    Aggressive Neocaridina?

    Help! I got four neocaridina (2 yellows, 1 cherry, 1 rili) about 2 months ago and added another cherry and a black 2 weeks ago. Shrimps had all been molting fine, eating well, and exploring the tank. Last week, the largest shrimp, a yellow female, started displaying aggression. She would grab...

    Bloody Mary Shrimp Disappeared

    Hello! So my Bloody Mary that I bought recently has completely disappeared for 2 days now. I don’t see a carcass or its molt so I checked inside the filter, cholla wood, and behind the leaves of the plants today with no results of a hiding shrimp. My tank has a betta (who is completely fine...

    Caridina Shrimp Help

    Hi Everyone-- About one month ago, I decided to start a caridina tank. I'm at a loss and before I buy more shrimp, I need to know if it's my water quality or not. One month ago, I converted my neocaridina tank into a caridina tank. I did this by relocating my neo shrimp to a different tank and...

    Attack of the killer shrimp

    Sorry for the false alarm, no one was attacked. But I do have a question concerning these shrimp: Some 2 years ago I bought 5 green Babaulti Shrimp from my LFS, and one that was of brownish color. I never had any other shrimp species in my aquarium, nor did I buy any after that. Some 6 months...

    Is this a baby shrimp? Will it survive cycling?

    I got this lil guy as a hitchhiker when I put some new plants in my tank. I've had him for a few days now and each day he increases in size quite visibly. I thought he was some sort of weird water "bug", but now that he's gotten bigger he looks like a shrimp, with his tail curled underneath him...

    Do you need root tabs for these plants?

    Hi there I have a few plants that are planted into seachem flourite without any root tabs at the moment. If root tabs are needed, would Osmocote plus root tabs be good? Also I have Red Cherry Shrimps in my tank and was wondering if the Osmocote plus would affect the shrimps in anyway since...

    Ghost Shrimp dying?

    Hi guys. I am not anywhere close to an expert on shrimp and have always had ghost shrimp. Recently I bought 10 ghost shrimp to add to my colony of 6 in my 10 gallon. One died during a water change, managed to jump out and did not find him in time. One from the new batch died, which was not surprising...

    Shrimp Experts Wanted

    Hello all! So I am relatively new to shrimp-keeping (I’ve had ghosts in the past to help with cleanup, but they’ve never lasted very long). I’ve always gotten great advice and kind feedback on this forum so I thought I’d see what you all thought! Right now I have an established planted 3 gallon...

    Feeding shrimp (without also feeding snails?)

    This might be impossible, but I'm curious if there's a magical balance to be struck. I have 15 red cherry shrimp and 2 ramshorn snails. (Yes, I know that the snails will breed, and yes, they have already laid a clutch of eggs after just 4 days in my tank.) Is there a particular food, or...

    Blue Babies Everywhere

    Hi Everyone-- I recently had about 5 blue mamas give birth at the same time so I have baby shrimp everywhere (yay!) I've let them grow out now and are probably a month old. It looks like I've got some mixed colors though and wondering if I should cull these tanks to have a blue rili tank and a...

    Drip "Acclimating" Entire Tank to Lower TDS? (without killing shrimp)

    Hi Everyone, Wondering what your thoughts/opinions are on putting a bucket of water over a tank and using the drip acclimation method to slowly add water to the tank in order to lower the TDS. Would this be an okay method to avoid killing shrimp? I don't have access to RO water to "cut" my TDS...

    Help Advice on inert substrates?

    I'm trying to pick out a substrate for the planted tank I'm working on. I intend for it to be a community tank with Amano Shrimp, Guppies or possibly Endlers, Neon Tetras, Nerite Snails, and possibly a Honey or Dwarf Gourami. My tap pH is 7.6. If I'm not mistaken 7.6 pH is within the accepted...

    Female Betta Sorority with Shrimp

    I have a 65 gallon tank and am considering adding 5 female bettas. Concerned about adding them with the 20+ shrimp I currently have in there (they are red, yellow, orange, and blue and aren't high quality so they are slightly translucent). They have ample places to hide but feel comfortable...
