a later date but I worked out I had already spent £360 on these new batches of shrimps so that is probably enough for now I think! The person who sold  me the blues, and the latest reds has loads of galaxy (and fancy tiger) on he website up for sale but for some reason I prefer the standard taiwan bee patterns. I suspect that some of the shrimps I got fro them will have galaxy/pinto genes though so I may end up with some groovy patterns like last time?????? That should be the next exciting thing I HOPE happens, shrimplets, woohoo! I have just done a full set of parameter tests on the shrimp tank and they are all good.....................  Simon

      I've added some additional to the tank, yesterday I added 8 new Red Wine and 1 black/white galaxy pinto. may be there is something wrong with me, I kind of fall in love with Red Wine more than any other variation. Total 1 Amano Shrimp 1 Pinto Galaxy 11 Red Wines 22 Thai Micro Crabs   I tried to upload photo, but this site keeps on giving me error.
