  1. I think that it depends on the population in the tank. if you have a 10 gallon tank with hundreds of shrimp the lack of space makes it hard for females to get away from males so I'd say a very low ratio of males. With a smaller colony and more tank space and hiding places it won't be as much of an issue.
  2. I would advise against this, I think there might be a few that will reproduce in Neo tanks but majority of caridina will NOT thrive or have a high baby survival.
  3. His post is from 2014, he probably doesn't have these
  4. I agree with the others, no fish with shrimp for best results
  5. there is no fast way to cycle ADA Amazonia,as other have said it leeches ammonia for a long time. It will be about 2 months minimum before its ready.
  6. FANCY RED TIGERS (mixed patterns) These are young adults, mixed patterns (someare more fancy and some more simple) 10 for $55 or 20 for $100 PH 6.2 KH 0 GH 4 TDS 140 BLOODY MARY These are .8-1.2 cm, young juvies 10 for $40 or 20 for $75 FREE with order... Will include free NL Moss (2x3" flat) and Free Mulberry Leaves 4x6 bag USPS PRIORITY MAIL $12.
  7. Yes its known that they get light after shipping, during stress and even can go opposite and intensely colored at maturity or breeding (dramatic improvement from juvie size) I've witnessed it all. The color can be influenced by all of the above.
  8. I did report it this morning to admin..
  9. If it originally came as blue, and lost its color, They could be stressed. Caridina with blue (blue bolt, shadow panda) can change color intensity depending on things like temp, stress, breeding etc. You can put some good quality blue bolts in with them to improve and refine the line.
  10. Still available! Get some rare moss for your shrimp tanks I can send it loose if preferred (not attached to cholla)
  11. MOSS ON CHOLLA! 3" Cholla logs with Moss attached (with fishing line) All mosses are grown in low tech shrimp tanks (no co2 or ferts) All of these mosses are considered rare! Cameroon $14 Notocyphus Lutescens $14 Anchor $10 or all 3 (1 of each kind) for $30 Shipping is $5 USPS.
  12. Welcome to the hobby Neocaridina are the entry level shrimp that are quite hardy especially when you start with healthy quality stock and the right setup/parameters. You won't need a heater, but you will need to know your parameters, I presume your tank setup will be geared towards Neocaridina (popular beginner shrimp) You can keep various colors together but when breeding, they will produce pale or muddled/brown color babies. The way to avoid this with Neocaridina is to keep only 1 color instead of mixing. Shrimp can accept or tolerate parameters outside of their ideal, but they won't thrive or reproduce AS well as when you give them the prime target of parameters and setup. Shrimp do enjoy flow but not so much that they have to struggle against it,and yes you will need a prefilter as babies will get sucked into the filter. Months of cycling is not needed for Neocaridina. Just make sure its fully cycled. In a 45 gallon I'd suggest a minimum of 20 shrimp, but it depends on your goals or personal preference. 10 shrimp will be hard to see in a 45 gallon so you'll have to wait awhile before the colony grows. For tank setup I suggest watching a setup video for Neocaridina Shrimp on youtube. Start with testing your water and work from there. A few important tips- establish the ideal parameters, and cycle the tank, buy healthy quality shrimp (no import neos) do NOT use shrimp soil if your setting up for neocaridina(soil is meant for caridina/soft water environment)use inert substrate, have patience
  13. Looking at a few of your closeup pics, It looks to be lacking pigment
  14. Buy quality homebred stock and cull them regularly to improve and maintain appearance. Don't mix different color neos together, will result in diluted color and more often wild type coloration (brown mottled)
  15. I would not recommend any other shrimp other then Neos in your water params, its on the high end even for tangerine tiger.
