I was given a bit of a rare opportunity recently to look through actual wholesale pricing and volumes from an international supplier, I cant/wont say specifics but what I can say is it made me cry seeing the range and pricing available overseas...

It's bad enough with the options we already have here! Not worth the heartache looking overseas!!

Even if they are stunning and shockingly inexpensive!!:banghead:

If the laws on shrimp keeping are relaxing then is there a hope that we may one day be able to importjibdcb

There was an import report being prepared for them, not sure how far it got but I'll see if I can find out.

Dave sent me a copy of this to peruse and add to if I see areas where other info is required. Don't believe it has been submitted yet but will have a good look through it over this next week. Many members participated in getting it developed so would love to see it get to submission stage at very least.

      Thanks! Decided my current setup is good enough in terms of aeration since my sponge filter is connected to an air pump cranked all the way up. The outlet of the sponge filter is also in the flow of the canister so that should help generate more surface agitation Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

      That's exactly how I would start with selective breeding for higher quality. Separate as many good shrimp as you can into another tank.

      My 'thing' is variety so I would just remove ones that I'm not keen on, or if I get too many of one/lower grade and need to reduce numbers! With all taiwan bee types you never get the boring natural types you get with neocaridina over time! I guess if I was to want to concentrate on one grade I would get a smaller additional tank and put those shrimp in that and just keep moving them from tanks, to the right tank as and when they appear as babies but of the wrong grade for the tank they are in, if that makes sense, and you still have the mixed tank to enjoy. I don't know how you tell what genes the shrimp are carrying or what the offspring will look like thats too advanced for me? Simon

      Thanks Simon and jayc.  I have several grades and patterns amongst the CRS. How do you guys think I should go about more selective breeding? Pick a quality I like then separate a few that have that quality?  Lizzy

      as long as you have good surface movement you will have plenty of oxygen. air stones and venturi setups don't put extra oxygen in the tank as the bubbles are too big, all gas exchange happens at the surface. The only exception is if you run c02, you need no surface movement and the plants provide oxygen.
