  4. Hey all, and thanks for helping. I am going to put some leaves in my shrimp tank so they could feed off the microorganisms. What kind of leaves can I use? I live in the country so in my yard there are oak, apple, peach, elm, and pecan trees. I was also wondering if leaves from blueberry bushes would work as well. Thanks!

My name is Andy and I live in foggy Pacifica, California where the water quality and weather are perfect for breeding shrimp. I currently have 9 different types of shrimp which I will randomly post for sale. I will post prices soon. Here is my current stock: Red Cherry Shrimp Blue Diamonds Golden Bee Taiwan Bee ( blue bolt, wine red, bkk,shadow panda, panda, red bolt) Mischlings PFR CRS A-SSS+ Sulawesi Cardinal Tibee ( TT x CRS) & (Aura Blue X Snow White) Malawa Taitibee (coming soon) Here are some pics of my shrimp I also collect rare species of moss from all over the world.

It is high in amino acids, natural vitamins and minerals, for health, growth, colourfulness and good reproduction of the animals. Shrimps are omnivores and as such they also need animal proteins, which they usually find in mostly invisible microorganisms and microbes in the substrate. In order to grant a sufficient supplies of such microbes, Takayuki Shirakura developed the rearing feed » Chi Ebi, which serves as a nutrition basis not only for baby shrimps but also for microorganisms and thus support a healthy development of the population. These little helpers furthermore dispose of feed residues and excrements of the shrimps which lie deeper down the substrate and thus clean the substrate. If feed residues and excrements are not removed, shrimps may die from the evolving poisonous substances. Baby shrimps are particularly at risk. This is the reason why Ebi Dama feed by Shirakura has a very firm consistency. It will not fall apart during feeding and sink down to the floor unused. In relatively newly set-up aquariums in which the substrate is not yet sufficiently active, it is recommended to add high-quality feed, for example artemia, once a week. However, it is also recommended to use » Chi Ebi - rearing feed from the very beginning since it significantly accelerates the genesis of the important microorganisms and microbes. Composition Seaweed, Cereal, Vegetables, Vegetable by-products, Spirulina Analytical Constituents 29,6% crude protein, 4% crude fat, 11,9% raw fibre, 22,1% crude ash, 4,9% moisture Usage Feed Ebi Dama twice a day in small amounts, but only as much as the shrimps can eat within one or two hours. If all shrimps are full, feed leftovers should as a principle be removed from the aquarium. 80g bag pictured Shirakura Ebi Dama Special - Supplementary feed for shrimps and crayfish is a herbal product. It is high in amino acids, natural vitamins and minerals, for health, growth, colourfulness and good reproduction of the animals. Contrary to regular Ebi Dama, Ebi Dama Special also contains wild cabbage, several types of sea algae and is particularly high in calcium. Composition Seaweed, Cereal, Vegetables, Vegetable by-products, Spirulina Analytical Constituents 30,8% crude protein, 3,9% crude fat, 12,2% raw fibre, 19,5% crude ash, 7% moisture Usage Feed Ebi Dama Special twice a day in small amounts, but only as much as the shrimps can eat within one or two hours. If all shrimps are full, feed leftovers should as a principle be removed from the aquarium. NEW Ebi Dama VIVID is a new food in the Ebi-dama 'Special' series specifically designed to strengthen coloration, to be fed weekly with a normal diet of vegetables and other Shirakura foods. It contains natural color enhancers like astaxanthin and calcium, as well as natural vitamins and minerals! Feed this in conjunction with Shirakura foods and clean cool water to see your shrimp as colorful as they've ever been! Ingredients: Seaweed powder, natural vitamins and minerals, astaxanthin, calcium Usage Feed Ebi Dama Vivid twice a day in small amounts, but only as much as the shrimps can eat within one or two hours. If all shrimps are full, feed leftovers should as a principle be removed from the aquarium. Biseibutsu No Moto is a mixed feed, especially designed for baby shrimps with lots of important ingredients, which baby shrimps need particularly within their first few weeks to ensure a healthy growth. Apart from that, is also supports the growth of microorganisms and the mostly invisible microbes which dispose of food residues and excrement and are an important part of the shrimps' as well as of the baby shrimps' diet. How popular and important this is for the shrimps can be witnessed if you carefully dig up the substrate with your hand. It often only takes a few seconds until the shrimps will gather in exactly this spot to cover their need for animal proteins by eating the now available microorganisms and microbes. In order to ensure this food basis permanently and in sufficient amounts, it is recommended to regularly feed Biseibutsu no moto (Please also see feeding recommendations). Studies by students of the University for Fisheries Science in Hokkaido/Japan have shown that in those aquariums where Shirakura's Biseibutsu no moto - rearing feed was used, significantly more baby shrimps survived and also developed better than in aquariums without the additional feeding of Biseibutsu no moto. In their microscopical research they discovered that the population of the microorganisms which are particularly important for baby shrimps was more than ten times higher when feeding Biseibutsu no moto than in a comparable aquarium without Chi Ebi. Further observations and positive side effects were the enhanced colour of the shrimps as well as crystal clear water. Usage 60 cm aquarium: 1 level spoon* per day 100 cm aquarium: 1 heaped spoon* per day Vary depending on how many animals the aquarium houses *Spoon included Shirakura Red Bee Bacter is a beneficial bacterial supplement to help along an aquarium that is suffering from mystery deaths, low rate of survival for babies, and low activity in shrimp. Aids in the decomposition of organic matter in the substrate and water. Not only the decomposition of nitrite, ammonia, and organic matter, also is food for beneficial bacteria to aid in the growth of juvenile shrimp and increase shrimp survival rate. Usage: Comes with 6 tea bags packed with bacteria, use 1 teabag per 50 liters (~13 gallons), and let it soak for 2 days before removing the teabag from the aquarium. The bacteria will remain in effect for one week.

  9. Am going away for a couple of days. My son will be caring for the dogs but not the fish-tanks. He may be staying here or taking the dogs home with him so can't rely on him stepping into the breach with the shrimp. I know my other 2 tanks will be ok for the time I'll be away - however the shrimp tank has had a few ups and downs so I wanted to run by you all how I'm planning to leave this tank. Will add some snowflake food on the day I leave, will turn the light off as that's what creates the heat mainly, turn the fan off that helps cool it down, but also cause evaporation and I won't be here to top it up. Got a heater in there in case the temp plummets tho not really anticipating that it will. Does that all sound ok or is there something else I could or should be doing?
  10. I tried the snowflake food for the first time. Dropped in a half pellet and within minutes it looked like this. i. I think they like it.
  11. I have a 5g with 3 dozen assassin snails. I plan to start breeding neos in the same tank. Will they compete for food? Will having too many snails reduce the biofilm for the neos to feed off of? Or should I remove all the snails?
