    Compatible fish, with shrimp?

    Hi, thanks in advance for helping! I have a heavily planted 2 gallon nano tank with one ghost shrimp. I'm looking for tank mates, preferably solitary becuase I don't have the room for fish fry:). The tank is heavily planted, with 3 Marimo moss balls, 6 small water wisteria, and some natural decor and a cave. Ideas please? Tank specs are: Tempurature- a constant 69 pH- constant 7.8 ammonia/nitrites/all that jazz- 0ppm except for nitrates, which is about 15-20ppm usually The tank has undergone the nitrogen cycle. Thanks! This is a picture of the tank, to get a sense of dimensions. The flashy gravel was chosen by the youngest child in our family.

    List of fish compatible with shrimp

    Hello, I would like to introduce Mugilogobius sarasinorum but I am afraid they will eat shrimp. Do you know a list of fish compatible with shrimp?
  5. Hey, brand new to this forum and just looking for a bit of advice. I have three ghost shrimp in my community tank. Two males and one female. They appear to be molting A LOT. Like I must have seen atleast 4 in the past two weeks...is this normal? I've heard molting can be a sign of I'll health. But they're all active and what not. Any advice would be fab please!

    Yellow Shrimp

    Does anyone know what this shrimp is called? Grade? Quality? Tell me anything you can, thnx.
  7. 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!!!

    Mayphly's Pinto Journal

    This is where I'll be keeping track of my newest project in hopes of creating some new and exciting pinto shrimp. I'm sure other cool looking shrimp will come out of this project and I'd like to share with you in this shrimping journey! Tank set up Soil - Amazonia Water- Re-mineralized RO Light - 7g Led low light (beamswork) 20g archaea compact 36W Filter - double sponge and oversized aqua clear hob Low light plants and moss. No co2 or ferts. My original 11 TB showed up back on March 3, 2014. They were 1x panda, 3 x shadow panda, 2x med/high grade bb and 5 low grad bb. As of today I have all mentioned above along with ruby red, wine red, red bolt, and bkk. I started selectively breeding female mosura mischlings with random male tb resulting in some mosura shadows. My TB parameters are PH-6.0 TDS- 155 GH- 5 KH- 0 Today I am starting to move some of my tb in to a 20L. The 20L has almost identical parameters as the 7g. I received my tibee on Oct. 29, 2014. Today I will be moving some selected tibee into my 7g cube Taiwan bee tank in hopes of creating some pintos. The tibee are still to young to breed. Once they grow a bit more I will move them in to a breeder box with selected tb. The tibee I’m using come from Jaime who has been selectively breeding tibees for some time now. The two types of tibees I’m using are pseudo tibees (TT x C grade crs) which are 4th or 5th generation. These can range from orange with red stripes to orange with black stripes and a couple of other oddballs. The other ones are are from the (super tiger x bumblebee) also 4th or 5th generation. This cross is mostly white right now. The mother had a blue-ish green tint on its head. It will be interesting to see how these look grown up. The parameters for the tibee tank are PH 6.5 GH 5 KH 0, TDS 140 Temp 72 Here's a link to my gallery
  10. Azoo Active Filter 4in1 has 4 different types of media that it comes with and I want to research toxicity before introducing to any shrimp colony... “Silver Ion” - inhibit bacterial infection. (SiO2, CaO, P2O5, Ag, Zn, Mg) “Far Infrared–Rays” - decreases size of water molicules, promotes better metabolism as well as color and lifespan. (SiO2, Al2O3, CaO, MgO, Fe2O3, Na2O, K2O) “Anion” - neutralizes suspended solids and other factors conducive to pathogens, providing clarified water, improved metabolism. (SiO2, CaO, Al2O3, TiO2) “Calcium & Magnesium Ion” - releases important ions such as Ca2+, Mg2+, B3+, Zn2+, Li+, Al3+. (SiO2, Al2O3, CaO, MgO, B2O3, ZnO, Li2O, Na2O) It would be nice if it turns out safe to use with invertebrates because of the effects of these media’s on water quality, FYI: I bought a small amount of this media and tried it in my tank but it was only 2 ceramic pieces of each type. Way less than actually needed for any tank size. I have not seen any indication that damage has been done to the colony since I added it about a month or two ago. My first year in shrimp keeping I’ve learned that to much of anything can kill, I understand that a lot of people say “copper kills shrimp!” Which it does but only at higher levels (~0.07 PPM for Caridina). But this media has things listed that I have no idea about, for instance... Lithium, Silver, Aluminum, Silicon. If anyone has any insight on even the smallest bit I would be glad to hear back and I’m sure this post will come in handy to the next person that runs across it.

