Cherries from Ineke

Recommended Posts

I finally got some photos of my new cherries, of course the darkest ones took off as soon as I got the camera out and then returned after I had uploaded these. It's been great having shrimp again, sorry for the photo quality.

I have dark substrate and they stand out much more they seem to blend in with your gravel. Hope you get some dark babies from them. The ones I couldn't catch are colouring up quite nicely one little male is really nice so you should get some nice ones when they breed:encouragement:

Yes, I am thinking I should have tried a different substrate, it performs very well though and stops a cycle from occurring so I can stock from day one though. When they have some darker offspring they should stand out well. Three females are saddled so babies soon.

This is one of my old ones I bred. Thanks very much for them, I am very excited to have them again.

glad you are happy with them it's nice to have shrimp to look at. All the females these came from were very dark and very good breeders won't be long and you will be over run. If a substrate works stick with it inert gravels are good :encouragement:

Thanks :) I am hoping they berry soon. The substrate is top soil topped with zeolite, which has a very high CEC and absorbs ammonia. Everything seems to do well with it. There's some coral sand mixed in as well to buffer the PH.

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.

      Very wise as once they start breeding your population may sky rocket anyway, as they have with the CBS! I'm sure you should get some really nice surprises/colours when they start cross breeding too! Simon

      I will stick with the present shrimps, give it another month or so before I add some more shrimps.

      More fantastic pictures love the blue shadow panda and the 2 red pinto galaxy. Great to hear all is going so well! If you have a lot of CBS then they will breed when they are old enough so losing the 'mother' isn't too bad at this stage and they only love max 2 years anyway. Glad you still have 2 blue bolts as well - those will probably be my next purchase when they are in stock? The putting spinach in my tank has brought a few of my shrimps out but bizarrely they aren't touching the actual spinach? Seen 2 black and 3 red (of the 8 total I bought) so far today? Simon

      update my new tank is becoming stable, the shrinps are growing, I have seen many of the shrimps shread it's shell.   My old tank is infested with black CRS, but the mother had just died yesterday, I still have two blue bolts and a few CRS.
