Soothing Shrimp Yepper. I treat it as baby food, however the adults will eat it, too.

Hmoobthor that one crazy setup!

sbarbee54 I feed it raw myself, I crush it up in a fine powder and treat it like baby shrimp food or other additives. My shrimp do not go nuts like people say they do for it though. If I put a lump of it in a feeding dish and on the other side of the tank put a baby spinach leaf the swarm the leaf. Or even if I put my GEOCHEM white pellet on the other side they would swarm that instead too

Soothing Shrimp Bee pollen can be fed raw.

michael09 Can some one tell me do we just feed bee pollen to shrimp or we has to cook first then feed them?

sunyang730 I watch the video, and I have a question about the UGF. There are may holes around the air tube area. Why is that? Or does anyone know?

Hehe didn't mean to say that >.> I probably meant co2 or hydrogen peroxide but I don't remember that was from a while ago.

I'd be more worried about the shrimp dying from too much oxygen. The water either wouldn't be able to hold all the gas and it would just not dissolve into the air or it would dissolve to unsafe levels for the shrimp.

jameshill247 so i just keep cherrys and i guess they are not as sensitive but i was thinking of maybe getting a cheap air can style co2 set about 7 you know the ones you press the can down and it releases and fills the chamber up and i think you press it like 2 times a day or something to keep it topped up? i could be wrong bad side is when your away it wont keep topped up

but... i just have java moss and xmas moss that grows pretty fast anyway (also made about 20 on trimmings of it put on ebay so far) so i was thinking a little co2 could help

i do run a sponge filter and an airstone as well so the water is pretty agitated would that make a difference to the co2? i have never thought about it till reading this thread and would the o2 being pumped in to the water through the airstone and filter make a difference?

i do like the sound of a co2 diffuser for an airstone cos they look nicer the ceramic ones and the bubbles are very fine guess that would help to dissolve it quicker?

MsNemoShrimp So in terms of getting more oxygen into the water, is it better to use a very fine airstone (like a co2 diffuser attached to an airpump) or add an extra small filter with lots of surface agitation via spraybar?

Most people have come to agree that increased oxygen levels in Taiwan Bee tanks are highly beneficial.

They are just discussing what the difference might be between using airstones and using these ceramic things to introduce pure O2.

Either way, thank you for sharing.

What little German I learned in school was a LONG time ago (I think that y'all may still have been Prussian at the time...might have even been before the Romans started fighting the Germanic tribes). I would feel like a total geek if I had any of my German friends try and translate any of this stuff for me so it is always appreciated when someone shares more detailed information on German shrimp keeping with us English speaking folk.

madness Hey Jorge you sort of buried the lead on your chemistry explanation.

If you start with the whole phd in chemistry thing more people might take it seriously enough to read through it.

Jorge_Burrito Nevermind, I just read the website again, I was wrong about it releasing pure hydrogen peroxide.
