    SL Aqua Blue Wizard GH/TDS math

    ~25-30 TDS per GH is a rough number to go by. there is some variance with all GH minerals. just how it goes.

    well if it was a neo then it couldn't have crossed with any caridina.

    Shrimp Food - Pros and Cons

    bacter AE is known for consuming high amounts of oxygen in the water during the activation process (dry to wet) and add to that the warmer water temps (thus less oxygen in the water) you basically drown your shrimp (for lack of a better description)
  5. BUT the opposite side to that coin is not every breeder focus on the same traits. some like darker reds, some like different patterns, etc etc. so mixing gene pools isnt always the best with PRL.

    still call them swimmerettes! was just getting all technical about her. Still a lot of work to do to make this tank even better!

    Setup of our competition shrimp tank.

    shes about an 8.8 (out of 10). couple things to improve. I'd like bigger white circle on the head (personal preference), redder antenna, and perfect shrimp would have red pleopods (which is extremely f*cking rare)

    Setup of our competition shrimp tank.

    We never really updated after setting up. This was because we didnt want any photos to leak of our competition grade PRL before the contest. anyways... We took first place in the red/black bee category at the USA contest this year.
  10. that seems like a lot of food. do you have a huge colony? i'm sure there are other brands that have a snowflake available to you.

    WTB snowflake food Los Angeles area

    We are in culver city.
  12. i'd add a couple different types of leaves. catappa, guava, etc. they should be fine for that amount of time without feeding. you can add a snowflake also on the day you leave. that will last 3-4 days of picking on it.

    Rubbermaid Tubs

    I've tried this method years ago. it was terrible. when you try to remove the tubs it makes a bigger mess than its worth. in the long run when your soil is about to expire it will always be best to have another tank ready to cycle.

    BEST&BULK SIZE shrimp food!

    that "test" is far from scientific. some shrimp dont like foods others do. that "test" is personal opinion based at best. our PWL wont touch any foods except Aqua Ede Green Food, while our JRB will eat your sneaker if you put it in there. They've even destroyed some beautiful buce I added to their tank. I can get you any of the SL-Aqua foods in bulk. We supply a few breeders with large quantities of foods.

    Peltier Water Cooling

    You could make a closed loop system with some stainless steel pipes in the tank. that way no worries of any issues with corrosion from the radiators or etc getting into your water.
