Shrimp going crazy.

Recommended Posts

JonX

I have two snow whites. The larger one is 100% saddled female. The smaller one ive been leaning towards female but right now it is 'going crazy' .

Same scenario with my cbs.

One definate male is also going crazy. All my known females are just normal.

So my question is: Is it only the males who do the crazy sexy dance?

If so then I have found a male for my loney girl snow white. :)

I have never seen a female zooming around the tank whilst the males do t heir testosterone filled dance around the tank looking for her.

I think in my experience they tend to hide more so then zoom to preventing teh sexual harrassment of a heap of males

try putting them in a breeder box overnight and see if shes berried in the morning, i have done it in the past :)

From my observations, only the males in my tanks (5 atm) do the crazy dance. Swimming around like looking for a certain scent. So I would say yes she should not be lonely anymore.

Ive put them in the 1st division with the yellow cherries. They were with the cbs.

The sss cbs male is cruising around also might get a berried cbs.

Or the scent could come from the crs (middle divison).

Hopefully someone gets lucky. :)

I have an aquamanta box and a sudo box which i previously used as per my last post but i am actually going to get a couple of the internal ones to avoid the massive temp increases i get here.

I used to swear against the shrimp caves but when i did my selective breeding, i added the same substrate some moss and a shrimp cave and in 48 hours i had 4 berried females from 2 selected males. Once i get some breeders i will be doing the same thing again only because i have a mix in my tank and its my best bet to avoid cross breeding.

The males tends to go crazy and go dashing around the tank, enchanted by the freshly moulted female.....looks like you're going to be a daddy soon.

Very happy because I raised this shrimp from a juvenile.

Congratulations bro! I think it is the stormy weather that is creating a breeding frenzy! Some of my shrimp have berried up as well!

Thanks chi. I topped up with about 2 liters of rain water which might have helped.

Rain water in cabramatta has a tds of 12.

I don't think it is 12 all the time, depends on where the rain clouds flew in from and the pollutants in them. May be 12 one day and 500 next time.

If you can see eggs under her belly then they are fertilised. They don't get there unless having bred with a male and fertilized as I know it.

      Mine is a DIY Chiller, as you know a peltier has a hot side and cold side, for the cold side to stay cold, the hot side must be kept cold and with a heatsink and fan to cool it down. My DIY chiller has two sides and two water block. blue aluminum block with tube leading to the outlet of the canister filter and back to the tank to chill the tank water. copper block is to cool the hot side of the peltier, with copper block to the radiator/fan and a water pump looping. The problem is the tube from the water pump came off, apparently the plastic from the pump started to melt and the tube came off and the looping side had no water, so the copper water block stayed hot all the time with heat transferred to the cold side of the peltier also heating the water. since the copper takes time to cool down, most of the heat and the room hot temp had already heat the tank water to about 45 C.

      Try testing it again and see what you get or to confirm that the previous were right, especially the higher Ph reading is all I can recommend! If there is some explanation for the difference hopefully someone will reply and let you know, but I expect there won't actually be a difference if you do it again? Simon

      No that's not normal. But I don't know which tube in your loop had come off. Can you show us?   Yes that would have helped a bit, and at least give KMS more time to have found the issue by turning off the chiller. As I understand, kms has a peltier style chiller, and a tube of the pump had come off, which meant that hot water from the hot side of the peltier flowed back into the tank. So if the chiller was on the same temp controller, it would have turned off the chiller at around 26degC. The tank might have got warmer in his room, but it would have been at a much slower rate, and certainly would not have reached 45degC.

      I'm using the API master test kit with the dropper bottles. I was just very confused at how much more akaline the water was coming out of the filter compared to the water out in the open. I can't imagine how this fluctuating change in pH is going to be beneficial for my crs.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      What type of test are you doing strip or drip? I use drip tests and always ignore the first attempt as no matter how well I clean and keep the test set it is often way out of line. Las time first test was Ph8, second test Ph6. Sometimes first attempt looks ok so I have no idea what is going on????? If you just tried once it may be worth testing again? Simon
