I found this guy today while mucking about in one of my tanks and cant decide if its a juvi female or an amazingly coloured male.

Believe it or not both pictures are of the same shrimp.

There should be some suitable females in the tank for him, girls like these

Would you say he is well on the way to being a fire red? I know his legs aren't solid red but they are getting close.

very nice looking shrimp, good job. Can the antanae in cherries be used in a similar way to crystals to determine sex?

      They were purchased after the incident, but I'm happy I found the crabs.😅

      I use cheap no name brand heaters now. I use them with my Inkbird temp controller, so I don't have to worry about the heater failing. ✌️

      😲 Oh no !!! 😭 At least you still have the micro crabs and 3 red wines.

      Agree on what jayc said, it's best to get a branded one for reliablitity, but even branded one do have a differences in temperature, +- .5 to 1 degree celcius which is normal.

      Most aquarium heaters have a built in thermostat, that will heat when the temp drops 1degree below the set temp and stop heating when the temps hit 1 degree above the set temp. So get one from Eheim, Fluval, Aqua One, Aquael, Hydor, to name a few brands. https://www.thetechden.com.au/Eheim_Jager_Heater_25w_p/jg3611.htm or  https://www.amazon.com/Fluval-Submersible-Glass-Aquarium-Heater/dp/B0027VMPXA/ref=lp_19171761011_1_23?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1568762295&sr=1-23  Depending on where you are from.   A temperature controller like the one kms posted is good as a backup protection for the built in thermostat in cheap aquarium heaters. And it can be used on heaters that do not have built in thermostats. Just make sure you buy one that is a suitable size for your tank. A 25W or 50W will be enough.
