Shrimple minded Posted October 25, 2015 Report Share Posted October 25, 2015 My shrimp tank is in my office, which has some (but not much) lighting on approximately 8am-1am. My tank lights run from 2pm-10pm. Do shrimp need periods of complete darkness to breed well, or can they molt & berry in the daytime? I'm just wondering if my own poor sleep habits are having an effect on the rate at which my females are berrying. My shrimp are molting just fine, but I can't say I've every seen it take place with my own eyes. I'm not 100% sure, but I think my one berry to date occurred on a weekend where I was out of town, meaning the only light hitting the tank was the 2pm-10pm photoperiod. Thoughts?
