I had some cherry shrimp in QT for over a week. Today I moved them into a 7.5 gallon tank with an internal filter using some bio-media from my goldfish tank. Before I put the cherry shrimp in the tank, I ran the filter for a bit. I had the filter running for about 5 minutes before I remembered to put prime in the water. Do you think that in those 5 minutes the BBs in the bio-media died? If so, I can get more bio-media from my goldfish tank, but I thought I would check in with all of you. Pictures will be coming soon....
I'm adding some cherry shrimp to the 2.5 gallon refugium that hangs off the back of my goldfish tank. I currently have plants in that tank along with the heater. I'm getting the shrimp from substratesource.com. Do I need to QT the shrimp? If so, what QT process do you recommend?
I finally went and got the cherry shrimp to stock my Fluval Spec (2 gallon) tank today! I can't take really good pictures yet because there is a lot of light/glare on the tank right now, but here is a sneak preview! I got 5 of them. So far they seem to be totally diggin' their digs. They are a little washed-out looking because of the stress of moving, though, I think.
