  2. Hi! I am setting up a shrimp tank (5 gallon) I have ordered shrimp which should be here in a few days. I have read all about drip acclimation, but that is not a possibility as their tank is on my desk at work and I don't have the room to set up a drip rig. In their tank is a small heater meant for betta tanks up to 5 gallons. It keeps the water a nice 76 degrees. I plan on placing the shrimp in a bowl beside the tank with the water they are shipped in, and placing the heater in the bowl to warm them slowly (I can't remember the watts, but I know it's low and very mild... it took a couple of da

  6. Hi all, As the title says, I have some very small food for very small mouths, can I use this food as a substitute of Bacter AE to boost biofilm? I'm getting some AE soon but after the current berried female I have will most likely give birth. The food I have isn't being used, as my fish don't like it, or are too big. It's a very fine food, could barely be classified as a pellet. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks, -Dripstopher Columbus

  9. Hi all, this is the first time i have messaged but just seeking some advice about my Giant African shrimp. Since he is a big shrimp (17-18cm in lenght) and i wondered what the best filter would be? Im debating a large sponge filter(if so how large?) is adapted to create surface flow or the Fuval U- series as it has a down flow option?or both? Thank you very much id really appreciate any thoughts out there. Love from Claire and Mr Crabby Claws (UK based)x (video attached and its a 150 litre Aqua One)

  12. Hi there, I observe a really strange behavior with my anamo shrimp couple. I have this couple since one year now. I recently add some Ramirezi thought that the shrimp should be big enough to not get hurt by these fish. I observe the tank all day long to see how they was doing. Then on the evening I saw the male shrimp on the side still breathing but it seems that it was hurt, no swimming at all. The female on the other side stand near him to chase the fish who was too near of him. It was really amazing to see. But it did not end there. I decide to bring my couple to another tank
  13. I noticed a lot of breeders using Lubao bags in the shrimp tanks. I managed to find the guy who selling them on Facebook and purchased few. I very impressed how fast biofilm growing on them and how my shrimp love them. Is anyone knows how to make them? I opened one and its smell like bacterial supplement. I think its should be some yeast and some bacterial products but would be nice to know exact recipe.
  14. Hi, I did a newbie. I have a salt tank for decades then I decided to switch to freshwater. I gave away all my corals, live rock fish, substrate to start anew. The person I gave them too said he had some substrate for me. I received two bags of aqua sl. It says it was for shrimp so I thought that sounds good. Anyway, I did not read the instructions. I added the dragon stone, aqua sl (about 2-3 inches) in my 50 gallon tank. I added water, conditioner and then bacteria. And wait. I am really planning to just have my beautiful rocks and some neons and guppies for now. Cherry s
