My Black/Chocolate Girls

Recommended Posts

ineke

Just thought I would update my Chocolate colony info. I lost the majority of my girls last year and just wanted to show my big mamas off. I have about 12 of these girls berried at the moment and have to say I'm extremely happy with the quality of these girls. Maybe not quite as good as my old girls but then again these are much blacker and I'm not complaining:happydance:DSC_0459_zps44b7ccaa.jpgDSC_0458_zps0850464f.jpg

Thanks Jamie, that's a strip of Neo- chlor and I've put it in a few tanks with dark shrimp. It certainly helps with getting to see the shrimp.

Thanks Squiggs I guess I shouldn't be surprised at the quality as the parents were so good but these were my culls so pleasantly surprised they grew up so nice.

      Don't buy one! If you already have an air pump, then you are 90% there equipment wise. Save that money for the BBS eggs. Google "DIY brine shrimp hatchery" and follow creation of one using a 2L soft drink bottle. It should include instruction on how to hatch the eggs too.    The first 2 weeks are critical. If they survive and eat BBS, then you can start introducing other foods.

      Try bee pollen. I use that to feed baby shrimps in rotation with other powdered foods. If you don't use it up, heck, it's good for humans to eat too! You can find many on ebay. Spirulina is good too, as Simon mentioned.

      Okay. Do I just buy some sort of kit or something, is it easy? I’ll get something set up over the weekend hopefully. Thanks for the heads up jayc!

      In the first few weeks BBS is essential. It's not the same as Frozen BBS. The wriggling movements of newly hatched BBS attracts them to eat. You can try frozen, but you'll find them ignoring it, and the leftovers will just rot.

      That's ok then, I thought you must have lost a lot or something! The dwarf puffers are interesting but you can't even keep snails with them as they eat anything that moves? The dwarf rasboras like similar conditions to TB shrimp. I will see what happens with next weeks delivery of shrimps first and decide from there? In theory I could keep both as it is a heavily planted tank so some baby shrimp should survive - if I even get any that is? One step at a time! Simon
