Sorry, I'm confused....


I don't see any "breeding" occurring. and I honestly can't tell if the female has eggs or not.... and if she has eggs, if they are even fertile. I can only say that whatever is going on, it appears "off"...

I don't see breeding?

Hard to tell. She might be full of unfertilized eggs..egg bound. If she's part of a few you have,she could be preggie. I wish I could keep them..but my fish are too fast for food to get to filter feeders or even slow eaters like Rams and such.

No,I think it can be done. One Russian aquarist on youtube posted of breeding them and raising the young. She might have had to raise the young in marine water,I can't recall.

I didn't think bamboo shrimp could have successful broods in freshwater....
They can't, unfortunately. Larval stage (it's trickier than with Amano shrimp, even) requires a specific brackish salinity and they have to be moved at just the right time. Then they have to be moved back to freshwater at just the right time.
