Yes it appears to be heading in the right direction. Attended another 10% water chg yesterday tds is now 170ish. What do most big time experienced keepers keep crs/cbs at ? My remineralized ro is 140 ....

Occasional deaths do happen, and if all WP are great, and no other changes have happened, then just keeps close watch. Berried females are more susceptible, just ensure you do a regular dose of mineral powder.

Sorry am I missing something ? I am adding the minerals to the ro when doing water chgs .... ? Wouldnt adding it otherwise just succeed in raising the tds ?

You are right, adding more SaltyShrimp minerals would raise TDS but BB is talking about a mineral powder additive made by Benibachi, you add a little bit every week or two to just add that little bit of extra goodness to the water. You only need a good sized pinch per 100L. Yeah I know, another thing to add to the tank, lol. :victorious:

What you are adding to the Ro is the saltyshrimp, what BB means is the mineral powder (small pinch each week) like benibachi or shirakura...Female Berried girls are very susceptible as they are extra stressed, this is why some breeders like to separate them. I have lost many a berried girl...as have many others. As for the eggs if the girl was freshly berried when she died there will be a small percentage of the eggs hatching as they tend to fungus up, so if the girls was berried 2wks+ then the eggs have a much higher chance of hatching. With the eggs you don't want them actually tumbling like fish eggs but a constant water flow through the net just so the water they are kept in is not stagnant.

      Had a quick look in my new invertebrates book and think they are Limnopilos naiganetri! If so it says temperature 24 to 28, Ph 7.5 - 8.5. They should be given driftwood and floating plants. It also says that although they carry eggs, raising the young has not been done in captivity (book produced 2015). This youtube video says she has had breeding though???? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPOIq4AsZCE I had thought about getting some in the past but as she says they are a bit like spiders so that put me off................ Hope everything else is going well still! Simon

      I'm really happy, finally a local shop in Hong Kong had some of these crabs, not to sure which variation of the spider crabs,, but they advertised them as miniature spider crabs (Limnopilos naiyanetri) , I was going to bring them back from Taiwan if I find any, but no need now, got them for about GBP 13.50 for 10 crabs, I will pick up another 30 crabs in the next few day.   The first photo is the crabs in the bag, I won't get home till tmr, the second photo is taken at the shop.

      You can do large water changes, I do it every 6 months to reset the minerals in the water, but you cannot just dump the new water back into the tank. It needs to be fed in slowly. I drip in the new water after adjusting it to match previous parameters.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Shrimp don't need much of a water change as they are low bioload! I have 30L and only do 2L per week so as with JayC cut back on the water change amount, even .5 litre would be ok! Large water changes tend to trigger moulting so they may be moulting too often? They may drop the eggs if they aren't fertilised and therefore unwanted! Have you seen any that look to be able yet?
