That's what I've been trying to get people to do. Lord knows it is beyond my ability, but not for others. I would LOVE to see a show like that- or at least participate in one. What a great goal to have!

I can't imagine why one wouldn't be possible. All you'd need is a location with a lot of nearby breeders

Wouldn't even need nearby. Certain shrimp shows accept shrimp from all around the country. We have express shipping here in America.

Don't know if they need any special substrate. Rumors have it that they have crystals breeding in 8ph water. Never been there. Don't know that for a fact.

If that is true I wouldn't mind starting a batch.

I would just hop on board with the shrimps. Around 6 hours across the US vs Overnight.

I've breed low grade CBS on 8+ ph before with pure tap water in a 5g. Granted I didn't get a large population because the tank was dirty and very few water change.
