Well I have a shrimp tank that all my shrimps were going nuts in.... But i found three female with eggs so i figured out what was going on. All so how ofter well they have baby's? As i keep ending up with tons of little ones in a tank that I'm trying to take down. No big females in it.. Just some younger midsize ones left...

One male can impregnate the all the females in one tank.

So, very often.

This is a "good" problem to have. Many people have difficulty trying to get their shrimps to breed at all.

I'm one who struggles to keep a healthy breeding population... *especially* if it's a Neo.... ah well. I haven't delved far into Caridina either.

 

It usually takes about 3-4 weeks for eggs to hatch. They can get berried up right after their eggs hatch and they molt.

      Nope, shrimp import is banned in Australia. Absolutely banned.

      As jayc has mention, do check if you are allowed to import them into your country, I think Australia is ok as long as you applied for the paper work to import them, but do check first. But this option are for those who are after good quality shrimp with a guaranteed of pure bloodline. You can contact them through this email, they accept Paypal with a addition 7.5% on top, their Paypal account email is different, but email them first for relevant detail as they may differ from mine.  YU CRS CENTER CORP. <contact@yu-crscenter.com>   For me they cost with shipping and Paypal fee, its still cheaper them in Hong Kong. I will have to delay this purchase, ADA and the CALs Black Earth Premium substrate are limited now, most places does not have stock, and no delivery date.

      See, and I thought you meant weak solutions were just as susceptible.  So I should pre-mix my 7 gallon tank when I get the RO water and it will last the 4 weeks or so that I use it to change water just fine.  That's what I was after.  Apparently the Salty Bee guys think the same.  Makes sense.

      I was talking about letting pure RO water sit around for too long unused.  Try not to do it.
      RO water that has been remineralised is different.

      Oops did I mix them around?   <edit> - I did mix the names around. Fix it now in my post above.
