  1. I don't think so. How much are you talking about?
  2. I have homebred shrimp, subject to availability (I breed it all myself) Neocaridina and Caridina.
  3. Sorry to hear this! Your must be using buffering substrate if your ph is so low (6.7), when you do a water change with tap with higher ph (8+) your shrimp experience a sudden swing.. For Neos or ghost shrimp just use inert substrate so you don't have to deal with swings that cause this type of stress and subsequent loss.
  4. Sorry to hear this. Your best bet is move them to a tank thats not affected by the spray (which you did) and see if they can survive after exposure to the bug spray.
  5. Hello, right now Shrimp shipping to Canada only. I currently ship dry goods and moss to USA.
  6. Muscular Necrosis, remove the shrimp and all others that look like this. Keep up with water changes and good water quality.
  7. I would recommend keeping different patterns of taiwan bees together or different patterns of pintos together for your tank to have diversity in pattern but not in quality/poor color.
  8. HOMEBRED SHRIMP! A few packages available of each... Green Jades High Grade 10 for $75 (Medium-Dark Green at Maturity) Blue Velvet 10 for $40 (These are light-medium blue, lighter then blue dreams, a few of them have very minor rili markings, most will not) Fire Red 10 for $30 (color improves dramatically with age, beautiful red shrimp) Bloody Mary 10 for $50 (color improves dramatically with age, beautiful red shrimp) Pink Ramshorn Snails 10 for $15 (These are small pea size) All shrimp are juven
  9. I did a video where I recommended Leaves + snowflake. Add the leaves 1-2 weeks before, add the snowflake the day you leave.
  10. I think that it depends on the population in the tank. if you have a 10 gallon tank with hundreds of shrimp the lack of space makes it hard for females to get away from males so I'd say a very low ratio of males. With a smaller colony and more tank space and hiding places it won't be as much of an issue.
  11. I would advise against this, I think there might be a few that will reproduce in Neo tanks but majority of caridina will NOT thrive or have a high baby survival.
  12. His post is from 2014, he probably doesn't have these
  13. I agree with the others, no fish with shrimp for best results
  14. there is no fast way to cycle ADA Amazonia,as other have said it leeches ammonia for a long time. It will be about 2 months minimum before its ready.
  15. FANCY RED TIGERS (mixed patterns) These are young adults, mixed patterns (someare more fancy and some more simple) 10 for $55 or 20 for $100 PH 6.2 KH 0 GH 4 TDS 140 BLOODY MARY These are .8-1.2 cm, young juvies 10 for $40 or 20 for $75 FREE with order... Will include free NL Moss (2x3" flat) and Free Mulberry Leaves 4x6 bag USPS PRIORITY MAIL $12.
  16. Yes its known that they get light after shipping, during stress and even can go opposite and intensely colored at maturity or breeding (dramatic improvement from juvie size) I've witnessed it all. The color can be influenced by all of the above.
  17. If it originally came as blue, and lost its color, They could be stressed. Caridina with blue (blue bolt, shadow panda) can change color intensity depending on things like temp, stress, breeding etc. You can put some good quality blue bolts in with them to improve and refine the line.
  18. Still available! Get some rare moss for your shrimp tanks I can send it loose if preferred (not attached to cholla)
  19. MOSS ON CHOLLA! 3" Cholla logs with Moss attached (with fishing line) All mosses are grown in low tech shrimp tanks (no co2 or ferts) All of these mosses are considered rare! Cameroon $14 Notocyphus Lutescens $14 Anchor $10 or all 3 (1 of each kind) for $30 Shipping is $5 USPS.
  20. Welcome to the hobby Neocaridina are the entry level shrimp that are quite hardy especially when you start with healthy quality stock and the right setup/parameters. You won't need a heater, but you will need to know your parameters, I presume your tank setup will be geared towards Neocaridina (popular beginner shrimp) You can keep various colors together but when breeding, they will produce pale or muddled/brown color babies. The way to avoid this with Neocaridina is to keep only 1 color instead of mixing. Shrimp can accept or tolerate parameters outside of their ideal, but they won't thrive
  21. Looking at a few of your closeup pics, It looks to be lacking pigment
  22. Buy quality homebred stock and cull them regularly to improve and maintain appearance. Don't mix different color neos together, will result in diluted color and more often wild type coloration (brown mottled)
  23. I would not recommend any other shrimp other then Neos in your water params, its on the high end even for tangerine tiger.
