    Talking HELLO SHRIMPNOW / max. temp. for CR?

    greetings from sunny Malaysia, i have just started ''shrimping'' in the last month and i am current keeping cherries (just noticed shrimplets today) in a 10g fully planted tank and i want to move on to CRS...The average water temp here is 30 degrees but with a mini fan its currently at 27.5 during the day and 26 at night...i was wondering weather by adding a another 2 more mini fans the temperature will be reduced even more?? they are from JEBO,and what is the maximum temperature they can tolerate and what is the max temperature for the shrimplets need to survive??

    Hi jake, the highest temp that the CRS can tolerate is 26 degree, but it's better to keep them between 22~25

    actually the max temp is 30C...just let them adapt slowly...as in keep them in cooler waters first and slowly bump up the temp....ive seen a LFS have a CRS tank at 30C with few hundred CRS/CBS in it

    But the question is are they healthy and breeding steadily? Personally the highest i would go with crs temp is 25c.

    Hi adrianng, with 30 degree and a few hundred CRS is rather unbeliveble

    He mentioned that this is a Local Fish Store in his area so that means they are buying in hundreds and cramming it in a small tank that is not even set for crs and would probably be in a bad shape. I would personally not buy from such store and go straight to other hobbyist in my area if i was to buy crs.

    on talking about Temp, my tank is 60x40 and going with a Hailea 150A chiller set 24 (degree), and each time the chiller run, it take the temp down to 23 instead of 24, and wait untill the temp jump up to 25 to run again, so the balance between 2 times running is 2 degree in about ~3 hours. I wonder would it be harmful to my CRS with those changes all the day