  12. Ok so just made an account to ask this question... I have had a 30 gallon fish tank for some time now and soon I’m going to be upgrading to a 70 gallon and want to turn my old tank into a shrimp exclusive tank. I am not too interested in breeding, although it would be cool and I would like to know if it is possible with some species I picked out. From what I have gathered from some research neocaridinas can not interbreed so I can choose one neo. Then for caridinas i am getting conflicting answers. Can they all interbreed successfully? There are a few in particular I would like. My list is looking like this: 5 red cherry shrimp 5 blue bee shrimp 5 tangerine tiger shrimp 5 Indian green shrimp 3 crystal red shrimp 2 crystal black shrimp Would all of these get along? Would they all successfully breed? Will they be happy? If no to any of these please explain why and maybe an alternative, thank you!

  15. Hi folks! Just wanted a general idea how you deal with algae in your tanks, if at all. I know there are different types and colors. Which are safe for your shrimp? Which are toxic? Are there non -chemical ways to treat it? I've read and heard a lot of contradictory info. Thanks for any feedback! Sandy
  16. What i'm hoping to do is make a shrimp tank for 27.05 USD. i have a gift card to pet smart for that amount (from returning something). I already have a 5 gallon tank a hood (no bulb) and a filter housing ( no sponge or cartridge) a net That's all i have. What i think i have enough money for pre filter on the intake (~4) (only biological and mechanical filter in the tank) one marimo moss ball ($8)(they have fake ones that do grow moss and are a couple of bucks cheaper. are these ok?) Declorinator (like $8 for 3 oz) Light (~4.50)(will this provide enough heat in house that gets down to 65f at night?) however many ghost shrimp i can get with leftover + $2 in change Will they be able to survive ~2 months until i got get more money? Also would it be necessary to buy a thermometer for this set up?

    Shrimp that get on

    So I currenly have cherry and rock shrimp in my tank but wouldn't mind adding to it a little more, I was wondering what other species of shrimp would get along with the cherries and rock shrimp as I do not want to introduce a species that may harm or be harmed by the others. Anyone any ideas or should I just leave it at the cherries and rock shrimp?
  24. Hi all, first post here. I have been researching this and haven't found anything that matches whats going on with my shrimp. Everything i have found is parasites on the shrimps head and body, but nothing looks like this, looks like white specks on the tip of the shrimp's nose. It is affecting about 4 of my shrimp. Seems to be the older ones. If you can tell me what you think it is and how to get rid of it, would be greatly appreciated. Tank is about 2.5 months established So I left for vacation, was gone for 6 days. Right before I left I did a 30% water change and fed them the normal amount of food. There is some algae buildup, due to the lack of CO2 I am assuming. Light is on a timer for 7 hours of light. 10 Gallon tank. When I got back, I had lost 2 shrimp and found that some had white spots on their "noses". Started with about 10 shrimp, there has been some breeding so now there are about 10 or so juveniles and more on the way. Cherry reds, Blue Velvets and 1 CRS are currently in this tank. I typically change my water 1-2 times a week 20-30% and dose Excel and API Leaf Zone twice a week. CO2 every day, sometimes every other day. Let me know if you need any other info. Tried to get decent pictures, but they move around so much it was tough. Can get better photos if needed. I am pretty new to keeping shrimp, so feel free to tell me if I am doing something wrong. I welcome advice. Also, you can see the stringy algae on some of my HC and substrate that I have been battling for what seems like forever in both my tanks. The shrimp don't eat it. If any tips on that also, would be appreciated. May just drop the light cycle if thats it, but i was trying to grow my HC which has been a very slow process. Thanks in advance! Thanks!
  25. are there any good offers during black friday? i want to buy some shrimp but i was thinking that maybe a few people in here or some of the pages that sell shrimp might offer discounts for thanks giving or cyber monday? i want to start setting up a rack but should i just set up tanks for now and wait or just start buying shrimp already?
