  1. Hello everyone, My Mamma shrimp jumped out last night and got stuck on the lip of the tank somehow. I found her this morning all dried out, but her eggs were still moist. I got a glass and filled it with the aquarium water, and separated the eggs from her body. The eggs are now in the glass. Any tips on how to keep them alive? Should I have them inside the tank in a breeder box, maybe, so they still have the heater and whatnot? I've never had eggs hatch before, so I'm completely clueless here. I just don't want to watch her babies die because their Mom was dumb. Thanks in advance, everyone.

  3. I currently have 3 Red Cherry Shrimp, sadly just lost one whom I suspect might have been the only male, and though we've had them for many months they have never bred. After losing the 4th RCS we went to pick up some new ones to expand the colony however we couldn't find any at two local stores so settled, for now and to kind of get the hang of breeding on slightly cheaper Shrimp, 4 ghost shrimp instead. It turned out that not only was one of the Shrimp very pregnant, the eggs were already on her tail, but a little small fry was also swimming around in the bag. We kept them separate from the main tank until we could get a floating breeding/isolation tank, but sadly the momma died from the stress and we didn't have any knowledge of how or even if the eggs could have been saved, however the fry is alive and doing good as far as we can tell growing in the breeding tank till she/he is big enough to not be dinner for other shrimp or fish in the tank. I took some pictures of my RCS and of the ghost when we first got them and am hoping people here can tell me what gender they might be so I can get a male or females if I don't have enough or any of one or the other. One of the RCS did not want it's photo taken so it's as good as I can get. He's the one hiding behind a bright green leaves on, of course, the bright red lite up volcano. He (or she) seems on the smaller side and the legs can look more speckled than solid red sometimes and it has a stripe along its back that looks like it's constantly about to molt off or something, very whitish dry looking. Hopefully that might help with identifying what it is... Thanks
  4. Hi, does anyone know the different patterns and the grading and how to look for the quality of Ghost variants? I have a source carrying orange ghost and the darker marked ghosts and I'd like to invest in a breeding pair but I'd like to make sure I know how to pick and choose the best before I invest. Here are some pictures.
  5. So, I recently was researching native decapods and came across this species of grass shrimp. It seems that they look almost identical to Palaemonetes paludosus, except for the red bands on the arms. They also reproduce in freshwater. They are prolific along the Mississippi River watershed. Just curious if anyone has ever kept these shrimp.
  6. Hi, I have a 1.8 gallon (cycled) tank, so basically a fishbowl with a filter. It has 9 water wisteria, three Marimo balls and some rocks/ a cave. I have one ghost shrimp, one cherry shrimp, and one Malaya/rainbow shrimp. I have a fantasy about breeding Red cherry shrimp and possibly selling, but I don't know if it's possible in such a tiny tank. I just have a few questions about that: 1. How many shrimp do you think I could keep in this little tank? 2. Would I have to put a sponge over the filter intake? 3. Do you think that non-local stores like Petsmart or Petco would buy the shrimp? Thanks if you can answer any of these!
  7. Thanks for helping, in advance. I have a 1.5 gallon that has a filter and air pump. Currently I have 1 ghost shrimp and 1 RCS. How many shrimp can I keep in this tank? I don't want them to get territorial. My ghost shrimp and cherry get along absolutely fine. I have 8 Water wisteria and 3 Marimo algae balls, as well as a few rocks for exploring and cleaning.
