My -last two- CRS after a tank disaster have bred!


A couple months ago I went out of town and my AC flipped to 85f for a week. I came back and there were about five out of 50 or so very nice CRS left, but three of them ended up dying off. I moved the last two to a smaller tank filled with java moss in hopes of keeping them alive until I could re-seed a new colony to add them to.

I checked in on them the other day and one of them is berried. I've been keeping a close eye on them and they're very happy, busy and are eating the algae I drop to them. It made my day.

I also lost some rillis, oebts and yellow neos. The whole thing has me rethinking my shrimp strategy.

What would you guys reccomend for food to encourage breeding and shrimplet growth? I hear nothing but good things about Jakes but am not 100% sure which of his stuff to order.
