Very nice shrimp Nick.

How often do you feed them blanched veggies? If I give my shrimp blanched spinach more than once a week they don't want to eat it. Picky little things. I think they are spoiled on high protein stuff.

Thanks Hedge!

I feed these guys fresh veggies twice a week. Spinach and Kale. I alternate with other foods such as algae wafers and NLS crustacean pellets. They love Spinach the most. it also keeps them nicely colored!

I used to not care for the chocolate neos as much, but yours look really sweet. Love the tibees as well. Keep it up.

When you get a chance, give Chocolates a try. I like them because they remind me of Black Tigers and Extreme BKK for obvious reasons .

Check this guy out. Abmormal BTOE, with a section of his carapace being clear, only on one side. Could just be an anomaly, but rather cool looking wouldn't you say? And NO, he's not sick.

As always nice, great pictures and I look forward to the different ones you get, and like I see everywhere, your shrimp are TOP notch! just need to get better, then I can get some nice ones from ya! That BTOE is crazy looking! I have never seen anything like that before, but I am not surprised with all the great morphs and such out there!

Thanks sketch. I got some brand new shrimp arriving tomorrow that I'm adding to my breeding projects. I'll post up more pictures once they've acclimated.

haha I'm switching out all my Akadama soon. Got me a few boxes of Amazonia for my Caridinas. As for Neos, they will all be housed in sand, just like the Chocolates.
