    Will Teach others that even tho we always hear
    ".. cherrys R EASY to keep &... They R MOR 4GIVING.."
    they too hav ther own requirements. & its a commitment, Looking after these guys too.
    The Not to treat these guys with mor effort, & not think "cherrys r mor forgiving so i will can get away with this and that.."(even tho its true- but not to abused them for it)..

    If you want to breed high grade shrimp then they have to be by themselves (or with ottos). If you're not fussed about the grade, but just want to keep them, there is a list of fish that are safer with shrimp in the beginner's stickies, under "Plants and Tank Companions". The only fish that are truly safe with shrimp are ottos.

    If you want more information on the fish in the list, have a look in the articles section under "fish".

    And also, with the benibachi balls, do they help in the long run?
    Cheers
    i know im not using an ro unit but i use half rainwater half tap water and seems to be working well, also alot cheaper than buying an ro unit

    Excellent work Penthrox, really impressive!

    Might be worth mentioning that your water hardness, even in Adelaide, varies depeding on the dam you're supplied by. There is one supplying parts of the Hills (and I think maybe some of the Southern suburbs like Aberfoyle Park?) which has a clay basin, and so gives very soft water.

    There are also the Biomax foods - it's probably going to be impossible to get an exhaustive list of the appropriate legal imports.

    Another alternative for cooling (although you did mention that there were others) is using your air con. If you have a large number of tanks, and good insulation, this might end up being cheaper and more efficient in the long run - although we'll see how that pans out after the new tax.

    Thanks again for doing this - brilliant job!
