  1. Unfortunately can't see the video. Tried several browsers. Can you try a repost?
  2. I have 2 (maybe 3) packages of first generation juvies from Vin SS PRL. Price is $75 per 10 + $15 shipping. Payment by PayPal or Zelle. PM if interested.
  3. Forums are better than FB anyway. Hopefully we can get some good traffic here now. I'll be hitting you for some shrimp soon.
  4. I don't believe so. I just moved them in with the Tigers about 3 weeks ago. These dropped about a week ago.
  5. And this one looks like a No Entry. Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk
  6. They're very tiny. Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk
  7. I purchased some Red Pandas from a reputable dealer a few months ago. They just dropped their first shrimplets and there are some(~25%) that look like CRS, mosura pattern. This shouldn't happen unless they've been crossed with CRS in the past, correct?
  8. My Aura Blue male scaled the wall and got in with my red pandas. The result of which was some crosses. Mine show a lot more striping than that but they are still small. I'll try to snag a pic tonight (won't be as good as yours). Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk
  9. Problem solved. Removed everything from the tank and smelled it. There was an algae in the corners of 2 of the tanks that once I scraped a little it became obvious. Smells much better now.
  10. I currently have 3 40B's for shrimp. One has red Eco Complete (smells fine), one has Brightwell (stanky) and the last has Black Diamond (stanky). I usually do my water changes when my nitrates rise, which is rare due to my floaters, or when my TDS raises 5 points. Usually 10% every 2-3 weeks. All my non-shrimp tanks smell fine.
  11. I've always had a very healthy smell to my tanks. Be it shrimp or fish. Generally described as an "earthy" or "rain" smell. My tanks have recently taken on a very strong earthy smell. It's not an offensive odor, just very strong. I walked into the house tonight and instantly smelled it. After working in my tanks my hands also smell strongly of it. Anyone ever had this before?
  12. Well, I tried saving the tank with some beneficial bacteria additives but no success. Lost the last three today. I'm going to tear the tank down this weekend and reset it. Is there any way to save my moss and anubias or should I just throw it out? Maybe a dip in potassium permanganate to kill any bacteria that may be on it?
  13. And so it continues... I guess it's time to start over. I'll have to do an insta-cycle on one of my spare 10-gallons tonight for the remaining shrimp. My wife loves it when I set up tanks on the kitchen counter.
  14. After the second failure I threw everything out that I was using for the tank. Leaves and foods. I didn't toss the remineralizer or Bacter AE. I did switch to Magic Powder though with the third batch just in case. The water I'm using is my own RO. Tests 4-6 ppm out of the tank. Also, just to clarify. I am putting food in the tank. They just never touch it. I've tried everything from Shrimp King to SL Aqua to Shrimp Nature to ... They'll eat a mulberry leaf. Just not much. They also show no interest in IAL, oak leaves or guava leaves. Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk
