I am sure you can keep them too, you have to try some of mine and you will seeDave Spencer said:AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!! I wish I could keep shrimp for more than a couple of months. Major jealousy.
Many thanks DanDan Walter said:Awesome pics!
OlÃ¡ Joe, a quanto tempo!!Joe Faria said:OlÃ¡ Paulo,
It's been a while since my last post here in UKaps....
Glad you managed to sort the problem with your tank....you are not the first one, having problems with ADA Amazonia II, lately...
Good luck with your tank from now on and, btw great pics.
Yep its the Fissidens as mentioned in the chat, there will be some in the post for you tomorrowTonser said:Great pics Paulo - love the carpet you've got going on - is the the fissidens ?
And those black and white shrimp are too cool 8)
Thanks James, I am loving it too I can just picture a carpet in my Juwel Rio hahaJamesM said:The Fissidens looks amazing, Paulo
Is that first crystal carrying eggs? Save me some of the juniors mate!
Haha that first photo is a cherry, read the description above itJamesM said:Those orange dots look a lot like eggs to me mate... might be wrong though
haha let me know when you ready for it and I will save you some at the next trimJamesM said:I'm going to have to get fissidens off you at some point... I put mine in the large tank while I cleaned out the shrimp tank, and my yoyo loach ate it all within minutes
I only seem them before with brown eggs, so I couldn't say otherwise but then again I could be wrong hahaJamesM said:Ah, cool... is that always the case with their eggs mate? I've had cherries with white, green, and yellow eggs.
Always good to know
Thanks for the confirmationmr. luke said:THey start off very pale dark brown then go a very dark almost black colour over a short while
Yep cherries are like that, saw one releasing the shrimplets last night, amazing stuff!!SteveUK said:The Cherries I got off you, LD, always seem to have either pale or quite bright yellow eggs
Hi Mark, success with CRS congrats so far no luck here!!!Mark Webb said:What a great thread! Just read through. I have a Juwel 60 which I am having some success with breeding CRS. I plan to soon strip it down and replant.
Do you continue to use the original filter supplied with the Juwel?
What filtration do you use in your nursery tank?
Shame about the cherries, mine breed like crazy and I now have over 300 at least, if you want some let me know.Mark Webb said:Thanks but congrats are not in order. I put 6 Cherry and 6 CRS in my tank and a month later the 6 cherries were gone (although they lasted long enough to photograph for my avatar!) and young CRS appeared. Just lucky! I now have the bug and will replant with moss for the shrimp and have another go at Cherries.
Cardinals would be best kept separate as they need different water parameters to breed and higher temps than the CRS.Mark Webb said:Would also like to try CBS and Cardinals having seen them in your thread.
Fluval 305 will be fine with a sponge on the intake, I would suggest leaving it there for about a month minimum, maybe two to be on the safe side. Aquaball is full of sponges inside so shrimp can't get sucked into the pump.Mark Webb said:I am planning to use a Fluval 305 external with sponge on the inlet to stop shrimp being sucked in. How long would you suggest running the Fluval to mature before removing the internal Juwel filter to make more space? I must say having looked at the Aquaball it looks Shrimp friendly in so far as they cant be sucked in.
It was there in the earlier shots, I have removed it when I changed the substrate.Mark Webb said:I think I see the filter box still in your Juwel? Have you considered removing it if you are not using the filter?
