Hi guys, here is a video of my 30 litres dennerli tank which has been running for 2.5 years now.

Started a new bigger tank for them so they will have more space .

Awesome sight, don't often get to see so many in one tank. Love their little " white gloves" waving away.

Thanks Ineke.

Even in large numbers they are still shy, I usually only see 30 or 40 at a time unless I put food and I sit down and wait for a bit like I did when I took the video.

I had 6 in a 10 gallon tank but my numbers are dwindling slowly. What kind of food do yours like?

I give them the same food as my other shrimps as long as the food is soft enough.

With the number of shrimp you have there is not point trying to feed them, they will more than likely not touch the food.

@NoGi I think to be successful with sulawesi shrimps you need to do do 20-30 % water changes a week. Due to the high Ph and water temperature, the bacterial count in the water is higher than in the bee tanks, so they are more likely to suffer from bacterial infections.

      I LOVE the Velvet blue you have.  Beautiful specimen!

      It's my first time guys!  I got these as my first shrimp, they were berried within 2 days and I had to squeal this morning when I woke up to babies!  So far I count 13.  I had 2 berried females so I know there's more...  They are orange cherries 😄

      As helpful as pictures are I was wondering if there is a written description of the different colour varieties, much like what would be for say a show dog where desired criteria must be met in order for it to be grand champion worthy or pet quality. I ask because I am seeing many people selling "blue dreams" for example but there seems to be a great deal of difference with regards to darkness of the blue or clarity of the blue. And many of the sellers are either correctly claiming the shrimp are high grade or wrongly duping ( Not all but some and some could be doing it by accident too from not having a definitive accurate description to go by) new buyers who go on to breed said shrimp and sell on the offspring guessing they are high grade because they purchased high grade.

      The best write up on CPD's I've come across (and I've been trying to read everything I can find on them). Fantastic photos too. From the first time I read about and watched CPD's online I wanted some with a clear intent to breed them. It took me over 6 months to find some CPDs in a LFS to purchase (could have got some shipped earlier, but hated the idea of them not surviving as they are not cheap in Australia). Finally I found and bought 20 less than a week ago. Fitted right in with my community tank, colour improving daily. A tank to house them in is maturing and intend to pick out a few to see if they will breed there to start with. Plan is to get breeding tanks set-up soon and looking forward to trying some of the methods explained pretty clearly in this article. Hope I remember to come back here and share my experience. Thanks S1l3nt!
