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 :-)

      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

      update my new tank is becoming stable, the shrinps are growing, I have seen many of the shrimps shread it's shell.   My old tank is infested with black CRS, but the mother had just died yesterday, I still have two blue bolts and a few CRS.
