Most ideal temperature for breeding Bee Shrimps

Recommended Posts

revolutionhope

hey all,

i'm just hoping to get some quick feedback/advice on what is the ideal temperature to keep bee shrimp aquariums to facilitate optimum health and frequency of bonking and baby survival :-)

cheers :-)

love n peace

will

I would say between 22 to 24 degrees.

thanks D my new crs so fst have been kept at 24 or 24.5 during the dsytime (if I can trust the average temp of my crumby thermometers)

How about daily fluctuation of temps falling and rising a couple degrees?

I think 2 or maybe 3 degrees fluctuations should be ok.

You need to check with the person you bought the crs from because they would be used to wp temp that he kept them in.

thanks again D will do :-) i dunno what they usually kept them at but they did say they had handled 28C before with no dramas.. i'm definitely going to avoid confirming that fact if i can though ;-)

Good idea Will lol.

Just keep things as constant as possible.

      Hey everyone,
      I was recently (meaning today) given the opportunity to set up a breeding tank for some native inverts (or some harder to breed fish I guess, but I want to go for shrimp) in a fishroom I help out in. I've been trying to decide what native shrimp I want to try breeding, but then I remembered that it's not as simple as exotics. Can I get some input from the 'experts' (@Grubs, @NoGi, @Baccus, @fishmosy, @jayc of course, I know most of you aren't very active anymore, but I would appreciate your help if you see this message) on what native invert you guys think is easiest to breed (for a semi-noob who hasn't kept natives before). I can set it up as brackish I think, we have an archer fish tank there and are setting up a saltwater as well so should have access to those tools and materials.  
      Cheers!

      Hi ! 
      I live in Seattle where the water is incredibly soft and I have a tap water pH of 6.7, GH of 0-1 and KH 2. My existing tank with plants already has buffered substrate. Would I have better chance of keeping CRS than RCS with my current water parameters ? Or would RCS do okay?    I do have an RO system already, and I could  remineralize my water with salty shrimp KH/GH+. Which would allow my GH and KH parameter to be okay for neocaridinas, but I already have a tank with active substrate. I’m 100% I don’t have space to set up another tank with inert substrate.    Would do you recommend ? What are pH you have successfully kept neocaridinas and have them thriving ?    Thanks ! I appreciate all the help as I am new to the hobby.

      Hey guyz, im cycling a 30l tank to get some rcs in it. The tank is almost cycled and im thinking of getting them next week. 
      I have tested the water and the kH is at 9 and ph is 7 (i have yet to buy a gh test as i bought the jbl pack and didnt realise it does not include gh). I have read about parameter for neo carodina and they say that the hardier the water the better. But i have also read that the water can be too hard which will make it hard for them to molt.
      What would you recommend for the parameters ? And how much should i start as a basic colony?

      That looks great and I'm sure shrimps will be very happy exploring and grazing in there. I look forward to hearing how it goes this time. I don't think anyone over here is sending shrimps (or fish) at the moment so I am not planning to get anything here soon, the fish are doing well in that tank, and there is 1 red steel shrimp survivor which shows itself occassionally?

      now the upload seems to be working with a 2Mb file ... but initially 6Mb seemed to big (popup with a "-200" error message, whatever that means 😐)

      Good to see you back and hopefully this time all will go well! Tiger shrimp would probably be best as a TESTER as they are less fragile and more adaptable to different parameters than Taiwan bee, so I would get a small group of those and see how that goes at this stage, you can change (or mix?) to the Taiwan bee if all works for a few months? With the correct parameters the PH should stay stable unless there is something like rocks that alter the PH. Using RO water plus the shrimp minerals will provide all the parameters at a set balance. I'm not aware of any changes since you posted the pctures back in April so can only assume it may be file size related, can you do one at 1mb or below? Simon

      Hello, I have totally redone my tank: removed substrate & woods. Cleaned the inside of the tank. I just kept most of the plants, cleaned them in tap water, cut out the roots. I put in a new substrate: JBL Manado Dark (neutral substrate) I added spider wood after cleaning them off Almost a month now has passed and parameters are pretty much stable. I still use osmosis water (ph = 6 to 6.5). I had a question though: - If I set the correct ppm parameters, normally Ph should stay stable? - I was thinking of introducing Tiger shrimps (that should be fine) but what about caridinas? I guess that would work as well?  PS: seems that I can't upload a file of 6Mb? Even 2Mb
