Is it possible to change my user to sdlTBfanUK so people will know I am in the UK, also the country field doesn't show up on my profile so I can't enter that???

I am new to 'forums' (don't use facebook or anything similar) so apologise for having to ask this. I don't know where to post an article about me and my use of Tap water with Taiwan bee shrimps as after many years of no success I seem to have cracked it as it has been working for a year now! I am in the UK and using a filter jug of american origin (zerowater, not sure if it is available in Australia) but I have seen a good few posts about RO water and this is an alternative. There is a lot to it and I don't want to get too into it until I prepare the actual article (it may end up rather big?), but could you give me an idea where to put it etc, I assume under 'shrimp keepers forum' and what do you think I should TAG it as. In it I will give a little about me (only what is relevant), brief details of my past failures, and the new setup/transfer etc and hopefully a couple of pictures.

Again, I apologise for having to ask what you probably think are silly questions but I am a 'forum virgin' and think there will be many people interested maybe trying the same way to use tap water etc?

The country field might be locked but the city field isn't.

 You can use it to include the country.

eg.

" Hastings, UK."

I am trying to change the city field and the country field but it won't let me do either, it just says * field is required against country and city, even though there is no country BOX??????????????

Sorry to be a nuisance as I am sure you have better things to do!

@Cesar, this is one for you.

Please check out what is wrong with the City/Country fields in the profile section.

Thanks

@sdlTBfan try completing your profile with country, it should work now...

@jayc it seems that the board software changed with the upgrade, I believe it is sorted out now.

      No, because you would never be able to clean it out.

      I don't think most people measure GH or KH in parts per million, I think your results would be KH 0-1 and GH 3-4. You don't need to remember the colour the drops should change too, as, as you say the colour in the test tube should match the original drops colour to get your reading. You may need to get some GH/KH+ for cherry/neocaridina shrimp, as your results are nearer caridina shrimp parameters. Cherry shrimp though are a lot tougher than bee shrimps so they may even survive in the parameters you have but not do as well? Anyway, if you are still cycling you can come back to that nearer the time that is done. The best shrimps to get are juveniles as you know you will have them longer (you can't tell how old an adult is) and they are better suited to adapting to new water parameters etc. You may find the below video interesting and useful as it covers virtually all you need to know at the start:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pO6iJPbmdk Simon

      HI Welcome to SKFA. Are your shrimps eating the crab cuisine at all? I don't blame them if they are not eating it. There are much better alternatives out there. Crabs will eat any junk, but shrimps are a lot pickier in their choice of food. Have a read of the numerous choices in the "Food & Nutrition" subforum. And remember, you don't have to limit yourself (and the shrimps) to processed foods. Look at leaves, flowers, vegetable off cuts or even frozen bloodworms.

      Why oh why do you disagree with me? 😄
