    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?

    Cinnamon sticks

    Thanks. I got organic cinnamon stocks boiled them about 15 minutes. The shrimp really seem to like them.

    Cinnamon sticks

    I wondered if maybe my leaves and cones were old and no longer having their antimicrobial effect

    Cinnamon sticks

    Hi all I had an issue in one tank a month or so ago with the death of some sub adults and first time berried tiger hybrids. They were eating and active then got slightly whitish bodies. I thought it was a molting issue until a berried one died. It was probably a bacterial infection. Did water changes/water testing with no real answer, as water parmeters were fine. I have lots of leaf litter in tank. I have not had any new deaths. I was reading that cinnamon sticks have antiviral/antibacterial properties and that the shrimp enjoy eating them. Anyone use them? I ordered more guava leaves. I also read that Glasgarten beta GLucan prevents “milky body” in shrimp.

    Welcome to TSS
  15. hi all I have a Micmol aqua air light on a 10 gallon tank. I am wondering what settings would be best. I have wave moss, mini moss, fissendens "fox", short and narrow java fern, and a red moss "callagossa becarri. The tank has been set up about 4 months. After it cycled I added 2 panda loaches until I decided which shrimp I wanted. Its quite bright on the factory settings and was great to cycle the tank with, but I think its too much light for the plants and it seems too be a bit much for the shrimp as they hide when it comes on. Any suggestions would be much appreciated Thanks
