Purple Cherry Shrimp .....

Recommended Posts

Selective breeding the purple will definitely take importance' date=' but will need to find a suitable partner, to kick start the program....well, that's where the fun/excitement begin's I guess. Have a friend coming over tomorrow, and we'll strip down 2-3 tanks to look for a suitable mate ![/quote']

Will be watching with bated breath man KUDOS :thumbup: encouragement +++

Cherries may not inspire me...but' date=' I'm a avid collector. BUT like the SW/GB rilli's, once I get a small colony going, I definitely would assist and encourage others to join with the breeding program, so that it becomes available to us all...[/quote']

Im with rosiedosie.... keep breeding :thumbup:

Sorry Chris, I'll never work on a Freo line....HUGE WCE fan, hate the dockers....as soon as the purple shrimp shows signs of white...I'm gonna nuke it. LOL

Great looking shrimp @BlueBolts congrats! Understand the Freo thing I'm trying to bred new colour into my CRS to CBlueS in support of the Kangaroos, LOL.

      Not going to lie, this is giving me a headache. Just want a nice planted tank with fish and shrimp. 🤨 At the moment it looks like it have to either pick 1 or the other. Would this be a solution. Use Seachems Equilibrium and KH products to bring my GH and KH up to 4, then use that Shrimp King Mineral Fluid Double, to bring the GH up to 6. That would make sure that there are at least some minerals for the shrimp.

      Hi there buddies wanted to show you pics of pipefishes I caught in the wild, Microphis brachyurus and Microphis cruentus. Unfortunately, I now exceed the limit quota of attachments on my profile. Will try to fix that issue ...

      My vote is for Endlers. Mine are the most fascinating (from a fish lovers point of view here) and cute fish in my tank, but I reckon they would be perfect for you, as mine are constantly picking on stuff! They’re the only fish who eat my dreaded snail eggs (on the glass and other surfaces) which I love! Plus you don’t need heaps. Males are small if you just want them for this. And you will be able to get them anywhere.   I have a school of 20 embers in my tank, but I rarely see them hunting in any manner, much less on surfaces.

      In case it helps I have looked up the figures of the 2 tanks with cherry shrimp in them and they are as follows, Main tank     PH7,, GH5, KH2, TDS 225 (mixed water) Betta tank  PH7.5, GH6, KH3, TDS 222 (tap water + mineraliser) They are fairly similar to each other but neither is really in the 'IDEAL' recommendation range of CHERRY shrimp ,so it confirms that cherry shrimp are more adaptable and can thrive even outside those 'IDEAL' parameters? I suppose neither are that far out but it just shows there is a bit less necessity to get everything 100%, though if you aim for perfect you will probably get better results all round? Simon

      Oh, if you are planning on keeping Cherry shrimp aim for 6-8GH as Simon said above.
