Congrats on the babies. Just be careful over feeding. I saw my CPDs doing there dance around the java moss ball thing I have. Just have no means in separating anything at the time so unless they are careful they wont make it.

Can CPD fry overeat and die like tetras? I haven’t seen any issues so far. They seem to get fat, then leave any food alone.

I’m jealous! I don’t know what’s up with these shrimp. I had a 5 gallon years ago that went nuts, even with some neglect. I’m starting to dose small amounts of fertilizer, since I dosed that tank. Saddles are getting larger on a few females. Maybe I’ll get lucky? If more eggs are dropped I’m going to attempt to save them, check them out under a microscope. Maybe I could rig up an egg tumbler.

whelp... dropped eggs this morning

I woke up early and did some things with the 29. I decided to try to make an egg tumbler for when they decide to drop eggs next. Then when everyone was awake, fed the baby fish, and I notice a clutch of dropped eggs. I will get a pic of the tumbler in action... if it works. Here are two shots of an egg, one of the anterior/posterior, I'm not sure which. But they seem to be fertilized, lots of divisions already!





Edit: The tumbler works! I cut a small piece of of plastic tubing, and some gallon jug lids fit nice and snug. Airline tube inserted into the bottom and some tulle to stop anything getting in on the top lid. I added some moss to keep the eggs suspended and they are wiggling in the current.

Oh no not that I know of. I was just thinking of keeping things clean. Just a friendly reminder (I have to remind myself all the time that just because my fish act like they are starving the fat bellies say otherwise)
