  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    The ad basically said it. Just yesterday i added 5 neon tetras into my planted tank. The tank has been established for 3 to 4 months now, and has about 7 cherry shrimp. Before the neons the shrimp where swimming around eating whatever they can find. I added the neons in the evening and this...
  2. DIY
    Why: Because I've heard small shrimp crawl and get sucked into either the small slit on the lower half of the tank, or through the large grate at the top. I had some fine mesh laying around, so I cut it to the width of the filter area (4 2/8”). The mesh is a grid anyways, so you can just cut...

    People keep saying that BM are more red than PFR, but I don't really see it. Anyone have input on this?
  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I lost the last three today out of my twelve. I did a full set of tests just now. It might be related, but I also lost two out of four Nerite Snails last week. I also have been unsuccessfully trying to establish a Trumpet Snail colony. I also have a hard time keeping most of the Otos I keep...
  5. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi all, I've just come back into the hobby and decided to try out shrimp, I was gifted a small tank and decided cherry shrimp were the right way to go. It's a shrimp only tank. I've got both red cherries and the yellow variety. I was wondering if anyone had experience with the different colours...
  6. Tank Journals
    1st January 2015 I have to be honest and say I've never been hugely into fish and aquariums. I'm more of a 'furry-animal-that-you-can-take-for-walks' sort of person ha. But I've slowly been won over by a very sociable betta, beautiful little Celestial Pearl Danios and the fascinating shrimp my...

    http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/album.php?albumid=18450&pictureid=71682 Hopefully this link works.... I bought some "mixed variety dwarf shrimp" from my local lfs a couple months ago, and afteracclimating, the rest of my shrimp show either red cherry or crystal red. However, this one just...
  8. Tank Journals
    Its been over a year since I last set up a tank. After dreaming about owning another I decided to dive in. My budget was $200 (give or take) I wanted a modern look with submersed filter. I think The Eheim Aquastyle 4 is a great tank for two reasons: the lighting is adequate for plants with room...
  9. Low Tech Forum
    I want to set up a low tech planted tank for Cherry Shrimp but I have a few questions. When I first 'scape the tank and begin cycling is it plausible to use a temporary DIY CO2 system to jumpstart plant growth and then stop when time comes for livestock? possibly to bring pH back up? I do not...

  11. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Does anyone know a cheap (under 3e$) type of small red shrimp? I have some blue rili shrimp and they apparently are not compatible with cherry shrimp but I can't find a reason why? Thanx! :)
