    Our crappy shrimp

    Hey are you guys gonna bring any of the black shrimp tubes/houses to the meet?

    Our crappy shrimp

    Shrimps are always hard. I find it hard to get them really interested in food. I've read that 'Max Growth' works really well. Interested to know if/when your start breeding

    Fancy Plakat Males from previous Gen.

    I love the metallic blus with mustard fins and a white mask. Will you be selling?

    Wild Scapes

    it might. I would try and hide it on the back left like the filter and heater on the right. Would add couple more reeds to cover it. But on second thought I hate noisy air pumps so maybe i'll sit on it

    I like your too, you got a more rugged natural look going there. Mines not really much effort - its really low maintenance. since i started it in Feb, only ever been cleaned by BN and snails & until recently was feed mainly by the auto feeder. Was thinking of putting the Hatch n Feeder in there.

    Why the stress?

    I would tend to agree with 3 of the points above 1) Get a timer, it could take a month but they will get used to the schedule 2) Set the timer to turn on after dawn and turn off before sunset. So the light is not what is actually waking them up. 3) Get cover it make the fish come out more, Floating plants, submerged plants, moss, driftwood, caves, ornaments etc... I use just LEDS and doubt that it is too bright, but if you think that it is infact too bright I would simply buy, a floating plant which would naturally dim the light (frogbit , Lillies, duckweed, etc..). But I doubt it is too bright. I would add one more point. Feed them on a schedule in an open part of the tank. This will take a while but they will learn this too and it will help get them used to coming out when you are around.

    PantyHose save baby shrimp?

    Thanks I tried sponge filers But I hate the noise so I don't use them. I like my tanks silent. Well my CRS are really heavily with lots of brown eggs. Hopefully there will be some white specs soon.

    PantyHose save baby shrimp?

    Does pantyhose really save baby shrimp getting sucked into the powerhead? CRS & RCS? Has anyone successfully done this? Can the babies get sucked and trapped against the pantyhose from the water flow/pressure? On a side note I've got shrimp carrying eggs. Do I do anything for the potential babies? Do they just feed the same as the adults? When would they start to appear visible to me?
  13. OK Thanks everyone for all the input & information. I think that most aquarium plants will probably be OK, but just to be safe I called the number Brenton provided. http://www.quarantinedomestic.gov.au/ They referred me to the "Noxious Weeds Listing" of each state. They said that if its not on the particular states "Noxious Weeds List" it's fine. VIC http://vro.dpi.vic.gov.au/dpi/vro/vrosite.nsf/pages/weeds_noxious NSW http://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/agriculture/pests-weeds/weeds/noxweed/noxious-app-application?sq_content_src=%2BdXJsPWh0dHAlM0ElMkYlMkZ3d3dpLmFncmljLm5zdy5nb3YuYXUlMkZ0b29scyUyRm5vbnNhbGVhYmxlLmh0bWwmYWxsPTE%3D These 2 states lists don't seem to have any plants that i know of/interested in. :-)
  14. Hi could someone point me in the right direction. Where can I find a list of restrictions regarding the importing/exporting aquatic plants between Australian states? Does each state have a different website and list etc? Does ACT just fall under NSW? Can Frogbit, Anubias, Java Fern, Java moss be shipped between VIC/ACT/NSW with out restrictions? Thanks
