    Hoping to get some advice from those knowledgeable here. Haven’t had much success yet at the shrimp-keeping game. I’ve had a cycled 10 gallon, planted tank for about six months. Cherries and carbon rilis only, along with a somewhat largish population of ramshorn snails and two small apple...

    I just realized I may have done something stupid... I have a 5 gallon glass beverage dispenser with a brass spigot. Inside the jar is a 1/2" brass nut that secures the spigot to the jar. Also in the jar are approximately 7 shrimp, a lot of plants, and about 2" of Eco Complete. Is the brass a...

    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

    Ok I am planning to get a new aquarium filter and I was just about to purchase when I noticed this on the box "Pure Copper Motor". Would this be safe to use in an aquarium with shrimp in it? I know copper compounds and medications containing them are toxic to invertebrates but I am unsure as to...

    Hi again, So having realised that my rainbowfish have a nasty case of velvet disease, I'm now struggling to work out what to treat them with. I was going to use Seachem Paraguard only to find out that it's not available in Australia. Cupramine is but it's not plant safe. I have a choice of...

    Hi everybody! I am currently redoing several tanks right now and have several nice plants that need to find new homes in other tanks. -However- since some mistakes were made (i.e. buying swap-meet plants with snail eggs, and rehoming freshwater clams from local pond with planeria, and not...
  10. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So after loosing all inverts I have tried in my two cycled tanks, I decided to test for copper. Straight out of the tap my copper reading was 1ppm. Am I doomed to not keep inverts? I am not able to buy a RO unit, so that would not be an option for me at this point. Is there any reliable...
  11. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Newbie here, I wanted to ask, if it's ok just to prepare tap water with dechlorinators for CRS - tank WC's. I don't have access to RO water nor the budget and am trying to see if I can start a CRS tank. I've read from several articles that said tap water just needed dechlorinators. I'm not sure...

    I have a heavily planted tank which will soon be occupied by a few shrimp colonies. Normally, I dose my planted tanks with the Tropica MasterGrow formula which has been working out well. With the addition of shrimps however, I am looking to change my ferts to a different solution (or fert...
