Recommended Posts

Hey guys I have a question with this product , I bought some to try kick start a slow breeding tank , I put it in all my tanks and they went nuts !!! Then I put it in slow tank and ddnt do a thing , check params all in order nitrates are 10 though , shrimp are all healthy to the eye, colours a are good it's a tank if RCs and ycs , seperated by divider ph 7.5 gh is 6 kh 1 tds 230 ..

i thought something may may be off in water so I got a container and put few in it with brand new ro water re mineralised , and I added the breeding liquid STILL nothing?? Not even faintest interest in each other

can someone give me some feed back or suggestions as to why this particular tank isn't in a breeding mood ???

The benibachi breeding liquid doesn't work the same way for cherries ... ensure you don't overdose, and your WP (especially GH) is right, as it can cause issues.

Thanks bb do u know why it doesn't work the same?? Is it specifically aimed at crs cbs type shrimp? Would you say gh of 6 is good for cherries ? And also what do u think of 10ppm nitrate? To high?

Yes, its specifically designed for Cardina (CBS/CRS/TB....etc).... the chitosan release on moults differs from Neocardina's (cherries). Cherries can withstand much higher GH, and optimal breeding conditions for them also has KH, whereas the cardina prefers 0-1 KH.

The lower the nitrates the better. 10ppm is OK, but I wouldn't encourage anything more.

      Fantastic photos and great that the RO water unit and pen arrived so promptly! It is always exciting when you get a batch of shrimplets - something I am looking forward too! Simon

      Springs here, so maybe the shrimp are more active for breeding? Hope you are collecting the waste RO water for watering your plants.

      Bought an RO DI unit from FSA. Free postage and it arrived in 2 days. Very happy. The TDS pen arrived today so I got busy. For reference, I’m about 2 hours North of Sydney. Tap water: TDS 155-157. PH 7-7.2 RO water: TDS 0-1 (Remineralised to 150). PH 6.6 CRS tank water: TDS 198. PH 7-7.2 I siphoned a vey small amount of tank water and am in the process of drip feeding the RO water into the tank. I’ll do this method during water changes until the tank water PH is at 6.6 I guess.  Also found new born shrimplets yesterday and two more berried females. I haven’t seen any berried in about a month so I’m happy.

      But the shrimp will be thinking otherwise. Look at all that yummy brown diatom!
