It's my first time guys!  I got these as my first shrimp, they were berried within 2 days and I had to squeal this morning when I woke up to babies!  So far I count 13.  I had 2 berried females so I know there's more...  They are orange cherries 😄

Congrats Sheldon! Any idea what species those cherries are? I have a few orange shrimp available in my area but I'm pretty sure they aren't Neos cos they're labelled Orange shrimp and the fry need brackish water to survive 😕

They are orange cherry shrimp.  They have doubled in size and I’ve counted 14!

So I moved all oranges over to their own tank and there were actually 22, plus 10 from another orange.  Loooot of shrimps coming my way!

Here they are now, 3 weeks old!  They are growing fast.  Some of them appear to be just orange like their parents, and a few, maybe 5 of them, appear a much darker orange.  I am wondering if they may actually end up being red?  I don't know how long it takes to be able to tell that.

 

Trying to post pics and having issues...

Yay it worked!  I took these pics with a magnifying glass and my phone camera.  Not bad, eh?

So, I found an adolescent red cherry (about half grown) with 7 berries with eye spots on her undercarriage.  She was dead, unfortunately.  The body had already started to pink so she had probably been dead most of the day.  I took the berries off and put them in panty hose over a bubbler.  What are the chances they will survive since they are close enough to have eyes?  Do you think it is too late?

It's worth trying! I've had eggs turn white and/or get fuzzy and still hatch... so....

You have a very good chance and most of them will hatch.

Keep us updated.

This evening I gave them a look-see.  Half of them are now fuzzy.  They are all still in egg form so I hope they hatch tomorrow or I'm worried the growth will kill them.

Even if fuzzy, don't give up hope just yet! Might need to wait up to a week to see!

      Mine is a DIY Chiller, as you know a peltier has a hot side and cold side, for the cold side to stay cold, the hot side must be kept cold and with a heatsink and fan to cool it down. My DIY chiller has two sides and two water block. blue aluminum block with tube leading to the outlet of the canister filter and back to the tank to chill the tank water. copper block is to cool the hot side of the peltier, with copper block to the radiator/fan and a water pump looping. The problem is the tube from the water pump came off, apparently the plastic from the pump started to melt and the tube came off and the looping side had no water, so the copper water block stayed hot all the time with heat transferred to the cold side of the peltier also heating the water. since the copper takes time to cool down, most of the heat and the room hot temp had already heat the tank water to about 45 C.

      Try testing it again and see what you get or to confirm that the previous were right, especially the higher Ph reading is all I can recommend! If there is some explanation for the difference hopefully someone will reply and let you know, but I expect there won't actually be a difference if you do it again? Simon

      No that's not normal. But I don't know which tube in your loop had come off. Can you show us?   Yes that would have helped a bit, and at least give KMS more time to have found the issue by turning off the chiller. As I understand, kms has a peltier style chiller, and a tube of the pump had come off, which meant that hot water from the hot side of the peltier flowed back into the tank. So if the chiller was on the same temp controller, it would have turned off the chiller at around 26degC. The tank might have got warmer in his room, but it would have been at a much slower rate, and certainly would not have reached 45degC.

      I'm using the API master test kit with the dropper bottles. I was just very confused at how much more akaline the water was coming out of the filter compared to the water out in the open. I can't imagine how this fluctuating change in pH is going to be beneficial for my crs.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      What type of test are you doing strip or drip? I use drip tests and always ignore the first attempt as no matter how well I clean and keep the test set it is often way out of line. Las time first test was Ph8, second test Ph6. Sometimes first attempt looks ok so I have no idea what is going on????? If you just tried once it may be worth testing again? Simon
