Hi guys, here is a video of my 30 litres dennerli tank which has been running for 2.5 years now.

Started a new bigger tank for them so they will have more space .

Awesome sight, don't often get to see so many in one tank. Love their little " white gloves" waving away.

Thanks Ineke.

Even in large numbers they are still shy, I usually only see 30 or 40 at a time unless I put food and I sit down and wait for a bit like I did when I took the video.

I had 6 in a 10 gallon tank but my numbers are dwindling slowly. What kind of food do yours like?

I give them the same food as my other shrimps as long as the food is soft enough.

With the number of shrimp you have there is not point trying to feed them, they will more than likely not touch the food.

@NoGi I think to be successful with sulawesi shrimps you need to do do 20-30 % water changes a week. Due to the high Ph and water temperature, the bacterial count in the water is higher than in the bee tanks, so they are more likely to suffer from bacterial infections.

      The filters (with the bacteria) etc would still be running in the old tank happily with the shrimp and the old substrate as it had been? Could some dirty water (with sponge squeezed in to it) be used in the bucket? The instructions for the JBL soil I am using is: Use: 
      Rinse the substrate briefly under tap water to wash away any abrasion caused in transport. To avoid accumulation of minerals in the water, carry out a 50 % water change every 2 to 3 days in the first two weeks after filling. It isn't actually anything I need to do soon so don't want to waste too much of your time, but it would be much easier to have a bucket in the bathroom with the soil for a couple of weeks etc if you need to keep doing water changes every few days until the soil has settled down, ie the (above mentioned) mineral build up cleared and/or some soils I believe have an ammonia spike (doesn't this mean the soil must contain ammonia) etc early on so would that still happen in the bucket without filters and heater etc? JayC don't waste too much time on this (I appreciate your time) as I expect I am just not experienced enough to understand! Simon

      After more observation, i can confirm that they react less to my presence in the tank than both neocaridinas and caridinas babaulti; i have not performed testing for "out of the tank" visual stimulation.

      No ammonia source to keep the bacteria alive. You could put fish in it, but then that's just another tank!

      So are all the pipes in our plumbing. Yet tap water can be used.

      I know this is a bit out of date as a topic, but I have been wondering for some time about this. Can you just put new substrate in a large bucket with dechlorinated water (no heater or filter or anything else) and let it do its thing, cycle, ammonia spike etc, change the water weekly (or when an ammonia spike happens). Then put it in the shrimp tank setup afterwards so as not to 'risk' the shrimp or have to set up another tank to transfer the shrimp too etc. I'm sure there must be a reason why you can't just do this as it sounds way too simple, so wouldn't everyone do it??   Simon
