  1. Are you reading the box and trying to hit the same numbers? I don't have salty shrimp, but Dennerle doesn't list the numbers in "TDS", they list them in micro-Siemens. TDS is actually a bit of a mess, because there are a couple of different scales for TDS, which produce different numbers. The reason Dennerle uses micro-siemens is because that is a "non-calculated" value, so scale doesn't matter.
  2. Quick question: I see the raccoon and prince bee shrimp. First, trying to figure out if that prince bee is the "princess bee" paracaridina that was floating around earlier. Second, i've heard that raccoons are just a type of bee shrimp or a slightly different species? which one is yours?

      Long video was a oops! But since I can’t figure out how to delete it, what grade might this be? Thx

      You realize you sent me a personal message and that you didnt post this to the forum, right
      I just got on the website after a while and saw this

  3. Hi! 
    Cherry’s Need help!!!!

    The video below two new females with what I believe is the dreaded ellobiopsedea (sp).

    I have dipped three times in salt

    (1TBSP api salt /1c tank water)...

    1st dip - both in for 30 sec.

    2nd 8 hrs later another 30 sec.

    3rd 12hr later for 1 min.

    Honestly, I can’t tell any difference. Today (after reading till 3am and my eyes blood shot) all I could find was possibly Kordon malichite green and methylene blue to treat. 
    Found some today and shop guy recommend 1/2 dose.
     The bottle says normal dose -10 drops per 1 gallon.  I go for it! 
    Cherry’s are in 2.6gallon Fluval Spec for this treatment. I did full dose because I’m all in now and euthanizing is last option since they’ve survived this long, they are tough like me and I don’t quit easy!  


    I am super PO’d that this has happened. I have NEVER added new shrimp to my family until I read it’s good to keep (in) breeding balanced. What ever that means! So I got two (these two). Guy tells me he’s doing me a “solid” and gives me berrried females. Solid...my keester! 
    The green berries turned out to be this nasty stuff! So any help will be greatly and sincerely appreciated. 


  4. After some review, I think I identified this incorrectly It is Faxonius leptogonopodus
  5. Picture of a non-color morphed one in the same tank(so same parameters)
  6. So, I was recently collecting some crayfish during a fishing trip and came across an orange morph of this dwarf crayfish. The mena crayfish has a unique "leopard pattern" on the back. Which looks great in the orange color. It isn't the smallest dwarf, but it isn't huge. https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/ouachita/home/?cid=fsm9_039755 I will try to get a better picture, but it is currently hanging out in my neocaridina tank. Hiding under a log and any attempt to get it out causes a lot of debris to kick up. I tried to collect some others for future breeding purposes, but ma
  7. To be honest, I don't know which system decapoda use for sex. However, I posted that link because I wanted to quickly explain that while "binary sex chromosomes" are common, XX and XY are not. Also, some organisms(such as fish) don't use a binary system. Fish have 3 sex chromosomes! The other thing to note on neos is that males typically present less coloration, particularly when they are younger.

  9. I've seen raccoon tiger shrimp pop up a few times. People generally note that they won't interbreed https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7142168/#!po=14.7059 Is this the same species? Sent from my PH-1 using Tapatalk
  10. So, polygenic traits are more common. Neocaridinia are almost definitely polygenic CBS/CRS color doesnt seem to be polygenic. When you mix black/red shrimp, some will be black and some will be red. It seems to follow a single gene. I'm a little confused on tiger shrimp vs bee shrimp. Bee and tiger shrimp are the same species. Tiger shrimp are traditionally black, but they seem to use a different gene for black coloration. Because if you breed a black tiger with a red bee shrimp, you get crazy patterns. None of the offspring are red tigers. Sent from my PH-1 using Tapatalk
