What's your substrate? It looks like coral crush. If like that, your water would be PH high and GH/KG high too.

Yep crush coral also have some on river sand and some on shrimp soil and yes I know that gh kh and ph would be high just cant give correct specs. Most of my shrimp run on 3 dif subs in 3 separate tanks 3 dif water per.

Great to see your work Daydream. I am currently working for the same results -hopefully. I have a lovely batch of blue babies that hopefully stay blue as they molt. It's nice to see someone else's shrimp to have a comparison and goal.

I like your attitude leaving them alone unless something is wrong! If it ain't broke don't fix it and by your results it's working well. Congratulations you have some awesome shrimp in all colours :beer:

You are so mean Daydream! Not for feeding your culls to the fish - that's life- but teasing us! I might have to start calling you DD ( as in BB) because you are getting to be as big a tease as he is ( except he does share sometimes:) ) :whip:

Don't worry ineke, daydream shares he gives away more than he sells to hobbyists.

      It may be a good idea to 'at least' decide Bee shrimp or Cherry shrimp at this stage, as they prefer different water parameters and you can then work towards those ideals? As blue ridge has said, Flip import most of their shrimp from what I have seen on the youtube videos? Simon

      Have you actually seen one of these? I got one and it had great pictures but it isn't really about anything in particular and I binned the one I got as apart from the great photos there was nothing really of interest just bits and pieces about 'breeders n keepers', so I couldn't complain as that was what it was called. I wanted a book about all aspects of keeping shrimps and this wasn't that. I believe one f the experts has written a book and I wish I bought it when I saw it on my suppliers website as it has also gone now. I recommend seeing one before buying though as it MAY not be what you want/think it is???? Simon

      Gotcha. I’ve really been eyeing some ,”Fire Reds,” or some,”Blue Dreams,” from LRBretz, those are out of this world.

      Does anyone know if these are in print anywhere? They don't seem to print nearly enough copies to meet demand, issue after issue sells out and is gone forever.

      I wonder why that would be? I'd think an oak is an oak wherever it's growing. Perhaps a result of me leaving them in the sun? It's not a big issue, once they get soaked they become pliable and soft it's just a head scratcher...
