hi,jonh the hc is doing great but 3 of the shrimp died i think that the water of my tanks is too soft for them, but i set up a new tank with tap water just for them hopping that they breed.

I'll comment on the cherries I got from you, John... They're doing great! At least two, if not three or four of the females are carrying eggs! I'm so excited! How long to they typically carry the eggs?

In conjunction with Cassie's question... I bought a few ghost shrimp about a year ago and thought they all were eaten. I have recently, however, found a minimum of 3 of them. Two were carrying eggs and one of them seems to have turned red. Kind of confused on the red one.

Guess the question I wanted to ask is weather the eggs have a chance in a community tank. I am now gathering equipment to make a 10g shrimp tank. These 3 shrimp may be the first occupants.

Hope this ain't to far off topic,
dale

well, to continue on the off topicness...we threw in some ghost shrimp in my mom's old tank which had angles, knowing they'd most likely be a yummy treat for them and they soon vanished, only to periodically re-appear and then disappear again. The tank was only moderatly planted too. I have ghost shrimp in my 29g community with yoyo loaches, cories, tetras, and dwarf gouramis (formerly powder blue, now honey) and they do fine. Alone in a tank, I've had ghosts breed and usually I'll get between 3-6 who make it to adulthood from each batch, but it's not really worthwhile to breed them, since you can get them 10 or 12 for $1... and they are useless algea eaters. If you really want to try shrimp in your community tank, I've heard it's a good idea to set up a shrimp tank and then just move the adults over to the community tank and don't expect the babies to make it, although there are always the few that surprise you! =)

As for the redness a few of my ghosts have red spots on their tails or antenas, but never actually turned red all over...

I hope that's at least a bit helpful!
