This mixed batch F3 Amano shrimp larvae coming along nicely. They’re growing at 24 ppt. The 1/2 gallon brackish water are not filter and do not have 24 hrs lighting.

After several batch end in failure. Finally got something going for breeding F3 Amano shrimp larvae.
Previous batch never live passed 20 days and their shell never color up orange.After added 12 drops Nutrafin african cichlid conditioner per gallon to increases the General Hardness, then see their shell orange up and continue growing.
Local water department softened the water by 5GH. Tap water becomes a little soft for the larvae to grow their shell. Not enough CaCO3.

Interesting, the larvae I have doesn't seem to swim like that.

Are these feeding off the algae only?

Edited.

I gether the larvae with a light source to video them. Adding some salt water and freshwater micro algae when the brackish green water getting lighter. Got two species of micro algae culture going for some time.
Micro algae I used in actual can culture in salt or brackish water and freshwater water.

Trying to up the yield with blend activated carbon/ammonia neutralizing zoelite bag and amonia reducing pad hang above the foam filters. Feeding the larvae with CRS baby food 2 to 3 times a day. API ammonia testing the brackish water daily. Trying to scale an up and hopefully have a better yields.

Are you able to estimate your survival rate through each stage at this point?

You mentioned about 30 earlier in the thread but things appear to have improved based on the videos.

From past experience, survival rate on F1 was 100 Plus and F2 , over 200 plus.
Is a learning experience, building on past experience and trying new way to magnate their environment and water quality.
Hopefully things going their ways and got 3 to 4 hundred surviving F3 Amano shrimp.
