Filter Cherries

So, I cleaned my only canister filter that is in my main tank 40b last night. Usually I have a few shrimp living in there but last night I pulled out a couple hundred. Some people wonder how hard it is to keep cherries, well... They live in filters! I even had some that we're berried. I'm know I'm not the first that has seen this, just thought I would share cuz of how many there were. Plus I'm bored at work :P which never happens.

I've found 40+ shrimp in my canister too! I use a surface skimmer that connects to the intake, so there is no way to totally block off intake with foam to keep out shrimp. They seems quite happy to be in the bottom of the filter, plenty of food for them to eat, and safe from predators (fish)!

That is alot of shrimp! Thanks for sharing.

How often/rarely do you clean your filter? Is your inlet strainer rather coarse?

Thats along time for filter shrimp. Do they still have red in them? I notice they tend to lose there color if in there for really really long periods.

Lol, they definitely lied to you. Unless they have some weak genes but generally you cant kill these things if you tried.

Lol, yeah its weird though cause they lose alot of color in the filter over time. Most my cherries are of that grade. Have been breeding them 5+ yrs with several colonies. I just sell them as cherries though. I havent been on this forum for the last few years and was super surprised to see what has happened to the shrimp world and all the new variations derived from cherries. Last time I was on the only that that had grades were the CRS and then CBS started showing up. My how the selection has grown now

Its funny you say rarely. Its been less than 3mths maybe 2 1/2 since I have cleaned it last. Its a community tank that is overstocked so I have to clean it often. Theres about 60 fish in a 40b. But yet they still keep a colony mostly because of the subwussertang.

Then intake does have much keeping them out of it. Prolly doesnt help it being right by the subwussertang either.
