    Post Your Shrimp Pics

    I like taking pictures of my shrimps with my Nikon and my cellphone camera. Feel free to post some of your favorite shrimp pics here to share. Here's a few of mine to start
  2. Hi there, I am Vinny and this is my planted aquarium. it is a 20 long with a screen lid on top. I have had fish since I was nine years old, but I have never had a planted aquarium before. I have always wanted RCS in my tanks as a clean up crew, so that's what I did. When I put these guys in the tank they were all over cleaning plants and scavenging. And then I added fish about two weeks later... I added a golden wonder killi fish along with some small tetras. It seemed like the killi was hunting the RCS so I removed him from the tank. Now ever since I added the killi all my RCS have taken refuge in this plant shown in the picture bellow. The only time I see them leap out of the plant is at night time around 11:30pm... I have no idea what's the matter with them, but they are molting and still look very healthy. I am just concerned about the change in behavior. Any reply would help me so much! Thank you!!!
  3. First post here so if i'm missing something go easy on me. I have some PRLs that I'd like to continue to breed, but I wouldn't mind getting a couple other caridina or adding a caridina to the PRLs to get something new. Obviously this would be in a new tank so I don't mess up the line. I'm just wondering how you figure out what patterns do what and if there is a basics of cross breeding or a chart I could reference.

    wtb caridina shrimp

    hi im looking for caridina shrimp im almost done cycling my shrimp tanks but i dont know what to put in there? post pictures and prices of what you have for sale ill be interested in blue bolts,shadow pandas or something like that
  5. At one point I had a BB and BKK Panda tank. I took it down and separated the BKK's into their own new setup. I only had 3 left after the die off in their old tank. The female of the 3 has always had a peculiar backline since the day I bought her as a BKK Panda. About a month ago I noticed roughly 12 babies I was surprised to see that there were pandas, black dominant BKKs and most interestingly about half the babies came out with a zebra pattern. Also about a quarter of the babies have pretty orange eyes, maybe not full out beat orange but not dark at all. Now a month later some of the zebra pattern babies are showing head spots. I would like some clarification on what I am dealing with here genetics wise. It seems I am no longer in the realm of pure Taiwan Bee. Below I will have some pictures of the babies and the 3 adults.

    River/stream tank experiment

    I've always wanted a river setup and I was oh-so-close to having one. Unfortunately, my mystery snail breeding necessitated using the tank I designated as river tank for growing out the snails instead. Well I have finally wrapped up the mystery snail breeding, so the tank is finally ready for business! I hadn't decided what exactly I wanted to do with it until I was watching some Chris Lukhaup YouTube videos of Caridina shrimps in their natural habitats. I was struck by how much water flow characterized some of these habitats. With that in mind, I decided to make my tank a (mostly) shrimp tank. This does, of course, go against a certain conventional wisdom. Google around about dwarf shrimp care and you'll see lots of matter-of-fact statements that they should be provided an environment with minimal water flow. And it is true that some shrimps tend to be found in stagnant waters. But I wasn't convinced that this was so important, so I decided to try this. Here's the setup, which was first put together 2 years ago: 20 gallon long tank (30" long, 12" tall) AquaClear 50 filter placed at the end (not back) of the tank to send the flow longways. An additional Rio 90 powerhead for more flow. The AC50 has a Han stainless steel mesh intake cover and the powerhead has a sponge pre-filter. Light-colored sand came from Home Depot. large (mostly) rounded river rocks from LFS, which cost me a fortune...never think you can eyeball how much something will weigh. smaller river rocks from Home Depot large-ish spiderwood several pieces of cholla from a now-defunct shrimp tank, one with Xmas moss on it (just added) Marimo ball that has been in there for 2 years 6" pleco cave covered in Xmas moss Cryptocoryne undulata 'red', C. wendtii 'red', C. becketii Heated to 70-72F Custom-cut plexiglass lid with additional plexiglass piece to fit around filter and cords Since I took this pic, I've added a hanging light fixture instead. The green algae is there by design (for food!). I also did some DIY moss shelves suctioned to the wall after this pic. Here's the extra piece of plexiglass around the filter: So who's going to live in here? The biggest beneficiaries are some of the shrimps I already owned, because they're filter feeders: 3 bamboo shrimp (Atyopsis moluccensis) 1 vampire shrimp (Atya gabonensis) Then I added some new shrimps: 8 tiger shrimp (Caridina sp.). They're a pretty varied group, some quite blue, one or two more like the "super" tiger with orange tails, and at least one with rather red stripes. 2+ blue velvets (Neocaridina sp.). I say "+" because I only bought them because one was berried at the LFS. One of the eggs actually hatched while I was drip acclimating them and my spouse actually watched the hatching occur. I'm not sure how it ultimately did. By a few days later, all the eggs had been released. Now about 10-14 days later we're starting to spot little tiny blue shrimplets around the tank. Success! Next are some nerite snails, one of which is an "onion" snail. Another is a very young, compact species that is probably a Clithon sp. (horned nerites) but has an interesting brown color pattern that's hard to describe. And then on a whim I got a rarer variety of nerite that turned up at my LFS, which I have since gathered is Vittina waigiensis with no consistent common name. The best common name IMO is "tire track nerite." I haven't gotten a great pic of mine yet, but this photo from a site selling them shows you what I mean. Last but not least, I've added a river fish that I'm confident won't bother the shrimps: hillstream loaches, in this case the variety often sold as "Borneo suckers." They are Gastromyzon species, in my case I think one of G. ctenocephalus and the other G. scitulus. They tend to be mixed species groups in sellers' tanks (and the wild) and are not bred in captivity. Sadly, my LFS did a really terrible job getting them out of the tank—these guys are much more dedicated to being suctioned than suckermouth catfish are. The employee, who had never caught any before, was pushing the fish with his net on one side and then trying to pry the fish off with his finger/fingernail on the other side. It took a long time to net it and then took a long time again to transfer from the specimen container to the fish bag. One of them in particular lost a lot of its skin in the process, as you'll see in the picture below: We're calling that one Harvey (like Harvey Dent from Batman). I'm peeved with the LFS but I know they didn't realize how damaged the fish was. It took me a few days to notice how extensive it was. They can get very pale and when they do, these injuries are really hard to see. These fish like high flow (well, very high oxygenation moreso than actual flow) and I'm excited to give them a tank that meets their needs and shouldn't stress them with much serious competition for food. As a side note, you can see my biggest bamboo shrimp there. The two hillstream loaches were doing all kinds of hijinks on that big rock, carefully avoiding the bamboo shrimp who acted as if he didn't care or notice them at all. I may ultimately add one or two more hillstream loaches, but I don't have too many more plans for the tank. I'm hoping the tiger shrimps will breed, but they're more finicky than the neos and I'm not sure how eager they will be to breed at this temperature. We'll see how it goes.

