Update:

6 CBS (S Grade)
6 CRS (SS Grade)
^ All successfully acclimated no deaths

Eheim 2213 Classic Canister Filter installed =D (will replace sponge prefilter with a stainless steel one in the future)

modded my HOB filter (to lower output flow and increase biomedia of tank)

and now for some pictures:

- Breeder Box



- HOB Filter Mod





I'll upload pictures of the tank with the eheim and some pictures of the shrimp when my internet isn't so slow and when I get them sent to me from my cousin.

Since, apparently my camera got dropped in Calgary cause someone decided to toss it... sigh* lens is broken so yeah.

Hm.. I'll have to check out getting one of those soap dishes. Do you place covers on your tanks? Or do you think having the soap dish under the output will effect the covering?

Not sure what you mean by covers/covering lol

All I did was put the soap dish into the tank by suction cupping it against the back of aquarium so it gets in the way of the AC50's waterfall

I don't think it could effect anything other than what we want it to do (lower flow of HOB)

Nice shrimps! I recently started my CRS career too, and I've got to say that they re the absolute best shrimp I have ever kept.

Thanks, and I have no idea how to change the title of the thread (I doubt I could lol)

If I can, tell me ;D and I have to agree that the CBS/CRS are the best shrimp I've ever kept too but lol I've only kept RCS before these guys XD so it isn't saying much but nonetheless these guys are AWESOME.

So cover, like a glass cover over the tank to reduce evaporation and keep unwanted things out of the tank. Something like this:

Seems the soap dish won't affect the ability to fully close the glass cover !

As for editing the title of the thread. Click on your first post and click "edit" then click on "advanced". Then you'll see an option to edit the title on the top!

Ah those glass covers lol. I had one for my 10gal tank long ago

and yeah it won't affect the ability to fully close the glass cover because it'll be submerged inside your tank underneath the HOB.


(not an up to date picture btw)

and thanks for the thread edit protocol

I like that little breeder box you have. I don't have a lot of knowledge about breeding shrimp (which I why I keep having to buy more, hah!), but do you just put your berried shrimp in there until they have their babies?

You could put berried shrimp in there until the eggs hatch OR you could put a male and a female shrimp in there for selective breeding purposes (:

for the meantime, I'm going for mass breeding (so I won't use the breeder box yet). I want to hit about 150 shrimp then I will probably selectively breed the SS grades.

So today I decide to look through thee ole tank to check up on my CRS/CBS but I found something that I never expected to see EVER again.

I found a RCS from my previous 10 gal tank... and I'm thinking to myself... no way. Has to be a super sick CRS/CBS but no it was a RCS fully faded orangey red colour all over (at one point I tried to play it off as an underwater spider falling into the tank or some trick of the light lol).

and I was in disbelief for like 5 mins staring at it. It was grazing on the inside of my driftwood. I'm just hoping that it's the ONLY RCS in the tank lol. I didn't take him out cause I was stunned and decided to leave him be because that is pretty huge accomplishment... I mean this guy... was in the tank from day 1 (when I transferred the driftwood/coconut cave [with the java moss] in my other tank)

I know it isn't uncommon for shrimp to be transferred along with moss but the things this guy has been through

RCS truly are the tanks of the shrimp world lol JUST because:

He literally handled a tank with a TDS of 0 (0 gH 0 kH) for like a good long amount of minutes (the day I changed from tap to RO). Handled a giant parameter change gH 12 kH 9 pH 7.8 to gH 4-5 kH 0-1 pH 5.5-6.0 (current tank parameters) and gosh do I feel bad unknowingly putting him through that...

I guess his prize is to live amongst the CRS/CBS in super clean filtered water lol...

I had a RCS baby do that to me on some moss, had to be about a day or two old, through a tank of cycling, and lived amongst my CRS in a 5.0pH tank.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.

He'll be a god among the CRS/CBS. The CRS/CBS babes should bear his seed!
