  2. Newish to the hobby, and looking to buy a dozen Red Cherry Shrimp. Looking to buy locally from the Seattle area, for pick-up. Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi there, I am Vinny and this is my planted aquarium. it is a 20 long with a screen lid on top. I have had fish since I was nine years old, but I have never had a planted aquarium before. I have always wanted RCS in my tanks as a clean up crew, so that's what I did. When I put these guys in the tank they were all over cleaning plants and scavenging. And then I added fish about two weeks later... I added a golden wonder killi fish along with some small tetras. It seemed like the killi was hunting the RCS so I removed him from the tank. Now ever since I added the killi all my RCS have taken refuge in this plant shown in the picture bellow. The only time I see them leap out of the plant is at night time around 11:30pm... I have no idea what's the matter with them, but they are molting and still look very healthy. I am just concerned about the change in behavior. Any reply would help me so much! Thank you!!!
  4. I have just made an account to ask this question... I have had a 30 gallon fish tank Right now its empty and now i am interested in to keeping and breeding red cherry Shrimp. By Researching on line i got to know that first i need to setup tank with all these steps. first need Mineral, Bacterial product under substrate and add some plant then i can introduce Shrimps in the tanks. Is it true i need to do above steps!!! Also help me in this. 1,Which product shall i buy for Mineral, Bacteria. 2,Which substrate is suitable for red cherry shrimp. 3,how long to keep water without shrimp and how to know water is ready for shrimp. Also if some one can suggest water testing kit will be help full(like PH and nitrate testing)
  5. So on some of my cherry shrimp, I have noticed a white streak on top of the body running from head to tail. What is this?? 95% of my shrimp are fully red (no white) and I think they would be near or basically painted fire red cherry shrimp.
  6. I would like to buy 25 to 100 Red Cherry Shrimp. I've had bad luck with shipping, so I would love to find someone who lives within 100 miles or so of Nashville TN that would like to sell some excess home raised ones. To avoid shipping stress, I'd like to drive to pick them up. I'm most concerned with finding really healthy ones that haven't been shipped around the world already. I'm flexible on grade & size VS price. Greg
  7. hi guys.. I am new here.. I am from chennai,, India I have a cement shrimp tank.( some what like a miniature pond... with lots of plants and snails and a sponge filter... the shrimp are breeding..

I am concerned that the loach will eat the baby shrimp?? they have lots of space to hide ... but. anyway...I am not sure.
  8. Hi everyone. This is my first post to the site. I've been keeping red cherry shrimp in my tank along with 3 guppies for about 6 months now and over the past week I've noticed something strange. As you can see from the picture it seems as though this shrimps head has come detached from its body. This happened about 4 days ago to another shrimp and I woke up the next morning to find that it had died and I don't want the same fate to happen to the rest. If there's anyone that could help me diagnose the issue or tell how I could prevent it further that would be great. Thanks
  9. 10 Bloody Mary Shrimp. This sale is for 10 Bloody Mary Shrimp, however I'll include an extra one to help off set any DOAs. ~2-4 months old, some are getting or have their first saddles. My water parameters: Gh: 7 KH: 6 pH: 7.4 and 8 after off gassing. The temperature in their tank was 74 degrees F. They were fed Hikari Crab and Shrimp diet, bloodworms, Omega algae wafers, zuchini, peas, and were very fond of Indian Almond leaves. Native algae was also present in the tank for their consumption. I have 2 packages to offer. $45.00 plus $14.50 s/h. 72 hour heat pack included and they'll be shipped in insulation (the paper, blown-in non itchy kind).

