    Crystal red shrimp breeders

    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...

    Ooooh My First Dedicated Shrimp Nano.

    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...

    Your Opinion please on adding RCS to a CRS tank

    Hello 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...

    Nano or Sponge Filter

    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...

    Good heater for a Nano Tank for CRS

    Hi 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...

    Baby CRS and CO2

    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...
