Ch3f's All Things Shrimps **updated 08/17**


Hi Folks.

Just wanted to share my ADA 60-P Taiwan Bee. Very quickly, tank was set up early Jan. 2014 with ADA AS for the substrate and left to cycle/mature for 4 months. Tank is layered with biomeida rocks similar to seachem matrix capped with about 4in of Aquasoil. Tank is utilizing both Eheim 2115 & UGF. The UGF is driven by a small water pump that is routed to my breeder box and fed back into the main tank. Tank has only moss including my favorites such as fissidens, mini fissidens, fissidens geppi, rose moss, and mini pellia.

These are Nick's Xin/Feather PRL. I've been breeding and culling these guys pretty heavily for over a year now. Females and Males have beautiful white and sexy red legs. Very happy with the purchase.

The crypt you see is a cluster of C. Flamingo. If memory serves me correctly, I was one of the ten original to participate in the group buy over at APC and one of the five or six people to successfully transition the tissue culture. This specimen was displaying a more pink color prior to moving it into this higher light and fertilized tank. I'm working on achieving the signature pink that C. Flamingo is known for. I have a few daughter plantlets to work with now.

Thanks Nick. I kept the TB inside a breeder box for a while. They bred like 2 times for me whilst inside the breeder but not all the babies made it. They're thriving inside the 60-P. It's much bigger and the parameters is much more stable. I must have great genes because a majority of the babies are either Shadow Pandas or BKK 1-2 Bars. I'm even getting Bolts from these guys. Not too shabby.

Thanks Jerry! Working on saving money to get a Nikon D7100 and a 105mm Nikkor Micro. One day I'll be able to take pictures like Nick.

Thank you! These guys are great. A lot of silly characters inside this tank.

Side note:

Some silly waterchage behavior. Anyone else experience sunbathing Taiwan bees?

Thanks Matt! Never thought of it like that but I guess you're right. Hahaha. They're definitely climbers.

Taiwan Bee aren't much more difficult than CRS or other bee shrimps. Stable parameters is important. Specifically, I use ADA AS filled to about 3-4in. I always use an UGF but it has to be layered with something in between the UGF and soil. Ada AS isn't great if it comes in contact with an intake as it breaks down quite easily. Temperature should be in a cool range of 70-74 degrees. Ph:6, TDS: really depends on remineralizer product, gH: 4-6, kH: 0.

That's pretty much it. Pretty easy.
