More and more people are keeping them. They are becoming a lot more affordable too. There are even rumors of people breeding them in tap water and cherry like parameters. So maybe in another few months they will go from the 100 ea to 50 ea.

I need another tank!

Don't worry @jayc I'm in the same boat :crying: 

@Disciple They are differently getting cheaper and more readily available. Apart from cost, its the temp require or around 28 that holding me back. But if like you say, if their breeding in tap water (don't know why you would risk it) that would be a good thing

Temperatures in Australia makes it easier and cheaper to keep a tank warm, than it is to chill it. A heater is so much easier and cheaper to buy than a chiller.

 

Let me know when anyone has a pair for sale @ $50 ea.

I have an empty tank waiting to be filled.

You are probably starting to see more as it's getting into Summer and breeders are prepared to ship them rather than ship in winter and risk DOA. More should equate to cheaper one would think.

Well these guys are 6+ generation tank bred here in aus.

I have found they guys pretty easy to keep as long as wp are all good like any shrimp.

My water parameters for these guys are-

ph 8.2

tds 200

temp 28.5

They live in a 45cm cube,with 3cm coral sand base,2cm crushed scorpion on top and some lava rock features,running a 1000ltr canister filter,double sponge and heater/chiller..algae growth for them to graze is most important.

      Hi, I'm cycling a tank ATM and I'm using Dr Tim's ammonia, stability and I do have prime. But I was wondering if prime would stall the cycle since the bacteria need ammonia to feed and prime turns it into a.non toxic form?  My ammonia's been pretty high for the past week and I've been trying to do a partial water change to keep the levels down, not going down, no nitrites. But I did just start cycling it last week.

      It wasn't intentional, I was just putting the new shrimps into the tank, the dead shrimp just fell into the tank. I just purchased another 10 crabs today to make it a total of 22, but the shop put a few more in the bag for me, I will be keeping about 10 crabs, the others are for two of my friends, there tanks isn't setup yet, as these crabs are hard to obtain in Hong Kong, the last time I saw them available was over 5 years ago.

      I would imagine that the crabs will eat dead shrimps, even shrimps eat dead other shrimps, as they are both scavengers. Not sure that they would attack a live shrimp but it is probably best t keep a close eye on what happens before getting any more of either shrimps or crabs for that tank! Simon

      I think the live shrimp will be fine.  The micro-crabs are delicate creatures taking advantage of a rotting corpse. I'm sure the crabs will enjoy the protein.  Ordinarily I avoid feeding dead livestock to other livestock to prevent transmission of disease or unknown parasites although I will say as a shrimpkeeper the temptation is strong. 😄

      Yesterday I put a 3 new shrimps in the tank, and one dead shrimp that was DOA in the bag, nothing happened to the 3 shrimps, but the dead shrimp was swarmed by 3 crabs as food, would you presumed the live shrimps might get attacked soon or later.
