Sulawesi shrimp varieties!

Recommended Posts

Is ANYONE wanting to try these out? Its not that difficult to house/maintain them. Just need higher P.H. 8.0 to. 8.5 ,,, TDS 160 or better. (can do this with additives).

I have a source in Indonesia for 6 types,,, Blue legged, Yellow cheek, Harliquin, Cardinal, and such... These are RARE indeed!

Chime in for your interests...

Tub bred from wild stock and with the de-forestation going on over there in Indonesia these hobbyists are actually doing these species a service. Lake shores of Poso & Matano where they come from are getting barren, cattle are messing up the waters and its getting really bad now...

I will contact my Shrimp guy and get a full list/pics on this Thread. One should be ready with a seasoned tank to house, 5 to 10 gallons is suitable. Heat should range from 77o to 84o

The more I get the cheaper they get. Shipping will be the biggest cost though so to split it among members is the way to go.

100 pieces is the minimum for an order. I'll get all the details as soon as I'm contacted again as we have been in-touch just last week....

VERY COOL I"M excited too!

Hm that's really good to hear. I think our hobby trade needs to be a positive fighting force against ecosystem destruction, not enable it as it often has (Cardinal Bangaii, etc). And ugh double hit on deforestation from clear cutting for raising cattle and the fallout from poop. This is why I don't eat meat!

I appreciate the detail and anything to prove the home bred operation (pics, etc. I believe you, but given Indonesia is far away it might be easy for them to say one thing but do another) will enable a purchase. Thanks @shrimplady!

My HOLDING tank (16 G. bowfront) for Sulawesi shrimp. I will add in 2  divider's before hand. I just emptied all old water & flushed & rinsed the top 1/3 of the sand bed in the bathtub.

I need NO dechloronizer as Its Well water 😎....

So now all of the blonde Maylaysian snails have come out of hiding! LOL

Its now full with 100% R/O water and will add in some Well water for topping-off. I added Liquid calcium and Iodine suppliments, (Kent products) and Bateria in a bottle to re-season it.

I will be tossing in a few pieces of algae'd Limestone rock from my outdoor tub pond as well. This should "harden" up the KH too. Rock comes from the San Juan Islands as there is a huge Quarry on Orcas Island. It's even found in a few lakes as well. The KH in them is in the 300 range and has Black Large mouth bass in one of these lakes (Kilbrew).
