I'm not so sure that's a saddle... I may be wrong though.

You are. Look at the upper back of it, it's not as clear as it could be due to the coloration of the shrimp but it's there


Congrats mate! Sell me some when they get going wont you?

I am 100% certai it is. It is a very small saddle mind you but it is her first.

Pm I will certainly hook you up if i get them going. It's one thing to get them to breed, another to get the babies to survive, or so I am told. A month and a week without a single loss, fingers crossed haha.

Thanks for correcting me, it looked weird because on my female shrimp, the saddle is very thick even through a thick shell. It's probably because I've never messed around with tigers before. Congrats though!

No worries aquatic it took her coming to the glass for me to be certain. My supreme reds have much much much larger saddles.

I do not have the ebi ten yet. I will have to pick some up once I get all my loot from this snow storm lol. I am currently using mosura bt-9, old sea mud powder and tonic pro lol. Something seems to be working so far haha.
