Baby shrimp growth rate.

Hey guys
I recently had a few batches of rilis hatch and was wondering how big they should be on a week? 2 weeks? A month? Of sellable size? Hopefully answers will be based on experience. If you cpuld state your TDS that's be great as I know it affects the growth rate.

IME, it's ~1.5-2 months to reach selling size. However that was with crs, not neos... Neos maybe a month to 1.5. Good luck Jeff!

Its easier for young shrimp to adapt to new water parameters, meaning you want young shrimp about 1/2" for your buyer to they don't die when introduced to the buyers tank.

Great. It been 2.5 weeks for my first batch of Rilis and they're at about 6-8mm? Normal?
