You know what it's like when you're having a lousy evening because the dogs, say, ate half a pizza? And you decide to check on your tanks during feeding to try to forget about the mess? Sometimes it turns out pretty great.

This just happened:



I knew there were some babies but wow! Had no idea there were that many Goldens/Snow Whites.

Several groups of several dozen babies all over the tank.

Sweet redemption. Glad your day had a turn for the better. Hope the dog feels ok too.

Ha! Those guys could probably eat straight limestone gravel and not get sick.

But the shrimp were a great surprise.

Seeing your tank is making me want snow white/goldens in one of my 3G's. I didn't really have a liking for them before seeing this journal.

I think SWs/Goldens may be one of my favorites.

So much unexpected diversity amongst shrimp one typically thinks of as boring and white.

On the plus side, very few people seem to enjoy them these days so they're different than the standard Taiwan Bees or Pure Red Lines.

Maybe I underestimated the number of babies in the Golden/Snow White tank:



The scary part is that there are currently at least four berried mamas.

If you ever wanna get rid of some of those babies, you can always send them my way

But awesome seeing the amount of success you're having with them in such a small tank. Hopefully my TT's get happy and breed for me, too. Deciding if I should jump the gun on SW/Golden's for the second 3G Long or if I want something else, stillD:

Spotted a few more berried females, as well.

I enjoyed reading your thread over the weekend. I broke down and bought the same tank and ligth set up. I ended up getting the 10,000K 300 lumens light. They were out of the 6500K one. Your shrimp and moss look awesome! Great thread.

Thanks! These two little tanks are tons of fun. Getting ready to rescape one of them sometime in the next month. Really looking forward to the challenge.

Because of seeing your shrimp,I have decided to try and do the same. I am going to go with my first real shrimp tank (I have had cherries). Do you have any tips for a first timer? Is there anything I should do for my shrimp that you think makes a great difference in their health? I just really wanna try and get it right the first time.

The best advice I can give: go to the Shrimp section of the forum and read the sticky a dozen times. Read everything in it a dozen times. Then read, read, read on the forum.
