  1. With the ADA soil you are going to be fighting a losing battle until the soil starts to lose its buffering capabilities. The ADA is doing what it is supposed to be doing. All my tanks run between 5.8-6.0 and my shrimps breed like rabbits.
  2. Bigger tank means less upkeep and more stable water conditions. Bigger tanks are far more forgiving when it comes to mistakes or neglect. The down side is the initial setup can be or will be expensive. My favorite size is 180 gallons.

    Auction closed.
  4. Super easy to keep and reproduces faster than neo's. The clutches are huge. So far about 1/3 of the babies have the amount of black that people see in the pictures that SteveR posted.
  5. They dont breed true for me. I get some with lots of black, little bit of black and clear ones.
  6. No heat, prefer cooler temps.
  7. Ph around 6.8 and my TDS around 170
  8. I obtained two batches from original breeder and are breeding like rabbits but they wont be for sale until late spring, was -31 degrees Sunday morning here in central MN.Cant sell or buy anything for a while.
  9. Its not there and still cant pay you through the invoice you sent via email from forum site. I will look in the morning and see if I can figure it out.
  10. I had the same issue tried the same thing as DetA. I thought I would have to wait until my membership expire.
  11. I would boil for 10-15min. How many leaves to put in really depends on the size of the leaves. Some oaks have more tannins than others, red oak for example have more tannins than white so that would be another factor to consider.
  12. I have heard the foam from China breaks down after a few years. 5cm / 2inches or thicker should be used. I only trust Poret. I only know of two places that sell it and they are in North America. http://www.swisstropicals.com/ http://www.angelsplus.com/index.htm
  13. 45ppi is the preferred choice but 30ppi is safe for babies and fish fry.
  14. If you asking about the remin, I get from this site http://www.pro-shrimp.co.uk/shrimp-king/686-shrimp-king-sulawesi-mineral-ghkh-200g-4001615061505.html
  15. That is why I never became a member at TPT . There are many successful techniques when it comes to raising shrimps, pick/find one and stick to it. The most important thing is consistency.
  16. No personal experience with amano's killing adult shrimps but I wouldnt be surprised.
  17. Amano's are apex predators of the shrimp world. They will eat babies.
  18. Best bang for the buck and is compact https://www.amazon.com/Portable-Reverse-Osmosis-Filtration-POQ-4B-50/dp/B00GJCE2X4/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1477272142&sr=8-4&keywords=purewaterclub
  19. I bought a large group from Dhu and Im very happy with them!
