Update 9/4/2017

Just got back from a vacation to London and Berlin. This is an update on the status of my shrimp tanks and the impact Hurricane Harvey has had on my hobby. Because of it, I'm homing (2) ruby tetras which I'm nervous about, but I'm not going to not help a friend in need.

Update 9/21/2017

This week I decided it was time to clean my double sponge filters. I'm actually curious to see how often you guys clean yours (for those of you that do). I also only cleaned one and not both (I have a double sponge filter) to avoid a micro crash.

10/5/2017 - How To Catch Shrimp!

I'm planning my first shipment of shrimp, and the first step to that is to figure out how to catch them without swinging around a net for an hour. In this video journal, I go over how I build a DIY shrimp trap to do just that

10/9/2017[censored]- Shipping Shrimp!

Today is the first shipment of shrimp I'm making for a good friend of mine. I'm really nervous about it, especially because here in Texas it's in the low 90's, but I'm hoping I prepared well and there isn't a delay!

For my first shipment, all arrived alive and healthy! I was pretty nervous with the heat in Texas, but the cold pack did it's job

That said, I'm looking for advice on my next project! https://youtu.be/YS6jw4f9oXg

11/28/2017 Update

Had a few shrimp deaths because of a stupid mistake... Over here in Texas, the weather has been fluctuating like crazy (80 in the afternoon, 40 at night). Normally, my house is temp controlled and the ideal temp for my shrimp, so I used the heater in that tank to warm my curing rock for my upcoming saltwater build.... big mistake.

I think because of the temp swings, a few shrimp died because of it. I've learned my mistake >.<
