What left is a quarter of them still hanging in there.

Thank you for continuing to document your project! Updates like these are super-cool.

The young really behave similar to Halocaridina rubra, based on your videos, but are much easier to see.

Really looking forward to your future generations of shrimp.

After a water change and spot half a dozen berries Amano shrimp fanning their swimmeret and about to spawn, quickly net them in a breeding box ,
They are F2 larvae from F1, still save some F1 shrimp at no less than four years old. Got myself start breeding them again.
Found a clutch of berries, still born eggs,

I may have accidentally eliminated the aggressive gene from the good old Amano Shrimp by line breeding them.
Look at the generation F4 mobing and attacking the pellets and the mellowing generation F5 act like cherry shrimp. They are about the same age. Whether they stayed a good algae cleaner shrimp remain to be seen.
