Hey guys,

So I've been fairly quiet for a while, but that doesnt necessarily mean everythings going swimmingly... < hehe

Im still having the problem with one of my tanks. After getting my TDS pen all my tanks are sitting roughly the same. PH is in check as well as all the other levels. But I just got a death today. One of my blue cherries which was in the tank with my *thought were cured* CBS.

My 4 left over CBS are doing okay, colour returning and eating well. But randomly this blue cherry just died. So the infection (or whatever it is) must still be in my tank.

So.

Should I cull my left over shrimp and drain and clean the tank out completely. Or keep trying..

*people who saw my last thread on my shrimp disease will understand this thread better*

Oh an while I'm here.

From one of my healthy shrimp tanks.. ;)

Shrimps do just die even if the water conditions are perfect. So don't react too quickly, especially if you're comfortable that the WP, diet, minerals & water changes are good. I've seen many shrimps go through my tanks, and if you're vigilant with water changes, and ensuring the WP are good, these bacteria infections/diseases stay away…. Just monitor the shrimps …if their eating, moulting, and you're seeing shrimplets, it's ALL good :-)

      Sweet, I'll check out the website. Always good to find quality Aussie suppliers

      The majority of the plants are coming from Aquarzon Australia.  Adrian is an absolute champion- they are his shrimp as well:)

      Where are you sourcing the Buce from?  I have Rasbora Briggitae (chilli) in a 30 cube with shrimp. I love them. The colour is insane for a fish.   Looking forward to seeing this grow in.

      Can't wait to see it with all the plants in place. I ordered 6 of those fish for my tank just as lockdown happened. I also ordered 6 chilli rasbora to go in the same tank. Place sent 12 chilli instead of 6 of each which I was a bit miffed with but hey I was lucky to get anything at that time and had they had to wait a week longer I probably wouldn't have got anything so I am not holding it against them and I still have 11 alive so they were good healthy stock. I prefer the 'dwarf spotted rasbora' (as we know them here) you are getting so I may try getting some again at some stage, when things settle more or I need some other fish! Simon
