Getting Taiwan Bees
My wife caught me looking at photos of some BKK today and said "those are amazing you should get some!" Haha, my pleasure! So I'm now beginning to get ready to buy some TBs in the future. Can someone point me towards a kind of primer on keeping them?
I plan on keeping them in a 15 gallon. I have a 55 gallon cycled tank as well, but since I'll be starting with only 5 or 10 shrimp I figure they'll never find each other to breed in that large a tank. Thoughts?
I'll be using Salty Shrimp GH+ with RO water. I normally use an inert substrate, but I'll need one to buffer the pH with TBs. Should I use Amazonia? Africana? Other?
I've read I'll need mineral stones. One for 10 gallons sound right? And then I'll need ideas on food. I currently use blanched veggies, algae wafers, and powdered spirulina. What special shrimp food will I need for adults as well as shrimplets?
And in terms of breeding, I'm not going to know what I'll get when they breed, right? It's completely based on the genetic line, but there will be few actual TB offspring and most will be mischlings?
Of course, please feel free to ignore my questions and point me towards any sort of primer or guide.
