Richard at day 66 you were adding fresh water. What % of fresh water were you adding and for how long till they were fully acclimatized to fresh water? I have read in other attempts that this when many shrimp were lost.

I really had a bad time with this (in terms of knowledge base).I was scared of keeping the zoes in marine for too long because if I lost them at this stage then the last two months would have been for nothing (if you know what I mean). I should have waited much longer as I now believe this would have increased survival.

I have my own new ideas about identifying when the zoes would be ready for fresh water, but want to practice this before sharing (as I could be wrong).

Are you attempting this yourself?

Right now I am working on another specie. Brackish to full salt back to brackish.
I am considering the amano in the coming months. Seems like more fun in a sadistic way.

I would only call it fun at first.. two months of pushing your nose up to green water shining a torch light in can get a bit too winded. lol

Reread again. So, are you continuing to breed or only as you need more?

Still trying.. am looking at different salinity, temperatures and phyto cultures.. I have about 10 female amano in a 30lt nanno tank. 2 male amanos are in there also so i have myself my own amano larva factory lol.
14days in phyto mix seems to be the point where things are lost so itís a long trial and error process.
Any suggestions are welcome

This is on my list of inks to try. I have a few amanos berried and would like to keep their numbers going. Thanks for all the info

Thanks for sharing this. I'm sure all your work will be rewarded, even if it's just bragging rights.
