Thanks, and I have no idea how to change the title of the thread (I doubt I could lol)
If I can, tell me ;D and I have to agree that the CBS/CRS are the best shrimp I've ever kept too but lol I've only kept RCS before these guys XD so it isn't saying much but nonetheless these guys are AWESOME.
I like that little breeder box you have. I don't have a lot of knowledge about breeding shrimp (which I why I keep having to buy more, hah!), but do you just put your berried shrimp in there until they have their babies?
So today I decide to look through thee ole tank to check up on my CRS/CBS but I found something that I never expected to see EVER again.
I found a RCS from my previous 10 gal tank... and I'm thinking to myself... no way. Has to be a super sick CRS/CBS but no it was a RCS fully faded orangey red colour all over (at one point I tried to play it off as an underwater spider falling into the tank or some trick of the light lol).
and I was in disbelief for like 5 mins staring at it. It was grazing on the inside of my driftwood. I'm just hoping that it's the ONLY RCS in the tank lol. I didn't take him out cause I was stunned and decided to leave him be because that is pretty huge accomplishment... I mean this guy... was in the tank from day 1 (when I transferred the driftwood/coconut cave [with the java moss] in my other tank)
I know it isn't uncommon for shrimp to be transferred along with moss but the things this guy has been through
RCS truly are the tanks of the shrimp world lol JUST because:
He literally handled a tank with a TDS of 0 (0 gH 0 kH) for like a good long amount of minutes (the day I changed from tap to RO). Handled a giant parameter change gH 12 kH 9 pH 7.8 to gH 4-5 kH 0-1 pH 5.5-6.0 (current tank parameters) and gosh do I feel bad unknowingly putting him through that...
I guess his prize is to live amongst the CRS/CBS in super clean filtered water lol...
