  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hey guys, So I recently setup a small aquarium for starting a RCS colony. I fishless cycled the tank and in the interim, started growing out a pearlweed carpet and ambulia forest as I thought these would give lots of hiding spots and surface area for algae films to grow. After ensuring the...
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi guys, Thinking of starting a small 2.6 gallon scape and just making it a red cherry shrimp tank. Is it still necessary to cycle the tank if I plan on only starting with 20ish shrimp? Usually I would assume so, but their bio waste should be so low and I will have a strong pearlweed carpet and...

    I started a 1.6g nano tank back in February with subpar LED lighting that came with the kit. After it cycled I upgraded to a proper LED light on a 12/12 schedule and dosed 0.1 mL of Flourish to try and get some horizontal growth for the dwarf baby tears I have planted. Within about 3 days there...
  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hello! I have failed my tank and try to fix it!:crying: Just a background story about the tank. My tank is 4years old. I had for a long time floating plants in my tank. And a while ago i took them out and i have a algae breakout. Didn't do very much about this, and i thought it will be fine...

    I would like to find someone close to my location to buy Amano shrimp. I am looking to buy 5 to 7 with quick shipping time to lessen the stress.
  6. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hey Everyone, I'm new to this forum and I just got some Cherry Shrimp in from AFA today. (Everyday, I thank the powers that be that I live so close,) Anyways, I was wondering if old, clogged filter foam media from a HOB on my 55g would be a good source of food for the shrimp. I'm planing to...

    Does anyone have any RCS to sell in the central CT area?
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hey guys! I bought 2 RCS from my LPS a couple months ago and since then, they've been happy and active (even reproducing twice), until now. Over the span of the last two weeks I have found 3 dead shrimp laying on the substrate with what looks like no legs, just the body. The first two I...
  9. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hello everyone! First post here! So I have been looking into getting some RCS, or some Ghost Shrimp. My plan is house a few colonies in 2-3 10 gal tanks, I plan on doing this just so that if something does occur in one of the tanks my other colonies are safe. The tanks I plan to have will be...
  10. Substrate
    I'm planning on a 19 litre (5g) tank, which will be low-tech and natural light (at least for the foreseeable). I've not chosen plants yet, but the plan as far as stocking goes will be a few guppies, some red cherry shrimp, and probably a few snails but nothing fancy there. The guppies are a...
  11. Algae
    3-4 Months back, I added some mossballs to my red cherry shrimp/ albino bristlenose pleco tank. Other plants in the tank at the time were just java moss. Lighting is being provided by one red and one blue 8W submersible florescent lamps. Moss growth was optimal, it grew thick within a month and...

    Hello Shrimp People! I'm looking to start keeping some Cherry Shrimp and would like advice for the best water conditions for healthy shrimp to live in. Info like what water test are needed and how often water changes are needed and what percent, water temp, plants they like best and any...

    Hi All, I started my first shrimp tank. I had a no-tech 3 gallon jar planted with 5 red cherries in it. I was having issues with the jar after 3 months and I decided to upgrade to a 20 Long. I took plants and substrate from the jar and plenty of bio-media and plants from the main tank. I...
  15. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi all! New to the hobby and starting my second tank. I made some mistakes with my first and do not want to repeat them, so I'm looking for some advice. I know this info is scattered within the forum, but I would like to have a discussion specifically on prepping a tank. I'm hoping to hone...
  16. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi, Three weeks ago I purchased 3 RCS from my LFS which I thought were all females. I have a small Fluval Spec 2 so I am not really interested in breeding shrimp because I don't have room in the tank for a colony of them. That is why I selected all females. I read articles on how to sex RCS...
