More and more people are keeping them. They are becoming a lot more affordable too. There are even rumors of people breeding them in tap water and cherry like parameters. So maybe in another few months they will go from the 100 ea to 50 ea.

I need another tank!

Don't worry @jayc I'm in the same boat :crying: 

@Disciple They are differently getting cheaper and more readily available. Apart from cost, its the temp require or around 28 that holding me back. But if like you say, if their breeding in tap water (don't know why you would risk it) that would be a good thing

Temperatures in Australia makes it easier and cheaper to keep a tank warm, than it is to chill it. A heater is so much easier and cheaper to buy than a chiller.

 

Let me know when anyone has a pair for sale @ $50 ea.

I have an empty tank waiting to be filled.

You are probably starting to see more as it's getting into Summer and breeders are prepared to ship them rather than ship in winter and risk DOA. More should equate to cheaper one would think.

Well these guys are 6+ generation tank bred here in aus.

I have found they guys pretty easy to keep as long as wp are all good like any shrimp.

My water parameters for these guys are-

ph 8.2

tds 200

temp 28.5

They live in a 45cm cube,with 3cm coral sand base,2cm crushed scorpion on top and some lava rock features,running a 1000ltr canister filter,double sponge and heater/chiller..algae growth for them to graze is most important.

      Thank you both so much for your responses, I think you covered everything I needed to hear. I really appreciate your help! I have a tank cycling as we speak. Unfortunately what I had available to be was the Fluval Spectrum substrate that was leftover from my planted tank. From what I’ve read, I’ll have to replace this and when I do, I’ll get ADA Aquasoil. 
    • Zoidburg
      Mainly what ineke said.    If your tank isn't already set up for Crystals, then it's recommended to get a new tank, get a good buffering substrate that lowers the pH (I don't recommend Fluval) and then allow it to cycle for 3-6 weeks. It can take a while to cycle, and that's okay. The bacteria prefer a higher pH but a tank with low pH will still cycle. You can put a heater in the tank and set it to about 84° to encourage the bacteria growth. Make sure you use RO water or distilled in the tank and remineralize with GH minerals. Not sure best GH for a Neo/Carid tank, but maybe around 5-6?   Once the tank is cycled, do a full water change and then you can drip acclimate the crystals (and Neos - if you only want one tank) into the new tank. If the Neo tank has widely different water parameters (pH, TDS, GH, KH...) compared to the Crystal tank, then drip acclimating may take a while.   It's hard to say how well the crystals will do in your Neo tank without knowing what parameters they were raised in, the parameters of your Neo tank, and other details. They generally do breed better and live longer in lower pH with lower GH parameters. Not only that, but color is usually improved, too, in lower pH.

      Hi Macks -you can successfully keep the two types together but you should keep your water parameters at CRS requirements. The Neos will adapt quite easily- they might slow down breeding initially but generally pick up very quickly. The CRS will not thrive in Neo WP's -they might survive but generally it's not recommended. I have posted about this recently on another thread but will show my  mixed tank .

      Hi guys! So, I just got a small batch of crystal red shrimp to join my blue rilli and orange rilli. I’ve been looking stuff up online and getting pretty confused about water parameters... It seems like most resources are saying that Neocaridina need calcium, but then CRS should have really soft water. Does this mean that CRS should be kept with CRS only? Any input would be super helpful, I’m pretty new to keeping shrimp. Thanks!

      Great news. Hope it continues! What sort of tank do you have? How many Litres? What substrate? Anything else in the tank? Filter? Heater? How many shrimps do you have? What water do you use? Do you use dechlorinator? What do you feed them? Tell us some more??? I think they moult when you change some/all water and PH 7.6 should be ok for rili shrimp, so follow Zoidburg advice and don't try and alter it with the Ph down any more! Simon
