Anyone got any good Shrimp recipes. No not really.

I'm from beautiful Brisbane but the weather is getting a little bit warm here lately, over 30 for the last few days. I'm getting a bit worried about my CRS the tank temperature is 26.5 degrees! how much can these little blighters take.

What do people do besides air conditioning and ice filled bottles in the water.

It has been warm that last few days, most people use small chillers but if you are chilling multiple tanks then your best off with AC & bottles of frozen water are definitely a cheap effective option for multiple tanks. :encouragement:

I wouldn't let the temp get much higher, you will probably start seeing adverse effects on your shrimp. :dejection:

I know it's getting pretty bad and this is only the start of Spring, I'm hoping it will cool down a bit shortly because I've got a couple of preggers CRS and I don't want to lose the little Shrimpies.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan

4 cloves garlic, crushed away from skin

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

24 jumbo shrimp (preferable KingKong or BlueBolt but when the budget is tight Red Cherries will do), peeled and deveined, tails in tact

2 teaspoons grill or steak seasoning blend (recommended: Montreal Seasoning by McCormick) or coarse salt and pepper

1 lemon, zested and juiced

2 tablespoons chopped parsley leaves, a handful

Directions

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan, garlic, red pepper flakes and shrimp. Season with grill seasoning or salt and pepper and cook shrimp 3 minutes or until just pink. Toss with lemon zest, juice and chopped parsley. Remove shrimp to a serving platter leaving the garlic cloves in the pan.

Recipe looks good, BUT not keen on getting my BB legs stuck between my teeth ... :p

A/C the room...adds comfort to you and the shrimp... it'll work out to be a cheaper alternative, espacially once you've built you rack.....and don;t say never :-)

It's a fish breeding room, I've already had racks and sumps. Now I just have some giant tanks which I don't have to worry about as they contain Discus and Fronnies etc. I might have to drill a hole in the side of the fridge and run some tubing through it just for the CRS. Or stick them in a goldfish bowl and put them in the fridge.

I might have to look at that recipe if it gets any warmer, looks delicious.

      I have had the new shrimps a week and have ordered some new ones(10) for delivery friday. There are probably at least 6 of the 8 alive (they may even all be alive still) but as the tank is so densely planted it is difficult to tell, but I saw 2 black and 2 red this morning, as yesterday, but I'm sure 1 red and  1 black weren't the same as the ones I saw yesterday so there are probably at least 6, if that makes any sense??? Anyway that will be it for now and I will just let the tank and shrimps do there thing once this batch are in there in a couple of days, and I can get back to the usual routine as was, before this unfortunate event wiped out the last lot. All parameters are good, including the nitrates now, but there are a lot of brown patches on the plants and moss balls still......... It all looks a bit drab and uninspiring and brown!!! I probably just need to be a bit more patient? I will do some maintenance tomorrow and a small 2L water change, then the new shrimps will go in on friday after acclimatising. The shrimps were totally uninterested in the spinach or shrimp lolly I put in at the weekend but I am assuming they have so much biofilm at this stage that that is keeping them busy and well fed and they are staying under cover until they get used to their new environment and this strange ugly monster that keeps peering in at them through the glass from time to time? I guess if some 100ft tall bloke kept peering through my window a few times a day I would be a bit nervous/reserved shall we say? I removed the spinach and the shrimp lolly and put the shrimp lolly in the betta tank and within minutes there were 10 shrimp on it so there was definitely nothing wrong with that shrimp lolly!

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.

      Very wise as once they start breeding your population may sky rocket anyway, as they have with the CBS! I'm sure you should get some really nice surprises/colours when they start cross breeding too! Simon

      I will stick with the present shrimps, give it another month or so before I add some more shrimps.

      More fantastic pictures love the blue shadow panda and the 2 red pinto galaxy. Great to hear all is going so well! If you have a lot of CBS then they will breed when they are old enough so losing the 'mother' isn't too bad at this stage and they only love max 2 years anyway. Glad you still have 2 blue bolts as well - those will probably be my next purchase when they are in stock? The putting spinach in my tank has brought a few of my shrimps out but bizarrely they aren't touching the actual spinach? Seen 2 black and 3 red (of the 8 total I bought) so far today? Simon
