Uggghh...dead shrimp. Just one but still...when you don't have many to begin with, a dead one seems like a big deal. Others doing fine, I figure it's just one of those things. It was a larger one so it could have been age, I don't know. Regardless...I hate loosing live stock. I had a dead RCS the other day too, different tank. Even though there are over 100 in the tank, one dead one still stresses me out for a bit watching and wondering if that's just the first of a major crash...of course it isn't, but still. Guess that's one of the growing pains of a new shrimp keeper...lol

Are those the shrimp I gave you? They are looking fantastic! Don't worry if a single shrimp dies. It can be from a bad molt, age or other normal issues. If you see more than one at a time, that is when you should begin to investigate. Soon enough they'll breed up a storm. Overfeeding is the main reason shrimp died for me outside of that.

Yeah, just one. I figured it was just a thing...but when there's only a dozen, one is a lot...lol

And yeah, your shrimp and there are at least five babies that I have seen. Four yellows and an orange/red one. Kinda weird, not sure where it came from but it's definitely a baby and if not from the same mom, it was born the same day as the baby yellows. It's the only reddish baby in the tank too.

I do need to get a few more males in the tank. There's only one that I see and the rest are saddled females. I'm hoping he gets to work soon so there are more little ones.

Pull out the reddish orange on. It could have been the mutts I was telling you about. If you don't see definite yellow on the other babies soon, those are probably mutts as well. I was down to 3 yellows and by the end of last summer I had upwards of 300. It definitely hurts when you only have a small number, for sure.

Yeah, the other 3 babies are yellow for sure. Not really sure what happened, I had the one berried shrimp that you sent me, then while I was waiting to get the tank setup, I ended up with 4 more berried that would have been yellow babies for sure. But I guess the eggs were dropped when they switched tanks because after that I only saw one berried shrimp and then the babies and there's only 4 like I said. I am surprised there's not been any more berried ones yet. I think things are ok in the tank. They seem to be doing well and the parameters are all good. I'll definitely pull the red one though.

What's the temperature? They breed better for me at 76 - 78 degrees.

Wouldn't it be more humane to get rid of the culled shrimp by netting them out rather than shooting them......

Temps are right in that range.

Sorry. I couldn't help myself.

BTW, you need to get these super yellow shrimp breeding like crazy.

Sewingalot and Chad can't seem to meet demand for these.

Hey...I'm Chad too...lol

Hopefully they will adjust to whatever it is that has them slowed down. I do plan to order some stuff soon from Msjinkzd so I'll probably get some males from her when I order. She said she would sex them and send males if I needed them. Maybe by spring and warmed shipping weather I'll have a population that will help with the demand.
