Anyone else have this experience with orange neos? It took 6 months to break these shrimp in. There were times I thought my colony would crash because of the lack of breeding (about to throw in the towel).

My local water parameters has been pretty good for raising shrimp so...
Idk what's up with oranges and yellows, but they don't breed like PFR's for me. I see saddles, but seeing berried ones are rare. I've kept them in all weird conditions, but I see the most success when they're kept in 6.8, gH 6-8, tds 250
