  1. Hi everyone! I have about 12 PRL CRS in a 60 litre tank, which I've had them in for about 2 months and was cycled for several weeks before adding them. They were purchased as juvies and have grown quite a bit, molt frequently and appear to be quite active. It's pretty heavily planted and has quite a lot of drift wood, a few indian almond leaves and a biological sponge filter with a small air stone up the other end. They graze all day on biofilm so I dont think they aren't getting enough food, it's just got me stumped why they wont touch anything I put in the tank! I've tried: Hakari shrimp cuisine - a few hours in the tank before removed Hakari algae wafers - as above Ocean nutrition shrimp wafers - in all day and then over night Blanched zucchini and spinach - in approx 24 hrs And at most 1 might have had a bit of a feed for a few minutes but I cant notice any of the food actually 'gone' although I acknowledge they dont eat much. I've seen a lot of pictures and videos of shrimp going crazy for food but they genuinely couldn't care less about what I put in the tank. Could it be the case that theres more biofilm than they can eat, so dont give a stuff about food added? Tank conditions below: Water changes twice a week, 9-10L a time Temp: 23.5 Ph: 7.0 Ammonia: 0 Nitrate: 0 Nitrite: 0 KH: 1-2 GH: 6 TDS: 210 I'm not overly concerned as I can see they have food passing through their body, they do molt full shells and have grown a lot, but I absolutely cannot work our why they dont want anything I put in. Heres a photo of the tank (sorry, they love the algae too much to clean the sides) and a photo of one of the favorites.
  2. Hi All, After a few years hiatus from aquariums I am back! Previously had quite a few tanks but living arrangements changed, however, I was fortunate enough recently to get my hands on some awesome PRL Crystal Red Shrimp. Looking forward to chatting with you all soon
