 Hi  Viresh
 
 Frankly,  I  have  lost  faith  on  this  any  type  of  Freezed  Dried  fishfood,  as  its  nutritional  value  is  questionable.
 I  personally  prefer  Frozen  fishfood  (which  needs  to  be  kept  in  deep  freezer)  than  Freezed  dried.
 Best  bet  is  live  worms,  but  you  need  to  have  faith  on  its  source  (sewage/gutter).  Chuckle  
 No  risk-takers  will  always  stay  away  from  live  Tubifex  Worms.  Smile

Thanks  guys
 
 I  realize  that  its  likely  that  they  didn't  breed  in  my  tank.  I  am  planning  to  shift  out  a  few  Harlequin  Rasboras  that  are  there  in  the  tank  and  leave  the  tank  to  the  shrimps
 
 Anyone  running  shrimp  tanks  with  Flourish  Excel?
 
               

 
 Hi  Unni,  
 
 I  used  to  dose  Excel  in  my  shrimp  tank  but  stopped  when  the  shrimp  started  dying.  The  dosage  was  well  below  what  was  recommended  but  that  didn't  help.  They  did  fine  once  I  stopped  the  Excel.

Hi  Unni,
 Congrates...
 I  have  RCS  last  2  yrs.  in  my  tank.  I  bring  10  of  them.  And  they  continue  breeding.  
 Only  in  summer  I  have  seen  thier  breed  very  less.  Just  2  week  back  I  got  3  new  batch  of  RCS  arround  60-70.
 I  always  feed  them  Tetra  bits.  No  prob.  Sometimes  I  feed  them  "Palang  Shak"  (sorry  I  don't  know  the  english  term  of  this  vegetable  but  u  know  punjabi  food  called  "Palang-Paneer"  ,  I  mean  that  Palang).
 Also  I  agree  with  icecube...No  prob  with  pressurized  CO2.  
 And  with  RCS  I  have  Rainbow  Shirmp,  Zebra  Shrimp,  Red  nose  shrimp,  Wood  Shrimp....till  today  no  prob.
 Now  I  am  waiting  for  some  Cardinal  &  Bumble  bee  shrimp.  Let's  see...
 So  keep  going...within  a  month  u  have  lots  of  RCS.....  Thumb Up                

 
 Thanks  Abhi
 Just  wondering  if  they  will  crossbreed  with  the  other  varieties  if  kept  together?

 Satish
 the  tank  is  not  mature  enough  for  a  full  tank  shot  yet.

 That  leaves  me  with  CO2  in  the  shrimp  tank.  My  habit  is  to  keep  the  CO2  at  gas  chamber  levels,  I  am  sure  that  the  shrimps  with  perish  at  those  levels.

 I  think  the  Glutaraldehyde  in  Excel  that's  the  problem.  I've  seen  tanks  with  shrimp  thriving  with  30ppm  CO2.

 Vimal,
 
 am  not  so  sure  about  that.  i've  seen  it  happen  the  other  way.  unless  the  water  was  being  oxygenated  well  as  well.

 Hey  Vireesh,
 
 Unless  you're  using  a  separate  O2  source  to  oxygenate  the  water,  the  CO2's  gonna  be  lost  well  before  you  get  to  30ppm.  Even  I've  had  shrimp  in  my  main  planted  tank  with  CO2  at  3-5bpm  until  my  Rainbows  got  them.  
 They  might  have  a  problem  while  moulting  because  of  the  acidity  of  the  water  though.

 Well  if  they  cant  molt  they  will  die  out  eventually  bro.  unless  u  dose  Calcium  as  well......and  u  might  need  to  really  dose  up.....am  runnin  3  very  very  low  tech  non  CO2  tanks  and  i  still  add  30ml  of  calcium  to  it  every  water  change  which  is  40%  every2days.

 The  effect  on  moulting  was  speculation  on  the  part  of  a  few  aquarists  here  in  Bangalore,  we  don't  really  have  any  evidence  that  supports  this  theory   Smile   I've  never  dosed  Calcium,  good  old  hard  borewell  water  does  the  trick  for  me.

 I  searched  around  a  little  on  the  net,  most  people  seem  to  be  expressing  worries  that  Excel  is  harmful  to  shrimp.  The  Seachem  site  says  otherwise   Confused
