I guess I'd better do a water change today, bc once they hatch I'll have to wait a while!

Also, new stock coming (I was advised to bring in some genetic variation, in case the first batch were closely related) today or tomorrow.
The saying goes, it didn't happen if there aint no pics.

Technology has been on the back burner lately. I have pics but less motivated to post them to the Internet bc I'd rather read threads!

Congrats!

Do ghosties need brackish?

Although so many different kinds of shrimp are sold as ghosties that each variety likely has its own needs.

Good luck! I hope you have lots of larvae!

I'm going to feed mine bee pollen.

I am at the desktop instead of on the iPad. I can do this!

Can you see the eggs? I took these with my Samsung Ultra Transform Phone.
