When You Do Your Water Changes Do You Sqeeze Out Your Pre Filter Sponge? Are You Get Plenty Of Airation?
I have a large sponge filter that I clean about once a month. It does not get very dirty. I also have a 350 GPH canister filter with a sponge filter covering the intake in this 46 Gal tank. I clean the sponge on the canister filter every 2 weeks. Plenty of aeration with the sponge filter giving off air bubbles and the canister filter is hooked to a spray bar.When You Do Your Water Changes Do You Sqeeze Out Your Pre Filter Sponge? Are You Get Plenty Of Aeration?
I feed them Shirakura and Mosura specialty food once a day, 3 bars of the food. I also add a pinch of the mico-organism powder everyday.How much are you feeding them? What are you feeding them? How many times a day are feeding them? If you over feed them they can die from ammonia, and it wont even show up on your test kits. I dont care what any of the so called pros out there say! I use charcoal packs in my Eheim filter 2213& 2224 and charcoal bamboo in my tank and my water has never been better plus the charcoal clears up ammonia just incase you over feed them.
I have about 100 crs and ramshorn snails. The food is always gone within a hour or so. That's why I give 3. they seem to be hungry and the snails always are.How many CRS do you have eating off 3 bars? I have about 100 CRS in my CRS tank and they only need 1 1/2 sticks of food. I think 3 is way too much unless you have lots of CRS and other shrimp. I hear so dont quote me, that
sometimes your ammonia from over feeding wont always show up on the test kits, and thats because its gone before you can catch it.
No i didn't take a picture. I should have. If I have anymore deaths I will get a picture.Can you take a picture of your dead shrimp?
No I do not keep crays in my CRS tanks.Is this the tank with your crays?
