  1. If you feel like starting anymore Caridina tanks. I would suggest using GlasGarten Environmental soil. I have been using it for two years now and have had no Need to replace the Substrate yet. My Ph started out at 5.5~5.7. Now after two years it is sitting 6.2~6.5. I just replaced Amazon light soil a few months ago on my Show tank with the Environmental soil. Had now issues with placing shrimp back into Aquarium the same day. However, it could have been because of the Bacteria I had in my canister filter. I hope this Information finds you well. Kind regards.
  2. Epitaph, I have posted a video for you to have a view of a few Blue steels that I have in my aquarium. These are F2 generation from a cross with Aura blue X Blue bolt. Possibly with Red bolts, and multi strip photo's. Feedin on my homemade organic food. 20190530_120013.mp4
  3. Looks like Blue Bolts. Not Blue Steels.
  4. The ones I sent the link too. They do lay a lot of eggs, however they Need brackish water for the eggs to hatch. My pH for all my tanks are not that low anymore. All are lower then a pH of 6.0 and have never had a lose yet. I would recommend These snails to everyone.
  5. I have had These guys in pH of 4.7 for weeks with no issue. Even Ramshorn snails. Although the Ramshorn snails I have end up as Shrimp Food when they get on the glass where I can grab them with my pinsets. Squish 🙄
  6. https://www.garnelenhaus.com/garnelenhaus/dusky-nerite-anthracite This is what I have for my Aquariums. I love These Things!!
  7. I have heard through the grape vine here in Germany that GlasGarten had been working on a better formula for the Bacter AE. However; I believe my sources to not 100% credible. If so, that will be good for shrimp keepers. I would strongly suggest that you purchase oxidations units for your aquarium while doseing Bacter AE since it reduces the amount of oxygen in the aquarium (the bacteria used in AE consumes oxygen). In reply to your dosage the fingernail clipping size is around the amount I would suggest. Maybe reduce the feeding schedule for the AE to once a week. This could also be why you a
  8. Hello, I have had this Problem in the past myself. However; with GlasGarten environmental soil. Provided is a link to my discussion Forum on TPT. https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/88-shrimp-other-invertebrates/1197882-b4-i-add-twb-i-have-ph.html There is not much Information on it. It might help though. In regards to the GlasGarten bacter AE. I would strongly recommend that whatever doseage you are using to reduce it to 1/4 of current amount. Purigen should not have any Problem with the water Quality in fact it controls ammonia, nitrites and nitrates by removing nitroge
  9. You may want to check out Breeders and Keepers Shrimp Magazine. Vol. 2-3 will cover some of the concerns you have.
  10. I'd reset also. If I was Living back in the states instead of Germany. I would hook you up with some TB's for free. Having a loss like that is sad. Especially during a breeding Project. All that time and effort down the drain. It is good to hear that you are still wanting to continue shrimping!!
  11. No I do not use undergravel filter. Depth wise- for a 60l Aquarium I use a 9l bag. Make sure the substrate is more then 4cm high though. I recommend buying the bigger granules, not the powder type. Bigger granules seem to hold ph more stable.
  12. Hello Nicpapa, I use GlasGarten environmental soil and love it. I would suggest using it. You will not be disappointed. I have used it for 1 year now and my Aquariums still hold a ph below 6.0 with RO water remineralized with SS GH+. As far as cycle time, and the amount of Aquariums you have you should have no Problem seeding the Aquariums you choise to use GG soil in. Kind regards, JonRon
  13. Thank you for the Response. I have been breeding Aura Blue, Caridina serrata for over a year now. I have not had one look like this. Even after 0-3 weeks of hatching. Are all of the Aura Blue's you purchased like this? Where did you purchase them from? I will provide a link where I have found a Shrimp that Looks like yours. However it is a crossbreed with an Aura blue and blue bolt/Panda. The site is in German. but states this. "Here is a picture of a TaiAura, where a Panda male and / or Blue Bolt covered an aura female. I think that is only the first tip of the possible and also wi
  14. Are you able to post some newer Pictures. With more Quality. To me that Shrimp does not look like an Aura blue. I have attatched Pictures of Aura blues I Keep.
  15. Hello. I have a ton of flame moss. What is your Location? I am Living in Germany.
