mordalphus Yah, yellows and oranges are pickier than red, drove me nuts too

acitydweller My oranges and yellows randomly breed and go on dry spells for weeks to months. the reds thankfully didnt get the memo on that one.

somewhatshocked Could have just been a reproductive dry spell.

My Cherry tank seems to breed the most when there's a major atmospheric pressure shift. Even if temps and other params are stable.

My local water parameters has been pretty good for raising shrimp so...
Idk what's up with oranges and yellows, but they don't breed like PFR's for me. I see saddles, but seeing berried ones are rare. I've kept them in all weird conditions, but I see the most success when they're kept in 6.8, gH 6-8, tds 250

I'll probably try and work out the two solid color variants, I like the look of the orange/red and the solid light orange (pastel). Both very cool.

The Sakura looking one on the heater cord is pretty nice also.

I hope they separate well for you and me too.

Good Luck.

These are really nice too. We should exchange stock somewhere down the line to add diversity.

The last picture is a reverse trio (two males one female). The variation in females is what is interesting to me, those are the big juicy ones. Half of mine were berried so that's definitely a plus.

Showing Off Some of my Newly Acquired Orange Neos

I've decide to show off some of my new oranges. I love the way they look and I got some fat mommas with the shipment I got and have tonnage of babies swimming around now (got them last week).

Note: Shrimps acquired from reefdive. Honestly one of the best deals on shrimp I've made thus far.

I can probably split the them into three strains. Some look like fire oranges, pastel oranges, and sakura oranges.


Pictures of beautiful females, babies, and reverse trio. Enjoy!
