Sadly my original babaulti are no longer around after a period of neglect I'm afraid to say. However I was surprised to discover I have 2 or 3 juveniles that are kicking about and look promising. Fingers crossed I have both sexes as they seem to be really uncommon in Australia. There's plenty of reports of people losing their colonies for some reason which is interesting because I know that in the US the babaulti seem to be quite hardy and prolific. In my case it was a nitrate spike which caused the losses.

Love and peace

Green Babaultis are quite rare in Aus. Too bad you lost most of them.

Send some over to me next time for a backup population. ✌️

Started to put some lights in. It's a pretty time-consuming affair trying to figure out placement and measure it up etc. I tidied up the airline situation and have tanks in place for purpose of measuring light positions so here is a pic!9409a655247dedd55b03bf5bcc92b703.jpg

      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!
