exup Posted November 28, 2022 Report Share Posted November 28, 2022 Hi this is the first time asking advice on a shrimp forum .any help would be greatly received. Iv got a 4 foot 120 litre tank with mixed caradena shrimp prl 'galaxy fish bone' blue bolt 'pintos' shadow pandas etc the tank has bean running for about 7 months its quite heavly planted with moss anubis and a few stem plants .The substrate is esta shrimp5.5 . I started off with 30 shrimp and thay have bread quite well iv now got approx 80 /90 shrimp .i have to run a heater as my shrimp room is not heated and as the temp out side started to drop about beginning of November my shrimp have completely stopped breading. Despite my tank temp being a stable 22c all my water parameters are spot on .iv only had 2 shrimp die in the seven months iv had them . Iv understand caradena shrimp can stop breeding in the winter time .but does this mean the females stop molting in the winter. All my females that bread several times back in the summer are all looking happy eating active etc jest not getting berryed the males are not darting around looking for them any more so i take it the females are not molting during the winter iv tryied upping the temp a few degrees to make them think its spring time and my water change schedule has olways bean on point but all to no avail . I dont mind waiting a few months till the spring to see if thay start to bread again im jest worried there is sumething wrong im not seeing. Any one on here had a similar problem .sorry for the long post 😬 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
