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

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

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

      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?

      Thanks,

      Kevin.
       
      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.

      Great idea! Please document your journey here. I have no experience with marine shrimps, so cannot help you. But what you have listed above seems like a sound plan to get started.   
    • sdlTBfanUK
      That sounds like a fun project and look forward to hearing how it goes!  Hopefully someone will have some useful advice/tips etc?

      I have an idea. And considering I’m terrible at being concise, I’m sure it’s gonna take me a while to explain it.   Essentially, I want to do a nano marine rockpool tank, with just crustaceans and molluscs (and perhaps a seastar or two). And I really don’t know how plausible it is, but I’m pretty intent on finding out. I don’t know if anyone here has any experience with marine shrimp, but I figured I may as well see if any of the Aussies here are familiar with the shrimp I want to keep. So this species of shrimp is actually the species that got me into the hobby! I found them on a camping trip, and they were just so active and engaging, and I just fell in love. Then I went home, did a bunch of research, and got an aquarium. They’re part of the reason why I’m so interested in shrimp. Now I’m on holidays again (in a different place in Vic) and they’re everywhere in the tide pools. Millions. The species is ‘palaemon serenus’, the red-handed shrimp, and they grow to about 6cm for big females (which I discovered last night) and I think 3-4 for males. Just from observation. They live primarily in colonies of 10-30 under rocks during the day, venturing out when they feel safe, and going everywhere once it gets dark. They’re omnivorous, eating pretty much everything they can get their little claws on (including my fingers and toes). They look rather like freshwater macrobrachium, to be honest. I’ve had a look and it’s legal to collect from this location. There aren’t limits on anything I want to collect. So, I’m thinking I’d do a 20 litre tank for the meantime (until I can get some awesome 30ish litre low-boy tank). I’ve got one at home that could be set up as soon as I’m back. If I take home a big rock and sand, then I should have beneficial bacteria sorted, as well as a food source. The rock would have plants and a bit of algae and all the other good stuff you find on the rocks they like. Other than using salt for water changes, I’d run the tank like a freshwater tank - sponge filter for filtration, freshwater light, no heater, fortnightly or monthly water changes. I’d love to add a couple little fish if I can catch them, but I have no idea how to identify whether they’ll grow or not. Same deal with the majority of crabs (although I have ID’d a few species that would work). And unfortunately no nudibranch either… although I found the CUTEST little one last night. They’re apparently super specialist in terms of diet, and I don’t have the time to observe one for hours to see what it eats, ID it, work out how to cultivate it, and all that. So, that’s the plan. I would love any advice, recommendations, or criticisms you have. I understand there’s a good chance this could be too ambitious, and the well-being of the animals is number 1 priority, so if it sounds like it’s a bad idea then I’ll just scrap it. But I’m pretty keen on finding out a way to make this work.

      I have had fungus each time I set up a new tank, but it has always just disappered on its own after a month or two, and has been varied in appearance each time!

      Had a go searching / feeling throught the substrate for the tabs but no luck.  They might have dissolved or become soggy so I can't  feel them.  I have a bucket sample of substrate brewing at the moment for a 24 hour test and its already steadily rising the TDS.   Looks like a just wait and see...... Thanks for all the help as ususal it is appreciated.  Dirk
