thanks guys! that link doesnt work btw...

CRS in the bowl is doable, but I can't seem to get them to breed well yet. we'll see. getting the cherries wasnt that hard, just drain it half way, get a brine shrimp net in there and try to net out as many as you can. it may take a few tries each day but youll get them all out eventually.

Should be able to. I think I found it at a Walmart last December. This time of year it should be pretty readily available.

I was inspired to start my own shrimp bowl because of this thread. So far I have the bowl, LED light and Tahitian Moon black sand. I'm working out the cloudiness from the substrate ferts I incorporated into the black sand. Once I get it planted I'll start my own thread.

Thanx Newman for the inspiration.

unfortunately, i still dont see them. one of the females definitely dropped eggs but the original female with the eggs still has a few. why she is hanging on to them for so long, idk.(she may even be saddled again, and she still wont let them go o_o ) they look clearish white as opposed to brown-black as they started.

This happen to me, they drop their eggs when they are ready to mate again. But very few did that.

Sorry if you covered this before. But I am curious what was the largest number of shrimp in the tank at any given time?

largest number of shrimp was when the cherries were still in here. that was two large adults and roughly 30 small juveniles lol. the juveniles always got moved out quickly, once they got big enough, to not pollute the tank.

Though i think 5 adult shrimp is a good number to have in this bowl.(if not breeding)
