That definitely looks berried to me also!

Those are eggs, I could be wrong, but before fungus can grow on a shrimp, it will probably be dead.

      I have been trailing this product for about 8 months now:
      Ingredients: Lactic acid bacteria, crustaceans calcium, reduced maltose, mulberry powder, yeast
       
      I cannot argue with the fact that it increases my berried ratio among females after feeding. I sceptically attributed it to the protein component only initially, but trialling one tank on protein- high Ebita Breed Hinomaro bentou and another tank on B18, I still find B18 has a more pronounced effect on fertility.
      Whether it is potentially the Lactic Acid Bacteria strain used, the highly absorbable form of calcium used, the digestability of the yeast protein or a combination of all above, it appears to work.
      Dosage: Once a week, small amount.
       
      Highlights:
      - very little is used, so it lasts a long time as it is very concentrated.
      - the shrimp are attracted to the food supplement when put in the tank.
      - it completely breaks apart into a fine particle mush so that all shrimp can have a bite of the small portion dosed
      - it indeed does increase berried rate
       
      Concerns:
      - not available for purchase in Australia yet. Available in Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong.
      - possible water contamination potential if too much is dosed in nano tank.

      So I was sticky beaking in my native tank and spied most if not all my girls are berried , so here's hoping that shortly not only will I have the notopala babies growing up nicely but also a few generations of various native shrimp.
      Blackmore I think

      Easy to identify Chameleon

      Also easy to ID Darwin Rednose

      and another

      And this really full girl that is either a DAS or a local creek shrimp that might in all honesty could be anything

      The pump flow jets into the corner of the tank and bounces the flow back out across the semi-circle of pebbles which provide "hang-on" spots for the shrimp. Not surprisingly this was set up to also give maximum viewing potential for me :D
      Feeding (infrequently) a mix of Sera micron powder, brine shrimp nauplii, and milk paramecium that I culture as fry food (I strain out the big ones on 50µm mesh).
      I also drop bits of mulberry leaf into the tank every now and then.
      I've found reproduction to be very seasonal.  In the 18 months I've had them this is only the second time I've had berried females - last time was last summer.

      Since the warmer weather the riffles are in gear and starting to breed.

      Great picture and love the shrimplets. Also pleased to hear it is all working so well! Do you now what the PH is of the new 20G tank? Simon

      That sounds great and pleased you have decided to go ahead. As you don't have any occupants in the tank at the moment it should be easy to get the tank parameters right by doing the planned water changes and add very little of the GH/KH+ until you have done the last large water change on Tuesday, that way it is easier to add the GH/KH+ to the level you want directly into the tank then - easier than finding it is over and having to get it down?  IF you were thinking of getting the shrimps from ProShrimp, they have quite a variety, bear in mind that there is postage cost only to a certain value (I think it is £35) so it may be better value to order a few more shrimps instead of paying the postage - if that makes sense??? If you are having them delivered Prohrimp or ebay you need to be home to sign/receive them obviously and IF using ebay MAKE SURE the seller is sending 'Express Delivery (Royal Mail Special Delivery (TM) 1:00 pm)'! Hopefully we will hear that everything has worked out well and all the hassle hasn't marred the experience.  Simon

      I am sorry for some reasons the picture did not go through the last time 🙂 Also, I am cycling 3 more tanks for a new journey with Taiwan Bee shrimps 🙂

      If there are no shrimps in the tank, you can do a 100% water change with water that is adjusted to your liking with Salty shrimp GH/KH+.
