  1. Lol, I’m always hoping that the 1 bladder snail or even 3 bladder snails I find once I finish setting A tank up, are the only ones in there. I spend hours searching and searching and come up with no more then those first ones.. But yet somehow just somehow, the one day I relax and don’t check on the tank comes to bite me in the ass. Cause the very next day I find A shit ton of babies, and once that happens I’m usually always going to have to do daily population control. So what made you want to choose pumpkins or snowballs if you don’t mind me asking? I guess the pumpkin
  2. Damn that’s some nice lookin wood lol. Glad to have you back, any current plans on what you’ll most likely be putting into the tank once it’s finished being set up and cycled?
  3. So it’s kind of hard to tell but I think one of my Sulawesi CardinAls is berried? Man it’s cool watching them eat their fill on all the bio film they want! Even the dwarf Rabbit snails are having A feast!
  4. That’s awesome, I’m glad you where able to make it back here after talking with you on FB!
  5. Man I’ve been researching A few RO Units that are in my price range and can filter an adequate amount of water daily. But I still don’t have enough tanks to justify doing it, plus the tap water here really isn’t to bad to start with!
  6. So me and my bro cleaned up some of our tanks, and now I have A problem because of him lol.. He had these snail looking creatures that are all over the sides of his tank. Even after quarantining the hornwort plants I took from him, only for about 2 weeks in it’s own container. I still ended up with these snail look alikes all over my tank. Also, do you guys like it when the shrimps have A strong colored back strap/middle strap? It’s nice if it’s A close color to the shrimp, but when it’s kinda a whole different color it kinda makes me iffy on them.
  7. Well if I where to ask you if you where 100% sure that all the babies you culled where male, what would you tell me?
  8. Tap water, always believed and was told our tap water is some of the best tap water in the world lol.. but then again they where referring to it for drinking
  9. Here’s some Orange for yah! Some Tangerines that aren’t doing so well, and some Sakura in the White Tub. I was doing A water change, well dumping out some water back into the tank so I could restart the drip process. When I see little bright translucent specs zipping through the water lol, I almost dumped A whole bunch of baby fry out without even knowing!

    Beautiful bro, I’m glad you replied!! Wait those pictures are of all different baby shrimp right? For A second I thought their colors completely changed some how haha! Do you know about how many fry in total there was, and how many made it to this point?
  11. The only way to know definitively is to create some offspring yourself to be honest.. The different color combinations are endless, you would just have to keep creating offspring and adding new genes into the lines and then back cross to the colors you want if the lines start bottle necking
  12. So I’m not new to acclimating things to A new environment like cuttings of plants, A couple reptiles and animals, and of course fish,crayfish, and some others.. But I’m having A little trouble with some of the Neos that I have. Besides the PH for this specific tank being A little to high, which I will correct before placing shrimp in here. I can’t see anything wrong with the numbers
  13. You could’ve taken the babies out and put them into A salt/brackish water mixture in order for them to survive, then when they get older you acclimate them to fresh water
  14. Well you gotta think you don’t have any Waterfall filter with activated carbon running, are you doing any kinda water changes still? you might need A couple more plants in there, unless you do A small water change and add in something alive in there. OR add some things from your turtle tank into the new tank just for A few days to jump start everything. Maybe even just purchase Acouple feeder shrimp to throw in there as sacrificial shrimp lol. The ammonia will go down as the tank starts to cycle, I know water changes are kinda doing the opposite of what you want
  15. I’m ecstatic right now! Finally someone who actually stuck to his Guarantee! Everything packaged very carefully, and ALL shrimp alive and healthy!
  16. Nice man, I kinda just got A tank like yours. But mine has rounded edges instead of sharp corners! Are those plants from A store or from your turtle tank/pond? Do you have any snails you could use to help cycle the tank? Their waste would be good enough in my opinion
  17. So just wondering, but would lightly filtered Fresh Sea Water be usable to mix with either RO or Good Tap Water? I was thinking my Sulawesi Cardinals would have been in water just like That where they lived. I’ve been told Sea Water is Dirty, but what if I get it from about 10ft or deeper? Our sea water here in Hawaii is A little better then some places in my opinion
  18. Actually yeah I’m looking for some of these to! I’ve only had the yellow ones!
  19. Sorry about the picture quality! The camera for my iPhone XR has A cracked lense so it has A hard time focusing and producing clear pictures! This shrimp isn’t mine, it’s just one of the parents of the unknown FreshWater Cherry Shrimp babies I just received. This shrimp is actually A VERY VERY Dark Red, like A dark maroon color. But it’s Dark Yellow Backstrap gives it some contrast, this is the only one out of A group of 7 Adult Cherries that has that stripe in the middle starting at its head extending completely down to the end of its tail
  20. Can anyone tell me what’s going on here? They where all attracted to this one area, they’d go straight back to this spot even after every time I scared them away from Actually used slightly filtered(For Debri) Ocean Water, only about 15% of the total amount of water used for the tank mixed with local tap water that sat aerated for A night.. Our tap water here is good with A constant ph, I gotta look for the List of values the Board Of Water sent new. I have another tank for the Sulawesi that’s cycling, but I’ve been needing to get the 8.5mix. Everyone seems to like it a lot more the
  21. So I’ve noticed that the Sulawesi Cardinals like to stay hidden in their caves/crevices for most of the day, or atleast until I turn the lights off lol. So I read that these do ALOT better when there’s more of them, more so then Neos. Probably gonna pull the trigger and get another 6-10 of them, it’s just A tough decision because they are so much more expensive then Neos or Crystals. Every listing I’ve seen has them for about 100$ for 5-6$ of them. My brother actually started this tank in preparation for some Neos, but do to unforeseen circumstances he ended u
  22. Hey you guys, I’ve been having A very hard time finding local Neocaridina and/or Crystals and Cardinals. Located Honolulu,Hawaii. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Since shipping them to Hawaii is A No No. thanks
  23. You sure it’s an Amano,’ ? Seems like a little to many babies in my opinion
