Yeah too long, even spiderwood with all the thin branches takes a while 75e8931ae37b48a1f15e6ced00dfd2cc.jpg

Another interesting read! Excuse my skulking through old posts here but, did anyone actually try casual experimenting with this thesis?

I tried, but it was too difficult without a multitude of tanks. Each with a different temperature and one control tank. Each tank will have a male and female, with no mixing of babies from the other parents.

I Don't have enough tanks for that. Mine are all occupied with shrimp.

You have obviously identified the issue here which needs fixing. GET MORE TANKS! 😁

      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.
