      Thanks Damion! It’ll be good to get them breeding again, the mature shrimp all died of old age, so I just have lots of young ones at the moment. Some are berried though, they mature so quickly!

    Hi Jared,

    nice set up again – are you still cycling the tank? And have you tested the stones for hardness neutrality? I had a similar boosting my KH unwanted :/

    I really like your dedication to the Sulawesi shrimp and cross my fingers that you make the dennerli breed again! Looking forward to your next entries 🙂

      Hi Imke,

      Thanks! I have added shrimp despite it not yet being cycled – I have added a large amount of established water and the filter is already established, so it shouldn’t be a problem. The stone and gravel both raise pH, GH and KH, but have been used in aquaria many times before so they should have next to no effect. I’m sure the C. caerulea will thrive in there!

      Thank you, I adore these species and I really hope I can come to keep most species and breed them to allows others to keep them also! I can’t wait to receive the snails off Chris Lukhaup, let’s hope there are no problems 😀
