Are the survival rate of babies still high at a pH of 7?

All crystals are kept in those conditions. It actually brings out the white much more in their shells. It was a recommendation from my source.

GL with tigers. Def more challenging as far as baby rearing goes.

Thanks! That's Taiwan moss. I also keep mini xmas moss.

I'm not breeding them in the TDS 200 tanks, just keeping them. My breeder tanks which house the mature shrimp are around 170 TDS/pH 6.9.

Thanks Nick and Bryce!

Beautiful Blue neo shot. I so wish someone could stabilize the strain and made it a pure line.

Yup! There's quite a few of them but still all a bunch of juvies. I've already segregated them.

I love and hate you at the same time. How can one person possibly own that many valuable shrimp at one time? T.T
