I am new and trying to find members in Hawaii for advice and possibly purchasing shrimp. I have a planted tank that is cycled with rcs and crs. I am trying to get them to breed and was wondering if anyone has any tips or advice?
Not in Hawaii but if there's more info the members here may be able to help.
What are your parameters?
What is your source water? (parameters?)
Where did the shrimp come from? (if breeder/hobbyist, what are their parameters?)
CRS tend to be pickier shrimp and may require more specific parameters than RCS do in order to successfully breed. It's hit or miss how well they'll do in a tank together if you gear the tank towards one species or the other... unless you have them in separate tanks geared towards different parameters?
The activity for Hawaii members on this site is pretty much non existent now. There are a few facebook groups I ended up joining that have much more frequent interaction with other locals. If you have a facebook account, I can point you in their direction.
