Hi guys,

 

Just wanted to vent out my frustration...after patiently waiting to see if my oebt would ever berry up...she finally did only to find she had dropped them all next day, I thought oh well may just be her first berry so let it go as unexperienced mum. She then berried up a second time and yep you guessed it no more eggs next day, Argggggh! I have my oebt in with snows and blondes that are seperated and they never drop their eggs. Why is it always the one you want the most to have no problems always be the one that does! I know although she is quite a big girl she may just be a young mumma and will eventually get there (hopefully).

 

PS. I think you sent me a dud girl! You know who you are...lol!

Know that feeling I have a giant Tibee that drops her eggs every time. Sometimes holds for 2 weeks but then still drops them just as I'm getting excited- she isn't young anymore so that's not her excuse and she has NEVER carried full term!! :growl:

:ass: LOL, a good hobbyist never blames his shrimps. If all the WP are good, its unusual for her to drop her eggs. I think you need to buy more OEBT's .... :lol:

Do you guys add mineral powder religiously ? I think the Mosura gravidos may also help....every tank is so differently, and it's difficult to pin point the exact cause. I also use the benibachi shrimp water...can't proof it does magic, but they all work well for me.

As said she is the only one in the tank that drops her eggs...I hope she drops this bad habit of hers soon. I do use mineral powder weekly. Tonic pro, bee max, etc...

Yeah I had a problem with that a while back &, as BB said, found it was due to water! :thumbsu:

My female is in with breeders and lots of babies so must just be her. I add weekly minerals after water change.

      My parents have an aquarium, so I don't know if this will help, but still want to leave a suggestion. They also liked the idea of installing a light strip in it, so they started looking on amazon. I don't know what went wrong, but it broke on the fifth day of use. I think it was a cheap Chinese thing (although the website told me it was waterproof and durable). They asked me for help finding a better option, and I advised them of the smart LED multi-color light strips I used in my car. Being pretty skeptical, my dad still decided to try them. They have been working fine for a month now and don't even flicker. Mom says the fish are happy, lol. I hope my comment was helpful

      It's not looking good. Quarantine any shrimp showing Necrosis, as it can be infectious. Tell us what your water parameters are, and do a heavy water change after that. Increase surface agitation to get more oxygen into the water. A bit of H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) into the water to increase oxygen might also help the shrimps that have not yet contracted this.

      Sorry to see you have a problem. Try reading the section on 'muscular necrosis' in the below section. You will need to scroll down through it until you see the bold red heading of that description (it is quite a large article covering many problems etc, it is about the 5th item on the first page);   I don't have any personal experience of this but do ask any questions as someone may be able to help. A bit more general info may also  help, your setup, number of shrimps, how long you have had the shrimps, any water parameters you may have etc?

      Hello, I was wondering if anyone here had any first-hand information on these particular pictures. It describes exactly what a few of my shrimp have. The second picture is spot on and most accurate. Thanks

      #4 looks almost like a juvenile female to me, just looking at the abdomen in the top left image, but definitely looks more male in the other two images. The colour suggests it is an adult though, and it’s lacking a clear  so Simon is probably right in thinking it is male, that top left image is just confusing me a bit. If you’re going to get a female, to be sure, make sure it’s got an obvious yellow saddle. That’ll help you know it’s mature as well.
