Does anyone know what happened to Shrimpsider?

Recommended Posts

As the heading says, does anyone know what happened to Imke, a.k.a. Shrimpsider? I used to read her site regularly as it was a wealth of good reliable information & I went to have a bit of a read & was horrified to find a post saying goodbye.

http://shrimpsider.wordpress.com/

I was wondering if anyone knows why she has just dropped out of the shrimp game? I for one am sorry to see such a knowledgeable person drop out of the shrimp hobby & I'm sad to see her go. :(

Now Chi's absence explains why there hasn't been so much hatred and envy towards bb's constant success with his bb mutations an tibees lately haha.

Such a shame to loose ShrimpSider but 5 years your interest can often change

I think from her closing statement and some remarks in her posts it is also due to the change in attitude of people . As we have seen and heard from other forums things ain't what they used to be. Thankfully our forum members are fantastic and its often the members who cheer us up at moments of loss instead of being told how stupid you are for the loss as on some sites.

Hahaha, maybe Andrew. :encouragement: I have to agree with you BigD, our interests do change over time but, as Ineke mentioned, I think it's the people(this forum not included) that have changed. I really hope she hasn't had too many bad experiences that she is completely jaded by it. I do hope she doesn't stay away for good, the one thing that gives me hope of her returning is these little guys are so cute & addictive, also, I hope she got as much joy out of Shrimp Staring as we all do. :victorious:

I know, I could maybe understand not posting any new info but there's not even access to the unbelievably library of existing knowledge :cower:

Imke is just taking a refreshing and well deserved break away from the shrimp world. :-) A true and absolute asset to our hobby.....we'll await patiently for her return. :-)

Yay!! I'm so glad she hasn't left for good, would definitely be a massive loss for the shrimp hobby. Hope she has a great break. :victorious:

Thanks BB :encouragement:

      Hi Team! So the tank has been commissioned and paid for.  Final dimensions are 900x400x200, rimless, 10mm PPG starphire glass, polished edges.   Now trying to think about design ideas Idea 1 would be a 5 stone layout with a split or canyon between the main and second stone.  This layout would attempt to play with the scale- seeming like a vast landscape. Idea 2 uses larger stones and breaks the surface - I think the sense of scale would be changed here and would not seem so large - more like one mountain monolith. Idea 3 brings the scale to 1:1 and uses some kind of tree roots to create a creek or river bottom. What other ideas could work?  I guess I will have to see as I try to find what kind of hardscape I can actually source. Thanks for any and all advice or ideas Have a great day

      Let the RO water sit for 24hours before testing pH. That will give you the true pH level.

      Allright thanks, ill do 25% Waterchange weekly, i have many poweder food here, that should be working 😃 Thanks. Im already dripping my water, one litre per hour.

      Shrimps aren't very high bioload so you should probably reduce the weekly water change to no more than 25% and the new water will need to be dripped into the tank over many hours. I haven't used salty shrimp but I have heard it usually comes out about 6.8 so I don't think that is a problem. It is more likely to be you are changing too much water which has that PH difference of 1 may be too much for the babies to cope with. Lava rock won't alter the PH/KH so thats fine. Just do 20-25% weekly water changes, adding the ew water with a driper and I think you will be fine. I would probably get some baby shrimp food as well and that will be a powder,, so use a pin, dip the tip 2-3mm in to the tank quickly to wet, then in the powder and then swirl that in the tank so it spreads around. It is a fairly small tank so there may not be quite enough natural biofilm (caution not to over feed though). Simon

      Sorry, yes you are right.  I have tropica powder Soil with Taiwan Bees. They are all healthy, no one is dying, buy my shrimp babys die off after maybe 2-3 weeks 😕 The only rock i have inside my tank is lava rock. im asking, why the PH is rising, because im putting RO water with only GH salt inside the RO water. Still the PH is rising to 6,8 PH after maybe 24-48 hours. Im little bit concerned, because my RO Water has maybe 5,8 PH? and the difference is too high to raise that fast. Maaybe thats killing my baby shirmps? The high difference. But i dont want to put any KH anymore in my Waterchange water. Thank you so much for your help 😃
