Disciple's tiger tank


Disciple

Recommended Posts

I have recently rescaped my two footer which i started this wonderful hobby with almost a year ago. It started as a iwagumi scape with shrimp but quickly became a shrimp tank lol. Due to this I decide to redo the tank over the last couple of months.

Currently i have my Oebt colony, blue gene red rili culls and some chamleons. I will be dropping and posting the last of the rili's this weekend and bringing home some additional chamleon. 

Shout-outs to @Ronskitz for this awesome driftwood. @OzShrimp for some of the nice plants. @newbreed for the moss ledges really like them.

I plan on adding a few more plants and mosses but pretty happy with it now.

As always please feel free to give me pointers, advise and critique. 

Cheers.

Thanks Ineke

Yeah I am going to get some more us fissidens and tie it around some parts of the driftwood. Got some trident fern I purchased off a member ages ago that I want to tie on it too. Maybe some more lava rock to create more hiding places too.

Hey mate,

Just a curious question. How come your water is still cloudy and you already put in the shrimp?

I haven't received a PM in my inbox, I'm not sure if that's because I'm a new member or not?

I'm good but was really busy flying around recently.

Moving plant and not taking out the shrimp? That's a very risky move. :dizzy:

:innocent:In hindsight I should have removed all the shrimp. I didn't really think about it properly and did not expect how cloudy I would make the water. It is still a bit cloudy in there this morning.

Nice job D. The driftwood has some really nice shapes to it and I like the layout. The moss ledges look really good and now that I have seen yours I think I will be ordering some myself.

Your OEBT's are sensational, I really look forward to hitting you up for some when you have them breeding well enough. Nice photos too and I really like the 5th photo and the last photo of the OEBT really highlight the orange eyes. j

The orange eyes against the dark body looks awesome! Perhaps I'll get good at my shrimp keeping skills enough one day to keep these. :-)

My colony is finally starting to recover and grow. Many of the shrimplets have become juvies and young adults. Looking forward for them to start breeding.

Is it just me or do OEBT'S seem to grow slower and take longer to mature?

Anyways enjoy the pictures. Currently NFS.

If you want some people when i was buying people were selling mid grade ones for 50 to 100 for each juvie

Also mid grade pairs were going for 200 to 300.

I am sure there are sellers out there.

My personal favourite tank.

It is also going through a population boom haha. Last count 8 berried females there maybe be a few more. I cant wait to see all the shrimplets.

Getting closer to the mega colony goal.

      I have just done the planned weekly maintenance and 10% water change and everything 'seems' to be going very well, I saw 12 blue and 9 panda shrimps so am very happy about that as there are always some hiding (and they are small) so there must be more than that at this point. Early days yet (especially with the off parameters) with the blues only been in the tank for a week and the pandas for 2 weeks. Not seen any dead ones yet and the shrimp seem happy enough and beautiful colour and pattern, all small so must be young! Parameters were TDS 159, GH 7-8, KH 1-2, PH 7 yesterday so still a bit off the usual ideal! Hopefully these figures come down slowly in time, I used pure RO water for the water change so Tds should drop 10. I will get a different PH test kit with a narrower range/increments as the one I have measures in .5 increments over a wide range which is probably a bit much. I bought these shrimp because the sellers parameters (PH 6.8) were the closest to mine so hopefully it will work out long term. I changed my zerowater filter as well, as the old one was measuring TDS 6 so passed its best. I will definitely overnight drip acclimate shrimp in the future, not that I plan any more in the forseeable future. I will add/edit photo when available, hopefully later today.

      All done now, I drip acclimated 11 blue bolts and 6 blue steel overnight and they are now in the tank so now is just wait and see if this works. 28 shrimps have now been put in and I have yet to SEE a dead one so fingers crossed! A couple of pictures of some below; I don't plan on buying any more shrimp so plan this to be a blue shrimp tank, though if it doesn't work out I have seen some female bettas I would like, but hopefully the shrimps will work out. The water parameters are still the same as before, so a bit off! I need to sort out what foods and shrimp stuff I have in the drawers and cupboard tomorrow as it's been a while, hopefully I find a shrimp lolly so I can give them one/part of those tomorrow, and it may bring as many of the shrimps out as possible.  Fingers crossed everyone...........
