Forumsnow Good deal, just didn't want you to think I was bad mouthing you. My tap is very hard also but I think there was something in it they did not like. Since switching to di water I have had less and less deaths. I've had them since the beginning of dec and actually just saw my first saddle last night. I think I only have one male left but I'm not going to get more as I don't want to risk mixing new bacteria with the tigers.

They are currently in ph 7.2 gh 6 kh 3 tds right around 200. The tigers and the neos seem to be enjoying this much better as I am seeing a ton more activity. Also I have seen almost 10 successful molts and in 2 weeks I have managed not to kill a single tiger. I am really hoping they keep doing well and don't come down with a bacterial infection like happened to ravensgate. Time will tell I guess.

I now keep them in tiger conditions, well almost tiger conditions. I have been slowly lowering the parameters to better suite the tigers. They are now at ph 7.2 gh 6 kh 3. I want to get the kh down another degree which next weeks water change should solve. I drip the new water in on wc as to not shock the shrimp even though I am only lowering a degree.

Once again not trying to say anything was wrong with the supremes on your end. I think I just was not doing something correct.
No need to apologize. I was only trying to get more info so I could possibly help you out. I'm not sure what your tap params are but I can tell you my tap is hard. I just measured 7.7ph in both my Yellow and Orange Neo tanks, with a TDS 390.

Since you've had them, have they been producing for you at all? If they haven't that's a tell tale sign of them not liking the tank conditions.

speedie408 What water params are you keeping your Supremes?

h4n good to hear about the OEBT, but odd with the reds....

Forumsnow 2 weeks now and not a single loss so far Han. Fingers crossed lol. They are growing at a pretty good clip and are constantly out and foraging. Really awesome shrimp. On a bad note I'm down to 5 supreme reds from 12. Not sure what's going on thought cherrys were supposed to be bullit proof??

h4n How the OEBT doing man?

Forumsnow Thanks overgrowth, the hc seems to be loving the lower light for some reason, having to trim a section oncea week.

That is just one of the options. Just search iPhone macro lens in amazon.

Kinection Which model is it? Fisheye?
I just want one of the lens. :p
Or could you give me a link?

Forumsnow I don't think so as the lens are tiny. But they would work on any phone or iPad I would think. Took some more.
This is a nice blue taken this morning, lights off with a large flashlight, on a ial.


Little lighter blue


This little blonde loves the camera.


I think this is a malawa can anyone confirm this? I have 3 of them in there, had 4. But one berried up and died 2 days later, this was like a month ago.


A nice supreme red. This lens was the only way I was able to see one was actually saddled.


And finally my dwarf puffer Whitey Magee.

Soothing Shrimp Do you think this would work on a regular point and shoot camera?

Forumsnow Amazon. There are a bunch of them. They just stick on with a magnet. It came with the macro, a wide angle and a fish eye. I think it was like $5 with $5 shipping. It came from Hong Kong so it took like 3 weeks to come but totally worth the wait. It's no $3k setup macro pics, but it is way cool to be able to see the shrimp better than your eyes can.
