Blue diamond colony

Recommended Posts

Brad_addie

I currently have a small colony of blue diamond neocardina. I’m having a hard time finding any online. I would like to add some new blood to the colony  What would be a good line to add to this colony other than blue diamonds that won’t throw  wild coloration?

I wouldn't mix it with anything else but more Blue Diamonds.

Don't rush it when looking for more.

Make use of the Want to Buy section of the forums, in case any of our US members have some they want to sell.

In the mean time, care for the small colony you have and they might breed !

Wise words. Patience is key. They are doing great. Still too small to start breeding. I’ll check the want/sell section. Just joined the forum yesterday. I’ll figure things out around here. Also looking for some cardinia babaulti green. Wish me luck! Thanks for the reply

      Indeed a good video. Except for his spelling of Desolved in TDS (should be Dissolved) I could not have done any better.

      Yes of course! Forgot about high Nitrates, and of course illness. But we probably need to clarify "low temps" for anyone new to the hobby. Winter months can see water temps fall below the shrimp's preferred temp range. It might not be detrimental to their health but it does slow their metabolism down. The remedy for low temps isn't to just give them high temps either, it needs to be within their ideal preferred range for that specific shrimp, eg Neo Caridina or Caridina or Sulawesi. I have known some people to have shrimp (cherries) survive our Australian winter out in ponds. So they can tolerate fairly low temps for an extended period.

      Also No3 , low Temp , and bacteria infections.

      This is a very good video on the basics if you are new to shrimps. It is called 'How to breed shrimp', not sure why as it is generally everything and a very good  and clear video guide?.

      I find the wrong water parameters for the type of shrimp to be a big factor for lethargic shrimp. It's usually the first sign that something is not right. Any measurable amount of Ammonia, can also cause this behaviour.  Moulting is also a big factor in shrimps being inactive. Right before and right after the moult they hide and usually don't move. The moulting process is very strenuous on the shrimp, and I find protein rich foods (eg bloodworms) helps a ton.
