  1. You may want to check out Breeders and Keepers Shrimp Magazine. Vol. 2-3 will cover some of the concerns you have.
  2. I'd reset also. If I was Living back in the states instead of Germany. I would hook you up with some TB's for free. Having a loss like that is sad. Especially during a breeding Project. All that time and effort down the drain. It is good to hear that you are still wanting to continue shrimping!!
  3. No I do not use undergravel filter. Depth wise- for a 60l Aquarium I use a 9l bag. Make sure the substrate is more then 4cm high though. I recommend buying the bigger granules, not the powder type. Bigger granules seem to hold ph more stable.
  4. Hello Nicpapa, I use GlasGarten environmental soil and love it. I would suggest using it. You will not be disappointed. I have used it for 1 year now and my Aquariums still hold a ph below 6.0 with RO water remineralized with SS GH+. As far as cycle time, and the amount of Aquariums you have you should have no Problem seeding the Aquariums you choise to use GG soil in. Kind regards, JonRon

    Baby aura blue tigers

    Thank you for the Response. I have been breeding Aura Blue, Caridina serrata for over a year now. I have not had one look like this. Even after 0-3 weeks of hatching. Are all of the Aura Blue's you purchased like this? Where did you purchase them from? I will provide a link where I have found a Shrimp that Looks like yours. However it is a crossbreed with an Aura blue and blue bolt/Panda. The site is in German. but states this. "Here is a picture of a TaiAura, where a Panda male and / or Blue Bolt covered an aura female. I think that is only the first tip of the possible and also with the red dot surely such interesting crossings are possible." https://www.garnelen-tom.de/zwerggarnelen-shop/Aura-Blue-Raritaet I hope the Information I have given can help. Kind regards, JonRon

    AuraTi questions

    I hope Mayphly will give me some insight since he went this route in breeding Aura's and Pintos.🤞
  9. Hello, Starting off by saying earlier this year I had successfully breed a few of my Taiwan bees with Aura blues. If I am not mistaking this offspring is called f1. If this is true, my f1 AuraTi’s have now created my next line of f2 AuraTi’s. I am aware that most of the patterns and coloring of the shrimp will develop more in the f3 generation and thereafter. However, I have a few in my aquarium that I am very intrigued with and would like to gather some insight from you all and see what you think. A majority of the shrimplets (f2) carry zebra stripes, along with spotted head. I also have a few that are looking more solid in color like white, light blue, yellow. Yes, Yellow! My camera does not do its justice. The pictures posted are the ones I need insight on though. Are these solid blues ones extreme black king Kong’s? What about this red one that also has blue on its shell. Would this one be A dragon of some sort. Lastly, the last shrimp photo. Would you consider this a galaxy, or just something not fully developed yet? Pictures posted in order from F1 mothers, Blue Shrimp, Red/Blue Shrimp, I guess the unknown Shrimp.
  10. I have to call Bunks on the Avocado stuff. Yes they do have persin which is a natural pesticide produced by the plant to Keep Bugs from Eating the Avocado plant. However, inverts are not harmed by this i.e. snails. ect. I have been feeding my Shrimp Avocado seed powder for some time now six + months and I have had Zero issues. Also I have not killed any of my fish either.

    Would you explain the different grades of the Aura Blue's. More Pictures would help also.

    Preorder my shrimp food

    Hello everyone, I was very unfortunate to have ¾ of the batch, of my organic shrimp food get a huge case of the mold. Due to myself letting the batch sit outside to air dry, and rain got into the batch. My shipment date has been set back some time. Hopefully, I can have this finished by the beginning of July. I must create a whole new batch from scratch again. However; on the good side of thing. I will be offering a few new products along with the shrimp pellets. They are Bee pollen from a bee farm in Poland, and stinging nettle lollies. The reason I have chosen the pollen from this location is because, this farm has hundreds of acres of flower fields of different types of flowers to produce their honey and bee pollen. The stinging nettle has been handpicked by myself from locations near my home in Germany. That are free of pollutants. I would also like to mention, I have to offer a smaller amount for the pellets. None the less, there will still be plenty to sustain your shrimp for a while. I will keep everyone posted when shipment is ready for ordering. Kind regards, JonRon

    What plant would work in my case!!

    I have no Wood inside this Aquarium. Only Dragon Stone. I built the Substrate up in the back and the rocks Keep it from falling. It helps to have a lot of plants to Combat hair algea. Plus using the correct amounts of ferts, and light. I would have no Problem getting rid of plants. I throw a ton away every month from this Aquarium. however; I do not know if you would like to pay for the shipping cost since I live in Germany. You could find plants at your local fish store. It would probably be cheaper for you to go that route. Lastly, I have did some remodeling of this Aquarium. Does not look the same as above anymore. I will try to post a Picture of it later. Kind regards, JonRon
  14. First Picture of Shrimp on Bottom left has a Dragon head on it. The CBS on last pic has a fish Swimming on it!! cool patterns

    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.
