so today i got to feed my shrimp i keep my food in the fridge then i had to get a 2 toothpick because there was food still on top of the tooth pick then we had to throw it away because i did not use it because i thought there was mold on it and i did not want to put my tooth pick and feed it to them and i feed them everyday.
So this picture you see is were i put my shrimp. So i put it on my glass table and i do not want sun to hit so what i did was i got a book to cover it from the sun. It is in my living room were i watch T.V and my glass table is right by the window.
so today we got to bring our shrimp home and we had to talk about how to feed them so they can get fed. And we learn how to take care of them our at home. so when we the water is half empty we had to get some water then we half to wait for a hour then we half to dump in the tank but we half to make. We half to put a little bit of water or when we put the cap on then the water will over fill of we fill it to the top. When they are dead they look like pink shrimp then we half to get one straw then we put it in the tank then we half to put our thumb on the top of the straw then we get the dead shrimp then we out our thumb up then it will suck up. So we learn about them in school then we made our habit. Then when you feed them the toothpick half to be clean or it will grow mold on it and when you do not put it in the ice box then it will have mold on it. It is good if you put the food in the ice box. And if the tooth pick have food on it then the bugs will eat it then we half to get a new tooth pick. If we put it on the sun to long then they will die cause there should not be hot water in the tank or it will die.
Today i am so happy because we got our shrimp in our tank we had to spend our shrimp money and bought our shrimp. Then we made our cap for our shrimp we peeled off like a sticker then we took it on our cap our teacher drill a whole. She drilled it in the cap then we got the sticker then we put it on top of our shrimp tank. So i got 12 shrimp because i had 7 then our teacher gave us 5 as prize then we got our shrimp tank then we put the cap on top.
Today we made the gravel, put rocks in the tank, and we made black water. We made it by getting the salt and put it in the water then we mixed it together then we used the hydrometer and we measured it. when we measured it we dumped all of it in the bottle then we took it outside in the garden.
so today we made the gravel then we put the rock in the jar. so we got the salt then we add it in the jar of water we mixed it in the jar we used the hydrogen then we dumped the water in the jar. then we put it out side in the garden so it can have algae
So we made our gravel. And this is what we did so first we got the jars and took it out side and pored the gravel then we dump the gravel in the bucket. We put water in the bucket then we mixed it together then we dumped the water in the grass. We put the gravel in the glass and the gravel was stuck on my hand.
In class we are going to make a shrimp habit. These shrimp are from the big island they were shipped. And we are making a habit for them and we are going to take them home. Then every 1 month we are going to take picture of them and post them on our blog. My teacher said that when he mad his the shrimp were gray because he said he just made the habit. Do you guys know how much shrimp is in this whole tank because i just took half of the tank? When they were shipped here some of them were dead.
