I've caught the shrimp bug :icon_lol:. So now I'm trying to breed whatever shrimps I can get my hands on. Here's a pic of the tank they're all living in.



I got started with some ghost shrimps from the LPS and then moved on to some RCS from Yoink. As you can see, I've successfully bred those. But now, I want to get the CRS to breed. Unfortunately, I have only one single CRS and 3 bees (hopefully they aren't all of the same gender).

My lonely CRS. Gender anyone??


I also have 3 green shrimps, two of which are berried so hopefully I'll have some shrimplets soon :proud: (no picture)

I also have two pearls shrimps in there, does anyone know how to sex these guys?


Summary: The "let's overpopulate the tank" project.
RCS ------------ breeding
Green Shrimp --- breeding
CRS ------------ looking for a soulmate
Pearl Shrimp ---- lonely strangers (ET, look at those eyes :eek5: )

Wow! That tank looks like shrimp heaven! Haha.

Your CRS is a male. Post some pics of the bees if you can. You may have some females there.

Good luck with your breeding! :)

NOOO!!! not all males again... I had 3 male CRS before, but two of them went cliff diving... I need to head back to the LFS and look for some more bees.. how can you tell if they're female? I've looked at those diagrams, but I still can't tell the difference. thanks
