      Good to see you back and great that everything is going well now. Usually you should try and get juveniles as they are better at adjusting to new water parameters, but that is assuming they have juveniles, which they may not! You can't tell whether they are male or female at this stage though. If they have adults you can choose how many of each you want (if my memory serves correct the 2 you have left were males??? but I can't find the photo/post-my bad) but as long as you have some of each sex I am sure that your setup is now settled/constant enough that they will quickly breed (they aren't as prolific breeders as cherry shrimp though, smaller groups of babies and they don't reproduce until 6 months old). The only other thing you can look at really that I know about is whether they are lively/active, with good solid colouring. As you already have plenty of shrimp keeping success I think you can safely rely on your own judgement in that respect? Others may have more advice? Mine have always come in the post so I didn't get to pick them? They are a bit more sensitive/delicate so slower drip acclimatise them than the neos. Look forward to hearing/seeing what happens next!  Simon

      Hello everybody!! I am about to make a trip down to the fish stores to hopefully pick some crystals to replenish my first tank that i started(the 16litre). It is very stablized right now and houses the bloody marys and 2 surviving crystals. The bloody marys have acclimated to the parameters nicely since the majority of them are juvi shrimps that have been birthed in this caridina parameters. My question is, what are some of the things you guys look out for when picking out caridinas? I would appreciate some pointers as previously i was busy trying to get my parameters right and the basics of doing good water changes so i have not been buying new shrimps. But since now im ready to get some crystals, i realized i need more input on how you guys spot good shrimp quality. Things have been going great with the temps of both shrimp tanks, they range at 21 to 23°c. Tds is kept at 200 for the yellows and 180 for the crystal/bloody mary tank. Currently have got 2 berried yellow mamas, she must have hatched all of her babies wen i was in japan coz now i see two berried mamas and plenty of small friends swimming around. So very happy. I foresee culling in this tank soon, as it is only a 10litre and i did not expect the population to be increasing when i started this tank. Again, thank you to everyone here that helped so much in my learning process. The shrimps that i hatched artifically have grown to a considerable size as well after i came back, saw 2 in an adolescent size? I assume they are from that batch.

      I hope so too, Simon. The ammonia has dropped. Even 24 hours after last 25% water change. Nitrites and Nitrates are still up.will see if the ammonia stays at 4ppm and then drops further. I suppose no use worrying about nitrites until ammonia is close to zero.
