  1. On to another generation F4 larvae. They’re about a week old. :
  2. A number of them turn into shrimplets.
  3. Read the salinity with a hydrometer or refractometer. Added some newly hatch larvae in the tank and vids an unfortunates larvae got snatched and eaten alive by a older larvae.
  4. Added a grow light on 24/7 to keep the water green and feeds the larvae phytoplankton a few times a week. Another videoclip with a larvae swimming forward and about to morph into little shrimp.
  5. So continues on breeding F3.
  6. The count still not high enough to work on F4 next year.
  7. Have to remove saltwater hair algae from the larvae rearing tank, Larvae will not feedings on hair algae, certainly Amano Shrimplets will.
  8. Testing the larvae vigor by way of a spot light high above the tank bottom at four inches and see how they swim to the light, so far they are in good shape. Can’t kept them in mid water and the go hunger as over filter the water filter all the phytoplankton floating in the water. Turn off the lights some of the time and they will settle on the tank surface to get their nourishment.
  9. RO to adjust the salinity. Weekly 10 to 15% water change to keep ammonia under control.
  10. The tank is seeded with live Nanochloropsus (Japanese Chlorella) phytoplankton. Larvae feeding on algae in the tank and I move the spot light around different parts of the tank, so they won’t pick clear on one area. Light on most of the time, sometimes off. Very careful not over feed them.
  11. When the berried shrimp eggs turn from Dark color to grayish , i put the berried shrimp in a small container with some moss. Change one third of the water with a bit colder dechlorinated tap water every other days. Colder water seems to trigger the shrimp to release the Larvae when the berried shrimp ready.Work for me. Catching the last few larvae, shots them on the sieve and transfer them to the brackish water.
  12. Yeah, F3 Amano shrimp on their way. Some time between a week to 10 days.
  13. After several failed start and about to quit breeding them, finally found out that my tap water is a lot softer than use to by about 5GH. After up the GH to the tap water and now they looking good so far.
  14. Just mixed the brackish water Amano shrimp in the opal ula tank. Brackish water grown Amano shrimp is 9 months to a year old at .75 inch and I think that all they going to grow.
  15. Finally found the optimal salinity for rearing F3 Amano Shrimp Larvae. They’re at 1/2 gallon brackish water at 24 ppt. Not using any foam filter. Don’t have 24 hrs light on.
