"King's never die."

Fire tank
Garage Tank
60 gallon shrimp tank
x2 emmersed tanks

Fire Tank, main tank, everything grows well for most part in this tank, gets the most maintenance out of all tanks
Garage tank, just a bunch of bits and junk around, is basically a farm tank
60 gallon shrimp tank, cardinia-pinto mischlings and mischling taiwan bees, 2 x blue dream (1 pair)
emmersed tank, predominantly monte carlo
emmersed tank, predominantly s grade testing syngonanthus

Thats the sum up the summary of this journal
I'm moving over to this forum from my main forum because i have felt unwelcomed or met with negativity there so here i am...need to post somewhere, need to share somewhere..

specs to come
gorgeous pictures to come

Could you elaborate on you tibee stock?? I'd love to get a colony going with different kinds of shrimps being produced by the original stock. I understand it's an experiment in genetics, but where would you suggest getting good starting stock? I'm not familiar with anything other than cherry shrimp. How are you preparing your water? I've got a cycled 11.4 that I would like to use, but I'm assuming I need to use RO water and remineralize it. Is there any product that has specific dosing guidelines or do I need to spend the money on complex testing supplies? I thought about doing carbon Rili shrimp, but the different shrimp offspring would be really cool.

I got no tibee stock, no tigers no genetics of tigers in there at all. All my stock except a wine red, blue bolt, snow white are pretty much a taiwan bee mischling or a pinto mischling or pinto mischling hyrid.
I suggest getting good stock from any hobbyist who breeds, importers could have disease problems and other such things.
For water I just use pure ro and remineralized. I just top off and no water changes. Do not overfeed at all though. food every 3 days or so and i try my best to remove united food.
check out blue diamond, salty shrimp gh, etc...I had low keys, didn't really like it much as it didn't raise tds much

Pretty much clean stable water is where you want it for shrimps especially in cardinia.

Who you getting carbon rili stock from?

I don't know who I'm getting the carbon rili's from. I'd rather get them from a hobbyist, but no one has them. I was thinking of ordering 5 from several different online sources unless you know of one sources with really good stock. I would like to be able to establish a colony in my other tanks with culls so I think this first tank I'll stick with neocaridinia. Ill be folowing yours though as i would really like to get a tank going with some of the gorgeous caridina species in the near future.

Rostick555 was always my go to for Carbon rili's. I guess these days theres not one major guy in the shrimp industry on this forum...

Big players like eric martens, eric lucas on Facebook you can try out...
