Very nice Dean, I think your on to a winner there. A few more generations and I'm sure it will be even better. :)

Very nice Dean, would it be possible to cross one with a orange eye tiger? they would look mad with orange eyes.

Id love to get a couple off you and try create a pure green shrimp:)

cheers guys,

there are a few that are a lot darker and more solid green but they would not come to front of the tank for pics...

you can not cross cherry with tiger mate :( but that would look very cool indeed..

cheers mate, i know you like green mate and i will put your name on a few when the numbers increase a little, then no need to be green with envy :)

i am very happy with the eggs being the same green color as the shrimp because this means they now breed true and i have done something right

in the mad scientist lab... lol

      Ironically, the babies don't seem to hang out on the back glass much. Its mostly the adults. The very new babies seem to LOVE the mini bolbitis. That's where I see most of them until they're big enough and start exploring the rest of the tank. I don't really care about it being ugly haha. I have the 30C to satisfy my need for a "nice" aquascape. Cheers jayc. I'll definitely keep you in mind when I decide to reduce shrimp numbers! I'll just wait a bit to see what colours and patterns I end up with. Just noticed you're in Sydney. I wonder if there are many other NSW CRS keepers on this forum?

      It was a ‘black diamond quartz gravel’ from someone on gumtree, that turned grey... eww. I have about 4cm of it in the bottom of my 110 L. Forgot to mention, I’m fine to switch to sand or soil if u think that would be better. (Maybe from my bn’s point of view). I’ll check those two out. Thanks jayc!

      I have figured out how to use the conversion chart. It gives the mg level once you put your Ca and gh levels in. I was just curious on what a good mg level would be if I'm trying to achieve a 4 : 1 ca to mg level.  Also would like to know if I can use micromix trace elements. It only give dose for planted tanks. Dose is .5 ml to 10 gallons 3 times a week then 50% water change. I only make about a 25% change weekly. It shows a .1% copper content is it safe and if so how often would you recommend adding it to the aquarium.  Thanks for any help. Dave B.

      What sort of gravel do you have now?   What about 'Pisces Black diamond gravel'? I hear they are good.  Also 'AquaLava by Oliver Knott' should be inert since it's scoria rocks.

      Thanks 😉 Yup, they were caught in a brackish spot, but they do afford fresh water with no problems.
