Nice tank and shrimp. Good luck with the ghost babies, you don't need luck for the cherries.

Thks Milalic,edited. A killifish egg hatched from the ricca and now resides there. There's a 3 more waiting to hatch. How long does it take the RCS to hatch?

your RCS are sooo red. what are you feeding them?

budd 06-28-2007 09:53 PM

not to get off topic but do u have to do anything special to hatch the ghost eggs?

knuggs 07-02-2007 03:22 AM

Foolish1- I am not sure what I am feeding my shrimp. They are eating some pellets I got from yoink. I also feed them spectra tera small pellets .5mm for protein.

Budd- The ghost shrimp are harder to breed then the rcs. They take about a month to hatch. When the eggs do hatch the are in a larvae state, so most of them get suck up the filter. I have only had two come out of the first batch. I am not sure what the feed on, it could be the bacteria or misc. crap in the water. I would try putting them in an air filtered tank. That way they have a chance to grow out of their larval state.

Thanks starrystarstarr

Foolish1- I found out that the pellets from yoink are from kenfish.com, they are the catfish pellets.

Is the striped one a female or male? What does this mean?
