    WTB Snowball Shrimp

    Looking to purchase 20-30 Snowball shrimps if anyone has any available or knows where I can currently get some. Joe's Aqua is currently out of service so I am looking for someone else... :/

    24 hour lighting cycle experiment.

    I have a 24/7 se on a low tech 55 planted tank and when I run it in the 24/7 mode I get a lot of algae growth. This may be why your seeing more shrimp on the matten filter as it's starting to grow algae. I think the low intensity light for so.many hours dosent really cause the plants to.grow but it's enough for simple algae to live off. Just my thoughts look forward to following Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    First try with shrimp

    Greetings from the Rocky Mountains. Long time fish keeper, finally figuring out how to actually maintain a thriving planted fish tank. I have a 29 full of thriving plants (and of course a good bit of that lovely hard green algae), stocked with a black angel, a spotted plecostomus, two Bolivian rams, four bronze corys, a very old Kuhli loach, and a pair of glowlight tetras that just keep hanging on. That tank is in its third year. I have been keeping tanks for the last 10+ years, but just fish. My current "science experiment" is a Fluval Flex 9 I am cycling, in which I am planning to stock shrimp. Not sure whether it will be Caridina or Neocaridina at this point, probably neos because I am under the impression that they are hardier, though I understand Bumblebees are pretty hardy Caridinas. Hoping to find some good advice and share trials and tribulations with other newbies, and get sage advice from those experienced with shrimp tanks. Glad I found the forum.

    Bacter AE for Shrimplets

    Just my personal experience, but I had issues with bacter ae polluting my tank. When I switched over to magic powder I had a massive increase in shrimplet survival rate. If you are using bacter I recommend very very small amounts. I remember reading on here before that someone recommended wetting a toothpick and dipping that into the powder. If you overdo it you will have problems.

    Bacter AE for Shrimplets

    In a tank that size, with that amount of shrimp and heavily planted, you don't need to do much different for the fry. I personally like to feed every 3 days and I have tanks with about the same amount of shrimp as yours, some with a little more. I do like to sprinkle a little sl-aqua magic powder into each tank 10 minutes before feeding. I do this regardless of whether or not there is fry in the tank, so there's a constant source of beneficial bacteria and biofilm residing there at all times, plus the shrimp like to graze on the little bits as the settle. With Bacter AE, I would use less than the recommended dosage. When I was using that product I used a "drop" size measuring spoon (1/64th of a teaspoon) per 12-15 shrimp twice a week. Any more than that seemed to pollute my tank. Even with magic powder, I use a small amount because I feel less is more with these powders in general. I don't have a problem with planaria or hydra but the detritus worms let me know when to ease up on feeding.

  19. Hi All I have had mixed results with my TB Shrimplet survival rates over the last couple of years. The tanks I fed heavily had better survival rates but were also taken over with Hydra and Planaria.....irritating! I started up two new tanks (60 litres) with ADA a couple on months ago. Both of these tanks have between 14 and 16 adults in each tank, a couple of berried females in both set ups. Two females have dropped, how much Bacter AE should I be using in each tank......daily, weekly? I also feed Shrimp King Complete 3 x times a week. My water parameters are 100%. Is there anything else I should be dosing with to increase the baby survival rate? I obviously don't want the Planaria and Hydra to become an issue again, so I guess a fine balancing act is required. All the tanks are heavily planted, IAL and a couple of cones in each tank and some of snails. Thanks
  20. I was thinking about adding to dwarf gourmis to my tank with ghost shrimp in it. Is it possible to keep shrimp with gourmis if the shrimp have plenty of space to hide?

    I believe you have a typo 9g ss/40L water=9dgH. 3g ss/40L=3dgH

    noob here, need some ideas for what shrimp to get

    When you keep neocaridinas and caridina shrimp together generally 1 set will do much better depending on your parameters. In your situation the caridina would do better. And mixing shrimp well you can get generally anything for instance if you mix blue and red neocaridinas they can throw multi colored shrimp and even purple neocaridina. In your case if you like the black and white types of shrimp and are not worried about mixing them, what about keeping some black crystals as they can fit the tank parameters and black crystals do throw red crystals from time to time. Just make sure to quarantine anything before throwing them in and have fun!
