I've just worked my way through this excellent thread. Great to see so many photos and there's lots of good advice too. I'm waiting on one of these sponge filters to turn up, it's cool that they both add filtration, and are a source of food too. Oh, and that they are super cheap.
Here are some cell phone shots of some juvies and various younger shrimplets:
Guess I'm doing something right with my shrimplet food. Because I've never had this many offspring in a short period of time in such a young tank. Some of the SS+ have produced SSS+ offspring. Gonna start culling in a week or two and guess I'll move the culls to my Golden/Snow White tank to see what happens. Also toying with moving a higher grade CRS to my SSS+ CBS tank to see what kind of offspring I can get.
Hundreds of babies in the RCS tank, as well, but I'm pretty sure those suckers could breed in rubbing alcohol.
If you're new to shrimp keeping, don't just read a handful of threads here on TPT and think you're ready to get your hands on the most expensive, most sensitive shrimp you can afford. Please actually read a few hundred threads and educate yourself before you jump through that hoop. Or if you have questions you can't find answers for, please ask a shrimper here on TPT or post a thread asking the questions. I promise you'll thank yourself for having patience and so will the shrimp.
