Welcome to the forum and nice to see another local sharing the addiction...
I wouldnt worry about culling anytime soon, but just basically you want to cull the lowest grades or shrimps you dont want in your colonies gene pool. This usually means the shrimps with less color and/or low grade patterns.

Koro-chan,

I never cull unless it's by accident when I thin the plants.

Welcome!

Hi all! I'm located in Issaquah. Currently I have a 7g nano with four Amano shrimp and two bee shrimp. I'd like to get more bees for this tank.

Also, I have a vase with emersed plantings that I'd like to add a couple of cherry or blue neos to in a month or so.

And, when I can convince my husband, I'd like to add a 45P tank and switch my existing 7g to a shrimp moss tank.

I guess I can't really join this convo until I start culling. Reading everything on forums and keeping to general consensus from the wise ones on these beauties.

CRS Tank, mixed S+, SS, SSS (most are juvies)

29 Gallon old school Biocube planted
72-74 degrees
ph 6.6
kh 1
gh 4
dry fertz (everything but KNO3 and CSM+B) Following Tom Barr's EI schedule
CO2, 2 bps 24 hours
76 watts T5HO lighting 10 hours with 3 hour break mid day
eco complete substrate
AC 70, H.O.T. w/ bio wheel, sump connected to UGF (next week adding another canister w/ UV filter)
Various plants I have no idea the names just bought from Midway Pets and Burien's a Place for Pets.

Question: How do I decide what kinds of shrimp to cull out of my batch?

Currently I only have my CRS for sale. I need to build up more OEBT stock.

However, I added a culls option for my CRS.

Culls (Slightly Transparent coloring, Pattern 1)
$25/10 Shrimp @$2.50/each
$55/25 Shrimp @ $2.20/each
$105/50 Shrimp @ $2.10/each
$200/100 Shrimp @ $2/each


S+ (Good coloring, Pattern 2)
$40/10 Shrimp @ $4/each
$90/25 Shrimp @ $3.60/each
$165/50 Shrimp @ $3.30/each


SS (Solid coloring, Pattern 3)
$30/5 Shrimp @ $7/each
$65/10 Shrimp @ $6.50/each
$160/25 Shrimp @ $6.40/each
$310/50 Shrimp @ $6.20/each

Find my ad by searching for "shrimp" on the PDX craigslist.

Really trying to get rid of my culls... lol I need to make more room in my tank for higher quality shrimp.

I currently have 2 CRS tanks set up and I'd like to downsize to one large tank and use the other for a new species.

I actually restarted my dsm caught the first attempt melted due to overwatering... (i think). Its been about 2 weeks into my second attempt and so far so good. I just recently finished building the stand and it turned out pretty good.
