  1. Those look to be lower grade blue dreams. High grades would not be speckled like that. I would leave both berried ones alone and let them release their shrimplets in their tank. It is likely that some of the offspring will be solid blue.
  2. Hello. It looks like you are using tap water AND shrimp remineralizer. What is the TDS of your tap water before and after you remineralize it? Most of the shrimp you are keeping are normally kept using RO or distilled water as a base before adding minerals. Almost everything else you are doing looks like it shouldn't cause a problem.
  3. If your tank only has blue bolts in it, I would assume they are mischlings that happen to look like blue bolts. Pure blue bolts will not throw all those other phenotypes.
  4. I found that to be common. Tiger shrimp are more aggressive and will usually outcompete the neos for food. I have tried 3 mixed tanks and the Caridina shrimp always did better than the neocaridinas.
  5. I would think the only issue could be too many tannins. Otherwise you are probably fine.
  6. I would say that you won't be able to successfully keep blue bolts or any Taiwan bee shrimp in tap water. GH8 is pretty high for starters. Normal range is 4-6 and they would likely have trouble molting. Also GH, KH, and TDS are only general parameters and they are made up of many elements. The shrimp need proper amounts of minerals and other compounds that may or may not be present in your water. In my opinion, the only good way to keep them is RO and remineralizer formulated for shrimp. To illustrate my point, you can probably mix table salt, baking soda and Epsom salt to get water with GH4, KH1, TDS 120 but it wouldn't be suitable for shrimp because it doesn't contain much of anything beneficial to them.
  7. How often do you do water changes? What remineralizer do you use?
  8. Your substrate is exhausted and needs to be replaced. Fluval stratum doesn't last much over a year under normal conditions and it's buffering capacity was reduced by adding the seiryu stone.
  9. My OEBT parameters are GH6, KH2, TDS200 and ph7.4. I would think they would do just fine in your parameters. I will have to see how many I have available, but I should be able to do 6 for $75 shipped.
  10. How many are you looking for? I have a few striped OEBT available. They are in neocaridina parameters.

    I had a quick look last night and I might have 5 or so of them that are light blue with dark blue stripes like the picture below: My apologies for the poor quality on the second pic. I didn't have much time. I would do $10 each plus shipping.

    How many are you looking for? I have a few striped juvies from my OERBT colony that I could make available. They are currently in neocaridina parameters. Mine are actually from Danny (wyzazz)
  13. Hey Nick! Good to see you moved over here as well. Thanks again for the moss trade earlier this year.
  14. It's going to be interesting figuring out who is who on here with everyone now having nicknames. Glad to have another option though!
