okay I lied I did add more stuff in the tank for some reason I went mad for crypts a few months ago and bought crypt nuri and cordata KR01. I really like my KR01 but it has black beard algae anyone now how to get rid of it? Everytime I look into my tank I hate looking at it. Should I try dosing a little hydrogen peroxide? Or is that bad for the shrimp?
also heres a picture of my 10g that was in the process of being set up last month. Like I said I took a plunge into the whole UGF thing thats been going on lately. I have to say the waters been super clear so far.
i see you just made one long UGF pipe, i too am going to be using an UGF in my new tank (hopefully itll get here by friday) but im thinking of going with a complete circle instead of just one long pipe with holes.
Anyone know which is better? i believe with the complete circuit you will not lose water pressure, but im not 100% sure.
I think either way will work. As the holes closer to the intake get clogged it will just draw more water from the holes farther away. I had the same question and that was the answer given to me :P. Makes sense.
Of course, making a completely circle will be easier to keep your matrix material confined.
Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.
Yeah either ones fine when I redo this tank I'm going to try a complete circuit to test it out for myself.
So since I moved most of the rilis to the 10g I got in more shrimp the other day from ohbaby714 let the party begin. When I looked in the tank I saw a few molts so I'm hoping some of the guys got lucky. Right now this tank has a few mothers, some babies, and some bee shrimp that are boring.
So any takers on wheather I should dose with H2O2 around the crypts that have BBA or should I uproot it and dip it in H2O2?
So heres a picture of what the 5g looks like the moss needs a trim and the glass needs to be cleaned. As I said before there are only a hand full of rilis left that are boat load of babies and 2 berried mother. And also a few bee shrimp are in here as well, while I was taking picture one of them kicked the can
Does anyone know was parameters these guys thrive in? I feel like I'm loosing one every 2 weeks....
and i would love to have all that overgrown moss in your one picture. as of right now i have zero moss
the color has got a little bit better like i said on another thread its a long process of selective breeding
as of now i nothing has really changed besides more babies a bit more most and the dying off of my bee shrimp . probably they came from really hard water and my ph was around 6.5+ and plus i was doing massive top offs go figure.
the 5.5 now is different i ended up redoing the tank after transfering all the rilis over to the 10. the tank houses some clear blue rili males and a few A/S grade CRS. these guys are so interesting to watch, they're like walking candy canes.
the 10 now is what i refer to it as my shrimp sin city. it was crawling with babies now those guys are juvis and waiting for them to mature. okay so i added another filter so its running duel canisters, when i was adding the other filter i almost pulled out my UGF. i was so annoyed but it was my fault i get overzealous at times. i also added some flame moss and a modded breeder box. I'll post up some pictures within the day or two when i'm free.
