Awesome! I'll be setting up my shrimp tank this weekend. Perhaps in a month and a half or two you'll have some offspring available for sale for a local?

tried feeding them some repashys community plus today. i was amazed at the feeding response i got. they all went for it and devoured a pretty massive chunk in only 3 hours (normally they still have some leftovers with the prepared food that i take out at around 12 hours). i recommend other shrimpers try it.
and what i really like is that you can add other stuff too it. like i usually add some extra astaxanthin.

noticed today that the king kong is berried.
cant promise pictures, because even noticing these shrimp are berried is hard. getting a pic of it would be nearly impossible.
but i hope to take pics of some baby shrimps in due time...

Try to get pictures! I've never been able to get photos of any of my berried BKKs.

Seems like they hide more when berried than other berried shrimp. Or maybe they're just harder to see because they're dark.

i think a bit of both.
i havent seen her in days before today. and my wine red only comes out every few days too - when i used to be able to see here instantly before she berried.
and with both, you can only see the berries from beneath - except when they fan their swimerrets or swim.

got a pic of the berries (or rather of one of the berries) on the BKK. also, the first blue diamond to be berried is no longer berried, so im hoping to get a pic of a shrimplet soon.
