Boat load of F4 survived. Are they became more adapted to artificial rearing or improved in husbandry. Difficult to say. They looks to grow faster than F3. F3 is grow slow and smaller shrimps.

I don't know how you do it! Finally found some true amanos locally... and the stores had a "buy 3, get 4th free" deal... where-in they *conveniently* had THREE or less shrimp during the entire freaking sale........ (damn COVID hours and working same day as shipments... couldn't get in before they closed) except on the last day, they actually had some left... but I only managed to get 7 in total... so far, no breeding from them... but it seems the YKK's are going nuts!

Became to notice that their dark marking dashes and dots less visible and as generations go by, might become a false Amano shrimp ?

Was curious about the dots and dashes... but I really don't think they are the same as false amanos... body shape is just different... that is, the "false amanos" appear "thicker" to me, particularly the females... where-as true amanos are more streemlined. Kind of like the build of a great dane vs a mastiff.... both big dogs, but one is more lean/thinner where-as the other is thicker bodied/bigger boned.

I've also had a male amano in with female false amanos and the false ones never berried up... not until I introduced males of the false variety into the tank.

First time, F4 came fighting for their algae wafers.

Added some bio diversity in the larvae rearing tank. MTS doesn’t seems actively hunting the shrimp larvae.

On second thought, they do hunt. Removed and replaced with some baby MTS.

The larval shrimp certainly seemed interested in the snail! Still haven't seen a berried amano on my end....

Thought to give the larvae some snails slime to graze on and the snails end up mopping them up one at a time.

Setup another tank with effective population of 30 (15 males and 15 females) for fifth generation. A group of 30 shrimp should get enough genetic diversity in next generation or might not. Or the F5 might not happened.

The dots and dashes were quickly drift out from F3 and they are some how look like a false Amano.

F4 Amano shrimp color variable also. Take about awhile for them to color up differently.
