I am very fascinated with the sulawesi harlequin shrimp after recently getting some cardinals. I am just feeling around and thinking about setting up a sulawesi harlequin shrimp tank. I am looking for anyone that currently has these and breeds them in your tank. Just looking for a fellow hobbyist to ask some questions and see how much these guys run.

Thanks for the replies!

I don't know of anyone in the US that currently has these breeding well. Extremely hard shrimp to keep, and when you find them- most are imported from the wild.

Do we need someone like you to breed them successfully? Absolutely!

Will you have a hard time finding them? Yes, since importers and hobbyists have a very hard time keeping them alive.

I don't think anyone has successfully breed them in captivity. A very few individuals were able to have some berried but the babies rarely survived. Maybe you should be looking for wild imports instead.
