  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have a small but thriving colony of RCS. Today I noticed one of my berried females looks like she is carrying black berries when viewed from the rear. Usually the berries look whitish from that angle. I can't see them from the side since her shell is pretty opaque. Can they have the babies die...
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I've got a 15G full of Cherry shrimp and I've noticed that I have one with more color than the rest (I think there are a couple more actually). But this guy is a very deep red from mouth to fin. His legs, tail, and literally every inch of him that I've seen are the same bright red. All my...
  3. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Sooner or later into their 'pregnancy'? I ask because my boyfriend and I are considering a growth charting experiment wherein we remove one berried female from our main shrimp tank and separate her off into a (fully cycled) tank devoid of other shrimp. We want to have a control sample of baby...

    My lighting has recently switching from (bad) LED to a florescent tube light. My male cherry shrimp now seem to be a glowing bluish color instead of clear. I am also extremely paranoid that they are maybe going opaque - though I can still see through them and it may just be in my head. Is this...

    Last night I got my first ever Cherry Shrimp! I have been planning to make this a shrimp tank for almost 4 months now and I finally put aside my busy life and did it. I found a local breeder willing to help me out in the hobby, so I finally took the first steps! 15G Tank 2 Aqueon 10W Colormax...
  7. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have a cherry shrimp that is missing an eye. Most of the stalk is gone, though there is a very small piece of black in the middle. The other eye doesn't look so hot either. It is smaller than usual and surrounded by like a whitish/glaucoma looking thing. I am pretty sure one of my old white...
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Well I put up a planted tank about 2 months ago. During this time not only have my plants grown like crazy, but I also have a ton of new life. First it started with these snails. I learned they came from the plants. But there are about 4 different types. There is about 6 egg forms on different...

  10. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have three cherry shrimp, all female in a tank with a few danios and rasboras. They've been fine up until now, and two of my cherry shrimp are pregnant. I've recently noticed that one of the pregnant shrimps has lost all her color and tends to hide more often than the others. How can this be...
  11. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I spent a couple hours yesterday playing with my wifes phone, its a HTC Desire HD with 8.0MP camera and i was wondering how well it would take macro/close ups in my tank. It was no where near fast enough to take pics of my Endlers because they dont stop moving but cories, snails and shrimp are...

    Summary: Fully cycled tank was introduced plants first, then fish, then cherry shrimp. A few weeks later, plants and shrimp are thriving; but the guppies are dying one at a time every couple of days. I've now replaced all of the original fish, and 3 of the 4 new ones have died as well. 5G...

  15. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi gang... I bought 3 MTS last night for .15 cents each. A great deal, eh? LOL! I also bought a pair of Bumblebee shrimp, put them all in the Cherry Shrimp tank. (Invert only, aside from a pair of fish fry that I still haven't identified...) Anyway, all was going well last night, the...
  16. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Back on Wednesday, October 14, (two weeks ago!) approximately 20 Cherry Shrimp were sent to me by a fellow member of our forum. They got lost in the mail. After those 14 days they finally arrived in their little bag in a new box... the post office damaged the original box the sender sent them...
