You'll find some breeders have all types of shrimps and would have to put up an audited list!

I only have mostly CRS, some CBS, Cherries, DAE, DRN and chameleon shrimps.

Not really, especially if you have/use

Shrimp soil

Saltyshrimp GH minerals

Mosses and ferns

Plenty of filtration!

But... Expect the odd death from time to time. Also, alot of people on here have shared the CRS water params for successful keeping and breeding :victorious:

Loach is right. I still have the odd death here and there while shrimps are getting berried consistently with more shrimplets surviving.

There are certain requirements for CRS and the likes to thrive. I'll add to his list that has worked for;

- Oxydator

- Top up only (with minimal WC)

- Lots of patience

But most importantly, don't fiddle with your tank!

Keeps the temperature down, Crystal shrimp are heat sensitive.

      Fantastic photos and great that the RO water unit and pen arrived so promptly! It is always exciting when you get a batch of shrimplets - something I am looking forward too! Simon

      Springs here, so maybe the shrimp are more active for breeding? Hope you are collecting the waste RO water for watering your plants.

      Bought an RO DI unit from FSA. Free postage and it arrived in 2 days. Very happy. The TDS pen arrived today so I got busy. For reference, I’m about 2 hours North of Sydney. Tap water: TDS 155-157. PH 7-7.2 RO water: TDS 0-1 (Remineralised to 150). PH 6.6 CRS tank water: TDS 198. PH 7-7.2 I siphoned a vey small amount of tank water and am in the process of drip feeding the RO water into the tank. I’ll do this method during water changes until the tank water PH is at 6.6 I guess.  Also found new born shrimplets yesterday and two more berried females. I haven’t seen any berried in about a month so I’m happy.

      But the shrimp will be thinking otherwise. Look at all that yummy brown diatom!
