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!

I see what you mean.

 

@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.

      Very ingenious and a lot cheaper than buying something made specifically for the purpose. I haven't seen anything like this in the UK, we never get the range/variety that large countries like US and Australia get. It is good to give people all the alternatives and then they can decide what they want and what is available to them. I'm sure there will be lots of people interested in your water container. Is it easy to fill or do you use a funnel? Or have you cut a hole in the side/top (the black patch in the photo)? How big is it in water capacity?

      It was a normal red cherry. It was as they all were, a standard red color. No dark pigmentation in the bunch. Color definitely changed after death. All other shrimp are healthy, eating and moving around. water parameters were tested twice yesterday and twice today, i’ll probably do a third before the night is over. All parameters are perfect, tested with drops and tubes. Gh &Kh are acceptable. TDS is 240ish and hasn’t  moved in a long while. tell me about the bacteria that you reference. thanks

      There is nothing more satisfying than DIY, and building your own water change dripper. I use an old 4L spring water bottle that has one of those spouts that have a tap on it. Cut a hole on the top to make adding water into the bottle easier. (as per the picture below). And just turn the tap on ever so slightly until a required drip rate is achieved. Cost: $4 for the water bottle, which was used at a picnic.

      Was this a Red cherry or Black cherry? Pigmentation can change colour on death of the shrimp. It's difficult to tell from a photo if its pigmentation change or bacterial infection.   To be safe, test your water parameters for ammonia. A large change in population can cause issues in a small tank, especially when the beneficial bacteria cannot cope with the sudden increase in waste.

      Good morning, I received my order of 20 shrimp from a very well known breeder. All looked good. all water parameters were ok yesterday and are the same today. the tank has been up and running for 6 months. i had one cherry in there for almost the whole time. (Had more but I believe the black diamond sand created issues for the first 20 I bought) somehow this single shrimp has been a trooper and never had any issues, I obviously removed the sand) TDS is 245 i had one shrimp die overnight...to be expected I guess. Weird part is that when I found it this morning it had areas of black or dark blue on the sides of both head and tail.  I added in the tiniest amount of Bacter AE after they arrived. I also offered 2 granules of north Fin community and veggie. Which was gone a few hours later. so I’m wondering if anyone has any ideas? All the other shrimp look ok so far.
