jhwku I use the pps-pro guide from GLA's website. I also purchased one of their kits of dry ferts and had great growth with the EI guide but this tank is much smaller so converting to liquid made much more sense.

I had a question about the berried shrimp above. Will her spawn females be as dark as her or lighter color like regular cherrys?

She was walking weird this morning so I dont know if this is the first time shes been berried or what it was very odd compared to others I have seen.
I also used Fluval Stratum for shrimp aquarium, currently I only use Seachem Excel and no liquid fertilizer, if I were to use liquid fertilizer how many ppm of NO3, PO4, K, Ca, Mg and Fe should I add? It's only been 3-4 days since I set up the tank.

jhwku She has either dropped some eggs or figured out how to move some because she is fuller under her tail and the bulge is gone

inthepacific oo ouch it looks like the berries might have dropped down in a weird way and she got stretched a little. that just my guess since they usually breed after they molt maybe she was still a bit soft and this happened. but just a thought. she should be fine hopefully

jhwku Thanks I have 2 females that are dark and 2 that are lighter in color. Shes normally dark all the way around. These were bulging out the side and she was walking like it was painful. We shall see what happens hopefully more pretty shrimp.

rodcuda Good looking RCS, I would call that a Sakura rather than a plain RCS. It does look really strange. It may just be a clear spot or she has some damage to her shell. She may still carry them to term though. Just have to wait and see.

I know, almost looks like a ectopic pregnancy if that could happen in shrimp.

GeToChKn What of soil is that, looks like Aquasoil and Neo's don't usually do well in a low ph/gh/kh water, which Aquasoil does. What are you params.


That said, that is a weird egg position for being berried, almost looks like it's bursting out the side. :S

Question about Red Cherry Shrimp

I have a small population of red cherrys that I have been trying to get to breed. 4 of my females are saddles for the last couple of weeks. I woke up this morning to one of my females looking like this. It doesnt look like shes berried, you can only see the eggs on one side and they are like bulging out of that side. Could this mean she is dropping her eggs and didnt reproduce? Some help or advice would be much appreciated.
