Hello everyone!!!
 
Just to let everyone knows that ShrimpyDaddy.com has been upgrade. Below are the enhancements:
  • The blog section comes with more search and filtering features. This will allow easier searching of past posts. You may access it from here: Blog
  • If you have been appreciating my shrimp photo, you will like the next feature. Now I had split the photo blog out and named it "Moments". This will allow you to access all the photos at a glance. You may access it from here: Moments
  • Similar to the Blog engine, the Article engine had been enhanced. Now it has tree structure for easier navigation. You may access it from: Articles. Other than the upgrade on features, I had added a few more articles. Below are the newly added articles and those work in-progress:
    • Detailed steps on how to setup the shrimp tank (Published)
    • Recommended Dosing Regime (Published)
    • Water Restarting Procedure (Published)
    • Understanding Water Chemistry (In-progress)
    • Setting Up Planted Shrimp Tank with Medium-Low Lighting and CO2 Injection (In-progress)

Thanks.

 

Sulawesi shrimp is quite challenging. However, it really depending on you are getting the wild type or true captive-bred type. The wild type dies extremely easily initially.

Congrats on the New page it looks awesome.

 

I also noticed a products page but I couldn't tell whether you ship to Australia. Its quite exciting as I wanted to try out your products since I read about them and seeing the before and afters.

I do, but I will suggest hold on first.

The problem is the custom and tax portion. I will do some testing for the next few weeks and see what are all the implications. ;)

I have a friend volunteer to do shipping from AU. If AU has high demand, I could get him to do it.

But for now, it is just tiny business to pay for my excess hobby spending. LOL!!!

I'm sending something to AU tomorrow. Hence, we should know soon.

But.... Are you aware that you have to pay 10% sales tax when collecting the package?

Awesome I will wait until a couple of weeks before I make an order. :D

 

Actually I am a tax accountant and I understand there is GST on items purchased in Australia. My understanding of GST laws for items that are purchased overseas is that it should be GST free unless the person purchasing the items decide to sell the items in Australia. LOL yes I am a nerd!

 

The thing is Shrimpy Daddy since you have priced your product very reasonably if I order what I need plus pay 10% and another $50 on top it would still be cheaper then equivalent products from some of the "Brand names" product out there. Also since you had shown love and passion for this hobby I would like to support your products as I believe you would be putting the shrimps interests first. :D

Sadly, EU has VAT even on imported goods for personal use. :(

 

I checked on Netherland last night, someone was asking me. If you declare it for as commercial goods with proper HS commodity code and under EUR450, you don't need to pay import tax. But, you have to pay 21% VAT.... *sigh*~ Given said that, I still got a couple of orders coming from EU. v(^.^)v

      I'm thinking of ordering that "Salty Shrimp - Shrimp Mineral GH/KH+". My only concern is, does it also have all the needed minerals for my plants? Edit - If I was to use my tap water, what kind of GH should I be aiming for?
    • sdlTBfanUK
      WOW, that's hard water all right! Amazing how different it is to mine as probably only about 25 miles between us???? You were right to use RO water so at least you have a good starting point from here in! The PH may be the biggest issue as remineralising with a shrimp specific GH/KH+ will sort everything else with RO water. Cherry shrimps are pretty tough and adaptable so will tolerate PH below 7 but the nearer you can get to 7 the better, and a long time acclimating the shrimps using a dripper (there is a tube with regulator sold by ProShrimp for about £10 I think if you don't already have something) will be needed! The soil will take longer to loose its PH buffering ability with the RO though! There are a number of ways you can go from here: 1) RO water plus a GH/KH+ and try to get the PH up somehow although you will be fighting the Soil until that exhausts its buffering ability. 2) You could mix RO and (dechlorinated) tap water at 3:1 and then use a GH+. I do a 50/50 'similar' (half tap water, half brita filtered water) on my oldest tank. can't even remember why but I believe in 'don't try and fix it if it isn't broken' so have just carried on ever since. The mixed water would start at PH 6.2, TDS 70(ish), GH just over 4, KH just under 4 and then you can mineralise it (GH+ only) for the rest. This will exhaust the soil buffering quicker than 1 above and you will save a bit on RO water, use less (about half as much) mineraliser etc. You may think this is a bit too fussy a route though, and the soil will still buffer anyway, just not for as long as all RO water, and when it stops buffering you will have a PH closer to the ideal for the shrimps. Probably where you are now I would just get the snails for now until you have stopped adjusting the water or at least decided where next, probably not much longer before you get shrimps. I would also try turning off the CO2 and just see if it is really needed, if it looks like it is you can easily turn it back on then, but shrimps will do better without it and it MAY not be needed, same for fertilisers??? At least you are doing all this before getting the shrimps, very smart as most of us have learnt the hard/wrong way................ Simon

      Did some tests on my tap water. PH: 7.13 TDS: 274 KH: 15 GH: 17 Nothing out of the ordinary with the other test, nitrates were about 5ppm.

      If you are comfortable with selling to hobbyist, try posting them for sale! https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/forum/148-selling-forum-livestock/ You can make a bit of money to buy MORE TANKS! 🙂  
    • sdlTBfanUK
      It looks like you will have the full set of tests when you have the GH and KH as you have the PH and TDS already! You will want the full set if you get into shrimps but once up and running you won't need to check all of them very often! If you only order something small or one item from ProShrimp often the postage is free and stuff always arrives quickly, all my orders have arrived next day. Last time I checked, my tap water was PH 7.5, TDS 167, GH 4-5, KH 2-3 so almost ideal for cherry shrimp (maybe a touch higher GH, which would also increase TDS, with a bit of GH+). Be interesting to see what yours is as you are relatively close, I grew up around Maidstone. Simon
