Richard at day 66 you were adding fresh water. What % of fresh water were you adding and for how long till they were fully acclimatized to fresh water? I have read in other attempts that this when many shrimp were lost.

I really had a bad time with this (in terms of knowledge base).I was scared of keeping the zoes in marine for too long because if I lost them at this stage then the last two months would have been for nothing (if you know what I mean). I should have waited much longer as I now believe this would have increased survival.

I have my own new ideas about identifying when the zoes would be ready for fresh water, but want to practice this before sharing (as I could be wrong).

Are you attempting this yourself?

Right now I am working on another specie. Brackish to full salt back to brackish.
I am considering the amano in the coming months. Seems like more fun in a sadistic way.

I would only call it fun at first.. two months of pushing your nose up to green water shining a torch light in can get a bit too winded. lol

Reread again. So, are you continuing to breed or only as you need more?

Still trying.. am looking at different salinity, temperatures and phyto cultures.. I have about 10 female amano in a 30lt nanno tank. 2 male amanos are in there also so i have myself my own amano larva factory lol.
14days in phyto mix seems to be the point where things are lost so itís a long trial and error process.
Any suggestions are welcome

Thanks for sharing this. I'm sure all your work will be rewarded, even if it's just bragging rights.
