Hi new shrimp owner here. I’ve read and done lot of research. I’ve had them for only a short time before the 3 females I have became berried all at once. One is an orange and she has a full batch of yellow eggs. I have a clear, with red saddle and tail and a little yellow. She has a small 4 eggs batch (assuming because she’s new to the tank or a new mom) and then this beauty (as seen pictured. When I read about egg color they are yellow or green. Can someone tell me about these blue eggs? The male is all black.
Okay, so the title pretty much says it all... One of my berried tts just moulted, and she left the eggs in the moult. What happened, and why?
I'm going to try to save the eggs with some sort of extraction, and I'll be very careful. She was pretty far along. I think I'll use the net over bubbler method. Does anyone have experience with this, and particularly the extraction? I won't do anything until I have some idea to go off.
Thanks in advance.
Oh and the moult is under like 2 hours old. Wasn't there when I started watching a movie, was there when I checked back after.
Going off this video:
Hoping the process will be similar.
any input appreciated
Has any progress been made in figuring out how to keep riffle larvae alive?
From what I've read here and elsewhere, it's not entirely clear whether it's an issue of chemistry/hardness or food.
This is a basic but important question, and I think it's easily answered by running a few experiments using water drawn from a creek where they naturally occur.
Is there anyone here that can help?
