    Snail Removal

    Does anyone know a good way to get rid of snails. I am doing a new scape and am reusing some of the plants form my old sacpe which was getting a bit over run with snails. I will nuke the tank with CO2 when i first get it going do you think that this will be enough to get rid of the snails...

    shrimp food

    the shrimp have feeding claws so they dont need the fine stuff, in my experiance any way they just pick buts off the sides of the pice of food.

    how many shrimp?

    more of the same to bring in a fresh bloodline, crs and crc can go togeather, amanos can go with either of these also but are quite large and you shouldn't realy bother with them. i started with 20 cherries i now have around 100 and i have sold some i have added a few from lfs when i find them.

    amanos blue?

    I have just got some what I think are amanos from my lfs (they called them algae shrimp) and they look quite blue. Could they be amanos all the markings are very similar but the blue seems strange. I will put a picture up later

    how many shrimp?

    I would say to start with 15 and as they start breeding move a few to another tank and mix up the bloodlines a little.

    I am after some snails for my tanks (not pest snails) i like the look of the spined nerite snails. i would rather not have them go crazy breeding but if they grow quite fast i can just sell them. they need to be safe with my shrimp also. anyone got any ideas of what i could put in my tankand...

    Where am I going wrong?

    my cherries hold them for about 3 weeks and my HC is full of tiny shrimp (they get a bit mad when i have a trim!!) :D if your water is good enough for them to live they should breed happliy. if you are concerned get some more of LondonDragon. that is where my shrimp are from and now i have an...

    CRS and PH

    do you run CO2 injection because this will pull the PH down, bog wood also helps bring the ph down,a bit more info on your set up will help you get an answer. i have to use an RO filter because i have verry soft acidic water about 4-5 ph which means there are a lot of heavy metals in the water...
