Greetings from South Africa, Cape Town

Smart Shrimp

Recommended Posts

A shout out from South Africa and I live in Cape Town. I started out with Aqua Scaping and came across shrimp being used to clean algae and the rest is history lol.

The hobby is very new still in South Africa and I think I am the first to bring the shrimp in and to resell comercially. Still learning the hobby and found this site "awesome indeed"

I already have a question for the pros, PH pen which brand is the best and what is the life expectancy of a probe if you have about 150 tanks that being 60 liter ones with a weekly water change of 20% being done?

Thank you,
