sorry for weird question

but, already try 90-180 tds,ph 5.5-6.5, gh 3-8 and temp 23C  for 3 month

unfortunately never see any berried tiger at all...

from pure tiger, tiger bee, taitibe, (just start with pinto)
 

i know the water parameter still not best for tiger shrimp, but my friend success breeding those tiger variants with tds 110 ph 6 temp 23

 

anyone could share their experience how to breed those shrimps?

 

Thx

I wish I could tell. There was a time they were exploding around here. From 10 to 300 in a short period. At the moment I don't have much tigers anymore (sold most of them), around 30 maybe. But non of them are berried for months now and I can't tell why. They live happy and very active, but no eggs whatsoever.

Breeding tigers is not my goal at this moment, so I don't pay attention to it by experimenting with food or water parameters. Maybe I will try, I will let you know if I find anything :-).

congratulation joker :)

 

i just realize there so much death from my female tiger variants, because there is less and less female tiger when i got so much male tiger...

i'm afraid it's because the female tiger get attacked when molting

 

i will add more female tiger later, but for now i will monitoring my tank and see if there too much male shrimp

      Great shot of Big Mama!  I reckon, 1 week tops for hatching.

      Great photo and news. The eggs are fading yellow but there are eyes so all looking good and there are a lot of eggs! Probably about half way ready to hatch.

      Let's hope the big mama can lay safely those eggs

      Sorry, I'm not in that area. 🙃   I prefer Glass tanks. Acrylic scratches way too easily. Often while cleaning algae off the sides. And once it's built up enough scratches, viewing gets obstructed.    Often going with LARGE tanks, you start to fall into custom built stands. So don't be surprised if you cannot find anything suitable.

      The easiest way wouod be to go to an aquarium shop and get a tank with a cabinet made for that tank, as that should be able to support the weight, as water in any large quantity is very heavy. I suspect it would have to be a glass aquarium at that capacity, otherwise the plastic would have to be very thick. It is possible to use a non aquarium specific piece of furniture but as you say it is quite risky, though I did help a friend do that by strengthening a nice decorative piece of furniture they had that they wanted to put a 350L tank on. It has been doing the job for 10 years but also bear in mind water marks, and we had to varnish many coats to make sure water doesn't soak into the wood etc. Its not really worth it in reality, it cost a lot of money to buy all the wood/stuff to strengthen it so was probably no cheaper, and a lot of time doing it. It may be dearer to get a combo tank and stand but much much easier and safer, and only you can know what ones you llike the appearance of? I would start off going to local stores and seeing if they have any you like, and even if not it will give you ideas?
