Powerful air pump, lots of plants, and I siphon it (very carefully) when doing water changes on the ebi.

Did you block out the outflow from the breeder box with sponge or something?

Of course can't have microscopic OEBTs all over the tank!

Doesn't it outflow back into the tank from the hanger arm?

Yea there's a little grate over it that you can't really see in the pix.

Noticed something cool today, same shrimp, December '11 to Feb '12


White faded a little right after the berries but now it's back to looking painted on. Both my favorite crs ended up being female and now have berries!

Default Shrimplets!!

Came home to find these little guys everywhere. All over the tank. There are so manyyy and this is only the first round! Still 4 more berried shrimp!

It was sooo hard to get decent pictures...





Mom-shrimp on the left, shrimplet on the far right frogbit root


This one's only got a teeny spot of color on it's face


Blending in with the frogbit


And two of the known males



Can't wait till the others hatch!! There's already 15-20 new babies in the tank!

So the tank is now littered with little grey, maroon, and red shrimplets...still 2 berried shrimp that should be having babies soon. Also bought them some new food, "Ebita Breed CRS Food". They swarmed it

Thanks everyone!!

There's some sad news today though, checked on the tank to find this one breathing heavily, then dead 15 minutes later. None of the other shrimp are distressed and everything's fine, but I did a 10% waterchange just to be safe.

One of the nicest looking ones I had, but also the oldest, so maybe that was the cause
RIP

Aw.. why did you take a picture of it dead It even was a no-hino CRS. But if it was the only one I think you should be fine.

Making sure nothing looked 'unusual' about it...but it's not all white inside like if it was a disease or anything. I'm hoping that he's got some shrimplets somewhere in the tank
