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!

Hello All

Howdy folks.

Well, I'm a science teacher in Long Beach, and I'm setting up my first(sort of) plant tank.

My fishy resume.....

Hahaha. I spent 2 years in high school working in the Petsmart Fish department. When I was working there I tried one plant tank, but was surprised when all of the Tetra soil that I bought washed away. lmao. (don't worry...super employee discount).

So now I have come around full circle, and decided to set up a 50g plant tank in my science classroom. Needless to say, this will have to be as DIY and budget friendly as possible. Anyone have any plant clippings/plants they want to donate to the youth of Long Beach? =)

So I've had a great time researching my new set up, and can't wait for the first Scape RL meating.

Greetings,
Jon

Hey every one

My name is John Pirrone, all my friends call me Pepperonihead! I have been into planted tanks for aproximately eight years or more, can't remember! I have had fish tanks since I was a little guy. My tank now is a 72 gallon bow front with tons of plants, rainbows, some Apistos, some endlers, Congos, neons, etc. I am addicted and need to go to Plantaholics anonymous!
