  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I got a batch of shrimp from several breeders about 1 month ago. The first day, or three they were fine, then the deaths kept happening. I was losing 1 per day, or 2 per every 2-3 days. I didn’t know my water was soft (almost RO water, practically.) Since then, I have added Seachem Equilibrium...

  3. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have quite a few blue velvets, and I've noticed that in all of the pictures of small aquarium shrimp that I've seen, I've never actually seen a purple variation. I know the basics of color say that red and blue make purple, but I also know that red cherry shrimp and blue velvet will make...
  4. My Nano shrimp tank

    I setup this Nano Vase tank 2months ago and hope to breed cherry shrimp in it. Water parameters look great so far. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Thought I'd share this cool shrimp I found in my tank, looks like a black and gold rili cherry shrimp. Havent seen any like this before. I am going to try and setup a tank to breed it. Only thing is I gotta find it again, havent seen it since. Anyone know if its a male or female? I think its a...
  6. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hi all, I haven't been the most diligent about keeping up with my cheap tank, but I don't think I'm doing an awful job either. I have a cycled 10 month old 5g tank with 8 Chili rasboras in it. I've got a mix of plants - a lot of surface plants to keep the fish comfortable. I do need to cut some...
  7. Planted Nano Tanks
    I'm a newbie, and looking to set up a nano planted tank with the long-term goal of keeping cherry shrimp. I'm planning to keep low-light easy to care for plants with an organic miracle-gro substrate. Question is, would one of these tanks be better than another? I'm considering: Imagitarium...
  8. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hello everyone! first time posting on the forum, ok now to the beef. I have had this 5 1/2 gallon tank full of cherry shrimpies and MTS. At this point it been 6 months without a water change I just top it off with RO water whenever the water level drops a little bit but other than that the only...
  9. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I'm working to stock a 29g planted community tank and have been contemplating adding shrimp for a while now. Currently, there are aout 15 MTS, a bunch of ramshorn and bladder snails, 2 nerites, a mystery snail, a school or corys (6), and a school of lambchop rasboras (8). The plants...
  10. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So I have a handful of cherry shrimp in their own planted shrimpy tank. I did a water change yesterday after removing a piece of cholla wood. I had boiled that but it clouded the water and had this thick slime stuff all over it. Ammonia was .50 before the change and is now at .25 and all other...
  11. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Ok- so this is my second go at attempting to keep cherry shrimp. The first time I got shrimp, I received about 30. Within a little over a week- all but one shrimp died. During that timeframe I did a considerable amount of research to make sure that wouldn't happen again. I switched water...
  12. WTB/RAOK
    Looking for someone who has roughly 10-15 stems of Staurogyne Repens and 10-15 high grade Cherry Shrimp. Please PM me if available. Would prefer someone who has both. I am located in Central FL. Must see photos of shrimp to purchase.
  13. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I've noticed these white/clear worm like things under the head of the cherry shrimp. I don't know if they are a parasites, or if they are just part of the cherry shrimps anatomy. Can someone help me? I don't want to salt dip them if it's only a part of its body, but it looks like a parasite to...

    Seriously? You're promoting sales on an external site *and* outside the For Sale section? You've been a member since 2014. You know better. That's why this is public instead of private. Removed your Amazon links, locked the thread. Don't do this.
  15. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi there! I'm new and have not been able to find my specific topic in the forum, apologies in advance if it already exists! I've got myself a little 4-6 month old cherry shrimp that appears to have lost some of his legs :( I am not sure what happened but my guess is that he tried to molt but...

    So my apartment is getting treated for bedbugs next week. I've been living here for almost 3 years with no problems, and now it feels like my life is over. But anyways, the landlord has exterminators coming in to do a spray treatment. My question is, how do I prepare my aquarium for this? To go...
  17. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So, I have a 8 gallon planted nano tank with three tetras. I'm planning on getting 15 Cherry shrimp and adding them to my tank. Is this too many shrimp to keep in this tank, or will they be fine? If anyone could answer me that would be great. Thanks.
  18. Low Tech Forum
    I need a tank that I can neglect completely -- no feeding, no nothing -- for at least three weeks at a time. I am very sensitive to sound so I need it to be no-air-pump. It will be near a window so light conditions while I am absent will be low to low-medium indoor daylight. I can give it...
  19. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have a 5 gallon tank with about 60 RCS which I got 10 days ago (mixed juveniles and adults). Also in the tank there are 2 green babaulti and ~10 babaulti babies (one was berried when I got them, been in the tank for about 8 months now). Also there was an amano which I removed 2 days ago...
  20. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I got my first group of Neocaridina shrimp the other day. I had a brief encounter with Amano shrimp before they climbed out :( I'm interested to know what grade these are. They were just labeled as cherry shrimp but I asked the guy at the shop and he said that the breeder they get the shrimp...
