I was taking a few pics late this afternoon of my orange breeders and little ones, when i spotted this little bloke in their midst, he is only about 3mm and would not stay still for the pictures. Amongst a sea of orange he stands out like a sore thumb. i will try and hunt him down over the next couple of daye and see if I can get better pics. He is actually a deep blue in colour the pict have a bit of reflection.post-29-139909857292_thumb.jpgpost-29-139909857291_thumb.jpgpost-29-139909857297_thumb.jpgpost-29-139909857295_thumb.jpg

substrate!!!! guys you are all going to shudder brrrrrrr a bit of well washed sea sand and a bit of black and grey river gravel

PH ATM 7.5 :cower:

I am always supprised at the odd shrimp that turns up when you start line breeding.:smiley_simmons: I never know what my next move will be,:encouragement:

I could throw him in with the little white one sometime in the future, Thats if I can find them again. Who Knows??? Thats what I like about this hobby the challenge!!!!! and the unknown.

      IME, the healthiest and highest quality has always buying directly from hobbyist, usually a small setup in their garage or fish room. Next was specialty store/importer, last is the local TFS, both often having stock that has been imported, transported and kept in less than ideal conditions... Buying directly from hobbyist has always produced the best results for me...

      Did boil a few times, the water wasn’t completely clear when I stopped cleaning it. So they should be getting some tannins. I was able to remove all but one rock, I have one more piece to put in in its plAce today.   Right on. I’m originally from Ohio, and I’ve been scoping out Flip’s videos and website for a few weeks now. Looks like I’ll be ordering from either Flip or AquaHuna after I get this tank works out completely.   TDS is already down slightly after removing the rock and doing a small water change. I also took the opportunity to remove some plants I wasn’t a fan of and replace them. Indian Almond Leaves came in today too, but my BacterAE is delayed. Thanks Amazon.🙄🙄

      Its about 1 cm its definitely of breeding age.. i would be happy if its male, but my eyes is untrained when it comes to fully colored males.

      I would think that is a male IF it is old enough to be able to tell but I think it is maybe too young to tell? This video should give you some handy tips for seeing the differences! https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/topic/14104-telling-male-from-female-shrimp/ Simon

      Im having a hard time trying to figure the gender of my shrimp.. so i know that virgin females is usually more skinnier than your usual large females..  My shrimp are mostly average grade fire reds, most of the males seems pale in coloration. Can anybody help me?
