  1. Hello, I maintain 3 Parathelphusa Pantherina and I realized that they did not eat enough. They eat the dead leaves of my plants, but there are few in the aquarium. They also eat planorbs that I maintain for them. But not the pellets of Novo Crab. I ordered Hikari products and I hope to be more successful. I noticed that the carrots seem to please them. So, I was wondering what works for you to feed them? Thanks to those who will have information on the subject! P.S .: I do not speak English, sorry if my English is rough!

I'm looking for any good soluton(s) to feed PRL shrimps and srimplets in my 30L tank, at holiday time (10-12 days) with special food for shrimplets.

  4. Hello everyone! I have been experimenting on proper methods to dose GlasGarten's Bacter AE powder. Since I have a small tank and few shrimp atm, i dose every other day and only about a quarter of the prescribed spoon for my 15 gallon aquarium. I have tried: 1) pouring the powder on top. It seems that the powder takes a significant amount of time to dissolve. 2) Pouring the powder into my Eheim surface skimmer and let it diffuse throughout the tank. I was wondering which method was better, or if I should be doing it in another way? I appreciate you responses to my quandary.
  5. I like to experiment with food. I have tons of Moroccan Mint growing in my garden. I sometimes fed the leafs that were left after preparing tea. This time, I just poured boiling water on the leafs and let them sit in the water for 1 minutes before putting a branch into the shrimp tank yesterday. My crown shrimps (Caridina sulawesi) did not eat it immediately but today they are all over it.
