    New to the forum, passionate about planted aquariums and exotic shrimp, started with 1 and now have 7 aquariums and still going strong.
    Looking forward to sharing and gaining knowledge.

    Hi Guys,

    Welcome Pieter Conradie!

    Sorry to put a damper in this, but whether shrimps are legal is by no means clarified. We have these discussions as if all is fine and above board, but it must be added that at this stage, all shrimps and shrimpers are strictly speaking illegal..... let us not forget that please.

    Kind regards,

    Dirk

    Thanks for the welcome all.

    Based in Kempton Park - Pomona (Johannesburg), will greatly share pictures of setups.

    Know it's a thread on its own and a toe stepping/gray area, illegal to import and selling of shrimp, keeping them in your aquarium??? And this can go on forever........

    So lets talk about planted aquariums, trubble shooting, experience, plants pearling and a CRS on beautiful evergreen moss .

    Spend almost the whole weekend on thanks, RO water had a pH of 7,9 and messed up all my water condition, had some expensive losses.

    Again new to forum's and looking forward to it! Sending picture's soon.