  10. Hi shrimpers, I have a question that we may be able to answer today. What line are these high level breeders in Asia getting metallic shrimp from? I have seen metallic purple king kong on a facebook page. It was a video and it was literally a black king kong with a metallic purple upper body area. To be fair it was more metallic silver than purple but it was purple none the less. Someone in the comments claimed there was a whole tank full at one point in a Hong Kong shrimp store. I have also seen the metallic blue boa, imagine a very high grade black galaxy pinto with metallic light blue markings instead of white. Those I found on a very popular shrimp store website, also located in Asia. My question is where do these shrimp breeders pull the metallic trait from? Have they shared their secrets yet? Am I just ridiculous for asking this and everyone already knows how? I can probably find the pictures of the shrimp I do not know what is allowed or not so I figured I would wait until it was requested. Thanks
  11. Who will be the F10 TBM? Clean TB or TBM? According to the logic of F7-8+ Mischling gene must be lost, and will only have the genes of TB when administered to careful selection of course. Correct me if I'm wrong, please. It's important to ID my shrimp in the sale. For example: TB x CRS = Mischling F1 Mischling F1 x TB = Mischling F2 and TBM F1 TBM F1 x TBM F1 = TMB F2 TBM F2 x TBM F2 = TBM F3 ... TB(M?) F10 x TB(M?) F10 = TB Fn or TBM F11 ?

  13. Ok, so I have a ten gallon with various Caridina in it and plants. Running CO2 controlled via a Milwaukee pH controller, so I can keep my pH pretty close to whatever I want. What are the problems with CO2 and Caridina? I have an algae problem and would like to increase my CO2 to get rid of it, but would like to know what people think 1st. How low can I go with my pH? Thanks in advance for any advice. -Tom

    Caridina sp. Raccoon tiger

    One of my favourites (I am into natural forms a lot) since I got some from the first import last year. Caridina sp. Raccon tiger from Vietnam. I personally feel they look more in the direction of Paracaridina, but noone has had the time to do research, DNA and so on yet. Extremely hardy. I have kept them from 200 to 500 microsiemens and pH from "very low" to almost 8. Temperatures as most other species from Vietnam/South China. There is a similar species with small spots on the belly called Caridina sp. Umbrella Corp. that comes in mixed with these sometimes.

  24. I had two nano tanks that were about 3.5 gallons each. I kept mostly royal blue orange eye tigers in one and mostly painted cherry shrimp in the other. The parameters in each were ideal for the type of shrimp I was keeping in each tank. One morning I noticed that the cherry shrimp tank's filter stopped working. Since the tank was one of those with the self contained-filters I had to scrap the entire tank and get a new one. While waiting for the new tank to cycle my only option was to house the cherry shrimp in the same tank where I am keeping the Tigers. I thought this would be ok since I've read that cherry shrimp do well in a wide range of parameters when properly acclimated. However shortly after the transfer my neocaridina (neon yellow, painted cherry shrimp, black diamond) slowly began dying off while my OEBT and CRS were doing fine? From everything I've read caridina shrimp are generally more sensitive yet in my situation they are doing fine while my cherry shrimp are slowly dying off. What could be killing them? My parameters are: ph: 6.8 ammonia: 0 Nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 5.0 ppm KH: 2 GH: 6 I have UP Shrimp Sand under a layer of sand and the tank is nicely planted. I don't use C02. Though i do add about 3 drops of liquid fertilizer once a week. I feed them once a day with food ranging from blanched zucchini, shrimp pellets, BorneoWild, and occasionally add blood worms mostly to benefit the micro crabs.
  25. Ello All! I haven't made a full introduction yet, I'm Nick and I plan on making an intro in the next weeks once i handle this move back in with two of my college friends and see how may shrimp survive the stress.The aforementioned friends of mine are practicing marine biology and ecology, so they understand the needs of aquatic animals. They're quickly getting into the hobby of planted tanks and shrimping, so i'm giving them each a started colony. meaning... soon I'll be in that WTB section trying to get some shadow pandas, snow whites, etc. I guess I got off track, in my years of shrimping I've realized that there is always another hybrid to be found. The point is that id like to try and develop a system based on observed breeding that gives us an interactive web-based view of where each variation comes from. If you'd like to participate, please reply with as long a lineage of your shrimp as you can. (try to include pictures) Sidenote: I have a degree in Biochemistry, MolecularBiology, and Bioinformatics as well. I have sufficient knowledge in JAVA and Python, capable enough to make this happen. I would be thrilled to help. Send me any concrete knowledge of shrimp lineages!!! Starting points are the ever-famous neo and caridina charts, but let's try to expand it with an interactive aspect. Thanks, Nick
