ooooo that is one long and tragic story.

they were doing great, but one very cold spring day someone in the house decided to put the bowl outside for the whole day and night and they basically died overnight because of very cold temps. I brought in the bowl then next day and none were alive. This happened last spring. I've had yellows in here ever since.

Lame since around the same time i had PFRs outside in a huge 40gallon tub in the same cold (though their tub had a heater) and they did fine over the course of weeks at low 40Fs, maybe less.

That does sound tragic. I really liked seeing them thrive in such a small bowl. Do you thiunk you will try them again? Maybe some tigers?

no, I will only do Neocaridina in this small bowl. maybe in a larger bowl one can try tigers or super low grade crystals, but i don't need another bowl right now haha. too many tanks!

The main problem for caridina in bowl like this (after you got everything else right) is temperature changes in summer and winter. they will not breed when it gets too hot, and they dont like shifting temps.

Neos dont care.

I think my yellow shrimp are trying to evolve into land crustaceans. Photo is of one of them coming out of the water and eating stuff off water lettuce above the water surface.

The water line is marked by the lowest blue mark on the photo. I didn't catch it in the photo, but the antennae were waving around in the air - it was rather funny to look at.

I also found some of my shrimps lying on the floor. Never thought before that they could jump out of the bowl.

yes they do jump if the water level is too high or they dislike the bowl. i haven't had that happen in a while. back when i had SS crystals in here, i mysteriously lost a lot of them over the course of a 2 week vacation i took. it was summer, it got past 80F in the bowl, they probably hated it and either died and got eaten by the survivors, or jumped out. i never found bodies anywhere though...maybe they jumped far.

Looking wild and jungle like! My shrimp do that a lot too! They love the bio film that builds up on top of the tank!!

I've had it spread to the substrate and take root there but I've tried doing it intentionally.

I will be selling my sulawesi snails very soon from my 40gallon community tank. Ideally they would be happy in a sulawesi setup, but anything with similar water parameters will do. I am selling all of these as a group.

Here are all the ones I'm selling:
One Adult Orange Poso Snail (usually worth $10 a snail)


Three adult Yellow poso Snails (really nice bright colors on these guys and their shell pattern is amazing




Fourteen Orange Spotted Poso Snails (a mix of adults, and juveniles. great looking snails, and their shells come in three main colors)



They have either jet black shells:

Sort of Polished-wood colored shells:

Or golden-colored shells (my favorite):


I will also add 3 adult Ramshorn snails for free. They look like leopard ramshorns when young, but grow into a blueish-looking shell:


That's 18 sulawesi snails total, and I am asking $50.00 for all of them shipped. That includes heatpack, priority shipping, double insulated box, breather bags, live arrival guarantee on every snail, and a tracking number on the package. It may seem like a lot of money but it's only about $2.70 per snail which I think is a very good price. I will be making a post in the S&S section soon. just waiting on my priority boxes atm.
