  1. FREE Stuff for Shrimpers!

    we miss you around here Soothing
  2. Water Changes for CRS

    I am a 10% per week kinda person. every once in a while I miss a week, but I dont like to just because I like to make sure my shrimps have all the minerals in their water that they need. when I see brand new babies, is when I decide to miss a week.
  3. Homalia trichomanoides

    i wouldnt mind having some of that in my tanks
  4. Safe Aquarium Plant Ferts

    I know others have used the flourish Excel in lower doses in their shrimp tanks, but Im not sure about the other seachem products including regular flourish. I personally dont use anything in my shrimp tanks.

    anything Soothing posts ALWAYS goes quick.
  7. Shelving unit

    I would not do the wire shelving units. I had a metal rack from lowes rated for 2000 lbs(500 each shelf). It collapsed with 3 10g tanks on 2 shelves. I now have a metal shelving unit rated for 2000 lbs per shelf and still dont trust it. I would build a wooden one if you can.
  8. Reliable pH Meter

    if you do not have a controller, then this unit is what I would get. ~$90 but well worth the money if you want reliability in your ph readings. https://www.amazon.com/American-Marine-PINPOINT-Monitor-Calibration/dp/B000255MH4/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1519141120&sr=8-1-fkmr1&keywords=digital+aquatics+ph+monitor
  9. Reliable pH Meter

    I have a digital aquatics reef keeper controller that I use an American Marine pinpoint ph probe with. I recalibrate about once a month. I leave it in the tank permanently only removing it to calibrate. It is rarely off target prior to recalibration. I bought it at the end of Jan 2017. Still works great and will replace with the same probe if it ever goes bad which all ph probes will.
  10. shrimp keep dying help!

    more like weeks which is why it is not practical to age tap water and not use a conditioner, unless the municipality only uses chlorine. by the time it is safe to use you should have done 2 water changes.
  11. shrimp keep dying help!

    chlorine will but chloramine will not. It has to be broken down/combined with tap water conditioner. Most municipalities now use chloramine vs. chlorine.
  12. humic blackwater

    if going the black water route you would need to prepare the water ahead of time to prevent parameter swings/shock while the blackwater effect happens.
  13. ID needed - Amanos or?

    looks more like a poorly colored neo. Does not look like an amano.
  14. shrimp keep dying help!

    yes eco complete has the ability to store and release minerals and what not. I have a fish tank with eco complete and it is always higher than every other tank I have.
  15. RO Water storage

    I use this style. I get them from my lfs http://www.thecarycompany.com/rectangular-plastic-tight-head-container-57w70n?utm_source=google_shopping&m=simple&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI4JCFz6Wo2QIVjYrICh1sLwEJEAQYAyABEgLjF_D_BwE
