If I move to a bigger place, maybe.

Breeding is easy. Just keep things simple. Adding too many additives only makes things worse for the sensitive baby shrimp.

Beautiful!!

The first one is amazing, as most shots depict shrimp acting like they purely follow rules of gravity like a land animal, but we keepers know they love to swim

Mark - those action shots are very hard to capture so when I do get them, it's quite rewarding . Thanks!

CPD - Glad you like them!

I bet! They really love swimming, so I wish it was easier to get them. But they only swim short distances.

The only term I have for their little bouts of 'flying' is whimsical hahahaha.

The best time to catch them flying (at least males) is when a female molts . Otherwise, they do nothing but graze all day in my tanks . It's the berried females who I want a photo op of. Damn near impossible but when I do see them, it's very "whimsical" indeed .

Thanks Crystal! Now that you mentioned it, it does look like a plane. The antennas are the wings, while the tail is the stabilizers. Seems there's a bit of crosswind haha. Keep that tail straight!

Got up yesterday and half the BKK in the breeder box were going NUTS! Looked into the main tank and saw three molts. Hopefully that means I'll have some more CBS soon!
