    Mixing neocaradina

    Hey guys. I have been selectively breeding wild type neocaradina for 3 years now, and I absolutely outdid myself with acheiving store-grade pumpkin shrimp! Anyway, that is besides the point. I was wondering if anyone would know if I could mix them with orange rilis. If so, what would the...

    What’s wrong with my pregnant neocardinia shrimp

    It’s hard to tell in the pictures but her eggs have like a white fluffy casing and it’s almost like bursting out of her. Is this some sort or parasite? Is she molting? She is very acting and otherwise seems healthy but in my hundreds of shrimp i’ve never seen this. Thank you

    Scutariella Japonica - Shrimp Stopped Breeding

    I had a thriving colony of Bloody Mary Shrimp that went from 12 to 300 in roughly nine months. I noticed Scutariella Japonica, the parasitic nematode, in late December so I culled down to 2 dozen and did salt dips on 12/27, 12/29, and 12/31, followed by a month of quarantine to remove their...

    No Electricity Eco Shrimp Tank

    My old shrimp tank ended up getting decommissioned before it has got going as we had an issue with the electrics in the shed. So everything was cleaned and put away for another day. My main tank is doing well, but the number of fish in there means it’s unlikely I’ll get the shrimp population...

    Culling mixed neocaridina shrimp

    Hi, I have a tank with mixed neocaridina shrimp. I know most people don’t like when they are mixed, but for me it’s not about breeding them, it’s about having several different colors in the same tank, I find that so much fun. I have seen though that several of the babies are brown or clear...

    Should I remove different species shrimp?

    Im getting 20 new blue velvet shrimps, but my tank already has 3-4 orange sakura shrimps and 1 red rili. My concern is if they breed the offspring will have bad coloring. They are housed in a 25 gallon, I also have a 90 gallon but I house turtles and large goldfishes in there. I could feed them...
