err, hello and goodbye.  :o  ;D  ???
I love watching these colorful little snails wander around the tank.
26C for me, been up and down and that gives the best results imo.

Why are you restocking your tanks, shrimp breed prolifically, did you have a sell off/die off that they are all gone now?

There is sure a lot of stuff suggested to put in tanks, if I put everything in there would be no room for shrimp, lol.

You need a tank, some water and a few shrimp, anything else is optional. :)

Quote from: tva351 on December 29, 2018, 11:12:44 pmI have Neo's in tanks at home in straight Adelaide tap water with a tds ranging between 400-700ppm and they thrive. Neo's are generally undemanding of the water parameters as long as they are kept fairly stable.

They are very easy to look after, I will agree.

Quote from: tva351 on February 13, 2019, 03:30:28 am$10 each for top of the line red cherries. If you pay anymore your a mug. I  just purchased some new Caridina sp. "Blue Bolts" from Sydney they were  $100 for 10.

So your talking painted fire reds at ten bucks then? And where the blue bolts juvies? How much freight from Sydney?

Umm, my target parameters are whatever comes out the tap, seems to work though. :)

Tanks - Racks / Leaking tank ?
February 02, 2019, 03:32:41 am
Uh oh, my three foot rimless tank has sprung a leak, nothing serious just looks like a bit of silastic shrinkage so I will have a go at resealing it. Anyone know what silastic I should be using for this, any advice appreciated.  ;D
