Jst been through ths old thread and it was very interesting and a lot of great photos. I like the simplicity of the tank now, it must make seeing the shrimp a lot easier?

Would love to read an update of where you are now with it all, and what shrimps you have now?

It’s easier to see the shrimp I don’t have anymore LOL.

Suffered massive losses and left this to its own devices.

There has been a handful of shrimp make it though and just now have 4 or 5 berried females on the go.

 

BB, CBS, Tibee and Misch all running amok!

I feel your pain as I have had a lot of loses also over the not too distant past and mainly got fish for now!

I would say that's a red bolt (female)! I hope that is good news?

Interested to see what you get from that big mama.

Are you expecting Red bolts ? Or is that tank a mix, and you might get a hybrids.

I started with TB, CRS, CBS, BB and some misch in divided racks and then they got mixed when the shrimplets made it through the dividers. No plans at all at the time when that happened. Last I saw coming through were some nice BB and now this from the offspring.

      Thanks Simon I don’t think I will have any issues giving them away I just thought I would offer them here first. I’m a member of quite a few Facebook pages - there is a SA one as well- I can offer them on those pages too . Biggest problem is the people who come and get them and then sell off again. I really want to be able to stress they are culls from culls . If I can’t find homes for them I might just buy another bath and put them outside LOL  I’m quite surprised my Tangerine hybrids breed outside too. We get very cold winters and extremely hot summers here. I guess the large surface area allows the water to cool down.

      Those are lovelly pretty shrimp, you are very lucky to be able to keep some outside! It was interesting that you do the same regime of RO water + gh+ outside in the pond. You can try posting in the 'for sale' section of this site, https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/forum/148-selling-forum-livestock/ and/or try gumtree (below link) may be worth a try, https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-pet-products/cherry+shrimp/k0c18438?view=gallery I haven't used it myself, but they don't do post so is only for pick up I believe? I think it is free as well so worth a try???  Simon

      You are of course right that the tank should bed started afresh and if none of this batch survive I won't try any more until I can do a fresh start! I do have the substrate ready to do this but now isn't the time to do it, though I wonder whether it ever will be......... I am pleased to hear you are getting babies, even if they are lower grade, you are heading in the right direction. Blue bolts are  probably my favourites of the taiwan bees. Simon

      What a lovely bunch. And good on ya for having a generous heart.

      Hello again,  Just stopped by to wish you good luck, but if not, may as well break down the tank and start over completely. I hope someday I can have a mixed tank as nice as yours.  So far, most of my shrimp babies have been low grade blue bolts.
