      Guys, I will be the first to admit that I should have bought those Cardinals at the auction last night. My tank is not yet ready.
      If a guy on Gumtree raises them in tap water and @JPN07 has bred and adapted them for easier keeping here in Australia,  is there anything else that interested potential keepers should know apart from adding Sulawesi shrimp salt and off we go?
      Do you need special rocks or substrate, or specific types of blankets of algae? Do they eat normal shrimp food? They are classified as a very hard shrimp to keep and I would just like to find out why. Do they kick the bucket for the slightest change in water parameters like small water changes? I have looked at their habitat and taken a mental note that they like to hang out on the underside of hanging rocks, but can it really be that easy?
      I have seen photos of setups that look like they were staged for National Geographic, and then I have seen For Sale ads where the tanks look more like swamps with a phosphate problem there is so much algae in it, but it is filled to the brim with babies. What works?

      I came across this Japanese website that shows the biotope of Sulawesi shrimps.
      Thought you guys with Sulas would be interested. (Need Google translate to English).

      The shrimps don't all hatch at the same time so she may have had a couple of eggs you didn't see. Anyway, it does you a favour as you can check both tanks at the same time as to whether shrimplets do well and better in one over the other etc! Great to hear all is going well! Simon

      Hello everyone.  Thought I'd update y'all. I stetup the breeder tank and put my 3 pregnant chicks in there. One is done breeding and I've put her back in the main tank, I've counted 9 babies in there. Ironically I've seen 2 new babies in the main tank, not sure where they came from bc I thought I got all the pregnant ones out. Thanks for your help everyone

      Fantastic photos and great that the RO water unit and pen arrived so promptly! It is always exciting when you get a batch of shrimplets - something I am looking forward too! Simon
