Congrats on your shrimplets Squiggle!

I have 2 berried yellows right now and one looks like the photo above with the eggs moving down. Thought that what it must've been :D

Wow! So many pretty yellows! I hope mine will breed soon! It looks so much better, when there is HEAPS of them together.

Just a quick update on my yellows, I have so many shrimplets, I gave up counting at 50. The pic is of the front corner of the tank, there's at least 25 in the pic. :victorious:

Nah, probably just lower the water level & drive slowly, really nervous about moving the shrimp :dejection:

WOW! Look at them all. That's really exiting. :applause:

I'm so jalous, I want little shrimplets too!

How many babies does one shrimp normally have?

I know every time I close the gap a little he zooms ahead again it was a steady 60 difference for a while but now it's way over 100 girl power is not working for me. AND who said females talk too much Squiggle wins by a country mile LOL

      Thanks for your input.. the tank is cement and is under our house, its what I use to top up my outdoor pond when it loses evaporation and the shrimp living out there are breeding.  I will certainly look into test kits but to begin with I am just going to cycle the tank with plants.  Thanks again!

      It is best to test the parameters of the 'source' water and go from there. Many people use dechlorinated tap water successfully with cherry shrimp (me included), but rainwater or RO water you will need to mineralise the water. I guess it is a bit too early at this stage as you don't have the tank yet, but you may want to ge the test kits so you are ready to go anyway - TDS meter/pen, GH, KH, PH and of course ammonia/nitrite/nitrate for cyclng the tank. I guess you can make life easier when you have the tests by testing the different 'sources' so you can get any minerals etc ready as well, and decide which source is going to best suit cherry shrimps? Rainwater is likely near to RO water so will likely need minerals added, and what is the storage tank/guttering made of, as some metals are toxic to shrimp, especially copper? Sorry, got a bit off original topic. All the equipment you originally listed looks good and well thought out from what I saw but as I am in UK it isn't the same 'stuff' here so hopefully someone from Australia will help with that aspect. Simon

      I have often got odd groups of fungus growing when setting up new tanks, though not seen it on any shrimp, usually wood or ornaments etc and that clears itself in time once the tank is properly cycled and settled down. If he seems happy and active just keep a close eye on him and see how it progresses (hopefully disappears). Maybe the tank wasn't quite ready for him? I'm not quite sure how quickly/easy it is to cycle/establish when there are no plants, it may take longer as they are usually a part (speed up) of the process I would think, and if you have just got an ammonia reading this week? Keep testing Ammonia/nitrite and nitrate regulary at this point? If the ammonia gets too high it is normal to do a large water change, but that may trigger a molt so only do that if absolutely necessary. Don't overfeed the fish either (common mistake) as that may cause extra ammonia? What water are you using, RO or Tap? Simon

      So we have a rainwater tank under our house and I have a pond in the yard - was kind of planning on using rain water or water that has been cycling through my backyard pond, native pacific blue eye fish and native red nosed shrimp out there doing their own thing.   If I am stuck and in a drought then I might have to resort to filtered tap water...  does this sound like a plan?
    • sdlTBfanUK
      You have obviously done your research and I look forward to seeing how it progresses/goes. It all sounds very exciting and well planned out! I looked up the lighting and saw this video, don't know if you have already seen it but it seems quite informative (A80 model)! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZNKR2-kWbA With the filter you just need to be sure that the intake is shrimp safe so they don't get sucked into the filter? Do you know what water you will be using, Tap or RO and if tap water what the parameters of your tap water are. Usually you can use tapwater for cherry shrimp unless it has extreme parameters?  I am probably getting a bit ahead at this stage though? Simon
