Stunning international innovations!

Recommended Posts

Squiggle

Just thought I'd share some stunning shrimp that are surfacing from international breeders. The first one is Vitézslav Bosák, a Czech breeder who lives in Venezuela, the second is Burak Aksoylu from São Paulo, Brazil & the third is Bernd Pühl, who I believe is German. So it is very interesting to see that some of the most interesting stuff is not just coming out of Germany, Japan or Taiwan. image_zpsb75c1baa.jpg image_zpsf5b95765.jpg image_zps49f211ea.jpg

Loving the purple, it does look like it's been "enhanced" a bit with the ol photoshop but I'm keen to see more purple shrimp!

Great looking Shrimp, can't believe the dedication and time these breeders must put in to create such variations. That said, i would have to include all of the SKF members who excell in doing so with their breeding programs.

Last & by no means least, the most stunning shrimp I've seen in a while, a Skunk TaiTibee from Waldemar Kolecki in Poland, just awesome!

I think it's actually an Extreme KK, or maybe a Pinto, with an interesting speckled pattern. :thumbsu:

WOW! What an awesome looking shrimp! I like how some of the dots are white while others seem to have the shadow coloration. Does the whole shrimp seem to have a purple base or is that just my eyes?

 

Thanks Squiggs for these pics they are totally sweeeeet!!! :thumbsu:

      Oh no it’s magnetic... could be a problem with my magnet cleaner. Although, depending on the attraction I could just use the mag cleaner for the top 3/4 of the tank and get a scraper or something for the bottom.

      Ooh I just found a sand that looks almost perfect, it even comes in the right package size for my tank. https://www.aquaticsupplies.com.au/products/pisces-iron-sand It’s another Pisces & Oliver Knott creation; AquaIron. Says it doesn’t alter the KH/GH/pH/TDS etc. Only problem is it says it should not be added to established tanks due to... cloudiness?? What do u think about this one?  Thanks again for your guys’ help!

      I was hoping it wasn't the pisces brand. Oh well, cross that off my recommended list. Are you willing to try AquaLava by Oliver Knott? I know it's not cheap.   Maybe. Got a link or something to where you would buy this? Without going into a whole Geology session, it depends on what the composition of the volcanic sand was.  We get a lot of our Scoria from NZ, that is generally inert.      If you want to go with sand, generally, your choice is Bunnings play sand. However, since sand can be sourced from any quarry anywhere in Australia, there is no guarantee it is inert. You can only buy it and then test for changes to the water parameter.

      Hey guys, just found an add for this website showcasing a cool-lookin native algae eating shrimp. https://algaeeatingshrimp.com.au/products/australian-algae-eating-shrimp Anyone heard of these before or own any? My interest was peaked by the claim that they eat hair-type algae, as I have some on my crypts and lace fern that I cannot remove. And for a price of $4 ea, and super easy parameters, they sound pretty doable!  Tell me more oh great SKFians! 😁 (or feel free to point me towards an already existing page) post-note: have you/do you keep these grubs? Seems like your sort of thing.

      Agreed! I had a tank with this setup but it came with the sponge behind the slits. Try not to get too fine sponge as that will restrict the flow and block too quickly. You will need to keep clearing the sponge every now and again as well! Simon
