  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I recently introduced 5 juvenile blue dream neocaridina shrimp to my nano 3 gallon (heavily planted) tank. Its fairly mature; been running with just plants for the past 4 months. Before I drip acclimated and introduced the shrimp I flushed out the nutrients and flourish excel and replaced with...
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I’ve decided I want to have shrimp again but I got rid of all my small tanks. I have a tank that’s 50L 21H 12W and one that’s 36L 17H 19W inches. Which one would be better for neocaridinas? I’m new here so I’m not sure if I’m even asking in the right place.

    4 out of my 5 orange neocaridina davidi are showing some worrying signs... most of them are not moving much and staying still in same location for a long time. This started about a day ago and still not getting better. There are no visible parasite or any infection on the affected shrimps...

    So, my grandmother has ended up enjoying the shrimp quite a bit, and we've decided to set up a 5 gallon in her room for the Neocaridina so they can be somewhere they can be watched and appreciated. The current plan is to keep it low-tech, and to dry start it for a few weeks before flooding. I'm...

    I'm working to stock a 29g planted community tank and have been contemplating adding shrimp for a while now. Currently, there are aout 15 MTS, a bunch of ramshorn and bladder snails, 2 nerites, a mystery snail, a school or corys (6), and a school of lambchop rasboras (8). The plants...

    So recently moved from Kentucky to Idaho... and had to drive 1,500 miles and transport 14 adult Neocaridina and 20+++ babies and juveniles. I wanted to post about the success as when I was planning the move I tried to search for as much info as I could about this kind of transport. Setup was a...

    Hi all! New to the forum so apologies in advance for any missteps (just let me know). I have a ton of questions regarding Neo care & breeding, but I suspect posting them all on one thread might make a few people crazy, lol, so I’ll start with my main pressing concerns: I am wanting my water...
  8. 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?
    I'm looking to start a second neo tank to put next to my red cherries, and I'm not too picky on the type or grade as long as they aren't another red variant. I'm in Athens, GA so any sellers nearby to decrease shipping cost or have local pickup would be a great bonus. My ideal would be some kind...

  11. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Last night I was watching my shrimp observing the berried shrimp and making sure everything is going well. One of my blue velvets has been carrying eggs for about two or three weeks, so I am anxiously waiting for them to hatch. Here is a decent video of her carrying the eggs: Then, I noticed...
  12. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I just bought 10 juvenile shrimp from a local guy and i was just wondering if it is normal for juveniles to molt this early after being put in a new tank. Or is it just his dead body? do fish only eat the meat or do they eat the shell as well?

    Hi all! I have some blue dream shrimp up for sale. $2.50/ea. Minimum order is 6 and it's local pickup only! Depending on the location I might be willing to meet up as well. San Diego, Ca only! These shrimp are in softer water due to my other tank inhabitants but they're thriving pretty...
  14. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So I just found a neo dead in my 8 gal nano. It was clearly because of a failed molt (white line). But I don't know why it would have failed, I see molts in my tank every other day.. all the other shrimp are doing just fine and I've not had problems before. Why is this happening?
  15. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I got my first group of Neocaridina shrimp the other day. I had a brief encounter with Amano shrimp before they climbed out :( I'm interested to know what grade these are. They were just labeled as cherry shrimp but I asked the guy at the shop and he said that the breeder they get the shrimp...
