    Default Sulawesi Shrimps

    Hello all , I ha notice this new shrimps in some of Singapore aquarium shops recently. I heard from the the seller that these shrimps need higher Ph and they dont really need cold water like CRS. Did anyone here try to keep them yet? What is the different between CRS and Sulawesi Shrimps?

    Hi there, i didnt really ask them about the price. And they carry a few different types of shrimp. I m trying to find out more about Sulawesi Shrimps before i start to keep them.

    Sigh, I actually was wishing that I wouldn't see these new shrimps in any of the LFS here because I haven't got space in the house for any more tanks!!!!!! Haven't seen any myself but from what I read so far, they need temperatures above 28C(hooray!!!!) and pH about 8 (which can be acheive with some coral sand in the filter) and soft water. Sounds theoretically easier to keep than CRS, anyone out there in Singapore who has reared them? Please share!!!

    I was just thinking if we filter coral sand to get higher pH, will the coral sand cause the water to be hard too? Will coral sand give us soft alkaline water or hard alkaline water?

    I have get to know something about Sulawesi Shrimps from a friend from indonesia who have keep them for awhile now. He has CRS in another tank. He told me that to keep these shrimps, it's much more easy then to keep CRS. But you need to get the water right. I don't know is it the truth about it. So that means there is no way to keep them in the same tank as the CRS.

    Yes, you can not keep Sulawesi shrimp and CRS in same tank. Because of the Sulawesi need hight PH level than CRS. I separated breeder tanks of Sulawesi and the hight lavel grade of CRS
