Spot a shrimp - win a prize

First person to identify where the zebra shrimp (Caridina zebra) is in this picture gets their choice of a prize from me.

The fine print:

As the prize, I have on offer a dark blue cherry from choc parents, as many riffles as you would like (within reason), some mosses including the relatively rare mini bolbitis, a 'rare' fern collected whilst I was in Cairns, driftwood pieces, and possibly some other things if you aren't interested in any of these. Please note for members located in WA and TAS, there may be state rules preventing me from sending you plants and/or shrimp, but we will discuss options if a member from those states wins. Open to any of the other mods as well because only I know where the shrimp is.

Sorry international members - this comp is open to Australian based members only.

All you need to do is copy the pic above, use paint or another program to draw a circle around the shrimp and re-post the picture here in this thread. First person who does so gets the prize.

Right hand side 

Wedged between the massive rock and the little rock ??? 

Would you mind uploading the pic with the area circled? Not sure exactly where you mean.

You have good eyes Fishmosy. I don't think I could have seen it unless its easier to see in person.

I saw it in person, took the photo, looked at the photo - thought "Where the hell is the shrimp?". Retook another photo, looked at the photo - thought "Where the hell is the shrimp?". After 30 seconds of flicking between real life and the photo, I was able to work out where it was. It's actually kind of obvious once you know where it is.

As @‌grubs pointed out in Fishmosy's Zebra Biotope Mark II - the zebs are actually pretty camouflage with their black and white stripes which seem so obvious (to us) at first.

Its on the white rock just to the left of the ridge in the stone aginst the bigger granite rock. About two inches from where it was circled. Its tail goes back towards the larger stone

All good. Just trying to work out how your pic fits in with mine. Did you zoom in really far? If so, that isn't needed. Should be able to spot it from the original pic without zoom, but zoom may help you to focus on a specfic area.

      I don't know if bacteria is the cause.  It seems to be an uncommonly diagnosed problem because most shrimp articles only talk about bacteria infection as "a few shrimp die every day / week"  What can I say, a standard dose of minocycline and erythromycin didn't work to stop it, so not sure if oxytetracycline will work.
    • jayc
      Ah yes. That was the injectable form of oxytetracycline. Each mL of the injectable form contains: 100 mg oxytetracycline HCl, 5.75% w/v magnesium chloride , 6 H2O, 17% v/v water for injection, 1.3% w/v sodium formaldehyde Sulfoxylate as a preservative and q.s. with propylene glycol. Basically, it has additional compositions in it. 1000mg might have been the dose recommended for the injectable oxytetracycline, but if you have the powder form then follow the dosing rates as recommended on your bottle. Hope that clears it up a bit.     As for doxycycline and it's use to treat short antenna ... I cannot comment on whether it will be more effective than oxytetracycline or not. But if you do use it, only try one at a time. Is bacteria even been proven to be the cause of "short antenna disease"?

      14 April 2015 -  Update based on experiences of one of our SKF members. Unfortunately for this shrimpkeeper it was too late to save these shrimps, but hopefully this experience will help someone else. 250+ shrimp were lost before the bacterial infection was halted.   A vet was consulted and he eventually ended up contacting a senior lecturer of aquatic animal health at University of Adelaide school of veterinary science. He stated that bacterial infections being internal or external are almost always gram negative in aquatics and recommended using oxytetracycline at a dose rate of 1000-2000mg per 40ltr of water.   Dosing method: Oxytetracycline is available in 2 forms. Powder and injectable. The injectable form was used as it is a stronger form. This meant that we could use less to obtain the required dosage.   Dosed straight into the water column at 1000mg per 40ltr of water.

      What?! Can you point me to where you saw that please?   If in doubt, Always follow the directions on the bottle.

      What is the recommended dosing for oxytetracycline?  The sticky thread has a mention of " 1000mg per 40ltr ", but I don't know if that refers to total amount of powder, or active ingredient percentage. I live in USA, where oxytetracycline is not as common, but I was able to obtain a bottle of powder.  On the bottle, it says [calculated out to] 75 mg / 10 gal, which is a wayyyy lower value.  Also, the manufacturer / distributor won't tell me the fraction of the power that is active ingredient vs filler. This is for a Taiwan Bee shrimp tank with pH 5.5 and Gh 5, in case that matters for the effectiveness of oxytet in these parameters. I also have doxycycline available if that is equivalent / better. It's to treat that "short antenna disease" in one of my tanks that seems to show up once every few months. I've already dosed with Maracyn 1 (erythromycin) and 2 (minocycline) and they didn't seem to work.
