  1. After this video, I removed half-dozen of brackish water dwelling Amano shrimps from my third tries on third gens Amano shrimp larvae. They seem dining on larvae protein.
  2. Four of these Amano shrimp never see the day light of freshwater. They live their entire life in 10 ppt to 20 ppt brackish water ever since they were born. Never seen to care much about the Shrimp food. Think they live on diatoms and algae.
  3. Quite a few of second generation Amano shrimp to continue my experiments.
  4. None of the third generation Amano larvae lived past 20 days. Temperature swing during winter time may be the cause of all that. Or I need to fine tune the ppt ?
  5. Just like I thought they can survive another week, here the lone surviving larvae on it days 14 swimming video. All that end the next day. That’s how I gauge the salinity level for third generation larvae and now raising some F3 larvae at 10 PPT and doing alright so far.
  6. Last test on F2 larvae in freshwater lasted a week. The test on F3 larvae now in a week and swimming beautifully. I think they can live on in freash water for another week. They are certainly adapting and inching toward freshwater rearing larvae.
  7. Dropped a couple of berries wild caught Amano Shrimp in the tank with second generation berries Amano shrimp. The tank raised shrimp adapted to the aquarium setting and half theirs size. They will feel at home in a nano desk top planted aquarium.😋
  8. Begin to notice some pre berries female second generation shrimp at 10 months of age. A lot of MTS shells there on the substrate, assassin snail got the MTS under control.
  9. Backup batch of second generation baby Amano shrimp in the work.
  10. The methods that I used to find out the good salinity on the larvae batch I working with is by flicking a spotlight in front of the tank and and see how first they swims to the light and the way they dance and act then ajust the salinity level accordingly start form 34ppt to lower it slowly. First generation tank raised on 30 to 34 ppt. second generation tank raised on 22 to 24 ppt. For third generation, my guess I will like to lower the salinity to 13 to 15 ppt, whether it will get to that remain to be seem. At least I thought it can get to that salinity level. The second generation tank raised now maturing in a few months, so Hopefully I have success in raising a third generation tank raised Amano Shrimp. Well, working on a project to induced a rapid evolutionary change to the Amano Shrimp. Something like HIREC ( Human-Induced Rapid Evolutionary Change). Whether the subsequent generation can keeps lower salinity to survive and morph into shrimplets remains to be seem.
  11. Working on some second generation larvae batch growing at different stage.
  12. Good to hear that you had succeed in breeding the potimirin glabra. Look similar to amano. Do they use as algae cleaner in planted tanks.
  13. Submerged a Fluval sea hydrometer in the Larvae rearing tank to gauge the salinity level today.
  14. Another batch of one day old second generation larvae added to the tank with a month old F2 larvae.
  15. I do not have any available now and that may change later. Keeping them to breed a third generation tank raised Amano shrimp. Will be interesting to see if the third generation can go even lower salinity requirement to morph than the second generation. Here the new batch F2 larvae at 10 to 14 days old. And another video clips on five mouth old shrimp. I used Nannochloropsis ( Japanese chlorella) micro algae to raise them. Can culture in salt and fresh water, feed the salt water culture algae to the larvae and fresh water culture to the newly morph shrimp.
