  1. Does any one have one of these unique and cool shrimp? Have any tips for a first time keeper!
  2. I’m think about getting one these cool bamboo shrimp! Do you have any tips or would you recommend??
  3. Hi how are you everyone, I was wondering if you can tell me if the color of the shirmp reflex health or stress, thank you it’s a bamboo shirmp
  4. I tried to get a picture of him, but he must have known I was going to because now I can't seem to find where he hid off too. I know its a fungus, it looks like the type of white fungus logs get when you first put them in the water. Now, I made the mistake of buying blue bolts and a few other shrimp from PetCo about a week ago. I noticed one of the amanos at Petco had a green algae in her pleopods. (later looked it up and found it was bad... I didn't buy this Amano btw) I had a few deaths in the tanks I placed them in. I have learned my Petco lesson.... now... what does my tank and bamboo shrimp have and how do I go about curing it? Please tell me what I can do and buy to place in my tanks. Much appreciated!
  5. What do you recommend for supplemental food for them? Would Easy Fry and Small Fish Food be good or would that have too much protein in it?
  6. Hello! I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with using the medicine IchX with a bamboo shrimp in a tank. I've already raised the temperature but I'd like to get the ich out of my tank as fast as I can. Thanks in advance!
  7. I wanted to get 1 or 2 bamboo shrimp for my aquarium because I believe the parameters and filter flow would be perfect but was wondering if I should risk it. My betta Freddy isn't nippy and quite calm but I want to know if it would be a smart idea to take a chance.
  8. New to the hobby. Would like to eventually have a few more Bamboo Shrimp. Anybody know of any reputable sellers? Want to ensure that the shrimp comes from a legal/ethical collector or a breeder (I know they are notoriously difficult to breed).
  9. Hello every, I am new to the community and relatively new to the hobby (3-4 years). I spend hours watching fish videos/streams, reading posts on forums, and online articles. So I am knowledgeable but lack a bunch of practical knowledge from others on forums that have been doing this for decades. Anyway I have MTS as many people do. I am in the process of setting up my man cave / fish room and I have a 5 foot 125 gallon tank sitting in my garage waiting for the room. I have gone through about 80 revisions of how I want to set this tank up. Here is the recent crazy idea that I was wondering if it would work. I want to do a planted tank with primarily epified plants such as java fern with maybe a few crypts tucked into rocks. I have this idea to build it so that the light is bright with big shadows. I think I can accomplish this with large drift wood and using a single LED spot light hung over the top of the tank. I would have a section of the top covered in floating plants. To also add to the dramatic shadows. The stocking is maybe the crazy part. I want to go back to the first fish I loved and that is the honey gourami. I had a pair of wild type honeys that I loved watching. Some of you might think I am crazy but I want to do like 20+ honey gouramis in place of a tetra or barb. I have read that they are very social fish and I can't see why they wouldn't work in a large group. The next crazy part is I would love to have them with a group of 5 electric blue acara. I feel like the honeys would be big enough to not be food for the EBA. They also preferred to hang out under my floating plants when I had them so I predict they stay away from the EBA. I would probably want to put my 6 panda Garra in there as well as my king tiger pleco forgot the L number sorry. Any problems you all can see coming up with a set up like this? Also would a bamboo shrimp get destroyed by the EBA?
