    Breeding Amano shrimp

    Has anyone else here attempted to breed and raise their amano shrimp larvae into full freshwater shrimplets? I am giving it a shot, using a refractometer to make sure I have the correct salinity. Wanting to see if anyone has any helpful tips. Sadly no algae formed within the salt tank as...

    Amano Shrimp and Tiger Barbs

    I'm just wondering if anyone has any lived experience of keeping Tiger Barbs with Amano shrimp (rather than general thoughts or conjecture)? The tiger barbs will be in a school of 25 minimum, so any aggression beyond their own hierarchical squabbling is likely to be limited and will be in a 193...

    4x Black Neons & 2x Amano Shrimp (Free to a good home) (Glasgow Area)

    Hey guys, I am about to move a very long way and the best thing to do seems to be to re-home the small number of resident from my planted nano. Rather than put them through that (if I even could across borders). There are 4x Black neons and 2x Amano shrimp. Little bit out of the way up here...

    Angelfish, Amano Shrimp and Corydoras

    Afternoon all, I'll be adding some angelfish (six juvenile) to my 120 gallon tank in the next few months. Nothing in there are the moment as it`s nearing the end of its cycle and the (juvenile) angelfish will be some of the last to go in. I haven't kept angels previously but while they're some...

    Shrimp hiding all of the time

    Hi, so I had a new aquarium around a month ago and had a couple of amano shrimp in there. The shrimp, along with all of the other fish were really happy and doing great. However i haven't seen my shrimp in around a week now so I looked for them and got a torch and looked under some drift wood...

    Stocking a 35 litre (8 gallon) Biorb Tube tank

    Hi guys, Completely new to the hobby so please forgive me for my naivety. Bought a Biorb Tube 35 litre over the weekend. Having read the reviews I can see they aren't the best tank but wanted to start small. I've set up the tank, added a heater and now letting it cycle. With regard to...

    What Kind Of Shrimp Is This...

    I was told it was a yamato (apparently aka amano) when I bought it. But apparently shrimp get miss-sold sometimes?! I look at yamato shrimp on google images and they are spotty, my shrimp has some spots but also strips that are reddish in colour! Maybe it's a ghost shrimp? I hear they can be...

    Compatability: Amano And Red Cherry Shrimp

    Hi all,  I've been away from the forums for a long time, so it's nice to be back.  I'll be to the point tho:   I've just converted my 10g tank to an invert tank.  I have some serpae tetras and some other random fish in there before and two amano shrimp that were quite happy.  I took out all the...
