I know this has probably been asked a million times before but my shrimp keep dying and it's truely a mystery and being very new to shrimp keeping I'm hoping someone can help. Sorry this is long, tia!
I cycled my 21L tank for 2 months with plants (anubias on driftwood and hair grass with some floating rotala) I use Seachem Prime and Stability.
I tested everything and all was fine (we keep fish so I'm not new to water parameters just shrimp) I put in 3 large natives (pictured) and a pack of 10 glass shrimp I ordered from livefish.
All of the glass died within the week but the natives (transferred over from my housemates tank) are still thriving and have even shed the other week and grew a little. I feed algae wafers every 3 days and Hikari shrimp cuisine every second.
Did a small water change last week (10-15%) and on the weekend put in 2 cherries and 3 glass from an aquarium shop in. One of the cherries is dead and the others except 2 are hiding and I havnt seen them since the first day.
I've noticed a few detritus worms on my glass, could it be an oxygen issue? Temp is at 23°c same as housemates tank but the aquarium shop didn't seem to have a heater and livefish sent the glass in bags that arrived cold I floated the bags and let a little of my water in for about 40 mins before setting them free.
Hello i am new with Caridinas. I have some questions. Here i go to ask aboout the King Kong / Red Ruby.
If i keep them in two tanks separately. I will get Panda and Red Wine? Or i will get KKs / Red Ruby? I need another two tanks to select the Panda and Red Wine?
I want to do a shrimp rack room and I am plannig the tanks distribution hehehe.
Cherry - Clear legs with body covered in a little colour.
Sakura - Legs and bottom half covered in a little colour, top half has more colour coverage.
Fire - Full coverage of colour including the legs. Saddle and eggs on the female still visible under regular lighting.
Painted Fire - Same as Fire except the saddle and eggs on the female only visible under special lighting conditions.
Rilli - Solid portions of the shrimp are transparent. The more transparency, the higher the grade.
