First berried shrimp!
I am really excited as this is my first foray into keeping shrimp (other than amanos) in a tank. I set up a Spec V about 3 months ago and went through the fishless cycle, got hardscape and plants and then let things settle down for a couple of weeks. Now, I had a planted tank many years ago and it was always fish only with amanos for algae control. I then came across the wild type tiger and super tiger shrimp and fell in love. With all of the CRS/CBS, Taiwan bees and othe caridinas and all of the "easy to keep" neos the tigers were really the ones I wanted.
Well, then came along my first born and with his arrival came the departure of the planted tank. Now, about 6 years later I set up the above tank and have added my beloved tigers. Current stock list is 12 Chili Rasboras and 9 original Tigers. All the snails in the pics came as free gifts on plants! I am very excited (probably not that big a deal but it has been a long time coming for me) because I now have my first berried Caridina cantonensis sp Tiger! Here are some pics for your perusal. The first is a whole tank shot as of today, the second is one saddled and the third is one berried.
