Greetings good folk of SKF, I'm interested to know what people's experiences are with keeping shrimps at higher than normal temperatures? My cherry cull tank had to endure temperatures between 28-35 for several days in a row this summer. All remaining berries were dropped at this time but some of them seem to be in good health still, while others have perished. There are a few batches of juvies in there at the moment and as they mature I am just curious whether the survivors were to breed again and then later generations were forced to survive the summer again and the process repeats over the course of a few years etc etc then to what degree might it be possible to breed a cherry shrimp at is "built for aussie conditions"? Keeping shrimp cool can be an expensive and/or hobby-killing exercise and in my opinion it would be a great thing for them to comfortably survive temps in the low 30s (or higher). I also know that the person i got my CRS from have told me that they had handled 28C safely at least for short periods. The ones that I got from him coped with several afternoons that reached 27 even briefly reaching 28 - and breeding didn't seem to be effected at all. Could anyone guess how much further the envelope may be pushed? love n peace will
