LOL sorry, Bryce. It was just a pipe dream to have a new species of shrimp come out of a hobbyist :p

LOL You flatter me sir.

Made the decision to use an air conditioner for my shrimp room and use a compression rod and shower curtains to block off the open doorway and keep in the cool...

Usually I don't worry about temps in my apartment, but with the new shrimpy additions I can forsee my bill increasing this year

Trying to keep their tank 75 and below.

Yeah, my oebt and pseudo TiBs shrimp temp flux is all over the place. I just set up an air conditioner but because of all the electrical equip in my shrimp room it keep tripping the breaker. So, next is to try an extension cord to another part of the house...

Sorry to hear about the loss Bryce which mutations did it happen to?
How are the Hybrids doing for ya? Temp was never to much a problem for me with them.

The hybrids are hardy as can be! Wish all my shrimp were like them. Haven't had a single problem with them. They are in 6.3 right now, thinking about moving some to 7+ and seeing if they are just as hardy since they don't appear interested in breeding right now.

The deaths happened to some mutations I had on standby. One of which was the boxers. I don't see a single one anymore...
