yes, no adult snapping for me lol.
i'm going to be careful and siphon then spoon them back.
some trouble is finding them among the debris. it will likely help if they get red color fast after the hatch. i'll have trouble with transparent shrimplets though..

nnoooo the transparent are the kind of culls I'm looking for D: But it is a cool "natural selection" if they aren't red enough they are less likely to make it back to the tub in order to breed. Honors Bio. FTW

Well it's either Bio major or Game Design (really similar right?)
and good all I need are a male/female cull pair. (wont be for a while though).

cool. man thats been my biggest problem is i could either a.)Be a Game Designer and run a side buisness involving fish (like speedie) or b.) Be an aquarist and do a little game designing on the side. Both are quite easily interchangeable which makes it even harder to decide D: at least I'm down to 2 though when I was younger there were 23 things i wanted to be when i grew up lol i was a very weird kid back then :P

Update? wanna see my drawing of a cherry shrimp I made today :P

unfortunately the crystal shrimp are all gone. my parent wanted me to put my shrimp tanks outside, and the crystals couldn't handle the temp swings...all are gone
I brought the bowl back inside, and will eventually try yellow shrimp and convert the bowl back to tap water
for now it stays a planted only system.

I also am desperately trying to move out so that these types of problems dont keep happening.

yes i will miss the crystals

yellows are doing well in the bowl. i converted it to tap water now. waiting for possible algae...

my cherry shrimp are doing ok. both amanos still alive. All are currently indoors because of cold weather. the crate is in storage, and the shrimp are currently living in a 5 gal bucket...
the cold weather messed them up in terms of the berried females. some of the babies were born but only a few made it into the bucket.
a few females are still berried and most are saddled. a couple of them are both saddled and berried at the same time which is odd...
