  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So - I am back and I had success recently with my shrimp! My three actually turned out to be 2 females and 1 male. Earlier last week I noticed two of them were carrying eggs and just today after placing a new almond leaf, alder cone, rock, driftwood, and 2 new plants yesterday - the sides of my...

  3. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi, I’m relatively new to the shrimp-keeping hobby, so I’m definitely inexperienced. I have an 8.75 G planted tank with 9 Bloody Mary shrimp, 3 Mystery Snails, and a LOT of pest snails (which I don’t mind). I’ve had the tank for about 4 months and have had the shrimp for around 3, and I saw one...

    Afternoon all, I've been keeping cherry shrimp for around a year with no problems. I currently have them in a planted tank with three white wizard snails. Recently I've been experiencing a high number of deaths. I've probably lost around 20 in the last month, a couple of times I've lost as many...

    Hi all! I’m new here and need some advice. I keep Blue Dream shrimp. I recently purchased a few new ones and when I got home I discovered that I got 3 berries females.

    I have quite a few blue velvets, and I've noticed that in all of the pictures of small aquarium shrimp that I've seen, I've never actually seen a purple variation. I know the basics of color say that red and blue make purple, but I also know that red cherry shrimp and blue velvet will make...
  8. The Lounge & Introductions
    Hi folks. I first joined this forum some years ago when embarking on a 60L planted tank, and then drifted off into houses, marriages and kids, eventually getting around to running a nice Juwel 260 bow-front tank as a heavily-planted fresh-water tropical setup. At it's peak it was pretty much...
  9. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi, Im doing a 12 hour move in 2 days with a shrimp tank that has at least 15 shrimp including babies. It’s a planted tank with driftwood. My plan was to remove the plants & driftwood into a container with tank water an hour before to let the water settle and then remove the shrimp into another...

    I'm planning on starting a 20 galon unheated planted aquascape (64-74 degrees F) and I was wondering what I could stock it with. I know for sure that I want cherry shrimp, but I don't know what shrimp safe coldwater fish are out there. Any suggestions? I was thinking maybe a small killifish or...

  13. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hello all, Wasn't sure where this post should go in terms of categories because it kind of fits in multiple categories. I have a few tanks, but they are all in rooms or angled away from my office setup while working from home. So I wanted to do something small for the desktop and decided to...
  14. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hi all, I've been lurking around the forum but decided to join and solicit some advice. I have a 5 gallon planted nano tank that I began in May 2020. It is planted with an anubias, some alternanthera, bucephalandra, and juncus repens. The tank is taller than wide so those all make it pretty...
  15. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So I accidentally started a 30gal planted tank a few months ago while trying to grow lotuses, and it's turned into somewhat of a shrimp-and-tetra paradise. Today when gazing upon the accidental fruit of my labors, I noticed my largest Amano shrimp fanning its underbelly- and spotted clusters...

    Hey everyone, I have a 10 gallon planted tank with around 5-7 guppies, 2 males and the rest females. I recently got some RCS to add to the tank. On the first batch, I had a few die from around 9. Two weeks later, I bought some more, with a total of probably around 20. Now I can only find four...

    I'm looking to get into shrimp just for fun, not looking to be on the front lines or the morph market. So, nothing too $pendy. Caradina mostly Red/Black Bee, maybe some Orange or Yellow Neos. Does anyone know of any in the Harrisburg PA area? (Petco, nope - PetSmart, hell no!) Thanks, Mark
  20. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    What's everyone's preferred temperature for keeping and breeding Caridina (mixed bees?) What about Neocaridina (Bloody Mary?) In the late summer my temperatures were going to high for them, so I removed the heaters, however now that winter is here the temps are dropping pretty low. It's an old...
