  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    This may be a noob question but... If I had two neocaridina shrimp but both were different colors, (ex. Cherry Red and Snowball White.) could they still possibly breed? Not worried about the color of the offspring. Just simply wondering whether I could possibly get some baby shrimp?
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I've been debating for months on what setup I want to use for breeding dwarf ornamental shrimp. Here are some ideas? 1: 20L on metal stand with (5) 2.5gal on bottom shelf for selective breeding All ran with individual sponge filters 2: (2) 15gal on a 48" by 12" metal stand with up to (8)...

    I'm not sure if this is an issue or not, but I ordered a few blue rilis and one of them turned out to be green. If they breed will I get blue rilis, green rilis, or something else?

  5. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hello! I bought five red cherry shrimp about a month and a half ago. I am sure I have three females and two males. Most females began to get their saddles about three weeks ago, but I still haven't seen any berried females. Nowadays most of shrimp hide for the whole day and don't do anything...
  6. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I was doing a w/c on my OEBT/Red 10G tank yesterday and realized that I already have two different groups of PFR/RCS/Sakura shrimplets! One group of at least 6 were born last Wednesday (I think), and are clearly red tinged (< 1/8"). Then, I found a bunch of shrimpies that are extremely tiny...
  7. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I was infected by the planted tank bug and that has led me to wanting to do a shrimp tank (most likely a 40 breeder). Besides tank size I have nothing else figured out. I am planning on buying a home soon and do not want to have to move shrimp so I have been reading and reading about all kinds...

  9. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    One of the LFS that I frequent has a tank of what appear to be these shrimp. Been contemplating taking a few home (they're a bit pricey, but I should be able to swap for partial credit), but I really want to know more about them - especially their breeding habits - before I commit to it...

  12. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I got some new Crystal Red Shrimp last week and now one of them is Preggers ( as my wife likes to call it.) What is my best option for an in tank breeding area? I have a 29 gal, no other tank and I don't want the fish to eat all the babies.. Oh and how long do I have until they are hatched?
