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!

@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.

      Good to see you back and great that everything is going well now. Usually you should try and get juveniles as they are better at adjusting to new water parameters, but that is assuming they have juveniles, which they may not! You can't tell whether they are male or female at this stage though. If they have adults you can choose how many of each you want (if my memory serves correct the 2 you have left were males??? but I can't find the photo/post-my bad) but as long as you have some of each sex I am sure that your setup is now settled/constant enough that they will quickly breed (they aren't as prolific breeders as cherry shrimp though, smaller groups of babies and they don't reproduce until 6 months old). The only other thing you can look at really that I know about is whether they are lively/active, with good solid colouring. As you already have plenty of shrimp keeping success I think you can safely rely on your own judgement in that respect? Others may have more advice? Mine have always come in the post so I didn't get to pick them? They are a bit more sensitive/delicate so slower drip acclimatise them than the neos. Look forward to hearing/seeing what happens next!  Simon

      Hello everybody!! I am about to make a trip down to the fish stores to hopefully pick some crystals to replenish my first tank that i started(the 16litre). It is very stablized right now and houses the bloody marys and 2 surviving crystals. The bloody marys have acclimated to the parameters nicely since the majority of them are juvi shrimps that have been birthed in this caridina parameters. My question is, what are some of the things you guys look out for when picking out caridinas? I would appreciate some pointers as previously i was busy trying to get my parameters right and the basics of doing good water changes so i have not been buying new shrimps. But since now im ready to get some crystals, i realized i need more input on how you guys spot good shrimp quality. Things have been going great with the temps of both shrimp tanks, they range at 21 to 23°c. Tds is kept at 200 for the yellows and 180 for the crystal/bloody mary tank. Currently have got 2 berried yellow mamas, she must have hatched all of her babies wen i was in japan coz now i see two berried mamas and plenty of small friends swimming around. So very happy. I foresee culling in this tank soon, as it is only a 10litre and i did not expect the population to be increasing when i started this tank. Again, thank you to everyone here that helped so much in my learning process. The shrimps that i hatched artifically have grown to a considerable size as well after i came back, saw 2 in an adolescent size? I assume they are from that batch.

      I hope so too, Simon. The ammonia has dropped. Even 24 hours after last 25% water change. Nitrites and Nitrates are still up.will see if the ammonia stays at 4ppm and then drops further. I suppose no use worrying about nitrites until ammonia is close to zero.
