    Hi Imke!

    I have my own well and the water is pretty clean. In general, we are blessed with very good water up here in the North.

    Ive cycled this tank around 2 months. The shrimps from Matano lake works good in my tapwater but not the Touwuti lake shrimp, they seem to be more sensitive. I have only tried C. spinata and got them berried but no shrimplets.

    About the subject of snails with Caridina dennerli i've always had it so I can not comment if it works as good without. My guess is that is not critical to have them together but ive belive snails in tanks is in general a good thing.

    Maybe in sensible Touwuti shrimp tank they can raise conductivity to fast but i will try to have them anyway. But my focus is the shrimp and the population of snail have to adjust to amount of food the shrimp gets (pretty small amount)

    In this tank i feed 3-4 days a week with a relatively small amount, there are many shrimp in this tank.

    Now ive started to use reverse osmos water to lower the conductivity in combination with a stable high pH. Hopefully I will succeed even with some more delicate shrimp now. But only time will tell.

    your parameters are really good for sulawesi! If you're using crushed coral, doesn't it affect your GH levels as well? Hoping to learn as I'm running a sulawesi tank as well, I added a bit of coral sand and my GH went sky high. is there other means to raise ph?

    Hi to you to Grottbert

    If i remember right it was labelled as "dragon stone" when i bought them. The holes are great for the shrimp but not always for me when i try to catch shrimp.

    I'm also thinking of introducing some of those stones into my denerlii aquarium but hesitated since i read that they had irontraces in them, but since you are breeding happy denerlii's there it shouldn't be a problem for me either.
    Thank's for putting my mind at ease

    The iron traces might be good since the lakes are rich in iron.

    Hi

    Right now the stones is in disorder because im selling quite a lot of shrimplets at the moment. But the tank are doing well and the shrimp is breeding good.

    Im thinking of maybe start selective breeding cardinals, diffrent mutation do appear sometimes with more less color and spots.
