Every time I get ready to shut down the 20L with Cherries? I notice a berried mama like the shrimp just behind the rock in this photo:



Here's hoping she releases those babies soon so they can grow large enough for me to find them.

Well.. You could catch those mamas and put them in a breeder box?

I've got a spare breeder and an Elite Micro filter/pump but that would require actually setting things up.

I'll have to start doing that once all the other babies in the tank start growing up.

I've noticed with cherries, they're almost ready to get berried again while being pregnant. So it is difficult to get them all cleaned out lol.

You could systematically take male shrimp out of the tank to where ever you're putting them.

It'd take time like you said, but berries would stop.

Well, isn't that how you control the breeding population? I remove all the males, and only introduce the best looking ones!

Of course it is lol.

But cherry males aren't the best judges of how the prettier females will look.

I'm also not sure of Jake's goals.

It's just one of my random Cherry tanks. This particular one is populated with PFR culls that still get pretty red.

Slowly working to shut this tank down, toss in New Amazonia and then move in some of my Pure Red Lines and some of my Bees.

Shutting down the PRL tank, as well, so I can use New Amazonia in it. That will house various Caridina as I rescape tanks and move things around.

I sold quite a few 6-8 weeks ago in the For Sale section. Keep an eye out there, as many members sell shrimp.

Goal is still to shut these tanks down and start new ones.

Here are my latest Cherry juvies:



And my PRL culls:




Their shells are a bit splotchy because I just did a water change and yanked out a ton of moss.
