Shrimper Keepers, \r
\r
It is time for another Shrimp Saturday video. Today we are going to talk about my fail at acclimating new shrimp to an aquarium, why it is great to us RO water for freshwater shrimp, why it is important to remineralize the water, what products to use to remineralize the water and finally a trick to simplify the process of remineralizing RO water with a TDS pen. \r
\r
First, I messed up bad. I completely forgot to remineralize the water when I set up new tanks for some crystal red and crystal blacks I had in another tank. I acclimated them over 3 days so luckily it wasnt a huge shock on the shrimp although I already lost a handful of shrimp.\r
\r
Ro water is so important to what I do. In no way do shrimp need RO water to thrive. Although, RO water is great for shrimp because it eliminated or greatly reduce the risk of beria coming from tap water. City tap water ranges in parameters and what is living in it. This makes tap water and well water a rsiky option for shrimp keepers. \r
\r
Salty shrimp GH+ and Salty shrimp GH+/KH+ are the two product I use to remineralize RO water. Both have their own purposes as explained in the video. These are the two I would recommended to any shrimp keeper. \r
\r
Check out the end of the video for an easy method to remineralize RO water for shrimp and a way to know if your shrimp tank is ready for a water change. \r

tafbutton blue16 Big Mistake, RO Water for Shrimp, How to Remineralize a Freshwater Shrimp Tank

This tutorial is based on a set-up guide by Graham McDonnell, an admin of All Things Shrimp, a European-based Facebook group for sharing shrimp knowledge with over 10,000 members. (Ive added a few things and changed the order of one of the steps.)\r
\r
Graham McDonnell – All Things Shrimp\r
1. Add BW Minerax (Mineral Powder) liberally on the base.\r
2. Add BW Enlive (dormant beria).\r
3. Add BW Bebi (powdered food) – helps to mature substrate and will rapidly produce biofilm, an essential part of the shrimps diet.\r
4. Add substrate.\r
5. Fill with RO H2O mineralized with SS GH+ (or other remineralizer).\r
6. Set TDS to ~150 because it will drop about 120 ppm over the first week as soil matures\r
a. Aiming for 130 TDS, which gives a gH of 5\r
7. Add hardscape/décor, plants, and filter. (This was at the end, but Ive placed this before adding other things.)\r
8. Add minerock – helps with molting and keeping a constant supply of essential minerals that are very slowly released into tank.\r
9. Add 1 bee ball for every half gallon of H2O (or 2 bee balls for every gallon). 10 Gallon = 20 BB\r
a. Helps to purify water. Can last up to 2 years.\r
\r
From personal experience.\r
\r
Good hardscapes for shrimp tanks:\r
- driftwood\r
- spiderwood\r
- lava rock\r
- ohka stone\r
- ornamental decorations\r
\r
Preferred shrimp filtration: Sponge filter (single, dual, HMF, etc.)\r
- You CAN use any other types of filters as long as they are made shrimp-proof.\r
\r
Plants that do best with shrimp:\r
- mosses\r
- anubias\r
- floaters (help with nitrates)\r
\r
**You DO NOT need ALL of the products listed in the video. That is just how I followed this set-up process. The MUST-HAVES are listed below, so if you are on a budget, these are the only things you really need to purchase.\r
\r
Shrimp Essentials:\r
- substrate\r
- shrimp-proof filter\r
- leaf litter (Indian Almond Leaves/Catappa Leaves, Mulberry Leaves, Banana Leaves, Amaranth Leaves, etc.)\r
\r
Highly Recommended (You dont have to buy these, but shrimp do best with these in the environment):\r
- any type of aquatic moss\r
- cholla wood\r
- alder cones\r
\r
Completely Optional (You really dont need these, but it may take longer for your tank to cycle/mature if you dont have some of them):\r
- Borneo Wild products\r
- mineral rock\r
- bee balls\r
- hardscape/decor\r
- plants

Hey shrimp keepers! Hope you all are making it a great week! I wanted to talk about a 75 gallon shrimp tank I just set up. It is a 75 gallon cherry shrimp tank. I want to start breeding more cherries and also experiment with the red coloration on the cherry shrimp. Im thinking the light and the mix of colors in the substrate will play an affect, but we will see. \r
\r
My intern starts this coming Friday. I ordered all the sponge foam for the HMF filters so we have a ton of resetting of tanks to do. Itll go pretty quick I am thinking. Plus, we have a ton of new shrimp coming in this week which is always a lot of fun. \r
\r
The Taiwan bee shrimp werent doing too well in their 40 gallon home. Im not 100% sure what the problem was but I think it had to do with water flow. Ill continue to work on it and let you all know my findings. The new home for the Taiwan bee shrimp is a 20 gallon long with an HMF. It seems to be doing amazing thus far. \r
\r
Keep an eye out this Friday for the first ever Fish Room Friday! Wait until you see the fish rooms I have for you. They are all something worth looking at! Its so cool to see others fish rooms and how they do them. I learn so much every time I go and see someones setup. \r

Thank you all for the love and support. I hope you enjoy all the videos. Its all about growing the freshwater shrimp hobby in the US. We are all shrimp keepers or soon to be shrimp keepers icon smile 75 Gallon Cherry Shrimp Tank and Update on Taiwan Bee Shrimp \r

The Dennerle 30L Shrimp tank was beautiful, but I had to tear it down to make way for this 64 litre. \r
\r
List of what I use below:\r
\r
Cheap LED lights: \r
Eheim 150W heater: \r
Aquael filter: (Shrimp safe)\r
Dennerle Substrate 1: \r
Petex Substrate: \r
\r
When I used this 64 Litre tank for lots of different fish before I upgraded I used a Fluval 206: one of the best rated filters on Amazon. However for a few neons and shrimp I just use the sponge one linked above.\r
\r
I said the Neons were only in the 30L temporary and this is what they have been upgraded to. I now have 12 Neons, and 6 Red Cherry Shrimp. \r
\r
Im hoping the Shrimp breed like crazy, and the Neons also breed, but well see about the neons.\r
\r
I used everything from the 30L and transferred it to this tank. the whole process took about 2 hours. The only new thing I added was an extra bag of gravel.\r
\r
