Well, over the last week I have noticed that 3 of my Amano Shrimp are now carrying eggs. I have about 13 total Amano shrimp and when I got them originally none were carrying eggs. Needless to say I am fairly excited having Amanos reproducing. I have seperated the 3 shrimp to a 5 gallon barebottom tank and added some salt to it. Has anyone here sucessfully hatched/raised Amano shrimp that can offer me some tips? I've searched the web, but the info I've found is kinda sparse.

Thanks,

Jeremiah

I know adding a bit of iodine to the tank may help shrimp, but since they're reproducing, I think you've probably already got a handle on things.

I have been trying to decide between Amano and Red Cherry shrimp for control of hair algae. Have heard that the Amano love hair algae and they are less expensive. :)
