    Preorder my shrimp food

    Thank you for your reply. I was Aware that Persin is present in Avocados. And it is toxic to other animals. Including birds, rabbits, mice, cats, and dogs to name a few. However I came across a post on ThePlantedTank.net an though I would give it a try since an Avocado contains many essential nutrients, omega-6, and omega-3 polyunsaturated fats. There has not been one death of any of my Shrimp or fish since I first started feeding Avocado. Five plus months.

    Preorder my shrimp food

    Awesome! If you do not mind the wait. I have to ship it stateside. I will let you know when you can order. I should have some ready to send out within the next weeks. I was hoping to get a Group of People interested in buying. Where I know how much to send at one time. I guess I will send as much as I can. Then when supplies run low I will send more stateside. Thank you for your interest. JonRon
  3. I Keep otto's, Tawian bees, and Aura Blue Shrimp in a pH of 5.5-5.7. You should be fine with what you have unless your RCS are Red Cherry Shrimp which is Neocaridina. Who require a higher pH and what not. I am not familiar with Neo's only Caridina.

  6. I have uploaded two videos of my shrimp food. I currently have two types to offer. Pellets and powder. I am selling pellets $12.00 for 65g Powder $9.00 for 30g This is a preorder because I have to ship to a family member state side. Once family member receives shipment. I inform the members who placed preorder. Once payment is received by me. Family will send shipment with tracking. This is the only way I can think of to keep everyone who is interested in buying my shrimp food from paying $20 for shipment from Germany. Kind Regards, JonRon 20180506_221925.mp4 20180506_222237.mp4
  7. Okay. I have checked with Germany postal Service. For shipping it will cost 鈧16 which will be around $19.25 to ship to the states. I am asking $12.00 for 65g pellets. and $9.00 for 30g powder.

    keeping CRS sucsessfully

    Hello Hunter. I had an issue with my TDS Levels and GH around a month ago in one of my TB tanks. My Parameters were doing great so I decided to not check them for a while (two months maybe). Low and behold after neglecting water changes, and 1/4 of water evaporating from the Aquarium TDS was 247, and GH of 11. I was freaking out. My favorite Red Bolt died (it was super pink in Color). I feared that more Shrimp were going to die. I decided to drop my TDS as much as possible. After that days water Change my new tds Level was down to 150. And GH was back down to 6. I used RO water with 14 tds and SS GH+ to give me a Little under 100 tds. I took a Chance on killing my Shrimp by doing this. It worked though with no deaths. Next day I had at least 10 molts laying on the soil. I feel that if you drip acclimate your Shrimp till the Parameters in the water they came in to your water. You should be ok. Just consider when buying Shrimp, you are always going to lose some in the beginning due to stress, and a Change in Parameters.
  9. It would be around 20 Dollars through DHL. If you are interested in buying some. I am willing to give it a shot.
  10. It sure is. It is the seeds that I am using. Here is some Information on the Nutrition of mango seeds. 100 gram of mango seed offers 13 g of Total Fat 32.24 g of Carbohydrate, 0.19 mg of Vitamin B6, 6.36 g of Protein, 1.3 mg of Vitamin E, 2.02 g of Total dietary Fiber, 22.34 mg of Magnesium and 0.12 碌g of Vitamin B-12. Moreover many Amino acids 8.4 g of Leucine, 3.23 g of Isoleucine, 2.31 g of Histidine, 3.8 g of Valine, 2.04 g of Threonine and 3.13 g of Lysine are also found in 100 gram of mango seed. That is a lot of Yummy stuff for These Little inverts. I forgot to mention my Otocinclus like the pellets also.
  11. I wanted to inform anyone interested. I have been making my own Shrimp Food. And developed a few kinds that my Shrimp go nuts over. I have powder and round pellet types. I dont have good Pictures. The one posted is with the pellets. About the size of a BB. This is a mix of Multiple ingredents including Mango, and Avocado seed. I will try making a Video, If anyone can guid me on how to post one on the Forum.

    Genetics Question

    If I am not mistaking. Many females will get a back-stripe. My Aura Blue females have them. However; the males do not. It is possible for you to breed them with the "racing stripe". I do not know how this works. Or the genetics of it. The way yours look on that female. It could pass onto other Shrimp including males. If so, You could try making a fishbone pattern. Hope to have given you some insight.

    Hello from new york

    I just let my temp rise. Last year the water did not go over 24*c So I was happy. If it does this year I am not sure what I am going to do. My place here in Germany has no AC. I am happy I am not living in a state like Texas with no AC. I have lived there and summer is extreamly hot.
