Hey folks! This thread is intended as a documentation (and space to ask questions of course) of @Frosty and my venture into caridina shrimp. We’re starting off this weekend with 15-20 mischling shrimp (tibee x CBS), and maybe in a couple months if everything is going well we can add some TTS or KK or pandas or something. The tank is a 4ft, with inert gravel and rocks, lots of moss, Java fern (crested and regular) and assorted crypts, and a couple big pieces of driftwood. Current parameters are the following (please advise us if you think we should fix anything): 22°, 6.8 pH (we might try ageing our water change water with peat moss, so with a couple water changes we’ll bring this down to 6.4-6.6), 3GH, 2KH, and 0 nitrates, nitrites and ammonia. We’re thinking maybe to make it more interesting to the average onlooker, we might add a small school of chilli rasboras, but that’s hopefully going to be it for fish. The tank is in direct sunlight, so there’s a possibility we’ll need ottos at some stage. I’ll update later with photos and our plans. Please let me know if you’ve got any advice! Cheers!
I found this little guy in my F8 Golden Mischling tank. He is all yellow with yellow/orange eyes. It's possible that there was some Tibee breeding in his background as his parents came from a mixed tank. Not quite sure what to do with him just yet- use him with the TBM's or use him with the Tibees. If I'm right and it is male then I guess I can put him with a Tibee female anyway. Also a picture of a Red Tibee getting bigger now and another of a tiny KK -could be Tibee KK or TBMM and a Bluebolt TBMM. I'm pretty happy with these guys as they are all from F8 to F8 Mischlings- or F8 Mischling to F4 Tibee
