  1. Hi! Where in Canada are you? I was looking into Thunderbolt Cherax and found this site. Curious if you still have some. I am in BC.  Thanks!

  2. Hey just wondering if you still had any bucephalandra for sale still. If possible I'm looking for five of the Bucephalandra sp. Arrogant Blue. My email is Burmaster.stephen@gmail.com. 

    Thanks stephen

    Questions on Cherax Boesemani Care

    Most on the information on the papua crayfish are in german unfortunately and that is where most of the breeders are as they are amongst to first to get their hands on the rarer ones. This is a good summary https://www.garnelio.de/mehr/garnelioblog/cherax-aquarienkrebse-haltung-im-aquarium crustahunter is also a good site to check out. There is more content available if you stick with the German version of the site This article is for the monticola but many of the same things can be said for the other papua crays as well http://crustahunter.com/keeping-and-breeding-cherax-cf-monticola/?lang=en Recent testing by Chris Lukhaup found that Blue Moon and Hoa Creek are both cherax pulcher and even with the wild caught hoa creek's you get a range of colour from "dirty" blue-green to the vibrant pink they are famous for. Boesemani is generally used now for the red / green chilli (aka red brick / green brick) For tank size; the ideal size would be something with an larger footprint something like a 40gal breeder (36x18") or 48x18" it is possible to keep a community of them if you have a large enough tank with plenty of hiding spots; i had around 20+ in a 110gal; there will be some jockeying for territory at first but eventually they will establish a peaking order with an "alpha" male They love digging their own tunnel / cave so i generally recommend a decent layer of gravel or fine sand (3-4") so they can dig their own hiding spots. When carrying eggs i find my females usually bury herself deep inside her cave and rarely come out. food wise their diet should be more vegetable based than meat or protein based. My loves the Shrimp King peas and leaves loops as well as a steady supply of Indian almond leaves. The older the males get, the greater chance they might lose a claw while molting; they get some big that it is very hard for them to get it out of the old exoskeleton successfully

    actually already posted some photos of them from a previous shipment on the first page: But i will post new photos shortly, just receiving the last shipment of the week that just arrived tonight. I have Thanks! From to get go, the plan to serve a very specific clientele; basically shrimp enthusiasts with similar interest in rare and harder to find shrimps. Part of it is the collector in me and part of it due to the limited number of tanks, we have to particular about which shrimps to stock - i guess I tend to "curate" my stock list more that larger dealers with whatever i find interesting or might be of interest to my customers rather than stocking "mainstream" species like neo's and regular CRSs. I also helps to work with many, many different suppliers and not be tied to any specific one. I am also a bit of a purist; my philosophy is that if you want german pinto's you get them from germany, if you want JPRL, you get them from Japan, etc; Those and the wild type shrimps always go fast! There were two things i was specifically looking for the past couple years; C grade CRS and wild type CBS - was able to scratch both off my list this year and not only that, i got them into the hands of several hobbyists so perhaps so in time they will be more readily available! Pricelist updated once again with tonight's shipment (last one of the week) - Orange Pumpkin Shrimps - Amano Shrimps - Galaxy Rasboras

    Hi Shrimple minded, yes i just in the process of taking some photos of all the new arrivals tonight; once i download them and process them on my computer i will post them here. The blue bees are still a bit stressed but from past shipments of them, I can tell you the one that that stand out compared to wild caught ones are how much more pronounced the white stripes are on them

    WTB Caridina Malaya Shrimp

    i find they are great algae eaters in general, maybe second only to amano shrimps, although short nose / red nose shrimps might challenge them for that distinction as well.

    WTB Caridina Malaya Shrimp

    i discovered something neat about them too! They are great at eating Black Beard Algae but only if you have lots of them

    This is the first i heard of this - do you have a source or more details? Can't see what type of liability there would be with shrimp food though... and if there is some sort of liability issue, I would imagine it would affect other imported shrimp food as well. I will check with my GlasGarten rep and report and what he says
