    Is this Planaria?

    Are these planaria? I took a picture of a longer one to get a better look. If it is Planaria, what are some good ways to nip these things at the bud? And on a side note what gender is this shrimp?
  3. I’m trying to understand what causes the coloration of vampire shrimp. I’ve heard that water hardness directly correlates with the color of their shell. I wanted to encourage my vampires to develop blue shells, and supposedly increasing the water hardness does that. Does anyone have experience with this? thank you
  4. Some of them go rusty, I wouldn't worry.
  5. Ok so the female is turning red! Should I be worried? The guy I got these from has some that turn redder as they get older. But I feel like this happened pretty quick.... Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Too Much Dry Leaves

    It has been almost a month now and the dried Apple leave in my tank is almost gone . The tank has lots of debris and seems to need light water change. Also, you can see a large Almond leaves just beneath the Apple leaves. It has never been touch. The Apple leaves have been munched by my shrimps and rabbit snails. .
  10. Blue bolt and tiger will interbreed I believe.

  12. Can I mix these 3 breeds in the same tank? Or will they interbreed and cause the wild grey shrimp 22 litre tank OR water blue wizard added ph 6.8
  13. I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish, a specific TDS range or a specific GH? I'd target the correct GH and let TDS settle where it wants. Mineral availability is what is so crucial to shrimp molting. Some wild caridina shrimps are able to live in water that is almost pure (25-40 ppm TDS). I'm guessing this is because of their diverse diet, so I don't see a huge problem with having a lower TDS (like 100 ppm or so... not 50 ppm obviously) as long as GH is in an acceptable range. Instead of doing constant water changes with slightly lower GH, why not just remove 10% or so of your tank water and drip pure RO/DI back into it to lower your GH another degree? Either way will get you there, but one way is much faster than the other. Shrimps should be fine either way...as long as you drip it slowly.
  14. So I just did a water change 10% and only mixed the fresh ro water to a gh of 4 which was a tds of 75. Now my tds in the tank is 145 and the gh is 6. My plan now is to do another water change in 5-7 days with the same gh of 4 and I just ordered some tds up to keep the tds at 135-140. Unless some one has a better idea or thinks this is the wrong thing to do. I figure it is going to take a while to slowly bring the gh back in check. Chris

    Cross Breeding Question

    I have been asking this same question around for months now. And all I can find is that most of the people breading shrimp are just mixing multiple colonies together or adding females to other colonies. Or selected breading a female to a male. And there is not control of the gene pool I guess because of the origin of the same cannot tell what is recessive or what is X and what is Y so the only thing to work with is the phenotype. And work from there. I will like to see if genotype can be a word of conversation knowing the strain and explaining the Homozygous and Heterozygous of a shrimp strain. Sorry for taking over your post, I love genetics old-time guppy breeder here, just want more info. I guess I will create a post to poke everyone's brain.

    Yep, it's fine.
  24. I was doing my water change and I was testing my RO water after remineralizing with salty bees gh+ to a tds of 130. I decided to test that gh+ and it was at 8. I decided to test my tank because I lost 1 shrimp recently and the tanks gh+ has skyrocketed to7.5 a 8. Curious if this has happened to some one else and how do I fix it so the gh stays at 5ish. Thanks in advance. chris
