      Inspired by @fishmosy spot a shrimp competition and @perplex generosity of giving away his prize. I have decided to hold a membership Powerball Raffle for all our members.
      How it will work is everyone is free to pick a number between 1 and 45 (for now it will be one each). On the 1st October 2015 there will be a Powerball lotto draw and If someone picks the powerball number I will pay for a platinum membership on their behalf. If two people pick the same number the person that picked it first is the one that gets it.
      Good luck.

      Indeed a good video. Except for his spelling of Desolved in TDS (should be Dissolved) I could not have done any better.

      Yes of course! Forgot about high Nitrates, and of course illness. But we probably need to clarify "low temps" for anyone new to the hobby. Winter months can see water temps fall below the shrimp's preferred temp range. It might not be detrimental to their health but it does slow their metabolism down. The remedy for low temps isn't to just give them high temps either, it needs to be within their ideal preferred range for that specific shrimp, eg Neo Caridina or Caridina or Sulawesi. I have known some people to have shrimp (cherries) survive our Australian winter out in ponds. So they can tolerate fairly low temps for an extended period.

      This is a very good video on the basics if you are new to shrimps. It is called 'How to breed shrimp', not sure why as it is generally everything and a very good  and clear video guide?.

      I find the wrong water parameters for the type of shrimp to be a big factor for lethargic shrimp. It's usually the first sign that something is not right. Any measurable amount of Ammonia, can also cause this behaviour.  Moulting is also a big factor in shrimps being inactive. Right before and right after the moult they hide and usually don't move. The moulting process is very strenuous on the shrimp, and I find protein rich foods (eg bloodworms) helps a ton.
