Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Posting images of some of the shrimps I have kept.

Its very hard to get shrimps here and you can count how many shrimp keepers are there in our country smile.png

Please ignore some of the bad image qualities smile.png

Blue shrimp




Fire Red


My own prl line - which due to my mistake only is now no more. They stopped breeding and are now no more with me. But again will try this time with CBS smile.png


Cross of green and zebra babaulti








Indian Caridina white backed


Shadow Panda in 2012. We got them in India at around 2012, hand carried. Have just joined job and these things were so costly that I had sleepless nights those times. Sold them off after some days smile.png

Will be getting some soon


Tiger shrimp


Vampire Crab, built a paludrium for them. But lost interest after some days

      Hi ! 
      I live in Seattle where the water is incredibly soft and I have a tap water pH of 6.7, GH of 0-1 and KH 2. My existing tank with plants already has buffered substrate. Would I have better chance of keeping CRS than RCS with my current water parameters ? Or would RCS do okay?    I do have an RO system already, and I could  remineralize my water with salty shrimp KH/GH+. Which would allow my GH and KH parameter to be okay for neocaridinas, but I already have a tank with active substrate. I’m 100% I don’t have space to set up another tank with inert substrate.    Would do you recommend ? What are pH you have successfully kept neocaridinas and have them thriving ?    Thanks ! I appreciate all the help as I am new to the hobby.

      Hey guyz, im cycling a 30l tank to get some rcs in it. The tank is almost cycled and im thinking of getting them next week. 
      I have tested the water and the kH is at 9 and ph is 7 (i have yet to buy a gh test as i bought the jbl pack and didnt realise it does not include gh). I have read about parameter for neo carodina and they say that the hardier the water the better. But i have also read that the water can be too hard which will make it hard for them to molt.
      What would you recommend for the parameters ? And how much should i start as a basic colony?

      Hi all,

      Not sure which category this would fall under but,

      i am planning on doing an aquascape with seiryu/ryouh stone for CRS/CBS.
      I have read that these stones will raise pH levels.

      I have a tank already for FISH with seiryu/ryouh and the ph is 7.6+

      Should i be safe and avoid using these stones overall and just stick to driftwoods and mosses?


      Also, If it helps.. i will be using cal aqua labs substrate.

      Hi All,

      Have prepared a small write up regarding the requirement of trace elements for shrimps.

      Ulli Bauer have helped me a lot in finalizing it.

      Please go through the document once you have time.

      If any one have any valid points to add please let me know, I will add it into the document and acknowledgment will be given to you.

      The duckweed can certainly be a pain!  I think the trade-off is that it is doing a great job mopping up all the nutrients

      Always great to get an update! Good to see the ember tetras and shrimp are doing well still. That duckweed is vile stuff (looks ok when only a small bit in an aquarium) and so difficult to get rid of once in an aquarium and over runs so quickly?

      Some things will break down quicker than others, so leaves are usually blanched or cooked first so the shrimp can devour them easier, otherwise they may need a few days to soften a bit.

      Thank you!  Haha love it! Interesting my guys went nuts for the nasturtium leaf and flower and left the spinach! 😄  I have my own big organic veggie garden, so they have lots of different things to enjoy in it! I have broad beans, Brussels sprouts, peas and snow peas coming. I wonder if they would enjoy those? I also have broccoli, cauliflower, kale, Cabbage, rainbow chard, silverbeet, spinach etc. We also have 3 big organic mulberry trees (white and red) and we have a huge number of herbs too. When I saw the Rosemary flowers I wondered will they get purple or blue poop?! Haha! I also have a big strawberry tower. I heard of people feeding strawberry tops...I wonder if they'll eat the leaf? I know guinea pigs love strawberry leaves. It's now kinda become a big fun science experiment! Haha!  Haha I didn't want to say about blue poop but that's why I asked cause I want to see if they get a blue or purple poop chute! Haha! 🤣🤣🤣 It's funny, right now there is orange species of poop floating around the tank! 🤣🤣🤣
