ryl_dsz yes i'm aware the larvae need brackish water. But it takes a good number of day for the eggs hatch into larvae. I have put the berried female in 3 gal tank and seen it for my self the eggs as completely dropped as they are no hatching and no zoes.

Soothing Shrimp You guys are aware that the larvae need brackish water to survive, right?

ryl_dsz I had multiple batches over a period of time. I was facing the same problem of eggs being dropped.

Axelrodi202 How old is the female. Years ago when I first got my Amano shrimp, my female got berried for quite often and held the eggs for a good time, but as the years went on she started getting berried less, and holding the eggs for less time.

Sorry for the late reply. In what environment are you keeping ur amanos like ph,gh,kh, temp, etc. Do u have any idea. What could u and me must not be doing right that we don't get zoes.

ryl_dsz gezz i know i'm replying after way too many months but would be grateful if some one could provide a reply regarding my amanos dropping eggs and not releasing the zoes. Over the months i happened to test my water parameters PH 7, Kh 3, Gh 4. I am facing the same problem when my temperature is about 28 - 29 degrees in summer as well as in winter about 20 - 23 degrees.

ryl_dsz Dear friends i have been trying to breed amanos for quite some time now almost 7+ months. The issue i am facing from the very beginning is that the berried female never seems to carry the eggs for more 48 hrs. I am trying to figure this out but am unable too. I have also seperated them into a small 5 gallon tank when they get berried but still the problem of them dropping the eggs within 48hrs continues. Could someone provide some insight into this.

Thank You,

Ryel
