Really? How big did they get? Where did you get them?

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!

Blue leg posos is big as ghost shrimp. I think it was because I wasn't feeding protein enough.

I have this, sorry it's sideways. It's the driftwood in the tank, the cardinals spend a lot of time under it upside down. The underside is literally covered 100% with cardinals of all sizes

Here's one that's blurry of the berried one on the glass, if you squint you can see the eggs:

The tank is black lava rock for substrate, has a chunk of driftwood some tubes, that's all. I have a sponge filter, and a canister. The canister has just bio media and also bags of crushed coral to keep pH high.

Parameters are pH 8.2, KH 5, gh 8, temp 82

Just keeping them in there, I started with one berried female last feb, and now I have hundreds.
How about TDS? I really like those shrimp, and they seem to be one of the few I could keep by mixing my rock hard well and RO/DI water.

See now you did it! My well water is liquid rock, pH 8.2 with a TDS of 400 or so. Can't type any more, got to look around for the space for another tank

Seriously, I have been thinking about trying these shrimp, thanks for the info.

Dang, Liam, you're REALLY making me wanna set up a cardinal tank. My tap stinks, need distilled for all of my tanks, except for the endlers guppies, my water so hard.

I am local, and if the time (and price) is right, I will be interested in getting some of yours...

Rob, I've made some changes recently and am going to abandon the cardinals for the time being and just concentrate on the bee line. Let me know if you want them I'll sell or trade them to you for something too cheap to mention. I've got a couple yellow rabbits to go with if you decide you want to give them a go.

Re: Berried cardinal

Is tempting. Lol! If you still have them when the tank is set we can trade. :-)
