    Default My New Taiwan Bee Akadama tank

    Hey everyone. I just set up this new 55 gal Thai bee tank. I was given this almost brand new Marineland tank. I decided to try out some Akadama and make a new Thai bee tank.
    I rinsed the tank out went out to the store and picked up some crushed black lava rock and a bag of small grain Double Line Akadama and scaped the tank. I used three pieces of new wood...2 mopani and one Malay. I also used 2 pieces of Malay driftwood from already established CRS tanks. I added a new Azoo 125L air driven sponge, a cylindrical sponge over the Marineland filter intake. i grabbed one medium Amazon sword, a small piece of Java Fern and a small group of pellia. I also took the 125L Azoo sponge filter from an already established tank and rinsed it (squeezed it into a bucket of water from its tank) and then poured the mulm directly into the new tank and "bombed" it with bacteria. I have attached early pics from early yesterday and the water was still cloudy. As of the time of writing this it has cleared up and I have added 2 F1 CBS mischlings and 3 pandas/kk. They seem to be doing very well feeding aorund the new tank.

    Fact, still cloudy, but hardscape looks nice. Big tank, so you can bee sure very stabile water conditions after cycling. Really well done!
    I cross my fingers for new TB family and wait for new photos.

    Your tank looks very nice!

    BTW, I think you are meaning Taiwan Bee, difference being about 1500 miles

    What are Thai Bee shrimp? Is there another name they go by? I've never seen them before. I did a google for them, and it only turned up this thread. Who in the states imports them and what do they go for?

    Or is it just the lighting/camera that makes it look like a CBS with blue instead of white?

    Nice shrimp, Sean! Those "Blue Pandas" (or whatever they're called) are catchy.

    I think he meant "Taiwan Bee shrimp"...(Sean?). And yes, there are shrimp that are indeed blue as such.

    Yep Donny, I sure did mean Taiwan Bee. Just a brain fart one evening and I didn't catch until mentioned above. By then I could no longer edit.
    If you are refering to this shrimp below...it is considered a blue panda, Taiwan Bee or Shadow Shrimp.

    This is no lighting trick. These shrimp are blue much of the time . At other times the blue fades to white but then comes back for long periods of time.
    Thanks Donny btw.
