As I was starting to move the algea magnet across the front of the 75g today so I could get a better view of the tank, look what I found


Sorry for the dirty glass but I didn't have time properly clean it. I started looking around the tank and here is another shrimplet right above the momma shrimp


These are very newly hatched shrimp...how do I know, look closely at the momma shrimp's back leg to see the next little guy coming out...




I've got to thank Rob for the shrimp. This was my last attempt at trying to breed these little guys. I think maybe the bigger tank has been a plus for me. The best part is I have five more berried females that should be giving birth over the next couple of weeks. Hopefully I can get some better pics...

Needless to say I am tickled that I finally managed to get some babies from some CRS...gotta get a couple more tanks set up for these little guys now!

If you want bigger pics you can head over to our new SWOAPE site and check out the shrimp forum. I don't have to post small pics over there like I do here

CONGRATS!!! You said your last attempt.... So what size tank did you try them in before? Do you think it was the size of the tank that was the limiting factor? Do you have them all by their lonesome in that big 75gal?

Thanks TexGal...this is my third attempt at breeding them. I've lost about 40 CRS in the past. I had them in a 10g tank before and each time they would slowly die off over the course of a couple of months. They seem to be doing better in the 75g than they ever did in my 10g tank. I can't say the tank is the cause for this success since I did move a few miles recently. Things definitely seem much better at the new house though.

Tex Gal - I have 25 adult shrimp all by their lonesome in a 75g tank. There are probably a few babies in there alos and hopefully a lot more in the near future.

Allen - I'm having some luck with the other shrimp. I have several berried Snowballs, a saddled Green and several Saddled Cherries. Still no luck with the New Bees or Tigers and the Blue Pearls are way too tiny to be getting saddled. It will be a few months on them. No luck with the Amanos yet either.

Congrats Matt! Now whatever you do, don't feed them the New Life Spectrum H20 Stable DEATH wafers! (still can't believe I lost about 300 adults of the lower grade crs and probably about 30 adults of the S grades). With any luck we'll also avoid planaria in our CRS tanks!

Nah man, I got rid of that food a long time ago. I still don't think it is the food, a lot of folks feed it successfully but I won't use it again just to be safe.

So far so good on the Planaria in the 75g. I've been able to dramatically reduce their numbers in my 10g tanks with some deep gravel vacs. Add to that some daily (twice daily sometimes) siphon removal with airline tubing and they are nearly gone. Still no fry yet in any of the 10's so time will tell if it is really helping.

OK MatPat - once you get big and famous for your colossal shrimp farm, like someone else we know, you'll have to post pxs of them all in a feeding frenzy. With 5 other berried females that shouldn't be too far from now!
