Default Common Topics on Shrimp Keeping (NEWBIES START FROM HERE)

I have done a search over 10 pages in AF and list down some of the topics that may be good for new tank setup or new shrimp hobbyist to read up.

Bro Silane, I recall there was one sticky months ago (before database corruption or something) that list down some pointers. Can you provide more guides to fellow shrimp hobbyist and if this thread is relevent, can it be a sticky so pple can gather more info before starting a new thread?

Here's the list:

Thank globalcookie for the initiative.

For all, feel free to all to add useful links, refrain from asking question in this thread but at the individual thread itself.

Something to bear in mind is, there are some difference between species of shrimps and requirement can be slightly different.

Default Introducing New Plants into Existing Shrimp Tank

Recent discussion (Nov 08) topic regarding sudden deaths of a mature tank with shrimps when new plants were introduced into the tank. Take Note!

Here's Bro Silane's advice
See on the plant:
http://www.arofanatics.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=346398
I would suggest to soak the plant for a few days and do a few water changes.

For now, you can use active carbon to remove the residue toxic, use trustable brands like Sera. Put 3/4 cup into your canister filter.
