  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

  3. I currently have a semi automated water change setup that uses drip emmitters to fill my tanks and then I have drilled overflows so they just overflow when full and drain out into my yard. For a smaller setup I would use a small water pump and tubing to pump the water into the tank. You can get a remote control for your outlet so you don't have to try and plug and unplug the pump (the remote controls can be purchased online or are often in stores around Christmas for use with Christmas lights).

  4. They belong to different lines and color works in an opposite way, opaque red shell vs transparent shell and colored flesh. There is a change of getting wild color type babies, if dominant genes are there. If babies inherit opaque shell and red flesh, flesh will be not seen under opaque shell. If babies inherit transparent shell and clear body, there will be no red at all. Neocaridina seem to have a lot of polygenic traits, when one trait (red shell, for example, or red flesh color) relies on several genes, even more combinations with unknown consequences are possible.

  7. I am totally new to breeding shrimp other than increasing my colony of fire red painted shrimp. I’m wondering if I cross them with Bloody Marys if I would get a more vibrant red. I imagine this has been done already. What comes of this cross? Here’s a pic of my colony.

  11. So I had bred my BB with another BB in a breeding tank and for the most part I have a lot of BB babies. I also have some that are pinto and crystal red patterns. Can I even get crystal reds from BB? Or would they be Taiwan bees?? I’ve just never seen this type of shrimp in the past.

  14. Hi! Yes - right out of the tap it is 40. After conditioner and remineralizer it is at 50 - in the tank, it's 124. Any time I do a water change or top-off, I drip the new water in with airline tubing, if that makes a difference to know!

  15. I bought 5 bumblebee shrimp recently, and I put them in a 5 gallon fluval tank with 9 fish, I figure that those fish will greatly reduce any chances my bumblebees will breed. I have another tank, a 2.6 gallon Fluval which has around 35 cherries in it including shrimplets. However, that tank has hydra and a somewhat high GH of 120 ppm. What would be my best course of action for my bumblebees? It is important to note that I intend to begin a colony! and that I also have 3 black neos with them in the 5 gallon.

  17. Nope it is called a blackline. It is pretty common in neos (usually females) and nothing to worry about.

  18. Why are you turning on and off an additional air pump? It sounds like your main filter is a HOB (hang on back), is that accurate? If so adding an additional source of air occasionally won't hurt your shrimp.

  25. Time flies! I moved last summer and haven't had a proper shrimp tank in years. Finally had time to set up some tanks at the new house but I'm on a super thin budget and reusing alot of stuff I've been collecting over the years. The tanks are a hot mess mostly because they were quickly moved from a 40b into two 10g and then quickly neglected while i was busy with other things. The shrimp are descendants of the same colony I started with 5 years ago. I brought to them with me when I moved from NM to CA. The plan is to get some plants and clean it up, while still keeping it a basic low tech

  27. Tank will have finished cycling after ammonia is close to 0, nitrite is close to 0, and nitrate should be between 0-5ppm. If nitrate is 10ppm or higher do water change to lower it to 0-5ppm. Neo tank I assume from your water parameters, ro water should be close to neutral ph of 7+/- 0.2, then add minerals to desire parameters.

  28. The safest way would be setting new tank, with some hardscaping, plants and maybe filter media from main tank. This was advised to me when I asked. If use ADA Amazonia Light, it should be ready for immediate use. This is how I expand, when new housing for Taiwan bees is needed. Only acclimate if pH is different. Old tank could be stored as a spare container for emergencies, quarantine or a new kind of shrimp. With Volcanit, find reviews (on Amazon, for example) if it leaches ammonia or could be used immediately. An alternative is to add some new substrate in a mesh, bag

  33. So back in Feburary I applied flea meds to my dogs just like I've done for the past 6 years of keeping shrimp. At roughly 1 pm. Only thing I did differently was I applied two doses to my big boy 140 lbs and i just happend to get my 72 inch lights in and thought there was no issue with the kids using the boxes for a sword fight just like we have done before. Around 4 or 5. Well after dinner and I got the kids to bed I sat down to play some call of duty and looked up and saw my fancy tigers zipping a zinging around the tank around 9 pm. Got my ladder out to take a closer look and saw the next ta

  34. So, polygenic traits are more common. Neocaridinia are almost definitely polygenic CBS/CRS color doesnt seem to be polygenic. When you mix black/red shrimp, some will be black and some will be red. It seems to follow a single gene. I'm a little confused on tiger shrimp vs bee shrimp. Bee and tiger shrimp are the same species. Tiger shrimp are traditionally black, but they seem to use a different gene for black coloration. Because if you breed a black tiger with a red bee shrimp, you get crazy patterns. None of the offspring are red tigers. Sent from my PH-1 using Tapatalk

  35. Looks like Monday is early! Surprisingly (at least to me) the tank is showing nitrates! If I'm reading these correctly, ammonia is at 1ppm, nitrite is 1ppm and nitrate is around 5ppm or so. (Side note: anybody else find it easier to read the colors from a photo than real life? Doing these tests makes me swear I'm colorblind!) It's a little late in the evening so I'll be doing a water change in the AM. Plan to leave the algae wafer debris just to keep the bacteria happy and make sure we're good and it wasn't a fluke reading. Now, to finally choose which color

  36. Hurray we have presence of nitrites! Ammonia had been climbing daily, peaked at 1ppm yesterday and has fallen to a touch over .5ppm with .25ppm of nitrites detected. No nitrates yet. Considering the tank is 6 days old, I'm thinking I owe it all to Fluker's Eco Clean and Godzilla for sharing his supplies. Monitoring will continue and algae pellet is still decaying. Maybe we'll have nitrates by Monday? Crossing fingers even if it doesn't do me any good since I can't buy critters. Silly lockdowns...

  46. 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.

Now I Did start off with a few Red cherrys in their tank how ever when they grew up I had to separate them from my newts and other fish because I found out they can eat prity large foods. these are my lesser syrens they will get a bout 2 ft in length and they are both about a year old. If you look at all my set ups they are all there with the intention to breed, I don't know why but breeding animals and watching something grow up that you were apart of is o

  49. The next tank I'd like to share is my red rilli tank. I made these rillis my self crossing some of my cherrys and blue velvets. These are by far my hardest and most productive shrimp. They reproduce like crazy I always have babies running around everywhere and my 4 main females from my first clutch are always berried I've never seen one of them with out eggs. They eat more then my cherrys do as well. Eventually I was able to pull enough blue culls out to start up my own blue velvet tank. I had only gotten a few blue velvets but never enough to have them into their own tank till the rilli star
