My yellows had babies after all...well at least one!

I just found a teeny tiny baby shrimp in my tank.

I thought it was a bit of snail poo :D but it has eyes! ...and it moves.

It is so cute! *happy dance*

:applause::triumphant:

Thanks Ineke It's really really exiting....especially because I thought that she had just lost the eggs some time ago and there were no baby shrimp at all.

I saw the baby shrimp again just then....I think I will name him "Snail Poo" :)

I now have discovered that Snail Poo is not an only child, I saw 2 shrimplets....so Squiggle was right once again.

They are just so hard to spot even when they are not hiding.

And there is a new berried Mama Shrimp in there too! :encouragement:

I just discovered new yellow shrimplets, the second batch! :triumphant:

The older shrimplets from 3 weeks ago already look like giants compared to the brand new ones.

Wow! Shrimplets grow really fast! :encouragement:

I remember not so very long ago you sat staring at an empty shrimp tank wondering if you would ever get some and here you are now making your own:applause:

Awesome stuff Garny, they do breed like rabbits so you will get a population explosion, so definitely time for more tanks, lol :encouragement:

Yes all yellow, just not yours for some reason, hahaha :victorious: it really is a head scratcher why yours aren't prolific breeders, hopefully with the injection of new blood in the tank it will kick them off :encouragement:

      @jayc or anyone else, could you please go over how to dose this oregano oil in water, just to make sure I don’t nuke my tank. I only have my tiny HOB and dual sponge filter. Oil will be here tomorrow and I’m nervous about killing my tank. Filter media will be moved to a 1.5 gallon  tall container( beverage type container thAts tall and deep), with the sponge filter. I’ll leave the HOB without ceramic media etc for flow during treatment. I will be taking a gallon of  tank water out for the container my filter media and sponge will be running in for a few days, before dosing.    I places a blanched cucumber in tonight, they swarmed it for the first time, ever. Looking at the shells on some of them, it’s 100% bacterial( external as well as possibly internal). I don’t know why. I thought my water was in good shape..... I’m terrified of something going wrong. Hopefully I can get it all together, and this is successful.... also, than you all for the help. It’s greatly appreciated.

      Shrimp on the oregano leaves! I don’t know, however, if they can get anything off them. I blanched in boiling water for 30-45 seconds, but they weren’t that soft.....
    • Steensj2004
      Um, because I’m all over the place I thought it pertinent to mention I’ve slowly lowered my GH to 5-6 over the last week and a half, or so. Slowly, but these shell issues existed long before adjusting the water parameters. I suppose it’s possible this could have finished off the injured shrimp, however, the parameters are, from what I can gather, a little more superior at this time. The GH was lowered by monitoring my TDS drop closely. I dropped the TDS by around 2 points daily. At this point, I’m sitting at:   PH: 6.2 GH:5-6( during testing, the color teeters between 5-6 drops for a change) KH:0 TDS:140 Temp: 72f   So, now that I’ve completely sworn off of fertilizers, I haven’t seen any increase or decrease in TDS / GH without my own manipulation. Second and third generation of shrimplettes are doing well, and aren’t showing any signs of discoloration. Another mama likely soon to drop as her eggs have easily visible eyes.

      I apologize for being unclear. I had ordered one before asking more specific questions. So I simply located a different one and order that( the one you green lighted), while also canceling the less desirable one. Also, the one you told me to buy, was considerably cheaper, while retaining the same no additive ingredient list.   No signs that the oregano leaves were touched this AM, but, there were multiple shrimp surrounding them, while several were perched on them. I’m not sure how much they need to ingest to really help, but hopefully the sampled a little bit overnight. Now, my problem is locating a food that they will attack, to place into the tank. Would it be possible to mix some BacterAE/ Shrimp Fit powder into oregano oil water? They seem to feed on that when it’s added to the tank.... otherwise, I’ll use some rephasy, newt made, with oregano oil water added.... or something similar. 
    • Steensj2004
      In relation to the PH, what is too low? Because several people in other groups act shocked at my PH at 6.1-6.2. The substrate is ADA and has always buffered to that range. Even the Fluval Stratum I used in the smaller 5 gallon buffered similarly.
