I just got my new intake strainer from Marine Depot and it's huge 6.5 x 1 but advertised as screened and it was ordered to keep the shrimp from going into the Eheim 2217 intake, but the openings in this thing are much larger and a RCS would breeze thru without even touching anything. Any ideas on something that won't restrict flow but would keep shrimp out, foam tube, screen, etc??? I'm blank.

Man, you got some dough wraped up in skrimps!!!

Well I've spent a lot of time, effort, and cash building theses custom intakes and exhaust, painted them all flat black. So this is the last piece needed and I want it to look neat and permanant, I need to find a thin walled foam tube that I can cut to lenth.

There's a pic just 5 posts or so up, a little bitty guy is behind a biggy that's molting or something, whats going on with the whitish color on this shrimp??

you mean the last pic i added? thats a baby crs and a near adult Golden Bee Shrimp, they're supposed to look like that, white shells with golden undertones ^^

Some of my shrimps white does look a little faded though, It's from having to setup this 20gal so fast and move them directly to it from the 15. Its slowly coming back again though.

It looks like it getting ready to molt, maybe because it's cropped in so tight and it 20 times larger than normal, or because it's the first time I've ever seen a Golden Bee Shrimp . Sorry about the mis-spelling!!!

Ah, yeah could be a molt soon, but the pic is NOT cropped/enlarged at all. All i did was take the picture and then I uploaded it here, that's the full normal size pic off the phone, 5-megapixels, I'm just using a macro lens on it and the shrimp are only about half an inch from the camera itself

Thumbs up

Well it's been a couple weeks now and it looks like the color is returning to my crystals again. All the shrimp are doing great! Ive counted atleast 12 crystal shrimplets all over two weeks old, almost shipping size ^^

Here's the gallery

Little peewee!


Anyone else think this one was crossed with a golden to get that SSS?


Here you can tell the color is coming back for sure


The red ruby's/wine red and bkk are still growing like champs!


Old mama RCS I selectively bred myself, she's about a yr old now.


New berried Taiwan Painted Fire Red I got recently:


And that's all for now, I should have a new camera by the end of the week so We'll see

Got my new phone so slightly better camera, I think I can see a difference in image quality here, these next images will be all 8MP photos(sans photobucket :/) as opposed to 5MP I was using for the last 3 pages of pics:







What do ya think?
