    Are these shrimp eggs?

    There’s a saclike thing attached to the side of the tank with a bunch of white specks in it. It’s a shrimp tank, but I thought shrimp carried their eggs. Nothing else in the tank but pest snails and a neeite snail. But I thought I remembered nerites dropped the big white flecks, not sacs.

    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...

    15 Gal Column

    My 15 gallon column currently has 5 Otocinculus cats and about 50 RCS. I am looking for another kind of shrimp that will not breed with the Cherries, but are easy to keep. I considered a bamboo previously for a 20 gal. Would one be okay in the 15? I have some driftwood that sits right in the...

    My blue dwarf neocaradinas have been getting by okay but I was starting to think that I had been unlucky and bought 10 males. This morning they were zooming around the tank faster then I have seen them and in the middle the only one that has shown any female characteristics was making her eggs...

    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...

    Can't watch my shrimp!

    I've had a tank going for a few months now with a small number of neocaridina shrimp (hopefully more soon!), but I haven't had much chance to observe them. I 'scaped the tank with lots of caves and hidey-holes, and they seem to enjoy that, I guess--I almost never see them at all. Sometimes when...

    neocaridina or cardina shrimp

    Hi, I decided I was probably going to do shrimp breeding in my 10 gallon tank. I heard that caridina shrimps where hard to keep and I am not even sure I could breed them in 10 gallon... Would that be possible? Also my water is on the softer side (PH:6.8-7 GH:3-5). What would be better cardina or...

    Additional Fish or Shrimp ideas for 50L?

    Hi all, Was hoping to get some thoughts on a centerpiece fish, shrimp or other fish I can get for my aquarium (unless I'd be overstocking); I've had a look at the other "centerpiece fish" forum posts, but every tank is different so wanted specific thoughts to reduce the chance of any issues.

    Aquarium plants

    Can any plant be poisonous to shrimp? I bought 3 new plants from an aquarium yesterday - they were in a tank with snails and shrimp already so there isn't a copper issue, but my shrimp this evening seems to have taken a turn for the worse. Here are my plants