  10. I have been treating this as fungus but i havent noticed any improvements. I started salt dips yesterday and have completed one treatment of erythromycin and am starting a second dose Ammonia:0 Nitrites:0 Nitrates: unsure Gh/Kh:don't have a test but i know i have hard water temp:76-78F PH:7.8 Any help is appreciated! (fine red line outlines the fungus due to it being hard to see against the biofilm on the driftwood)

  12. This tank plus my pea puffer desk tank have got to be it for new tanks for awhile! I'm going...a little overboard here with new tank planning. Thanks, COVID! But I'm seeing a nice 36g bowfront on sale at PetSmart right now with a nice cabinet stand (has a crappy lid but I can swap it out for glass + better lighting) and I think it would be perfect for a main (smallish) living room peaceful community tank. I currently have 3 somewhat unhappy pygmy cories that need more friends, so I'm thinking of moving them over. I love the look of endlers and would definitely like a school of those. I'm planning on using a nice, somewhat hefty sponge filter and heavily planting, of course. I think I'd also like to try a bamboo shrimp. So, what else should I put in there to play nice with my peacenics? Gold platys would look cool with endlers, as would harlequin or lambchop rasboras. But I'd love to make room for some nerite and mystery snails, too. This will also be my first experience with livebearers so I'm a little scared of getting overwhelmed with two species of them (but I guess I could always give extra to my carnivores!) Should I just start with endlers, corys, bamboo shrimp and snails for awhile and then add another fish later? And what about substrate? I'm a little afraid of using sand and having it get compacted, needing to add MTS and having them starve out my prettier pet snails. Any opinions on "planted" aquarium substrate?
  13. You guys, I'm so silly (not willing to say I'm an idiot quite yet lol) I was previously freaking out because my bamboo shrimp were not filtering and I couldn't figure out why. I looked at everything I had recently changes and just couldn't find the problem. I started overfeeding in an effort to entice them to filter, but it wasn't working. I asked for help online in various forums and of course folks said, "well, do you have good flow going in there?" And I immediately wrote it off because "Duh! I didn't change anything with the filter orr flow, the can't be it!" Whelp I was doing some tank maintenance today and I looked at my HOB and thought... gee, that seems a lot slower than it should be. I messed with it a bit and I would say it had been at like 10% of maximum (which is what I usually use.) What a silly oversight! I had even been thinking, "Man, my hornwort is really accumulating a lot of dirt and mulm, how irritating." Duh, because the filter was running slow for some reason! Just goes to show you that the simplest things can be the biggest issue. The simple things you ASSUME are fine. Hopefully the shrimp will be happily filtering soon. I love when the answer to a problem makes so much senss. Anyone else have a silly oversight to share?
  14. Hi all, I am having an issue with my shrimp. I have a 60 gallon, well established aquarium (over a year.) It contains guppies, pencilfish, corys, and cloud minnows. They all seem to be doing OK. For inverts, I have 2 bamboo shrimp, cherry shrimp, and assassin snails. Two weeks ago I had a thriving colony of neocaridinia cherry shrimp. See photo- they were all over the food, they were chowing down on the algae on the back of the tank, feeling happy. Yesterday, I went to scoop some out for a different tank and noticed they were hard to find. Today, my fears were confirmed when I looked in the filter- there's always a few that live in there, but this time it was just carnage, tons of dead cherries. I also noticed that my bamboo shrimp shed yesterday, but it has not opened its fans to eat. Just crawling around, not by the filter as usual. (See before and after pics.) I can't currently find the other one, but there are lots of plants. Only a few cherries alive. I want to say there might even be fewer assassin snails. The cories are also acting strangely. Usually shy and hiding, always on the bottom. They have been very active and sometimes swimming mid-tank, I actually thought it was mating behavior initially, but now I am worried it could be as symptom of something in the tank. Current tank parameters of this morning: ammonia 0, nitrate 0, nitrite 0, pH 7.8. Gh is 12, Kh 7, as of 8/5. No major changes to the tank that I can think of. 3 days ago I got a couple new plants from aquarium co op, I rinsed under water but did not quarantine. And about a week ago I got some mature bio filter out of the HOB for a different tank. None of that really seems like it should change anything. I lowered the temp 3 degrees (from 80 to 77) a few days ago but was careful to do so slowly to avoid shock. I have been dosing Flourish excel daily for the past 2 weeks per directions but will be cutting that out ASAP as sources are telling me it basically kills things. I also dose fluorish twice a week, which the plants gobble up greedily. I am worried perhaps there was a change in the water from the city? Like maybe added copper, since all the inverts are suffering? Unfortunately I don't have a copper test handy. Anyone know what might be going on? Should I turn the heat back up? This was a perfectly healthy, balanced tank just 2 weeks ago. 😕 I also keep magenta mystery snails in a different tank, use the same tap water, and they are all fine.
