Hey Paulo, any tips for keeping the anubis leaves clean in low ferts low CO2 system? Love the fissidens BTW
Just keep the light low and keep on top of maintenance, don't do anything special for it really. During the time the anubias have been in the tank it has not been dosed that much, I have been dosing some DIY TPN+ over the past month due to seeing the ferns struggling a little.TBRO said:Hey Paulo, any tips for keeping the anubis leaves clean in low ferts low CO2 system?

Cheers and PM'ed!andyh said:Couple of beauties in there Paulo! If you dont mind me asking, what grade and how much where they? My CRS are breeding well now, but i would like to get a few more nice ones
Cheers, I will not be mixing lower grades with these ones, to see if they breed as it is, they also have the wine red gene in them, so if they breed I might get lucky and have some wine reds in thereNeilW said:Lovely shrimp Paulo I'm jealous . My plan of action is to sell off/give away my lower grade babies and get some higher grades off Shrimp King to improve the genepool. Don't know if you wanted to be my guinea pig and take some off my hands for free, I've never posted shrimp before so don't know how they travel so didnt want to charge. I'm not sure you would want my A/B grades mixing with your nice new S's though
Thanks, I am very happy with the shrimp also you should go for a shrimp setup in one of your ripariums, would look great and its the ideal setup for them also, low tech, plenty of cover, just use plenty of mosses underwater and thats ithydrophyte said:This is a real nice setup. I want to do a shrimp tank someday. Those new little specimens are super-cute.
I hope they breed too, I have been trying for a while without much luck, might have been due to my laid back approach to tank maintenance, now I will keep on top of it and see what happens.Jack middleton said:Jealousy is a cruel mistress, they're very nice, and I'm very tempted to order some myself in the hope that they breed, do you have any tips Paulo?
haha just get another one, just though a couple of bricks in the tank and your doneJamesM said:Grrrr, I've put off posting in here as its doing my head in I miss my shrimp tank so bad!
Cheers mate, no cherries for sale at present, I had a little accident a few weeks ago that killed 200 of my best cherries so not I had to start from what I had left, doing some more selective breeding so maybe soon enough will have some.JamesM said:Great shots Paulo, some cracking looking shrimp too mate... got any cherries up for sale? Drop me a PM if you have bud, ta
Many thanksarty said:Nice Tank. I like moss and looks nice and healthy.
I am not dosing Easycarbo in this tank any longer, and haven't done so in a long time, I am only dosing EI all in one solution from JamesC recipe. I dose the tank 2 or 3 times a week about 10ml each time.arty said:You dosing 5ml twice a week Easycarbo ? I just wonder, how i know this chem gone after 24h from water or not ? Or You divide 10ml by weekly days ?
Nice one if they are as good as the ones I received you will be very happy with them, unfortunately due to an accident with the filter I lost 4-5 of these great speciemens, lets hope the remaining breed.basil said:Some really nice shrimp there. Just ordered the 6 pack of s-ss grade shrimp from Shrimpking myself........can't wait to get them!
Just tie them down to the wood with some cotton thread or super glue them some mosses will attach themselves to the wood after some time, but not all mosses do, a great one to attach to wood is the Fissidens.niall_227 said:how do you get the moss to grow of the bog wood??? it looks amazing
