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.

      Coming from a pet bird keeping hobby, I can easily back up what jayc said about imports.... not only can you not import animals, you can't export them either. The *ONLY* exception may come between New Zealand and Australia. Some animals can be moved between those two countries. Otherwise though, import and exportation for both countries is banned. I live in the USA.

      Thanks, Simon.  I am a shrimpnewb after all.  My tank has pretty much zero evaporation - it's weird, but it seems to have something to do with not running a heater and the water temperature being the same as the room.  I'm just planning to switch over to the shrimp focused mineralizer with water changes over time.  I'll update the TDS differences I assume will be there.

      This has got rather long and involved, interesting though! Just wanted to remind you that topping up tanks from evaporation will still need pure RO water (not mineralised) though so you will need to keep some Pure RO water aside for that. Simon

      Oh, yes.  Live and learn.  This is, as my wife keeps telling me, a science project.

      thanks for detailed information, it's a shame you can't get any of the new variations, btw my pinto has berries, first time for me as a beginning.
