Limited Access

You will have noticed that upon joining that your access is limited and there are quite a number of forums features you can't access. Your first 3 posts are held in a moderation queue before being published. After your 3rd approved post, this restriction is removed. We do this to help keep the SPAMMERs out.

A quick way in which to start your post count is to take the time to introduce yourself and tell everyone a little about what shrimp you keep, how many tanks you have, etc...

Other features such as the classifieds and chatroom are only available to subscribing members of the community.

      My experience today with acclimating new shrimp shows me we need to watch them closely during the process. I received my shipment of Red Cherry Shrimp (Neocaridina davidi) and immediately started slowly dripping a little of my stable and tested aquarium water into a glass bowl with the opened bag of shrimp and shipping water. They were all very active on arrival and the first half hour of periodic dripping, then they got very sluggish, lying in the bottom like they were dying. My aquarium nitrates and nitrites were close to 0, but I didn't check the water in the bag first. I used a test strip on the mixed water and found the nitrates had suddenly climbed to the 40-60 range.  I hadn't finished acclimating them yet, but with nothing to lose I scooped up the shrimp and put them immediately in my tank. They took a few minutes to recover, but soon they were happily swimming in my tank and seem to be fine. If anyone knows what could have happened between happy shrimp in the shipping bag to a fast nitrate climb while adding good water, I'd love to know....

      parameters are too low gh/kh for neos. need to bump them up some. you should also be using gh/kh products not just gh.   Also I'd avoid bacter ae too many bad experiences with it, its over priced. many better products out there for way less $.
