    Muscular necrosis on C. typus?

    I'll try quarantining them starting tomorrow morning and try to keep an eye out if there is any development on their condition.

    Muscular necrosis on C. typus?

    I wouldn't want to commit using those photos, and I don't know what a healthy shrimp of that type looks like to be honest. I would expect some discolouration from shipping etc, but that same thing could also have made them sick as you say. When I looked up pictures on google all the shrimps were a cloudy light brown so they are naturally cloudy and maybe just lost some colour in transit, see if anything changes in a day or two? Can you remove them and keep them separate for maybe a week, even in a bucket etc, using tank water as they have acclimated to that already! Of course catching and moving them again will stress them even more............ Simon

    Welcome roosterman

    Welcome to SKF @roosterman
  7. Hello everyone, i got 5 C. typus at 7:00 p.m. (UTC+8). They were stuck for a day or so from shipping before i received them and i got worried some of them would've died. In some kind of miracle 4 of them survived. When i got them acclimated to my tanks i took some time to observe them and i noticed some of them had this pale white look on their bodies and immediately got worried because i know i could endanger my other shrimp. Sorry for low res pics i'll try to get more shots tomorrow Here are two pictures of one of them:

    Shrimp ID?

    The yellow cherry aren't kept with reds, they just bred from that colony and now are by themselves but yeah ill probably seperate the shrimps in questions and find out thanks heaps!

    Shrimp ID?

    That is what I would so, as you say they are still attractive and time may help work it out, the colouris quite cherry but the markings are more caridina. If your caridina came from a mixed tank (as it sounds like it did) then it could be some kind of caridina hybrid (the stripes down the back are quite Pinto), assuming you got a female if you only got the 1? Of coarse if you only got one female Caridina you may want to leave the oddbods in with it to breed and you could get a fabulous mix of patterns and colours from them dependant on the genes they carry??? It is difficult to tell the sex of the caridina in the picture as it has its back arched upwards. On the other hand, if you have only had the caridina a few months is the oddbod too big to have been born since the adult was added. And if the yellow cherrys were mixed with red cherry they would revert back to wild quickly! Shrimps carry the eggs and they hatch from the mothers underside. If you aren't sure it may be best to put them in a seperate tank (for now) as you say you may do. Fingers crossed they are caridina! I hope you will keep us informed. Simon

    Shrimp ID?

    The yellows are definitely cherry shrimp, i got them around 6 or 7 months ago when they bred from my brothers red cherry tank and started with a group of 8 and added a few more. The caradina shrimp i added a few months ago and the guy said they were in a tank of just blue bolts and pintos so they are as pure as I'm aware. The yellows are definitely cherry shrimp, although i bought two quite large yellow shrimp from my local fish store. They're the biggest I've ever seen but they assured me they are actually yellow cherry shrimp (one of them was actually berried when i purchased it so it layed eggs in my tank). I don't think this shrimp gave birth to the shrimps in question however, as there were more smaller shrimp that look like the one in the picture, and the large yellow shrimp i bought has only given birth once. Also, it is around mainly yellow babies and the shrimp in question is slightly smaller than a fully grown yellow cherry male. My brothers dismantling a very small tank, maybe 8 -14 litres and i was thinking of putting them in there and breeding them because they look heaps nice and even better than the photos, but ill have to see. Thanks heaps for the help!

    This is an interesting dilema............ Are you sure the yellows are cherry shrimp and not 'yellow king kong'? Yellow king kong are caridina and usually smaller! Going by the colour of the shrimp it looks yellow, but the marks down the back look more caridina than cherry! There is a yellow stripe variety of cherry but the stripe doesn't have that sort of shade/contrast. The other yellow shrimp in the picture are quite small, smaller than the oddbod, so can timeline help us? When did you get the yellows and when did you get the caridina (beautiful by the way) which is much bigger? The markings on oddbod are white (some spots on the tail as well I THINK). I wouldn't do anything with them at the moment until we (hopefully) get to the bottom of this! Simon

    Well... I saw some Caridinas in that second pic. Dark yellow with darker dots and lines sounds an awful lot like some type of tangerine tiger. Unless your caridinas are from a pure line. Then I assume Simon is right.

    Divided tank

    I hope you manage to find something, though it may still need some adapting/tweaking to be shrimplet safe? I had a quick look on amazon and saw the type of thing you want but it would be better to see it up close so you can work out what you may need to adapt etc! Simon

    I can only assume they are reverting back to the wild type from which they originated, it is quite usual with neocaridina! The best way to slow the process would be by removing the wild type before they are of breeding age, but it is something I KNOW getsout of hand if not kept on top of from the start?? You could just get a small and very simple aquarium for any unwanted ones if you still like them! Simon

    About three shrimps looking like this bred from my yellow Cherry colony. Anyone know what it is? It's a dark colour with yellow/gold stripes and specks, the shrimp in the middle. Thanks, Luke

    Need a male...lineage recs

    its been a while but ive seen some good LFS stock of BMs in the PDX area. Also, the aquaswap reddit has been successful in myself finding local breeders. Hopefully within a year ill have some strong lineages myself to sell.

    Divided tank

    Cornwall based. I think go to my local fish shops and try and find a triple betta tank or something similar. Thanks

    Divided tank

    Where are you based? As crabby says you will probably need to do some diy though you may find something you could use sold for Betta fish on ebay or amazon maybe? Anything that shares water may be more difficult to stop shrimps moving between sections any way they can find! Simon

    Divided tank

    If you want to be using a single set of equipment, you'll need to go DIY. I would say make some sort of frame that fits snugly inside the tank, and run really fine netting over the frame, for the dividers? Or possibly just a big sheet of filter sponge that you can cut up. The latter has less water flow though.

    Divided tank

    I am doing an experiment with my cherry shrimp on temperature dependant sex determination and I need a divided tank obviously the tank won’t need to be too big as I am just housing 1 male and 1 female in each section. ideally, I am looking for a rectangular tank divided into 3 sections so that I can breed 3 pairs at once. The sections will need to share water as I only want to use 1 set of equipment. But if they’re sharing water, I am concerned that after breeding, shrimplets will be able to move into each section through the holes which would ruin my experiment. Does anybody know where I can get a divided tank suitable for my experiment that isn’t too costly or anything I could use as an alternative? Thanks

    Dark Brown shades of Neos

    I assume that they are reverting to wild type, though I've not had them looking quite like that, but I don't have blues, just the red. If they weren't from an established single type tank it can even happen with all shrimps that are one colour as the parents could be mixed or carrying mixed genes! You are probably best to remove the ones you don't like but if you are already at this stage it will probably happen more often and in larger numbers as tie goes on? As it is a mixed tank anyway, just removing the ones that are turning won't stop the problem as the reds and blues will cross breed anyway? Simon

    Dark Brown shades of Neos

    There are wild type neos, some red cherry and some dream blues in this tank. I am starting to see some dark and glossy blackish brown shrimplets emerging in this tank. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
