  1. They're like tangerine tigers or a colour morph of it and can survive and thrive in a while range of water parametrrs. The best is to ask the breeder yoyre ordering and try to match approx. Their parameters Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  2. Glad to hear you've got some alive caridinal and they're doing well. You've written quite a bit I'll have to reread once my kids are asleep. But some thoughts. What was the temp in your and the shippers area during the shipping times? It could be warm enough that a heat pack wasnt required. Just some random theories based on what I know about these shrimps. But I could be wrong. Interesting thing about shrimps is if you post a question you'll probably get 10 different responses and they all work for them Side note , tons of berried sulawesi shrimps for me.

  3. Wish you the best of luck on your hunt. On the note found some berried caridinal and yellow cheek babies in my aquariums Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  4. That's great to hear. I can feel your frustration through the first post. The flip side is it could have been on the mail truck for a long time and the bag could have over heated. That's another way of looking at it. And you're familar once theres one dead shrimp thr water goes bad and could have a spiral effect on the rest of them. Either way, anyone I've talked to who tried to ship them wouldn't do it again. Its quite risky and a sensitive shrimp esp to temp. It's happened to me I ordered 1000 there was a delay in the airport and they opened the bags. All 1000 dead. I almost cried. For me I only sell to local people who pick up. But that's just me. Wish you more success next shipment, either way it sucks when the buyer doesnt reply.promotly cause we spend quite a bit of money on shrimps in general and would love a quick and prompt response when it goes bad. Have a great evening On the other hand I love breeding these guys and just set up a 50g rock scape for sulawesi. Heres a photo Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  5. Sorry to hear about your loss as its painful to see. I currently breed 6 types of sulawesi and I'll chime in a bit. Your comments are correct for neos and caridina where cooler water without heat packs or ice packs work best. But for sulawesi shrimps they dont ship well and they need the constant heat above 82 f to be comfortable. So I'd guess that he should have added the heat pack. Or some of my friends who ship across the country dont ship unless the temp is of a certain degree. With that said they're really painful to ship with lots of doa and it's better if you can to buy locally. Hope your next experience will be better with them I'll also give you another example of wild caught ones shipped from indonesia direct 36 hours I ordered 150 only 90 came alive and only 30 survived the critical 3 week mark.

  6. thx. not 100% too sure. they really don't ship well. I'd say out of 100 ordered 60 made it and about 30 left after a week. but great news. after 4 weeks they're berried and babies everywhere. as usual the key is the 1st generation shrimpfever does carry and ship them and they're in the east Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk

  9. Hi there, Just checking in to see if anyone keeps and breeds Sulawesi shrimps? I’ve kept them and bred them on and off since 2007 and just made a short video of my latest successful shipment. All doing well after 1st wc and eating 3 types of my foods. Here’s the link to the video: let me know what you think of the video And I hope to plan to make a 10 part video series on setting up, keeping, breeding and caring for them Happy fathers day everyone And have a great day Ray Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk
  10. great topic for discussion. i notice my neos, tangerine tigers, oebt, sulawesi breed all year. my taiwan bee, pintos i notice less berried during the winter months. ive always wonder if it was the atmospheric pressure similar to wet and dry seasons for some apistos Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk
