Just wanted to share my ADA 60-P Taiwan Bee. Very quickly, tank was set up early Jan. 2014 with ADA AS for the substrate and left to cycle/mature for 4 months. Tank is layered with biomeida rocks similar to seachem matrix capped with about 4in of Aquasoil. Tank is utilizing both Eheim 2115 & UGF. The UGF is driven by a small water pump that is routed to my breeder box and fed back into the main tank. Tank has only moss including my favorites such as fissidens, mini fissidens, fissidens geppi, rose moss, and mini pellia.

What crypt is that on the prl tank, and nice looking shrimps/tanks!!
The crypt you see is a cluster of C. Flamingo. If memory serves me correctly, I was one of the ten original to participate in the group buy over at APC and one of the five or six people to successfully transition the tissue culture. This specimen was displaying a more pink color prior to moving it into this higher light and fertilized tank. I'm working on achieving the signature pink that C. Flamingo is known for. I have a few daughter plantlets to work with now.
Thanks Nick. I kept the TB inside a breeder box for a while. They bred like 2 times for me whilst inside the breeder but not all the babies made it. They're thriving inside the 60-P. It's much bigger and the parameters is much more stable. I must have great genes because a majority of the babies are either Shadow Pandas or BKK 1-2 Bars. I'm even getting Bolts from these guys. Not too shabby.
Those are some awesome shrimp How difficult are they to care for? what parameters do you keep them at? I hope to try these guys out in the future
Taiwan Bee aren't much more difficult than CRS or other bee shrimps. Stable parameters is important. Specifically, I use ADA AS filled to about 3-4in. I always use an UGF but it has to be layered with something in between the UGF and soil. Ada AS isn't great if it comes in contact with an intake as it breaks down quite easily. Temperature should be in a cool range of 70-74 degrees. Ph:6, TDS: really depends on remineralizer product, gH: 4-6, kH: 0.
