isolating berried ghost shrimp
I bought a few ghost shrimp about a month ago and added them to my turtle's tank, understanding that he would likely eat them (and the mystery snails I added at the same time). He has NOT eaten anyone and they are growing and I noticed today that one of them is berried! Everything I've read says to move momma to a nursery tank, but I just don't have the room, equipment, or energy for another tank. Turtle, shrimp and snails are in a 46 G bowfront and I'm in the process of setting up a 75 G to move everyone to (done cycling with some happy zebra fish, but want to do a bit more scaping before moving everyone over.
1. Anyone have a good breeder box recommendation?
2. Or would a 1 gallon fish bowl be OK with a heater and sponge filter?
3. Two of my mystery snails were mating yesterday, so I'm hoping for baby snails as well, would it be OK to put both moms together in a 1 gallon?
4. How long do I have to incubate a sponge for the sponge filter in one of the cycled tanks to get it ready to jump start the breeder bowl/tank?
Nice to see life is moving forward for the little creatures in this crazy cooped up time!
