Maechael Glad to hear your shrimp are all doing well, and that's a beautiful shot of a happy red shrimp.


Hoping to maybe, possibly, if the timing is right, grab some cherries soon.
My luck with money time and availability is poor at the moment haha.

Ok thanks. I'll have to try that out. At first I thought I lost all of them but they just have good hiding spots.

crazydog64 Well out of the original 20 fire reds I can find 4, I'm not sure what is happening and never see any bodies but the OEBT seem to be doing well so thats good I guess.

Maechael Shifting them however you can, so everything's comfortable and happy.
Best of luck with your shrimp.

GMYukonon24s Ok thanks. I'm thinking I should definitely move my guppies now into my 55.
03-19-2013 01:44 PM
crazydog64 I would say about every 2 weeks 25%
03-19-2013 05:14 AM
Maechael Regular water changes I've heard people talking about is something like 25% every other week I think?

Normally using remineralized RO water.
Top offs are a good idea too.


And no troubles cutting in, especially when you have an important question.
03-19-2013 05:06 AM
GMYukonon24s Ok thanks. I just want to make sure I don't do too much.

CharleeFoxtrot My total experience to date has been with Neos so take this FWIW. Hard to know, except that shrimp like stable water parameters and low nitrates so you have to do water changes as often as you'd need to to keep the nitrates down with water that matches pH, gh, etc.
