    Welcome to the group. Send some pictures of your tank
  2. Hi David welcome to the group. Lots of experienced shrimp lovers here. Be sure to look at the archives in the genetics and breeding area of the forum.

    CRS with red eyes!

    This looks like a tiger hybrid to me, not a PRL. But I am no expert. Pretty shrimp though
  4. I am so sorry. I agree, the safest is to start over.

    Any left?
  7. Love the red spots. Interesting. Wonder if clear areas will remain.
  8. Anyone have experience with solar powered pond pumps? I need one for outdoor water feature and also for a backup for my pond. Reading many varying reviews so thought I’d ask here. Hope that ok...

    Baby aura blue tigers

    Very, very pretty! Are these your babies or did you buy them?
  10. Hi Shrimpers I set up a tank with black sand labeled for aquarium and reptile use. Bought from a LFS that sells shrimp. They say they use it in their shrimp tanks. The tank is cycled so I moved tank to it’s permanent place. After moving tank I added a magnetic glass cleaner. Low and behold some black substrate is now on the magnet. Clearly there is some iron in substrate. If I had not added the magnet I would not have had any idea. Do you think this is/will be a problem? Planning for Buce/ mosses. All water parameters are otherwise where I want them. Half of me says ignorance was bliss...but now I’m concerned. I called the fish store, told them this is for some rather uncommon shrimp and the owner told his employee that it’s on me what I choose to do.... what BS! But that can be for a rant of a different time. In Neo tanks that I have had well planted with some laterite mixed in substrate and it wasn’t an issue.... I may be answering my own question, but seeking some input from the forum. Thanks All

    Questions about one of my ghost shrimp

    Actually this whitish milky tail could be a bacterial infection. Anyone else like to chime in?...@Chappy

    Questions about one of my ghost shrimp

    When she is ready she will move her eggs to her swimmerets. My Amano,s do all the time in my plant tanks. No babies cause I don’t keep brackish tanks. Go to the archives as at least one shrimper has successfully raised Amano shrimp.

    Questions about one of my ghost shrimp

    Welcome BlakeWiles to the ShrimpSpot. the small circular cluster in the segment behind her head, is what shrimpers refer to as a saddle. It where the eggs are stored before fertilization. Like an ovary. So looks like you have a mature female. I have not kept ghost shrimp before but I think they require a brackish environment to hatch.

    AuraTi questions

    Really beautiful patterns JonRon. I have a hybrid black tiger/pinto tank that throws similar rusty red/brown patterns. I call these my root beers. Some have red/white tiger patterns while others black/white bands. The F2 and beyond get truly bright red. I’m starting to separate out the reds into their own tank. The blue babies end up extreme BKK to pinto patterns. I love the beautiful patterns that come out of this tank. Some of the f1 moms are not the prettiest as far as opacity, but they throw pretty babies. A couple of the red babies have bright red squiggly Lines on their heads. Can’t wait to see how your colony matures. Shrimp Rock!

    Sulawesi shrimp varieties!

    When do they arrive. Do I have time to cycle a tank?
