All crystals are kept in those conditions. It actually brings out the white much more in their shells. It was a recommendation from my source.

GL with tigers. Def more challenging as far as baby rearing goes.

Great pictures. What is the moss called you have in most of your shots? For example in the most recent shadow TB shot.
Thanks! That's Taiwan moss. I also keep mini xmas moss.

I'm not breeding them in the TDS 200 tanks, just keeping them. My breeder tanks which house the mature shrimp are around 170 TDS/pH 6.9.

Thanks Nick and Bryce!

Beautiful Blue neo shot. I so wish someone could stabilize the strain and made it a pure line.

Yup! There's quite a few of them but still all a bunch of juvies. I've already segregated them.

I love and hate you at the same time. How can one person possibly own that many valuable shrimp at one time? T.T
