Re: My shrimps

Hello, Welok,
I like the pictures of your shrimp. A say thanks I could not put again. No permission. What a nonsense. It is probably not wanted that I will continue to participate. Can not do anything. No matter.
All the Best

Re: My shrimps

Susan, I have about decided to go with cherry shrimp in the 40 breeder. Have developed fin rot in the tank now. I only have fish in it to create a well established tank for shrimp. I am treating the fin rot with tetracycline. It has turned the water a very dark berry red. Very pretty but shocking to look at.

My question is..will the tetracycline harm the shrimp or am I going to have to start from scratch? I don't know if the algae and slime on the glass will be red and poision to shrimp or what. Any ideas???

Vreugy

Have a blessed day

Re: My shrimps

That is not what I wanted to hear. :( Do I have to change out everything, plants, substrate etc? May just set a 10 for a few shrimp and get them out of my system.

Thanks a bunch

Re: My shrimps

Haven't decided yet. I do know I am tired of looking at this blood red tank. Can barely see thru it end to end. May skip the last dose and clean it today, or at least put in charcoal to start clearing it. Beginning to get frustrated with it.

Re: My shrimps

Changed 50% of the water yesterday. Lightened the red color a lot, but it is still raspberry red. Even put in extra charcoal. It has helped a little, but I think the slime on the glass is stained and will have to be cleaned. Think I will go with this tank and fish for awhile. I don't really want to set up another tank. I do have a nice place for a ten, but just not ready to set up another. Oh, the plants you sent are doing fantastic. No melting of any of them. If the tank wasn't red, it would sure be nice to look at.

Hope you are well and enjoying your tanks. I sure appreciate all your help and advice.

Vreugy

Have a blessed day

Re: My shrimps

For about 1 year I also have shrimp. I am a Beginner. When I bought it, I saw it. They have very fine white sand. Shrimp sand. I could see exactly, even the very small ones. I really liked that.
When cleaning (every week) the white sand is advantageous. I take all things out (filter, driftwood, water salad). Then I suck the ground off, until he is white again. Half the water. The shrimp are satisfied with the procedure. They have increased a lot. When some small shrimp have been sucked off, they come in a white bowl.
The water is turned. The dirt in the middle is sucked with small hose and the small shrimp come back into the aquarium.
