it seems that most of my female shrimp are berried, and I have 100's of babies. but sometimes I see a baby thats floating and looks 3/4's dead. just wondering how many make it out of 20 or 30 babies
lol No cherries are breeding like nuts, and I see some crystal babies, just not sure how many ever at once as they hide in the dw, moss, etc. Would it be advisable to have a baby tank and take out babies when you see them, then you know, i added 18 babies to this tank, 4 adults, something wrong, I added 18 babies, 14 adults, something right. I guess that involves making sure both tanks are exact same conditions though too or you'd never know.Anything over 50%. Some die because they are weak. But I have had clutches with 90% too, that takes more involved work though
That's for crs though, if you have a 50 percent survival rate on cherries, something is dreadfully wrong
It never gets as hot as 71 inside my house. I've never seen it over 69 (and that's on the rare hot day when it's over 90 outside). So the heater is pretty much in action all the time keeping the temp steady.Maybe, but temperature swings if your room temp goes up and down.
what do you keep in the breeder box? just moss? wouldnt it be better to have them in the tank? I mean isnt there more "stuff" in the regular tank to eat?i have an internal breeder box, and im expecting my first batch of CRS babies this weekend to hatch. the berried female is in the breeder box and will hatch her eggs in there, then i will remove her and have just the babies in there, i will be able to keep an eye on all of the babies and keep the water params exactly the same as in the tank.
