Hello all,

noticed this female cherry about week ago "berried" but just managed to get photo today.

We very excited to see shrimplets - but is it approx month for this to happen?

P.S

just like to mention really love this forum and all the info & comments - just as addictive as the shrimps.:encouragement:

There is nothing better than a berried mum except new shrimplets. It can take up to 30 days from being berried but it also depends on your water temperature. Some say it can be as quick as 14 days if the Temperature is closer to 26 degrees my cherries were always about the 28 day mark at 23-24 degrees. just enjoy and wait don't go changing the temperature she will have them when they are ready!!! congratulations:encouragement:

Awesome work beginner, well done! :victorious: What Ineke said is correct, only thing there are drawbacks to hatching them at higher temps, it's recommended to keep your tank at 23-24, as already mentioned :encouragement:

This is good news. This means you have plenty of time to prepare your quick dance when you see your shrimplets for the first time. Some choices are moonwalk, running man, human robot or if your lazy just punch the air.

Thanks all,

my current temp is 26 - so once she has them - then drop temp to & maintain in future at 23 - 24?

Do you have any videos of yourself to demonstrate the specifics of the individual dance moves?

Congrats beginner!

If it's just a matter of lowering the heater temp or removing the heater, lower the temp to 23-24. However, come summer don't panic if the temperatures get higher. There's no need to buy a chiller for cherry shrimp. Mine survived Townsville summer (29+) :)

      I finally setup my chiller, although it's ok, I find the temperature display a little messed up (not sure if its the controller or the chiller, I have a temperature gun on order to get a more accurate reading), when compared with my temperature controller, the figures are off, even when adjusting them, sometime it's 0.1c, 0.2c, 0.3c, 0.4c faster or slower, some times its the same, but either way, it's consider accurate, and reaches the same figures at the end with 25c kicks off and 26c kicks on. May be I should use the same sensor/probe then it could be more accurate, the temperature controller used a metal end sensor, whiles the Hailea used a plastic. it takes about 8 minutes from 26C to 25C. it takes about  49 minutes after the chiller reaches 25C to 26C. But the weather is a lot better than a few months ago.

      That is a clever idea separating into trays like that! Thanks for the picture! With the shrimps now in place producing waste and (per JayC) once the roots are settled in I am sure you will start to see the plants starting to grow better as time goes on? There is one big advantage of coarse to the plants growing slower and that is less maintenance/trimming/getting overgrown? Simon

      I think you can get blue panda from blue bolt x red wine panda

      Here is a picture of the tank from about 2 weeks ago, or 1 week after I added shrimp.  The tank took about 3+ months to cycle, mainly because I wasn't watching the pH, and every time I added ammonium chloride or fertilizer it would drop the pH and stall the cycle.  But during the cycling time when I added nutrients and lots of light, the s. repens and Ludwigia grew quickly.  But now the s. repens growth has stalled (no more ferts).  Same for the monte carlo. The peacock moss is growing very slowly, and it is also stringy and not highly branched, so there is something wrong with the growth parameters also. Regarding the light: it is programmable, so I can set the brightness to whatever, but since I don't have a light meter, I can't say absolutely how bright it is.  But currently it is set so that it is at least visually dim compared to other aquariums I have seen, and the light is on for approx 8 hrs a day. (It ramps up and down)  I will try what you suggested and make the light brighter but shorter duration. Anyway, I had read that the way to out-compete algae was to have the plants grow even faster, but so far they aren't growing much.
