Flash don't bother shrimp. My shrimp pose all day for me .

What shrimp are you looking up params and feeding regiments for?

All my Caridina cantonensis tanks use RO remineralized water while my Neo tanks use hard tap water.

TB tank
pH 6.5-7
TDS 160-200
temp 72-75F

CRS/CBS/Tigers
pH 7
TDS 200
Temp 72-75F

Neos
pH 7.5-8
TDS 390
Temp 72-80F (no heater/fan all year round)

I feed mainly blanched spinach, barely pellets, NLS crustacian, and Mosura Excel. for babies I use Jaime's (ravensgate) bee pollen and Mosura Bio Plus.

Hope that helps.

Yep, that's everything! Thanks so much! The tank comes in Friday, and I'm setting it up Saturday, so hopefully with some luck by the time I have everything set up and ready you'll have the blue pandas up for sale! Thank you so much for everything!

Bee pollen makes a big difference for my Neo tanks. The pollen turns into powder and lands everywhere in the tank making it very easy for the babies to find food packed with vits for survival and good growth.

I only do once a week, and a pinch goes a long way. Technically after buying, it should be refrigerated as it starts losing nutritional value slowly over time.

When buying, make sure you get at the very least THAT YEAR'S pollen to maximize nutrition. Ie. 2013

Wow incredible photos and shrimp. They remind me of the "prawn's" from District 9. Keep up the great work.

Very nice pics man. I love the shadows. What do they spit out when they breed?

More shadows of course. I've got quite a few babies from that big momma already.

All crystals are kept in those conditions. It actually brings out the white much more in their shells. It was a recommendation from my source.

Nick,
Great pictures. What is the moss called you have in most of your shots? For example in the most recent shadow TB shot.
