  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So I accidentally started a 30gal planted tank a few months ago while trying to grow lotuses, and it's turned into somewhat of a shrimp-and-tetra paradise. Today when gazing upon the accidental fruit of my labors, I noticed my largest Amano shrimp fanning its underbelly- and spotted clusters...

    Hi everyone, I know this a common topic to find info about, but I just wanted to double check my future stocking in my new fish tank I'm setting up. The size of the tank is a bit odd: 26 x 19 x 12 inch. It's around 25g. (if calculated correct from cm and liters) It's a custom made tank to fit...
  3. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    We have a well-established tank, heavily planted, with many tree limbs and rocks for hiding spaces. We added 3 Amano shrimp to the tank. 2 died in the first week because they kept climbing into the intake. Now the 3rd keeps "sleeping" inside the pump nozzle. How they get in is beyond me since...
  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    My lfs said that these are amanos but I'm not too sure now that they're under better lights. They don't have the markings. I don't really care what kind they are as long as they eat algae and won't reproduce. The biggest is about an inch and the smaller one is about 2/3 inch. Smaller one is...
  5. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi all I've been reading this site for a while. Learnt a lot from everyone but just joined as I have a question. I recently added 8 Amano shrimp to my 30 litre planted tank. We got them from two separate LFSs a week apart. When we bought them they were all pretty much the same size although...
  6. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi, So my Amano gave birth to one zillion healthy looking larvae. I need to transfer them to brackish water, but I have no idea how to make those water. I read that salinity of anywhere between 20-32 is OK. But can I just take tap\RO water and add table salt? epsom salt? or do I need to buy a...
  7. Algae
    There are probably posts about this already but I couldn't find any! I have tanks between 8-16 gallons. What are some good algae eaters? I have lots of plants and I don't want them eaten. So far I have ramshorn snails and amano shrimp, what are some other goods species? I want something for the...
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Anyone know the copper toxicity/copper LD50 for Amano shrimp? I want to make sure I won't kill them with my ferts! I read somewhere that copper LD50 is 0.07ppm but not sure how accurate that is
  9. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I've seen some mixed reviews on this topic, and I wondered if anyone currently has the two and would be willing to share their experiences. Alternatively if you HAD them together and no longer do. My aquarium is a 5g low-tech medium planted. I have three assassin snails right now, and that's...
  10. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi, My usual fish store's shrimp supplier went bust, so I tried a new one and bought three Amano shrimp. They were very small but they said they were just young. They looked all the same, clear bodies etc. Ive noticed a few weeks later one of them is now dark brown with a line down it. Is this a...

    Hallo! I've begun ADA cube garden 30х30х30. I've used full system ADA (PowerSand, Amazonia, PowerSand and other additivies) + lightning Aquasky 301 + superjet es 150. I've used RO Spectrapure. First week: change water 50% + 2drop (each of it: phyton git, green gain, green bacter - every day...
  12. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Yup, I have read a lot of other posts on insanely high TDS, but I am posting again to see what more I can learn. Been running a circa 8-gallon planted nano with 5 RCS and 5 Amano. Cycled for about 6 weeks and then introduced the shrimp via drip method about two weeks ago. Got a TDS meter this...
  13. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    More out of curiosity rather than having a problem, but why have my Amano shrimp suddenly exploded in growth? So I've owned 3 Amano shrimp for a little over a year. They were all pretty small at about an inch. I was never worried because they molted regularly and ate well. I figured maybe they...
  14. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I've been entertaining the idea of breeding Indian Whisker shrimp, Amano shrimp and Nerite snails. These all have larval stages in common. I was wondering about keeping a brackish and freshwater quarantine tank always on each about 3 gallons so they are conditioned and covered in algae/diatoms...

    Looking for 30-50 of these guys from a reputable seller. Price wise looking at about 1.50 a piece
  16. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Since BCA is selling some short nose shrimps, how are these different from amanos? They say they are more friendly alternatives, but do they also eat clado?

  18. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Just got some new amano shrimp in and I noticed a few of them have a blueish tinge to them. Is this a normal trait? Does it come from food? It's kind of neat. Sorry for the awful picture

    Looking to get a couple amano shrimp for my tank. I can't really find them anywhere.
  20. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So. I've never had much luck with Amanos in the past. Something was in the substrate that kept killing them off. Couldn't get a grip on what it was. They would always mass die off the day after I acclimated them (drip, plop and drop, tried different types of acclimating). I've re-done my tank...
