kreisel for shrimp

Postby andy.wise » Sun Apr 26, 2009 7:18 am

Hi, i just want to know if this will work.. i have tried rasing my peppermint shrimp in a rectangle tank with a air stone but i cant really seem to keep them alive.
so i thought this would do it.
is a kreisel system a good idea?
this is what my home made one looks like

i havent put the mesh in yet, but i have 150 micron and 300 micron. what one should i use?

Thanks

I use a kriesel design with success. I designed mine from a plastic fish bowl. Works well but keep the water quality high.

I never really needed a kreisel to raise decent numbers.. main thing is to add enough airstones to get enough flow.

FuEl,

How did you prevent damage due to airation with that many air stones?

yeah i kninda agree.. that is why i decided to make a kreisel.. when i watched the larvae in the tank the would just get bashed around alot, and it was too fast for them to be able to catch their food.
also i should be able to keep the water quality alot better with this kreisel way.

Wooden airstones..control the flow. They tolerate them just fine. :)
