    I put two times the net in the tank when i feed them to catch somes , and the tanks still full of shrimps. :)

    If you were in Australia you would have no trouble selling your high quality shrimp.

    You must spend many hours maintaining those wonderful tanks to such a high standard.

    Those tank are very easy ...
    It take 10min every day to feed them and trim when it need .
    And ~ two hours for all once a week to do water changes and trims.

    This is a must check your tank when feeding that way you can detect a concern long before it becomes a problem.
    This is for the new comers what percentage do you change and is it done?

    Yes when you are feeding u look the shrimps how react to food and just look the plants.
    For sullawesi tank every two weeks 20 lt for 100lt tank.
    crs , yellow , topaz ~10 % it take only 20lt for 4 tanks, in those tanks i dont give ferts..
    And the other 3 neo shrimp tanks 30lt , and some times more , because i give ferts.
    Every 3 weeks i clean the prefilters of the filters.
    The key is not overfeeding... feed shrimps small amounts .
    Water is make easily just measure tds and add minerals or tap , in ro water.

    Hi Nicpapa!

    Is the substrate fluorite and gravel mixed? Also, what is that large emerged plant that is growing out of the water?
    I absolutely love the growth and look of your tanks! This is a lot of inspiration for me in creating my 75 gallon tank!

    Thanks!
