Nubster Yellows seem to be doing well. Not much to report other than they are alive. Lots of saddles, no berries yet though.

Nubster New shrimp arrived today from Southern Oak Aquatics...

Nubster Yeah, black diamond. Seems to be working out pretty good.

Obakemono Your substrate is black diamond, yes?

Nubster Thanks...I did like it. Tank is no more though. Tore it apart. Only 5 yellows remained in that whole tank. They have been moved to a 20L with sand and a little bit of moss. I need some more green but for now, it will work. No more rock work or fancy setups. Just a straight breeding style setup for my shrimp. Sand, moss, maybe lava rock to provide bacteria housing and some area for biofilm. Otherwise, plane jane. I want to get some good breeding going so I have a nice population of shrimp to watch. No fun watching 5 total shrimp in a 40g tank...lol

flowerfishs 40G breeder is good size tank. I am the same one like yours. I keep cardinal shrimp in it. Yours looks nice.

Nubster This tank has gone to hell. I lost interest and kinda let things go to crap. I am working on getting tanks back in shape now and will be moving the yellows to a smaller (20L) tank hopefully making breeding a little easier for them. Seems that I never really got much out of them in this tank for some reason. I might need to add some new stock as well to help promote some breeding and get things rolling.

Nubster Good to know. There are only like 5 babies from the original berried female that I got that could be tainted, so I guess to be safe I could always remove them. They are not breeding size yet so the berried females I have now are from the original males that I received from sewingalot so they should be pure yellows.

chad320 Yeah, those will be tough to clean up. Even if one looks good it can still put out BP traits for a few generations so I would hold on selling or trading to be sure what youve got for awhile.

Nubster Matter of fact chad, when I got these shrimp from sewingalot, it was an RAOK because the yellows got in with some of her blue pearls and some of the females ended up berried. She couldn't say whether they were mated by another yellow or the pearls. This would have been from this past November/December.

Have these been mixed with Blue Pearls at some point recently(last few years)?

WATduh Very cool tank, Nubster! I love breeder-style tanks. I've never been a huge invert fan, but you caught my interest with this one. I really enjoy watching this tank. Subscribed!
02-28-2012 09:53 PM
somewhatshocked LOVE these shrimp! The "Fire" Yellows I bought from Rachel a few weeks back have been berrying up like woah. Can't wait to be as fancy as sewingalot with all kinds of Yellows.

Can't wait to see how your yellow colony turns out, Nubster.

Nubster Just updating my tank threads. I finally was able to catch the lone RCS that was in the tank. There is one male that needs removed, he is so pale I'd almost call him white which make me wonder if a white variety could be breed out....he is that pale. Of course I'd need pale females too which I don't have. Anyways, I need to get him out and then all my yellows will be pretty solid stock. Still have two berried females and about 5 juvies that are growing up, so the colony is slowly but surely growing.
