they are crazy little shrimp.
so far, i have only managed to get some decent results from a group of dark shrimp i put in a five gallon. there are more babies than i can count.
the other two groups i put together were all a bit on the small side, but are much bigger now. so, hopefully, ill get some babies out of them soon.
odd thing about the dark group, they seem to be producing mostly dark shrimp and blue shrimp. they are still pretty small though, so the blue shrimp may turn out darker. if not, at least its a clue as to what is involved in the dark shrimp. it may just be that they are just red malawas with a strong presentation of blue.
i havent put them under the microscope yet, but i think i have enough babies now to risk losing a few. ill see if i can get some close up pics this weekend.
