Are these the one's that you got from me?

acitydweller 11-12-2012 08:26 PM

yay for you... but why did it take so long?

AVN 11-12-2012 08:34 PM

Also curious as to why it took so long, I just got some RCS not even a month ago and already the only adult female is berried.

ThatGuyWithTheFish 11-12-2012 08:40 PM

Holy moly that's way too long for RCS to start breeding. I think that they would be at the end of their life cycles, too.

dam...12 month...i got cherry from members here and they are already breeding and baby hatching right and left.

Curt_914 11-12-2012 10:27 PM

Naw the 12 months I think my problem was all I had were males, or they didnt like the tank. I put like 12 from my 55 before my discus went in that tank a couple years ago. But none of the shrimp ever seemed to berry up.

I got 12 From ghost shrimp sakura grade juvies about 1.5 months ago, I also had a group I got from another member who got out of the hobby around the same time. About 2 weeks ago after quarintine I moved them in to the 20, I have around 40 shrimp in there after I combined them. And now have berried females! I am hopeing they dont drop there eggs but they should be fine. Will keep you all posted and try to get some pics tonight.

So As promised here a a couple pics;

And there are 40 more photos at my photobucket album,

Some pics arnt very clear but you get the idea. I hop to get a better camera soon enough.

And lastly my Lone CRS that I have found.


ThatGuyWithTheFish 11-13-2012 08:00 PM

That's not a CRS it's a red rili.

Curt_914 11-13-2012 08:08 PM

If it is cool all the beter. When I bought a package I was told they were RCS, CRS, And some Chocolates. They were shiped the water was murkey and I lost some on the way to my house. Most I can tell that survived were RCS, and some that I would call low grade PFR. Take a look at my photobucket and let mr know what you guys think I have. I will start to selectivly breed as soon as I have space to do so.

CRS= Crystal Red Shrimp

Congee 11-13-2012 08:10 PM

Congrats! The last picture looks like a rilli though?
