  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I've been trying to keep shrimp but they always keep dying. The shrimp simply stops moving, and then is dead. Happens very gradually over the course of a day. I know the shrimp is dead because it literally just falls on its side or up side down. After some time, if they are well hidden and I...
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi everyone, I have been having a slow die off of my CRS over the last few of months. I am fairly new to this so I am not sure how to deal with this. Tank: 28L Substrate: Fluval shrimp stratum (buffered to ~6.5) Current GH: 5 KH: 0 Temperature: 22 C Ammonia, nitrates, nitrites: ~0 ppm...
  3. For Sale/Trade
    Hi, I have extra shrimps for sale if anyone interested. These shrimps are healthy and bred by me locally in Oregon.

  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I got a batch of Crystal Black Shrimp for my heavily planted nano tank after it had been cycled and the water parameters were perfect. The shrimp did great for over a week as I was slowly introducing fertelizers. Seachem Iron, Potassium and Flourish didn't seem to bother them at all. This...

    I have a number of CBS in the SS to SSS range available for purchase. These are all right at the 1/2" to 3/4" size range. They have come out of healthy SSS parent stock. I do get a few SS-SSS CRS out of the parents from time to time, so they are not going to be PBL, but then they are not...

    Does anyone have any extra bags of UP Aqua Shrimp Sand or a comparable type of shrimp sand/soil that they want to sell? Last weekend I was swapping out Eco Complete substrate to Fluval Shrimp Stratum (that's what I had on hand) from my established 20g because I have some CRS, CBS, and...
  7. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have about 50-70 cherry shrimps, 2 crystal red shrimps, and an oto cat. I feed them about half of a shirakura wafer every other day and I know its bad to leave food in there too long but after about 6 hours they are still eating away and still working on it. I feel bad about just taking away...

    Hello! My Crystal Red and Black shrimp tank has been going through a population explosion! It's time to thin out the herd, I think :) I do keep my high grades mixed in with lower grades to keep their genes strong. So even the lower grade babies pop out some pretty high grade ones! Everyone in...

    Well no major changes, just waiting and hoping that the hc will stay rooted and hopefully start spreading. Currently I have not started the weekly flourish supplement. For now i think the eco-complete should be good enough as far as nutrients, and i wont have to worry about algae. Im going to...
