  1. I bought a few fire red cherries from a local lfs three weeks ago and was disappointed to see one had the dreaded green fungus. I quarantined it with some moss soon after bringing it back home. At first, I thought it had no hope, but about a week ago I found an article listing possible cures for it. The article stated MarksShrimpTanks uses hydrogen peroxide on his shrimp tanks to treat shrimp diseases, including green fungus. Instead of using it on my whole fish tank, I decided to dose it on my quarantined shrimp. I used about 1/16 of a teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide for 4 cups of aquarium w

  2. I was told that the brown leaves have a weakened cell structure, which lets the shrimp break them down easier.

    Substrate suggestions

    I really appreciate the advice. My shrimp just had the babies the other day haven’t seen them yet. But excited. And found another one will eggs. I agree with the SS GH/KH. I was nervous about this rout because I was worried it would cause PH swings because of the buffering substrate. That’s why I wanted you get an opinion on which I should use the SS GH+ or SS GH/KH. Yes I know it was making me feel bad about getting the wrong substrate advised by others. And was confused because they seam to be doing well on the substrate.

    Genetics Links

    Is there a spot where links are (or can be) posted so everyone can read about shrimp genetics who are just learning. Maybe I missed it, but what an incredible resource that would be! I’m not new to shrimp keeping but now I want to learn about genetics as I am getting some very interesting morphs from my Blue Bolts. 6 months ago I separated BB Extreme and now I’m finding Crazy BB and some stardust looking blue bolts, which will son get their own tank! Photos are what I’m getting...

  6. Keep doing what you've been doing, maybe have some baby food on hand. When babies come don't over feed, if your tank is already established, it should have a good amount of biofilm, congrats.

  8. They really do fit like lego pieces. The spongeinator 8000. Has anyone tried different sponges on these? I have two with no sponges and was looking for a cheap sponge to use. The replacement sponges cost as much as a new unit. I know they're only a few bucks but I'm cheap and enjoy doing DIYs with household items.

    Yellow shrimp, but how

    Wow! Gorgeous Caridina Yellow Shrimp. It would have to come from a cross breeding from a Tiger and TB. I don't think any TB alone TB x TB carries a yellow gene, unless already crossed with a Tiger. Similar to the yellow on Super Tigers. Hope you try to breed more of them, I am sure many would be interested here.

  10. I’ve been keeping shrimps and breeding them for more than 7yrs now, and what I’ve learned from keeping and breeding shrimps is there will always been products available on the market that will claim this and that. After spending a lot and testing a lot, I found that in terms of foods, there are VERY little differences among commercialized foods. It’s great that everyone likes to try different things because it keeps the hobby and passion strong. I know I always get excited when I get new equipment or foods to try on my shrimps. On the food front, I found there’s a lot more horror stories

  11. Hello everyone, I realized recently that we do not have an article dedicated to the topic of shipping shrimp. The goal of this article is to give people that are new to shipping shrimp some ideas about how that we do it. I realize that with anything in this hobby there is more than one way to do this. Some things or items that I use will not work for everyone and they may have a different opinion. I am always open for different ideas, Im just writing up what I know and what has worked for me! So you got some shrimp and have had them a for awhile and you are getting to the point that yo

  12. Not saying this is what happened to you, however some people will feed foods to increase color without telling the buyer. What happens then is that the shrimp lose color later when fed different foods. As long as the buyer knows a food is used to increase color when buying, I have no problem with it. It is only when a seller sells to an unsuspecting buyer that I have my problem.
