Hey Kev, not in sydney, but thought i could pass on some useful ideas/information to get a shrimp club/society going.

Find a small group of 3-5 people who would be very passionate/reliable and get a way for you all to throw ideas around for what could work.

I would say get in contact with the aquarium society of nsw, but they have since become defunk. which could even open the door up to getting the NSW society back up and running as is happening on the gold coast currently.

For running a shrimp day, possibly look at local aquariums and see if they are happy to host an event. See if they will fund a BBQ or something, encourage people to donate items to get some funds for the club to be able to grow into the future.

If youd like more ideas/help with setting up/running a day just let me know. Myself and my partner travel up to Sydney a fair bit, so could even match up a date and come along to sydneys first ever shrimp club ;)

      Great shot of Big Mama!  I reckon, 1 week tops for hatching.

      Great photo and news. The eggs are fading yellow but there are eyes so all looking good and there are a lot of eggs! Probably about half way ready to hatch.

      Let's hope the big mama can lay safely those eggs

      Sorry, I'm not in that area. 🙃   I prefer Glass tanks. Acrylic scratches way too easily. Often while cleaning algae off the sides. And once it's built up enough scratches, viewing gets obstructed.    Often going with LARGE tanks, you start to fall into custom built stands. So don't be surprised if you cannot find anything suitable.

      The easiest way wouod be to go to an aquarium shop and get a tank with a cabinet made for that tank, as that should be able to support the weight, as water in any large quantity is very heavy. I suspect it would have to be a glass aquarium at that capacity, otherwise the plastic would have to be very thick. It is possible to use a non aquarium specific piece of furniture but as you say it is quite risky, though I did help a friend do that by strengthening a nice decorative piece of furniture they had that they wanted to put a 350L tank on. It has been doing the job for 10 years but also bear in mind water marks, and we had to varnish many coats to make sure water doesn't soak into the wood etc. Its not really worth it in reality, it cost a lot of money to buy all the wood/stuff to strengthen it so was probably no cheaper, and a lot of time doing it. It may be dearer to get a combo tank and stand but much much easier and safer, and only you can know what ones you llike the appearance of? I would start off going to local stores and seeing if they have any you like, and even if not it will give you ideas?
