    As for the Electrical bill, not too sure yet. But recommend to buy one model above what you need. My chiller only kicks in once in a while only, so do not think it will be too high. Will monitor and let you guys know.

    BTW, I do not mind paying even if it is high but to get the peace of mind.

    Samething happen to me, the pregnant ones die one by one and lost of colour before that.

    Not too sure they can make it unless it is in a aircon room if without chiller.


    Cheers

    Back to topic,I like to hear from you after you install the chiller, what was the bill difference? Or any of you know the increase?

    Hi Star88,

    So far my monthly bill have gone up by $55.00. Not sure how much the chiller have contributed as the last few weeks was very hot and 2 of the aircon in the house was on as early as 8.00 pm till next day....

    Also my chiller was set at 21 degrees.... very the kiasu...

    Hope this helps.

    I don't think it cost much on electrical bill... put it as a air-con usage at home monthly bill around $30.00 estimated..

    And with such cost you assure will be very happy to see your crs beautify it red & white color..

    I can validate the temperature sensitivity of crystal reds. I had my temp at 79.5 - 80F and they did not molt or breed regularly. I chatted with Fruitpie and he advised me to lower it and now I have it at 76F and they are doing much better. I have serveral shrimp molt a few days after I lowered the temp and now I have many females carrying eggs. Their color also appears nicer.

    I am going to continue to lower the temp over the next several weeks and get it down to 72-73F and see how they do.

    Vinnymac,

    Thank for sharing the result, hope you will have tons of CRS offspring soon.

    Keep us updated if there is any further color improvement when lower to 72/73F.

    I lowered my temp even more to 73.4F and my shrimp are doing very well. I noticed all my shrimp are displaying better coloration...even my cherry shrimp look more red than they usually do.

    I keep mine at 72F. They breed regularly. I think it's the ideal temp for all shrimp w/ exception of amanos, who can tolerate a much higher temp.

    I have a 'testing' tank as I call it ... a 2.5g tank with no heater and the Red Cherry shrimps are doing well at 65 deg F (18.5 deg C). They look nice and red though ... so, just to show, they do well in most lower temps too.
