@Duck5003... Thanks! I had planned on getting stock from Soothing for a long time.
@jkan... I was nervous, since I've never had shrimp before. I'm so glad it all went so smoothly!
@Soothing Shrimp... Yeah, surprisingly, they went right to grazing in the tanks. I think they were just happy they weren't being tossed about in a box anymore. What kind of moss was in the bags, do you know?
See? I learned something new. So they molt if the water params change (to be expected, then, when changing tanks halfway across the country), they molt as they grow, and molting triggers breeding behavior if they're old enough and saddled, correct? Argh... my head is swimming in the shrimp tank.
Heh I learned something as well! Didn't know about diff water params causing molts myself
The shrimp look lovely mosspearl!!! Keep the pics coming!!! I want BV's and yellow neos so badly but only have one tank set up for shrimp atm, which is housing cherries... I'm not wanting to muddy up such pretty colors, so I shall live vicariously thru you for the time being.
You are most welcome, I<3<*))))><! I have long lived vicariously through others on this forum, it's only fair I do my part. In the meantime, I will try to improve my atrocious photography skills for your benefit.
In the meantime... the next generation of shrimpers hone their skills. My two youngest are already asking questions I have to look up answers for. They will quickly surpass me, I'm sure. My youngest son, especially, is utterly fascinated with them. He's the one in green.
