Shrimp Hatchery Rack (New Pics added 11-15-05)
 
For a while now I've been wanting to setup a few tanks with a few different types of shrimp and start breeding them.

Currently housed in the system pictured below:

Cherry
Bumblebee
Crystal Red
Rainbow
Green
Indian Blue?

Along with various shrimp species there are multiple types of mosses, including:

Java
Weeping
Taiwan
Xmas
Locally collected Willow type
Unknown variety Amano brought from Japan for AGA demo.

More tanks are on order, seems a local university cleaned every out of 5gal recently. Also have 10 2.5's on the way for selective cross breeding experiments.

Very cool, Gnat -- I'll be interested in how your operation goes. What do the 'Indian Blues' look like?

What was advertised as Indian Blue may be a Caridina cf. babaulti variant. I was only able to get 2, hoping they are male and female. Looking to eventually cross them with the Green Caridina cf. babaulti.

Would love to buy some babaultis from you when you're ready.

Love the setup, makes more sense this way too ... will think about setting up something similar. Thanks for posting and showing us.

What kind of rack is it? And how big are your tanks? Are they 10gal tanks?


I had bought 2 types of racks (4 feet wide. one is 2 feet deep and another is 18 inch deep). They both claim they can support 1,500 pounds each shelf. Guess what, with four 10gal tanks (all are bare bottoms), the shelf starts curving. My 10gal tanks must be built with some outer space material and must be un-believably HEAVY.

Nice. Are you running the sponge filters off the same pump? What are the floating red plants? Just curious.

The floating red plants are Phyllanthus fluitans or redroot floater is it's common name. The leaves are a tad smaller than frogbit and it gets little tiny white flowers under super intense lighting.

Ha!! If my walls were only that white Edward....

The rack is 48 x 18 x 74. Tank sizes range from 2 - 20 gal, the majority being 5gal right now. The shelves are rated are 350lb per shelf and do deflect a little. All the tanks have sponge filters, each shelf has it own air pump, mostly for redundancy as well the ability to make quick and easy changes to the setup.
