I'm sure we will in due time . Serious breeders normally have secret breeding tanks that the general public have no clue about until the new shrimp becomes public.

Probably good we are sticking to the widely available shrimp (in general) as opposed to the rarer colors, too.

You know, we often refer people to other sites for params. Maybe we should just do our own huge chart/photos for shrimp params here at TPT? The most comprehensive ever?

I'd always heard that Blue Bee shrimp were Paracaridina. Has this changed or am I just confused?

Alright! Good one!

We can try and add *suggested* parameters at the side of the names.

But this is kind of a debatable topic.

TDS, PH, GH, KH.

Let's leave other parameters as obvious. Example: Some people believe that no3 should be zero and some keep them in 45ppm.... So, let's not start a debate.

* there is many exceptions.

TDS really means nothing, IMO. You can EI dose and get TDS into 400-500. I guess if it matters at all, it would be for water changes and tap water.

Don't forget the various Babaulti and Fan shrimp species.

Or the debated "Dark Green" species.

29g high tech, 10g low tech halfmoon, and please see my 5g crescent journal.
