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.

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.

Thanks Han. And sorry speedy didn't mean to make it sound like it was your stock or anything. I started out with them at ph 7.8 gh 9 kh 8 unknown tds at the time. I was losing 1 to 2 a week for unknown reasons. I never saw any signs of bacterial infection or failed molt. They were in tap so idk if there was something in it. 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.

|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?|

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.

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

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.|
