Shrimp are very adept at find places to hang out. LOL Walls, floaters, plants, floor, etc.

Re: Shrimp breeding

Is there a good guide anywhere for beginner shrimp breeders? I'm seeing things in other forums about mineralization additives and other things and top be quite honest is over whelming! I'd like to get a good grasp on this before I attempt any shrimp breeding. Luckily I have at least a week before I can order some.

Also, in using eco complete as my substrate right now, will that suffice?

What shrimp are you wanting to breed? That will dictate how to setup the tank and what to expect with breeding. Some shrimp you put in water and they breed. Some takes some work on the breeders part to maintain the best conditions possible.
