Pics of Cherry Rilli's

Recommended Posts

BlueBolts

My rilli projects have taken a positive step fwd recently, with some quality batches coming through, whereas previous batches were rather inconsistent with colour & pattern.. My WP are all suited to Caridina (i.e. CRS, TB.....etc), so although their productivity isn't great, quality is the main focus

Wondering whether anyone have heard, and more importantly seen a quality sunkist or yellow rilli colony .

I like your angler Squiggs, pity it doesn't have a trout on the end? Maybe you could try Chi's fly for bait???

Hahaha, yeah there is one catching a trout but I like this one better, the cast is much more crisp. I might give Chi's fly a go & see what I get, hopefully a big un. :victorious:

Let me guess BB, the pic was in focus when you took it! Sounds like your eyes are out of focus, it happens when you get old, hahaha :rofl:

p.s. Nice rili though, very cool! :encouragement:

Great looking shrimp.

And the camera wasn't out of focus, the shrimp moved at the last second or where they where sitting was in a high current/ flow area of the tank. So any perceived distortion is actually just the water movement in that area of the tank.

      Fantastic news!!! They may slow down/stop breeding in winter remember but that's not something you need to worry about at the moment. I think most people leave at least the back (I leave back and both sides) alone, to grow algae/biofilm, the babies especially like that? If you don't like seeing the growth on the back glass then you can get some black background to put behind the tank, this will also show the shrimps off better, especially babies if they are on the back???? Also as the sponge is black and the filter is also black etc they won't be so visually obvious????  Always great to hear a success story so thanks for the update! Simon

      GO FOR IT! As I wrote earlier mine are kept in KH2 and KH3 and do fine so I would think yours will be as well but just stretch out the acclimating as a precaution. My KH3 I use KH elixir which I got from ProShrimp but that was for the betta - incidentally using the elixir also increases the TDS, but I would go get those shrimps and see how you go first before trying to complicate things as I think they should be fine, so see how they go and expect maybe 1 or 2 may die in the first couple of weeks (expect that and if they don't you will be happier). As you say the soil is probably softening the water and that will stop eventually, so over time it will probably increase slowly, but my shrimp have lived for 5 years in KH2! Do you know what the TDS figure is now? Simon

      A small update. I have more shrimplets than I can count and numerous berried females too, which is great. I can see shrimplets of all sizes too, which indicates they're surviving nicely. Super stoked to see the population finally taking off. I imagine switching to RO water has been partly, if not totally, responsible for the uprated breeding and shrimplet survival. The pH has slowly dropped to around 6.8 since I started using it instead of tapwater. I'd also give some of the credit to the warmer weather with the change of season, but I've been here before and never had more than a couple berried at any time, and never had large numbers of babies. I realised I hadn't put a tank photo up recently. I cleaned it out months ago to make it easier to see the shrimp. This tank is really ugly, but its practical and the shrimp like it. I even leave the algae build-up on the rear glass in case they get something out of it haha.

      Those parameters are fine. I don't see KH of 2 being a problem with shrimp.

      I've been asking around. Could my Tropica Aquarium Soil be messing with my KH?
