  3. I have a question, I have some new Murray river long arm shrimp, does anyone have any experience about keeping these guys in a tank with fish? What sized fish will they try and eat? (Or better yet successful catch) I also have a new bristlenose pleco in the tank, they're a little slower and placid, will they eat him?

    Aquamaxx 17.1 Gallon Caridina Tank Build

    Great photo, and great to hear that this tank is still going 'OK' for now, hopefully with time it may just settle down on its own? I don't know the answers to your questions but I am eager (as I am sure you are as well) to see what happens next and what the babies look like! Simon

    Aquamaxx 17.1 Gallon Caridina Tank Build

    Two berried tigers! 3/5 of the tigers are females, so it’s very likely that they bred with a black or red crystal. I don’t actually know what this means or what the mischlings will be? Will the only carry the tiger gene while producing crystals and tigers, or will the babies show fancy tigers markings? Also, what determines how many eggs a female produces? One tiger has CONSIDERABLY more eggs. The on in this picture has about half as many eggs as the other...

    Waterbox 10 Gallon Neocaradina Tank

    Very happy! Ugh, that tank. I can’t win with that tank, the fix didn’t last. But all are acting healthy. The ones with whatever the issue is seem to be losing white pigment? They are turning clear. However, it’s still only the red crystals as the black crystals and tigers show no symptoms. I do have two berried Tigers in the tank, so I am excited to see what I get( I’m adding pics to that thread now)

    Oh wow, as you say they certainly are tiny! You must be so happy? How is it going with the other (Caridina) tank? Simon

    Waterbox 10 Gallon Neocaradina Tank

    I’m sorry to hear about the trouble, seeing our tanks have issues is always hard. I hope your back on the upswing now! unfortunately, I don’t have a good camera for shots this small, but I did my best. I was able to count 23 last night during lights off with a small penlight. I’m sure they are many, many more!

    Waterbox 10 Gallon Neocaradina Tank

    Don't I feel a fool letting it happen again. I have ut one of those strip thermometers on the tank now (they are actually quite accurate by the looks) and it is a tank close to where I usually am and the new heater has the flashing temperature on the heater so it is very unlikely to happen again. The shrimps seem fine (bloody mary) and yesterday I saw all the Ember tetras and 1 neon tetra so I only lost a few neon tetras by the looks of it, so it isn't as bad as I first thought? I shall look into the temperature controllers now though! They don't seem to sell them from my usual seller but I may ask him to consider getting some, he sells everything else! Simon

    Pics!! Please? Oh no, not again! when are you going to invest in that temperature controller thing I recommended? It's piece of mind if not anything else.

    Waterbox 10 Gallon Neocaradina Tank

    Fantastic news and you must be so happy, long may it last and you must have got it all sorted! I had another heater disaster 2 days ago, stuck on and temperature got to about 32, it was my oldest tank and the bloody mary shrimps seem to be none the worse but I lost almost all the tetras, and those few that survived aren't acting usual, d'oh! New heater in place and it has a flashing light that shows the temperature so that shouldn't happen again in the future, hopefully/theory anyway! Simon

    I have one of these also, except it's empty, sitting down the side of the house collecting dirt, dust and rain when we actually have some. Was a good shrimp tank to have.

    Afternoon everyone, Stumbled across this forum while searching for information on CRS. Currently have a 27L aquarium with a breeding group of Cherry Red Shrimp, x 3 Nerite snails and x2 Amano shrimp. Looking forward to gaining new knowledge from more experienced shrimp keepers. Cheers
