Well, I breed Tiger shrimps in my tank 25l(40x25x25). IMHO breeding Tigers are little more difficult than RedCherry or Crystal Red.richy said:i'm curious to know others' experiences re: breeding the lil buggers. i bought myself 5 of 'em off a local guy, and i want to breed them. any help or comments welcome. thx.
Amano shrimps do not breed successfully in the typical freshwater tank unfortunately. They require brackish conditions during their larval stage. Here is a more thorough article on the process.richy said:heh... i have 10 amanos in the same tank right now, and i haven't been able to get them to breed. so if the tigers have the same breeding habits, it may be a lost cause.
Yes. Sometimes i fed them carrot. I use small slices(?) of carrot( thickness about 3-5mm) and I boil it about 15-20minutes. I must say my amanos in large tank can eat one pieces of carrot in 4-5h :lol: but cherrys or tigers eat the same pieces in 2days(well i think 50% of pieces eats slimes :lol: ).ShaneSmith said:Norbert you say you fed them carrots? Did you chop them up finely or just add large chunks.
iodine? Hmm...never heard about it. I think that no one in Poland use iodine in tank.Does anyone find adding Iodine necessary?
