  1. I am a beginner when it comes to shrimp. I read a care guide by shrimp farm which states a tds of 150-250. My water is 300-350ppm. So, is this tds ok for shrimp? If I lower the tds, the kH will drop too low. Any suggestions would be great.
  2. 10 + 1 for $44.99 and $15 USPS Priority shipping. Home raised, disease free. I've been culling the colony for about 5 years. PM me if interested! -Sharon
  3. About a year ago I purchased around 20 Painted Sakura Cherrywood shrimp. Since that time I've begun to cull and breed for color. Two questions: 1) How often do you need to introduce genetic diversity into your colony? 2) I've found it difficult to find shrimp marketed as Painted Sakura for sale. Are there any concerns if I purchase Fire Reds or Bloody Marrys to breed with my Sakura? I've heard rumors that Bloody Mary's can throw off strange colors if bred with other grades. Anyone have any experiences like this? Thanks
  4. I'm trying to learn about Cherry shrimp. I sold some of my more red colored to them a while ago, and they want more. They keep asking and praising their color etc. I thought I would invest in some high grade and breed for them. But I have a couple questions. 1) Are all going to breed and fade and get that faded stripe on their backs eventually? I read somewhere that there are actually two types of cherries and depending on which you had they would show the faded stripe after a generation or two. 2) Actually that's my only ? Except for asking for recommendations on where to purchase the best breeding stock. But I figure maybe others would have more ?'s I haven't thought of yet.
