Couldn't find if I've posted this as a thread, so thought I'd make one. Started as this 13316d1bae1501fa5e5a5a40cef055ff.jpg9d3a6949c5777f82dcb6fbdce58ab542.jpgc1d491a6a2be10c363466c797a543727.jpg Now it's looking a bit more like this 49807e7e6884ea747f7a2d18baabf724.jpgbb229339900d6f5a4b780938c4c90f8a.jpg02beb3895cf9ecb9b611578597c039e1.jpg

Can't remember cost of them all, had some for a while and split them up as growing. Hopefully now ferts are down pat they push through harder. Especially since new shrimp rack is running pro u lights so can have 2/3 plants on the go of each type

This weekend will be changing the light, hopefully adding c02 and then started a new feet regime once everything else is sorted

Also picked up some new buce yesterday.

Got metallic blue, and a new brownie ghost.
Got it from same person as our other ghost and he thinks it's a different variety, so see how it grows :)

Updated light to azoo flexi mini, looks great.

Also added up aqua nano c02, 1 bubble every 5 seconds (only during lights on) and will be getting Ada ferts during the week to hopefully boost the growth/health/colour of the plants.

Shrimplets are looking good, hopefully all the extra stuff for the plants doesn't effect them

Planning to get as many varieties as possible.

Some we have came with no names, but already if we get alot of types, in years to come hopefully they stay available. Seems alot of people's buce has died.

Hopefully adding c02 speeds up some growth.

Should have stems of lamundu mini purple available

      You know the deal Kingo, post pics of your shrimp eating it.

      I saw a post for blue glass shrimp on a certain online fish selling site and wondered if anyone else had seen them or even purchased them? I was pretty certain the only time glass shrimp go red or blue is stress induced. And when I looked at the supplied photo the shrimp appears white bodied under the blue. Is my suspicion on the health of the shrimp correct? Thoughts?

      Another brilliant read. Thanks for your input @jayc!  Can’t wait to try it out.

      You can cross breed them with any other Palaemonetes species.  But it's not worth it. They are generally clear bodied and the result will be the same, a clear bodied shrimp. Trying to cross breed them with Caridina or Neocaridina, will result in rather bland looking shrimp as well. So not much reward for the effort.
