Diana Posted July 3, 2016 Report Share Posted July 3, 2016 Do OEBT shrimp grow slowly? I have had a few small ones under a half an inch since the end of May and they do not seem to grow bigger. Could I be doing something wrong... My tank is heavily planted so I only tend to see one or two at a time, I keep them with several Blue Rili adults and a bunch of Blue Rili babies, but then the oddest thing...today I saw some very small babies and when I looked with a magnifying glass it seems that their eyes are orange. Is it possible for OEBT shrimp to breed when they are still under and inch in size, I never saw one berried, but the new fry really do seem to have orange eyes. Also, I have started a new 9 gallon tank and was hoping to add OEBTs to it, as well, after it has cycled. I have used ADA Amazonia soil and have been reading on some threads, which state that this is not a good substrate for tigers. Is this true? So, my questions are: Why might my tigers not be growing? Even though they are still small, could they have bred? Is ADA soil bad for keeping OEBTs? Current Parameters in the cycled 4 gallon tank: TDS 160 - 195 Ammonia 0 Nitrate 0 Nitrite 0 GH 8 KH 3-4 Four gallon with fluval shrimp stratum, Vpier 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
