I have kept mine in salinities from 1.005 up to 1.025 (an initial mistake with buyer--there were some deaths). They act just as happy and vigorous and colorful at 1.005 as at 1.012. Willow moss will make it just fine at 1.005 and japanese moss balls up to 1.008. Note: I have a small colony of a dozen and am not interested in breeding. Just hanging....

MrCain Thank you so much for this thread and keeping it updated Rob! I just spent most of my morning reading it straight through.

These shrimp look so amazing and their environment seems so foreign and unique to me!

This really makes me tempted to setup yet another tank.......crap

Rob in Puyallup All tanks are producing. Shows that our favorite shrimp aren't picky!

KenP It great to know that the uneverything is also successful for you.

Rob in Puyallup The un-everything ten gallon tank, Ken. There are some larvae in the other tanks, too, as well as a few berried females.
