Hi all,

 

I was taking a few shots of my Neos and noted a hole in this gals shell, it’s on both sides. Anyone seen this before? 

 

I rescaped this nano with ‘Pisces Sugar White’ aquarium sand, which has been leaching TDS and buffering the PH down. I have been using RO waste for my PWC’s. Should I be adding some coral to my HOB to buffer back up?

 

I was surprised to my params so acidic, although I had noted some TDS leach a few weeks back. 

Params: 

PH:~5

TDS :~450

KH:1

GH: 17

Acidic water does not do that.

Apparently it is a genetic defect. Cull it to the cull tank.

Don't let it breed.

 

On the pH, yes some coral chips for long term stability of pH.

Thanks mate. In she goes. Curious as to why she only started displaying this recently?

      Where do I get some?  When I google it, all that comes up is recipes for cooking shrimp and snow peas, and then on the shopping side what comes up is "Natto Shrimp Snow."  The Natto Shrimp Snow is brown pellets.  What I see in people's pictures here is white flakes.  Can someone tell me how to order it or what the proper name is so I can get the right thing?  Thank you!

      I LOVE the Velvet blue you have.  Beautiful specimen!

      It's my first time guys!  I got these as my first shrimp, they were berried within 2 days and I had to squeal this morning when I woke up to babies!  So far I count 13.  I had 2 berried females so I know there's more...  They are orange cherries 😄

      As helpful as pictures are I was wondering if there is a written description of the different colour varieties, much like what would be for say a show dog where desired criteria must be met in order for it to be grand champion worthy or pet quality. I ask because I am seeing many people selling "blue dreams" for example but there seems to be a great deal of difference with regards to darkness of the blue or clarity of the blue. And many of the sellers are either correctly claiming the shrimp are high grade or wrongly duping ( Not all but some and some could be doing it by accident too from not having a definitive accurate description to go by) new buyers who go on to breed said shrimp and sell on the offspring guessing they are high grade because they purchased high grade.
