  1. I have never tried using breeder boxes.
  2. With the ADA soil you are going to be fighting a losing battle until the soil starts to lose its buffering capabilities. The ADA is doing what it is supposed to be doing. All my tanks run between 5.8-6.0 and my shrimps breed like rabbits.
  3. Bigger tank means less upkeep and more stable water conditions. Bigger tanks are far more forgiving when it comes to mistakes or neglect. The down side is the initial setup can be or will be expensive. My favorite size is 180 gallons.

    Saluwesi bandits

    Super easy to keep and reproduces faster than neo's. The clutches are huge. So far about 1/3 of the babies have the amount of black that people see in the pictures that SteveR posted.

    Oak leaves

    I would boil for 10-15min. How many leaves to put in really depends on the size of the leaves. Some oaks have more tannins than others, red oak for example have more tannins than white so that would be another factor to consider.
  15. I have heard the foam from China breaks down after a few years. 5cm / 2inches or thicker should be used. I only trust Poret. I only know of two places that sell it and they are in North America. http://www.swisstropicals.com/ http://www.angelsplus.com/index.htm
  16. 45ppi is the preferred choice but 30ppi is safe for babies and fish fry.

    Thank you, ShimpSpot-eers

    That is why I never became a member at TPT . There are many successful techniques when it comes to raising shrimps, pick/find one and stick to it. The most important thing is consistency.

    My Amanos are jerks. Should I remove them?

    No personal experience with amano's killing adult shrimps but I wouldnt be surprised.

    Amano's are apex predators of the shrimp world. They will eat babies.
