LOL sorry, Bryce. It was just a pipe dream to have a new species of shrimp come out of a hobbyist :p

LOL You flatter me sir.

Made the decision to use an air conditioner for my shrimp room and use a compression rod and shower curtains to block off the open doorway and keep in the cool...

I know the feeling. Lost some shrimp during the small heat wave we just had here.

Usually I don't worry about temps in my apartment, but with the new shrimpy additions I can forsee my bill increasing this year

Trying to keep their tank 75 and below.

10G - Low Tech Planted [ Chocolate Neos, MTS, Tracked Nerite / Anubias Nana, Windelov Java Fern, Water Wisteria, Dwarf Sag ]
29G - Non Planted Native Tank [ Creek Chub, Yellowfin Shiners, MTS / Water Wisteria ]

Yeah, my oebt and pseudo TiBs shrimp temp flux is all over the place. I just set up an air conditioner but because of all the electrical equip in my shrimp room it keep tripping the breaker. So, next is to try an extension cord to another part of the house...

The hybrids are hardy as can be! Wish all my shrimp were like them. Haven't had a single problem with them. They are in 6.3 right now, thinking about moving some to 7+ and seeing if they are just as hardy since they don't appear interested in breeding right now.

The deaths happened to some mutations I had on standby. One of which was the boxers. I don't see a single one anymore...
