    Cinnamon sticks

    Thanks. I got organic cinnamon stocks boiled them about 15 minutes. The shrimp really seem to like them.

    Cinnamon sticks

    I wondered if maybe my leaves and cones were old and no longer having their antimicrobial effect

    Cinnamon sticks

    Hi all I had an issue in one tank a month or so ago with the death of some sub adults and first time berried tiger hybrids. They were eating and active then got slightly whitish bodies. I thought it was a molting issue until a berried one died. It was probably a bacterial infection. Did water changes/water testing with no real answer, as water parmeters were fine. I have lots of leaf litter in tank. I have not had any new deaths. I was reading that cinnamon sticks have antiviral/antibacterial properties and that the shrimp enjoy eating them. Anyone use them? I ordered more guava leaves. I also read that Glasgarten beta GLucan prevents “milky body” in shrimp.

    Welcome to TSS
  10. hi all I have a Micmol aqua air light on a 10 gallon tank. I am wondering what settings would be best. I have wave moss, mini moss, fissendens "fox", short and narrow java fern, and a red moss "callagossa becarri. The tank has been set up about 4 months. After it cycled I added 2 panda loaches until I decided which shrimp I wanted. Its quite bright on the factory settings and was great to cycle the tank with, but I think its too much light for the plants and it seems too be a bit much for the shrimp as they hide when it comes on. Any suggestions would be much appreciated Thanks

    Shrimp Pimp Daily Feeder

    Thank you for the Shrimp Pimp food. My shrimp really attacked it. As it softens you can see the pieces of veggies/greens which the shrimp were fighting over. I have fed a couple times and shrimp had same enthusiasm. I love that you are researching ingredients and local sourcing. Good job I will order more in future

    Increasing shrimplet survival rate

    I am a big fan of leaf litter! It provides hiding spots, biofilm and health benefits. I bought the shrimp pack and pleco pack from Tannin aquatics, a member here, I love the natural look and my shrimpies love it. I also bought mulberry powder from wyzazz and my shrimpies love it. Water parameters stability is the key. I am not sure but is temperature too high? I keep my tanks at or below 70. Just a thought. It's very easy to overdose the powdered foods, if shrimp are busy and you have biofilm you may not have to feed daily, even with babies.
