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

      ✌️   Absolutely only use bleach as the last resort, with nothing in the tank. (6parts water to 1part bleach for future reference). Even white vinegar is safer and probably just as effective for removal of planaria and worms. After you clear the old tank of gravel, give the glass a quick wipe with a vinegar soaked kitchen paper towel. Rinse and let dry in the sun. Use vinegar if that wasn't clear.   Set up the new tank as desired. If your other tanks are free of pests, you can use the filter media to seed this new tank. Wash the filter media in the water of the new tank. Yes, it will be dirty for a while, but you will have seeded it with millions of beneficial bacteria and probably cycle the new tank in a week.   PRL, real PRL, are pretty rare in Aus.  They will demand a high price for them, so check the legitimacy of the PRL. Find out the PRL history. Nice looking CRS is not the same as PRL.

      Thanks. Think I'm going to order from Pro Shrimp, get 5 cheeries and 3 amano, just to play it safe.

      Dang I thought u might say that... for some reason the guy at my rlfs (relatively local fish store) recommended them instead of honey gouramis as a bit of a feature fish. Are there any other ‘feature fish’ style fish that wouldn’t munch on my shrimp, or should I just have my endler trio? I’ll check out the page.

      Hi Simon,  Thanks for the warm welcome! I've been using the GenChem No Planaria; honestly it worked so well the first time and most of the snail population/worms all disappeared and i tried to remove most of the larger rotting worms but didn't have a single casualty, they were Neocaridinas and i guess they were much hardier. But i did notice the packet wasn't sealed properly when I went back to use it a few months later. I haven't seen the SLAqua Z1 available in Australia before.  I used to own a marine aquarium previously with fish only; then i changed after a few years to a planted aquarium with CO2 and then to a smaller set up with shrimp. Currently have three tanks (2 foot with RC Shrimp, 1 foot cube with BB and another 1 foot cube with CBS); I've never had to really restart a tank but would rather consult SKF then have a crack at it myself. I wasn't use if using bleach to rid of all the hitch hikers was the right method. And i have no idea what ratio of bleach to water I should be using for a 27L cube. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!  Yeah i think RO water at stage 6 would be a bit over kill; especially with the time it takes to make the water. Thanks for that. I've got about 40-50 with about 10 as breeding adults and the rest as juveniles still; I'm not a picky person when it comes to culling; I'm enjoying the hobby not as breeder to sell to others. I'd figure it would be good fun to pass the time, water changes and watching the little fellas shrimp around picking and prodding at things. Also i have no idea about the F1, cross breeding, taibees, taitibees, etc. just more interested in seeing the differing colors.  I set up the CBS and BB tanks at the same time which also sit next to each other; the CBS population has exploded to about 100+ shrimp where the BB is a bit slower. Is that quite common; are BB more fragile? I thought about trying to have a got at PRL. Any advice? Cheers, Dan Hey jayc, Thanks for that; phew lucky i bought a spare way nack. Yeha i have lots of denitrate left over. Also hello fellow Sydney-Sider! Dan

      There are so many varieties of food you can be feeding them. Have a read of this Food & Nutrition section for more ideas. Leaves, flowers, vege scraps. Frozen bloodworms. Bee Pollen.