  10. Concept: Small circular lagoon terrarium, four parts terrestrial, one part aquatic. Stripped and resealed the bottom portion of silicone for an Exo-terra 18x18x24h. Without any decoration, at highest possible water volume, gives just over 5 US gal for a pool. In the back right, a column for outgoing water to the filter is siliconed to the sides. Three areas are fortified with a mesh material, and will be the only exposed areas. Closeups showing cable ties to keep the tighter mesh material flush with the light diffuser panel. Three cans of "Pond and Stone" Great Stuff spray foam to cover all three sides, careful to create crude ridges, ledges, and crevices where possible. Most important is the waterline, a specific outward bulge that will create some dark areas near land. Moss will be growing from these surfaces, and can creep into the terrestrial portion, but also continue to grow into water. Next is the waterfall on the left, which needs to be able to carry most of the water down into the pool without creating a major current. Spray foam takes a long time to fully cure. During that time, I took the opportunity to order some moss from a local online provider for dart frog supplies. This moss looked relatively generic at first, but there were about 5 varieties. Each of these have flourished in the viv. I ended up keeping the moss in containers for about a month or longer while the rest of the background was being carved. This was achieved primarily with my rotary tool and a series of different attachments. Black foam dust is actually quite heavy and vacuums quite easily. I tried to keep the natural shape of any ridges, and kept in mind the flow of water for both the waterfall, and the dripwall down the back and right side. I'm using a product called Spyra, by Folius, for the pool area. This is a water wicking fabric, and moss can adhere safely to it. Gorilla glue and pins, holding in place to ensure some water and moss will be directed onto land. There will be no soil in this vivarium at any time, so water is free to go wherever it pleases. Once carving is finished, I began to use an additive-free grout to create rocky textures throughout. I added black acrylic paint, to give variety and contrast, but chose against using any other colours to enhance the rock effect. This grout covers about one third of the foamed surface area. The waterfall and dripwall are both coming off a Turtle Clean 15 canister filter meant for turtle tanks. They can pull water up a great distance, and in this case, more than 24". The pump is at the very top, and sends the water back in the vivarium with a short 8" return tube of the same diameter. It splits immediately, half going to the waterfall, and the other half is sent down tubes that go around the top, and are foamed into place. After a successful first water test, with all plumbing working as hoped, I moved onto the substrate phase. The rest of background material is two parts peat moss, one part dried green moss, which itself was a mixture of two or three different mosses. This was all put into a blender, and turned into a very fine substance. In small patches of about 4" square, Gorilla Glue was spread out using a cheap black foam paintbrush. After 5 minutes, I generously heaped the substrate onto the glued area and pressed down firmly. This phase took almost as long as the carving phase, for the small patches. After about 5 minutes working time, Gorilla Glue begins to become very tacky and is about to cure. In a larger patch, the first part would be curing before the end is getting tacky. This stuff doesn't spread very fast, moves like honey, and sticks to nearly everything. It expands 3 times during the curing process, so once it becomes tacky, it will grab onto the dry peat moss mix easily. Gorilla Glue is also fully waterproof, so this is a perfect application for a dripwall. I was able to add plants after the background had cured, which was just 24 hours after the last patch. This is the waterline showing where moss will wick up from the pool onto land. I chose a lighter coloured gravel to simulate a river bed, but in hindsight, my shrimp would be more visible (thus more comfortable) on something dark like Fluval Stratum. I've since added small round black stones, and the shrimp seem to swim from rock to rock during the day. Both of those Anubias pictured are sparkling clean now. This is a very short .gif of the dripwall at the base, dripping into pool. I let the entire tank cycle for about 2 months before adding shrimp, and there are no other animals in the tank, aside from microbacteria. There was a decent amount of algae at that time, much of which is now long gone. The java moss is starting to take over, and needs a trim, but that's where many of the shrimp spend the daytime and graze off it. I feed with Omega One Shrimp and Lobster for now, so I need to pick out some different foods and treats at some point. I don't feed them too often, as they seem to prefer the tanks natural nutrients anyway. Thanks for reading! I encourage questions and comments! I have terrific water test readings, though I don't test for TDS. I've had some successful molts but no one is berried just yet. Only been a few months, so I know I have some time for that.
  11. Hey guys I had question about possible mixing of these guys. I bought 2 red cherry shrimp the LFS and one looks like red rili. I am trying to set up a red cherry colony. Will this cause issues? I will post pictures when I able to a good pic.

  14. Hello and thank you all for reading this. I have a 10 gallon aquarium that I have been working on for a little over a year now. I set up the tank with CaribSea Eco-Complete 20-Pound Planted Aquarium Black substrate and did a dry start method to get a full carpet of baby dwarf tears. After a few months of the dry start method, I added in some Seiryu Stone rocks and finished off the tank by filling it up with conditioned water and cycled the tank for 30 days. I added in a batch of 10 RCS after the tank was fully cycled and the first batch lasted for about 2 months. They slowly started to die off. After the first supply of RCS died, I added in a batch of 20 more RCS with hope that these would some how survive longer. Well, after about a month of these new RCS, only 10 are still around. They die very slowly, and almost impossible to notice if any died away or not by how slow it is that they dwindle off. I try to remove the dead shrimp as soon as I see them, but I may miss some here or there because they get lost in all the baby dwarf tears. Here is the thing. I can't understand why they are slowly dying off. First things first, I do a test on the water every 2 weeks using the API Freshwater Master Test Kit and I always get satisfactory results. 7.2-7.4 PH, 0 Ammonia, 0 Nitrate, 0 Nitrite. I have a heater that keeps the shrimp at a constant 80 degrees F. I don't feed them anything because they are able to live off of the bio film. Occasionally I may throw in a few shrimp wafers (3-4) they are super, super tiny. But I never really see them going after them. I do a 20% water change a month. They have no predators, they are alone in the tank except for some small snails. I did a copper test just this afternoon and it reported 0 copper in the water. The only thing that I possibly can think of is maybe there is a PH spike at night from the CO2 but Im really doubtful of that because I have very hard water (which buffers the PH) and im running a lower than average co2 setup (1.5 bubbles a sec). Can anyone shed some light on what might be causing these shrimps to slowly dwindle off? Thanks.
