The first championship was great fun. There was a lot of back-end work done by the SCV committee and entrants but for everyone else there was just a great display of shrimp to view and photograph. 2016 will be way bigger and better because prospective entrants know what to expect this time - and that will inevitably mean more entries. 

The IBC show means that some exceptional quality splendens forms and beautiful, rare species Bettas were on display. The further inclusion of an aquascaping competition for 2016 can't hurt at all. Also remember that there's opportunity to purchase some of the show stock at the end of the day.

Everyone's pretty much summed it up.

Everyone is welcome to enter, although there are limits if your not an aquarium society of vic member (can become a member which is always greatly appreciated)

We hope to see lots of new entrants this year.

Main things to know will be show details when announced, when entry forms are due, and when entries need to be benched in/sent to show chair

Hi guys,

Is the Shrimp Championship 2016 event still going ahead? Is there perhaps info on venue/city, start, duration and end times for people wanting to make arrangements to perhaps attend from interstate?

It would be really great if someone from SKF could go along and cover it and then put up a nice thread on the entrants/winners etc and the process throughout the day.... ?. I'm sure there are alot of members who won't be able to attend the actual show but would love a run down of the proceedings.

I would love to attend. I have emailed the Victoria shrimp club and not received any response so I am assuming it is Dead in the Water. If anyone is organising this, I would like to volunteer my services with registration or with wherever they need assistance as I am assuming that sponsors are not exactly falling over their feet for such a niche National event. I will also put my hand up for sponsoring a small prize.

If anyone is considering entering shrimp, the cut off to register is this Sunday. ?

Interstate postal entries accepted, and shrimp entered can be auctioned on the day if you do not want them shipped back.

For those who can attend on the day, there will be some stunning shrimp on auction, sensational sponsor special offers (lol), and just generally a great opportunity to catch up with other shrimp folk.

Look forward to seeing some of you on the day!! ?

Sounds like we have a few SKF members attending on Sunday 17th and a few interstaters on their way across/over/down for the event. 

Look forward to seeing you all there. 

Will make sure there's photos and hopefully even vids of the event to post. ?

      Great shot of Big Mama!  I reckon, 1 week tops for hatching.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      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.
    • d3ss3n
      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.   
    • sdlTBfanUK
      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?
