  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hello, I'm a proud owner of a 55 gallon community freshwater tank and a 10 gallon quarantine tank. In my 55 gal I have 4 albino corydoras, 4 julii corydoras, 4 panda corydoras, and 10 ember tetras. I bought 10 grade AA cherry shrimp in February, and now I can only find 3. I have relocated them...
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I am very, very new to shrimp keeping and aquariums in general. I care for a tank in a local library. The tank is a 10gal that was being cared for in a local pet shop. There are 7 neon tetras and I believe 12 dwarf shrimp. The tank came planted with a variety of live plants in sand, with a...
  3. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    I have a 7 gallon planted tank (sand substrate with root tabs), a few amazon swords, java fern, and suswassertang, dragon stone. The tank has been set up for 1.5 years, and has an explosive blue velvet cherry shrimp population. Weekly water change of about 1 gallon. The swords and java fern are...
  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hello! As stated, I'm a newbie to shrimp. We have a seasoned, planted paludarium tank that we finally felt was ready to add shrimp after supporting two snails and a few black neon tetras for a little over a month. We purchased the cherry shrimp a few days ago, and I know the tank parameters...
  5. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi everyone, I’m trying to achieve good parameters for my Cherry Shrimp but I am having trouble. My tanks GH is 125.02ppm and the TDS is around 330pmm. Is the GH too low and how would I raise it without further increasing the TDS? Also, is the TDS of 330ppm ok for Cherry shrimp and would it...
  6. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Fairly new to owning fish and noticed while I was walking past my tank tonight I noticed the tail end of a cherry shrimp lying on the floor of my tank. Pretty sure it wasn’t there less than a few hours before. Not sure what could have happened to it. We have 6 cherry barbs, one of which seems to...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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.
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
