5 Gallon RCS Journal


I have an established 5 gallon bow front, aqua-tech 5-15 filter, newly planted fissiden onto ssm, java fern lace plant, and java moss around sponge on filter, 13 watt cfl, 1 cholla wood, no heater, temp stays around 80 F all year round tank, ammo & trites has stayed at 0 while trates are 10. I started with 3-4 rcs, they molted & multiplied regularly. I don't think I did enough water changes this past summer; thus, causing die offs ....I was down to 5 about 1-2 weeks ago, 2f & 3 M. One of my oldest F died roughly 1 week ago, she was berried and due any day. Now I have 1 female left... on the bright side she was berried to until 3 days ago.... 2 days ago I spotted 2 shrimplets and today noticed 3...with all hopes, I think she saved my cohort.....I am hoping to get my numbers back up and overflowing....any suggestions will be heard...

Update: My shrimplets are still alive and doing well...I purchased 10 more yesterday, with 9 looking outstanding in color and they are babies/juvies...very happy with purchase. Moving along, once the long drip acclimation was done, I placed them all in, they were happily swimming all over the place...good sign....this morning I ran to check on thet tank and I saw 2 had molted, another good sign thus far.....hoping I am successful at keeping them.....I am still uncertain :-( about dosing excel/glut,nitrates, &csm+b....I guess it will be trial and error since no one ever explained much to me in my thread I made.
