hey everyone so i know this is a shrimp forum but im betting that most of the people on here have fish too
im a school student and ive decided to design a new breeder box that beats the flaws of other existing products for my major work
i was hoping you guys could just reply with what method or model of breeder box you use to save your fry, what kind of fish you use it with and any pros and cons of these methods
thanks in advance for any replies.
Hi, I am doing a project for my college course:
How does temperature affect the number of fry a cherry shrimp produces?
I have setup a small 18L nano tank and it’s currently cycling. When ready, I am planning on taking 1 male and 1 female cherry shrimp from my main shrimp tank and putting them in the new tank. and waiting until I see eggs. I will then remove the male and when the eggs have hatched, or when the babies are big enough to see, I will count them.
I will then repeat this with different temperatures.
it seems like it will all work in theory and I have 1 year to do this so time is not an issue. The only issue I see is that I’m unsure how Will I accurately count the fry?
This is vital for my project and if anybody has ideas I would greatly appreciate it.
I was recently (meaning today) given the opportunity to set up a breeding tank for some native inverts (or some harder to breed fish I guess, but I want to go for shrimp) in a fishroom I help out in. I've been trying to decide what native shrimp I want to try breeding, but then I remembered that it's not as simple as exotics. Can I get some input from the 'experts' (@Grubs, @NoGi, @Baccus, @fishmosy, @jayc of course, I know most of you aren't very active anymore, but I would appreciate your help if you see this message) on what native invert you guys think is easiest to breed (for a semi-noob who hasn't kept natives before). I can set it up as brackish I think, we have an archer fish tank there and are setting up a saltwater as well so should have access to those tools and materials.
PLZ HELP 🙂
I bought some pintos, and i did put them with my other bees (some panda, some king kong, some blue bolts).
However, i can't seem to find if pintos do breed true (in that case, should i separate them? or will those mix with the others
to make cool new paterns, colors, etc?)
I have a hard time figuring what bee breed true if any.
I've read that bee are a mutation of CRS/CBS, but do they produce similar offsprings or is it more random as an interaction of
Thanks in advance for the help!
