(The Evolve4 now has about three or four spawns of babies already, that the shrimp were only added three months ago).

I think I started with 12 of these in my 9 gallon cube.

I'll check my tap and tank water and let you know. Might be this weekend.
That would be great. Just let me know what you'd like for them. I have a spare, never used medium smallish piece of mopani if you'd like it too.

Out of curiosity, what is the ph from your tap? I think mine is around 7.4-7.6. Just curious if that's the norm for Nashville.

Heh, that's a horrible pic, too.

I hadn't really thought about it too much. I might turn loose of some. They kind of self regulate their population, so I'd probably not even miss a few.

How many were you thinking you might want?

I've only got orange neocaridina, so can't help you out. I ended up buying online.

Jill I originally got mine online too. I will definitely go that route if I can't find them locally. Thanks.

Jill Heart of Nashville here. If anyone locally has PFR for sale, I would love some. I had a tank of them until I left for a week during the winter and their heater went out. I have one lonely little bright red girl left. She needs her colony back. Last time I checked Aquatic Critter, they only had regular RCS....not nearly as red as what I'm looking for.

Klinckman I've decided on super tiger shrimp, I'm also tempted by the Orange rili...

Klinckman I've been thinking about getting some shrimp for my high-tech planted, currently housed are Rummynose tetras, CandyCane Tetra, and Bristlenose plecos.

Thinking about what i want, maybe Amano, Tiger, or Neon Yellow.

Two 5-gallon heavily planted tanks and Bettas Si and Willie and one RCS survivor in each tank. They don't bother the shrimp; more the other way around. :-)

Glad to find this forum and glad there are more shrimpers in Middle Tennessee; count me in for a meet. I'm retired so I can do whatever's needed.
RCS should do fine with those water parameters
its likely something else.

flippyfloppies Antioch/Nashville here. Tried keeping some ghost shrimp with my betta and he killed all of em

I've got a new 4 gal cube that's itching for some shrimp, I'd definitely be down for a meetup!

tlyons01 Clarksville here. I have fire reds, amanos, Neon yellows and crystal reds. I have some amano that are so big I need to move them to crazydaz's 200 gallon tank so they can look small again.. Monsters they are
