Yea.. see the fact that they eat baby snails means they will also eat baby shrimp :\

Yeah mine were good for 3 weeks then they turned on my shrimp. They were mean but they were also spawning so they were extra mean. I just remember then hunting down tiny ones. Mmmm shrimp.

80gal planted Angelfish community, 100gal SA cichlid delhezi, 7 gal betta.

Well my worrying over the shrimplets made me move the little guys, all three fish are now out of the ebi. Sad though Really wanted at least some kind of fish in there. Been thinking of other options, I dunno if endler's are aggressive or shrimp-safe and they seem to be the only other tiny fish.

Well since you have more expensive shrimp and your population isn't that large I wouldn't really keep any fish in there. Once you have a nice population going you can add some fish back in!

The only 100% shrimp safe fish are ottos. But those don't really swim in like open space which is probably what you are looking for

There are fish that are safer. But my sparkling gouramis were far from shrimp safe. Your shrimp will be better off with out them.

I think Pygmy cory cats can be shrimp safe. Along with otos. In a larger tank with lots of plants and hide out I find my galaxy danios good mates for shrimp they might eat a few slow ones but they don't hunt them down. I still find babies with these fish in the tank.

Pygmy cory cats could be fun to try once your shrimp babies get a little bigger.

I've seen the pygmy cories and they're cute Might look into some when my crs population gets going.

OK! The OEBTs ARRIVED! And I nearly had a heart attack when I saw the packaging! Only a relatively thin layer of newspaper was separating these little guys from the elements, I'm so freakin' glad the winters been mild here

And they are also microscopic. Thought I was buying shrimp not shrimpLETs but with ebay you never actually know what you just bought till it arrives on your doorstep...
I don't regret getting them tho




There's shrimp in those pictures. I swear.

Updates on the crystal herd:





And this is the corner all the berried shrimp go in to talk about their lives lol

How many OEBT did you get? Why not order from this forum o.O?

Seems the females feel most safe in that corner haha.

Updated fts! I finally removed the one rock from the driftwood because it doesn't float anymore, the other piece however....


And some better pictures of the tiny OEBTs, this hobby is definitely testing my camera's macro to the limit LOL. Right now they're living in the breeder box on the ebi because it has the most stable parameters of all my tanks, and I found a molt yesterday so they are already eating & growing
You can see the lil orange eyes in this one


One of the tiniest ones



The tiger nursery, I'm going to need to put a sock or something over the intake so no CRS shrimplets get sucked into the box. They should be born any day now too. And if you look reaaaally close you can see a lil shrimplet on the anubias leaf! The lid is only off for picture purposes


And this one discovered the crushed pond snail

Is the breeder box getting enough filtration? How are you promoting circulation into that tank?
