    Awesome Pictures, keep sharing and updating.


    Are sulawesi shrimps that hard to keep? Or have they stabilized quit a bit?


    What about snowflakes, orchids, harlequins?

    Sulawesi cardinal shrimps is easy, they want stable parameters.


    The most petshop have wild shrimps, and the most people dont prepare the tank.


    I run the tank for 2 motnh wiht snails to prepair it for shrimps.


    If you find shrimp that birth in a tank its easier to keep them


    my parameters


    Dimensions: 60x40x40cm ~ 90 liter


    Filtration: hang-on filter EHEIM LiBERTY 2042


    Substrate: gravel


    Decoration: Lava rock


    Water parameters:


    temp 28.5


    gh 5


    kh 4


    ph 8.0-8,2


    tds 130


    no3 0-5


    Lighting 12 hours 2 t8 x18watt.


    Water change R.O . with salty shrimp mineral 8.5 .


    Every two weeks 10 liter.


    I feed the snails every 2-3 days.


    The shrimps prefer eating on woods, rocks and algae , they never eat the food.


    I cant find here other sulawesi shrimps to try .

    nice shrimp :)


    I agree about the sulawesi shrimp stable is the key and small water changes I do about 10% every week.


    I used to keep


    CARDINAL SHRIMP - Caridina Dennerli


    WHITE ORCHID (Starry Night) SHRIMP - Caridina sp


    BLUE LEG POSO SHRIMP - Caridina CAERULEA


    Red Goldflake Shrimp, Caridina sp


    All managed in ph 7.5. Sulawesi shrimp salts


    I've since sold them due to two children (time) except for the blue posos that are more hardy, I started with 4 and now have 30 plus more carrying eggs.

    I find it pretty incredible that you can do co2 with shrimps. I have not the skill to do this, they always die on me in my high tech tank. Your plant growth is pretty damned good. Although the lighting settings with camera hide the brown bottoms of the tonina pretty well. That purple plant looks amazing, is that aromatica?

    Maybe you add a lot of co2 ... :)


    Those tanks run wiht low lights and ferts.


    In crs tanks and sulawesi there is no co2 .


    Tonina is a weird plant... :)


    I cant understand why the bottoms loose the leaves.


    The purple i think that is aromatica.

    The variety of shrimp is amazing. I have never seen anyone do just shrimp like this. Good job! I want to make a joke and ask how they taste but don't think that will go over well. Sorry. Just what pops into my head.

    Awesome shrimp!! I see you keep your shrimp in a shrimp tank only. I'm keeping some rili shrimp with endlers, should I be worried about the babies not surviving or them picking on the audit shrimp?

    Very impressive tanks, youve inspired me! Did you transplant very tiny eriocaulon plants, or did you grow them from seeds?
