Hi guys, although I'm a new member here I've been following UKAPS for a few years now and I have to say I'm a huge fan.
I'm trying to get hold of some crystal red shrimp and wondered if anyone has any that they'd sell me. Not looking for anything super high grade just with nice colour and...
my xmas project is to sort my kitchen tank out and get some chocos (Sphaerichthys osphromenoides) . As the current tank in the kitchen hosts 40-50 high grade CRS/CBS / taiwan bee and given the chocos need 26/27c has anyone successfully kept the 2 together and bred both in the same tank? It will...
OK.. too late for verbal diarrhea.
too late.. or should I say..too early? lost in time
but came up with this.. some plants will go in.
dunno yet what kind of.. no name yet..
any suggestions on plats welcome (top right side corner and left side of the tank)
Time-lapse will follow tomorrow..or...
This weekend I stripped down my 30L Fluval Ebi | UK Aquatic Plant Society as I am setting it up to finally try CRS.
I have bought myself an RO unit, put Ebi Gold in for substrate and added lava rock and redmoor wood. So far the planting is rotala and pelia from my stripped down tank but I need...
Here are few pics of my TMC signature scape at 8 months.
Its been designed with shrimp in mind, with a selction of smaller plants and mosses. Its for keeping my shrimp not breeding as i have specialist breeding tanks for that.
Tank: TMC tank and white cabinet 600mm x 450mm x 300mm
When I think back a year ago when I first purchased my first ever tank, a Juwel Rio 180, the assistant in the fish shop said about shrimp and that he bet (cheekily) that I would get into it as it was the new thing. At the time, I thought he was mad and I nodded with a smile and moved back to the...

I did a spot check on my fish tank today and in particular the internal Juwel filter. The reason I check the filter is because I normally find a cherry shrimp in there.
To my surprise I found 2 quite small Cherry Shrimp in the filter. So I am guess someone has been a bit busy!!! :cigar...
Hi Guys & Gals
I am a couple of months into my new shrimp tank which is populated with plants and CRS and all doing well.
The nano tank I got came with a Dennerle nano filter which has worked well to date. It silently ripples the water surface in my low tech tank. Oxygen is supplied by a...
Hey all, set this up a couple of days ago for some more Taiwan Bees.
Nothing too fancy and got a few things that need tweaking like the detail stones etc but the idea of this one was always function over form.
Tank- optiwhite 40x30x30
Filtration - eheim liberty
Lighting - 11w CFL with 9w par38...
Well, I made a post like this here about two years ago and can't seem to find it again.
So I though I would start a new one as I know you all have some awesome Shrimp tanks out there.
Don't be shy let's see your masterpieces :)
I recently bought a second hand tank, filter, heater and light. Which I have been bringing up to speed for a CRS only shrimp tank. All going well but I am wondering if the heater is up to the job.
It is a Fluval nano heater with no control and goes straight into the tank rather than...
I am now officially 1 year into my new hobby of fishkeeping.
You can see what I have on the signature, but in summary its a planted tank, CO2 injected and contains community fish, Amano and Cherry red shrimp.
I am in London on Tuesday and was thinking of popping into the ADC shop where...
This is my latest project. Please excuse the poor photo quality taken with my phone.
Crystal Red Shrimp non-CO2 aquascape by George Farmer, on Flickr
It's going to be dedicated to crystal red shrimp (CRS) and I hope to get them breeding. The tank is in my office at work.
I've been having terrible luck with the survival rate of the CRS fry in my shrimp tank.
Im wondering if it has to do with the CO2 injection, as all my other parameters that i can test for a pretty much perfect (55L aquarium, tetratec 400 with intake sponge, tds 150, nitrate 5-10, nitrite...
Okay, this is a Journal dedicated to the rescape of my ADA Mini M which can be found here.
The rescape has been coming for a long time as I was never really happy with it in comparison to the Raw nature feel I wanted to give it.
The Title for this Tank is 'Pretty Stream', and the...
after my first planted scape and the introduction to the enjoyable antics of shrimp, ive decided to dedicate a tank to them.
Looking at various nano set ups i stumbled upon this Aqua One set up, which at 40 x 40 x 40cm, 55l is a little larger than some, but hopefully that should offer...
Yes its been a while but i am starting a new journal for my new scape.....
I have been busy playing with stones and sand and have got something i am happy with for now :geek: Probably get tweaked a few more times yet.
I am using my ADA 60p, combined with Dragon Stone, Sarawak sand...
