Curious how much i should let them age if its even a concern before i sell some of my babies.

I mean the only reason you’ll want to let them age is so that people want to buy them! I’ve never had any interest in my endler fry until the males have started showing colour. So I generally wait a couple months to sell those guys. Heck, I have 100 apistogramma fry growing up in my 100L community tank. I’d love to sell them! But the oldest are only about 2 inches at most, so about 6 months old, and they only sell at around 9 months when they’ve put on some size.

I was figuring as much, i had a large spawn today of about 30 endlers, excited for them to grow!

Nice! I'd just like to recommend that you label them correctly for sale - if they're N or P class endlers then say so, but otherwise make sure that you're clear that they're hybrids. Helps everyone. Congrats though!

i bought them at a LFS as Yellow tuxedo Endlers, they were adamant they werent hybrids but i could be mistaken.

Yellow Tuxedo Endler’s Livebearer

Poecilia cf. wingei  are how they are listed from the site of the LFS

      Hey guys new to the wonderful world of shrimp keeping, my tank has been cycled for about 3 months now and start of December I got my first shrimpey's! I choose blue jelly's as they are beautiful 🙂 a month in and I have about 3 sets of babys swimming around!! They are all super clear right now getting slightly more blue each day, but there's an odd guy in the bunch..one of the biggest infact is completely see through orange in colour!! No clear no blue but orange..he's got such character and is often doing zoomies around my tank 🙂 but yeh couldn't seem to find any info out there so thought I could consult the community thank you for any opinions on this lovely little oddity
      Struggling to get pic uploaded because of size issues will try update with pics tomorrow

      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. 
      cheers :)

      Hey everyone,
      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.  
      Cheers!
