shrimpzoo They are still hanging about. Nothing new with them yet.

Might be the weather or they might need a bit more time to adjust lol.

Hobbes1911 Any kanoko updates?

water-kitties I love your tank! I want to keep a pretty mix of crystals and bees but everyone seems pretty down on keeping golden bees. Also thanks for writing your guide, it helped me set up my tank!

Soothing Shrimp Whatever you decide, I'm following closely. I LOVE kanoko shrimp, and would love to see them make a comeback!

I'm hoping for it to be the other way around now lol (since the plan has unexpectedly changed) - sadly I don't have "another"/"a" male TB to get the work done lol. Hopefully now that I have 2 berried shrimp I might get a batch of male TB shrimplets.

Yep they are active around the tank. I can't get a decent picture with them swimming around and grazing.

I may place them into a breeder box so they can find each other to berry easier. Not sure if this would be the best course of action though.

shrimpzoo Well. I stared into my breeder box today to find out 2 surprises.

1. My "male" BKK who was suppose to be a stud for my michlings turned out to be berried. Mixed feelings on that one lol.

2. Another michling is berried so I get to play the waiting game to see if my odds of getting TBs will increase lol.

So hopefully things will run smoothly in my breeder box... and the 'kanoko' shrimp I put in the 30gal seem to be hanging out and in good shape, so all is well (:

Happy to have had this tank run for +1year with no issues lalala~

shrimpzoo @BBXB
Started with roughly 20. Total population is probably in the 200s now.

I do water changes every 6 months. You can read more about how I take care of crystals in my crystal shrimp breeding guide @

- Moved feeding dish as the result of adding new driftwood

They seem to like it so far:

Super nitrate sucking machine lol:

And a bunch of babies in the substrate if you can see them in this low quality shot ):

BBXB Awesome progress and journal. Wondering if you know the rough number you started with/bought and have currently?

bostoneric Love the idea of using a larger breeder box for other purposes!
