  1. 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.

    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

    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.

    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
  8. 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.

  11. 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

    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.
  14. It would be around 20 Dollars through DHL. If you are interested in buying some. I am willing to give it a shot.
  15. 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 µg 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.
