  1. babies are more sensitive... Just measure your gh...
  2. I get a 5 gh with salty shrimp at 130ppm with ro water with tds 15-20ppm, but tanks slowly raise to 150ppm from food and low water changes. test your gh ... did you saw a molt problem?
  3. o Oh ok , yeap i keep also taibee - taiwans, and i do the mistake to make hybrids between crs -tangerine tigers and pinto taiwans. I have them in one tank, and i am waiting to get the population big to seperate them. Also that you says, from adding lines from another colony i dont thinks its change something. I start my crs from 20 shrimps 3-4 years ago, also cbs from 3 shrimps never mix with diferent blood.
  4. Yes there are plants in the tank, filtration is sponge filters. I know from nitrates... if i feed alot. I saw it , its expensive.. and i am from Greece. You can see the tank here at 1:07 and here when they breed
  5. I dont want to add more tanks for crs, i have now 2 tanks with them.. I dont think that you can keep the true breeding with grades.
  6. I am trying to find snowflakes in biger packet those companies sell 40gram.... Yes mulbery leaves, i feed them in summer now i dont have, this year i collect more. I sell the shrimps but not a lot of people here keep shrimp tanks. So how many shrimps can hold in a safe mode in a 80 liter tank? I have a lot of berried , mine start to breeding now there will be a problem in the future.
  7. So what are you feed and how ofter a tank with over population shrimps. I have a problem in one of my tank, i keep crs , tank is about 80liters and there must be 500-600 shrimps or more, and now i have berried females. One problem is with breeding the shrimps because female get lot of stress, i saw one time female was on the substrate and there must be around 30-40 males above her From stess the female can be eaten from other shrimps, because she not moved. And the second problem is that i cannot feed them a lot , because of polution the water, all the times are hungry. So how can i solve the above problems?
  8. A video that confirm that temp dont playes role... cbs tanks is room temp without heat, about 16-17,c crs is with a heater at 21-22c... Both tanks start in the same time of yeart breeding.. I take a video i catch them both tank male dancing. :)
  9. Some results... Shrimps start breeding in some tanks. I didnt change anything of my routines and nothing changes in lights and temps. The fisrt tank was tangerine tigers, there are an explosiong with female caring eggs. Then taiwan pinto crs and other caridina . I dont have any problem with neocaridina tanks. The weird is that crs and cbs shrimps start breeding in the same time. Crs is with 22c and cbs in room temp about 16c, also in another crs tank with room temp start the same period. So am i crazy , what parameter iam missing?

    shrimp Tanks

    Shrimp tanks update 4/2/19
  11. Hello there . Can you say how many hours of daylight your place have this period, and when your lights time on and off routine? Mine temp is higher than yours. Maybe something in light period ? Do you have a windows in you shrimp room? Aslo do you know your barometric pressure of the year, like i wrote it above? Crazy qusetions i know.
  12. I dont know if barometric pressure plays role but its play for some fish, and i read it lot in the forums, also in a paper for sea shrimps , culture in ponds , i read they measure for 6 months all the data , also have data for barometric pressure. Oxygen is beter in cold water than hot water that is true. Temps affect shrimp grow slower and leave more. Yes that i was thinking , temp fluctuation is more in summer . Maybe they dont like stable temp? haha 😀 If they dont breed in winter why to use heaters? I never loose a shrimp from cold water, i made a test in the previous year with crs. Now also have tanks without heater and temp goes 13-14c in the waters. Snowballs and neos breed in those temps not a lot but you can see pregrants srhimps. Plants still grow but slower. I made a small video to see activity in 14 c vs 22c . Srhimps looks fine . Cbs is without a heat, then crs tank have a heat to22c and the other tanks crs dont have a heat, and in this tank i saw pregrand , also in tanks without heaters had babies. Sorry for the quality of the video its from mine phone.
  13. I change my lights to 13 hours from 8 hours i had them I know about the plants how react to temp and lights. If we talk about heat at March April when they became to breed , temp dont play a role, its the same temp when you use heater.. I will try to make a comparison with day lights when they stop breed and when they breed. Your temp is fine with shrimps, my shrimp room , because i dont leave there goes to 13-14c ~ 55F I cant heat all the tanks, its 20 tanks , i use heaters to 10 tanks keeping temp 21-22c and sullawesi 26c.
