Hey Bob, keeps them in a job - they have to work just like the rest of us! 

Not 100% but I think we just had the wrong name on it all these years, not that they changed it. This was the first time I've remembered to us the new name - I still just call it micranthemoides like you do.

      So I currently have a 6 gallon planted tank that has been set up and running for 3 weeks. Im about to purchase my red cherry shrimp to put in this tank. There is plenty of algae in the tank for them to eat, so food should be fine for the beginning correct? Plus it is heavily planted meaning there is plenty of organic matter to be consumed at all times, so they shouldn't really need to be fed ever? Also i see that drip acclimation is best for getting them used to there new home. If i did this till the tank is half empty for provided them with as close conditions as possible without emptying the tank. Am i good to just refill the tank afterward or from now on when i do water changes do they all need to be dripped in? Also is it true that adding calcium to the tank is beneficial for the shrimp to molt?
      Im a pretty experienced fish keeper, just haven't ever had with shrimp so I dont want to kill all these expensive shrimps due to lack on knowledge. Any more knowledge or advice that can be given to me is high encouraged, even if it seems simple. 
      Some specs of the tank, tanks does have a filter, that has small openings that could suck up baby shrimp. Its a small filter and has algae growth on the openings so it really does reduce the flow a bit, where i dont see it becoming a  huge issue. The tank is co2 injected, but thats pretty nailed down so nuking them with co2 is highly unlikely. The tank has a soil bottom capped with coarse sand. The vast majority of the bottom of the tank is carpeted with plants but they still have a way to go. There is no lid on the top of the tank. The tank does have some natural river stones in it with the brown algae growth on them. And a lot of the plants have the white "bugger" algae growing on them or around them. The tank receives about 10 hours of light a day. I know i put a lot of un-important information here, but maybe a pro will see a problem here and be able to inform me so I can correct it. Thanks for your time and consideration in advance!!!!

      I took some inspiration from @Disciple 's tank and bought some moss ledges. I do not put any stainless steel in my tanks at all as I am concerned about chromium, nickel and manganese ions seeping out of it in a vat of freefloating ions that we call tanks...I found metal-free 3D-printed plant ledges at www.aquakitz.com.au for $4 each ( Elevate Shrimp brand). They come in a printed resin that does not smell of plastic at all and is stable in water. I am extremely impressed with the large, robust, super-grippy suction cups- I do not think I have ever come across better ones. Will highly recommend to anyone looking for moss ledges.

      Hey everyone,
      I noticed this the other day on my RCS, a little white grain that was stuck on its head. 
      Does anybody know what this is?
      cheers!

      Hello all
      I have a small setup ( for now :) , 2 x 60L both with internal filter system
      In one i keep PRL , benibachi x hakata , not the most beautifull ones in the beginning
      but it seems to be getting allot better lately
      The other tank is a ''mixed tank '' containing the following :
      MALE :
      2x Zebra pinto black
      1x crystal white
      2x Ebi Tengi Tangerine Tigers (golden)
      3x Spotted Head Red
      FEMALE:
      1x (shadow)Red Taitibee
      1x PRL SS
      1x PRL SSS
      In this mixed tank i now discovered the following fry / baby shrimp
      Soil is akadama 1-4 mm


       


       


       




       
       
      Can someone help me with naming these hybrids ?
      And what do you think , is it worth it to select these patterns for further breeding ?
      Thanks allot !

      I have been having some trouble with my water parameters after over dosing on a product a few months ago.
      I have slowly been working on my wp and have finally got them close to where I want them in my tanks, I just need some help to get it even closer to where I want it.
      Tank 1's Wp is ph 6.6 gh6 kh1 Ca40 and the TDS is 170~ Currently the MG:Ca ratio is 2.79 - This is my divided tank holding PRL BB and Pintos
      Tank 2's WP is Ph7.2 gh11 kh3 Ca60 and the TDS is 215~ Currently the MG:Ca ratio is 1.29 - This is my OEBT tank
      Ideally I want tank 1 to be gh5 kh1 and Mg:Ca ratio 3.5 - I was thinking to do this is to add pure RO water to lower the tds some more then add more GH until the ratio is where I want it. My question is there a better way to get this ratio and what do i use to raise gh?
      Ideally I want tank 2 to be gh 7-8 and kh 3-4 with the Mg:Ca around 3.5. This is the tank that  had the most issues and I lost quite a lot of OEBTs at one stage. I think I have got the WP at a stage where they are surviving and breeding again but I would like to get it a little better for them. I just need some help/instruction to get it there properly. 
      I know in both tanks I need to increase the Mg but I dont want the overall Gh to increase or the TDS. I am also not sure the correct product to buy to increase the mg safely. What I have been doing is add RO remineralised with Salty shrimp at a lower tds then what the tank was every water change to slowly bring my tds down. 
      Any advise or guidance will be much appreciated. I think Tank 1 would be ok where it is atm but I would really like to get tank 2 closer to ideal if possible.
      Thanks.

      Yeah, that would be about the max I would put into a tank that size. 
    • Crabby
      Yeah, mellis are extremely rare from what I've heard. Only seen them once on gumtree, but sold out by the time I enquired. Apparently some people have them from ANGFA meetings, and otherwise you can barely find them in the hobby.  Any idea whether I could fit 10 of any in a 5 gal?
    • jayc
      I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. They are all so nice.  As you said, signifer is easier to find. Don't know of any store selling mellis.

      Okay, the native tank is finally happening. Not at the fishroom, but as part of my new rack. I wanna do DRN, Chameleons, and maybe DAE. I really want to use some pseudomugils though, but I can't decide which variety. I'm thinking my options are signifer, gertrudae, mellis and tenellus. Leaning towards signifer because they're easy to find, small, cheap, and the closest out of all to Vic. I would really really love to do mellis though, if someone can direct me to a source? Would mean so much to me to breed an endangered species that I adore. How many pseudomugils could I fit in the tank though? It's a 5 gal I think, dimensions are 40x23x25 (LxWxH). I was told by a signifer breeder I could fit 10 signifer into it. Tenellus would be less of course, as they are larger. Plants are bacopa monnieri and vallisneria nana (locally collected), val triptera, glosso, and maybe a flowering plant like nyphoides spongiosa.  Planning to use a natural rock/pebble substrate with some sand mixed in. Probably will use some rock hardscape, will collect those from the yarra, and have a piece of driftwood I plan to use already. Just wondering about those fish. And @Dave, when do you plan on shipping plants, shrimp and fish again? As I was probably gonna buy most of the stuff from you guys at AquaGreen.

      yup, I read this thread before posting.  I figure there must be at least two traits that are passed on to make these patterns, but don't know what they are.
