Common names, bamboo fan shrimp, wood shrimp and many more.
I've noticed 1 of mine is berried up and I was wondering if anyone here knows or knows of some articles about breeding them. I know it's supposed to be very hard and rarley succesful in the home aquaria.
I know how to keep Atyopsis moluccensis but I guess the main questions are
What salinity should I aim for, how fast should it be raised and decreased and over what sort of time period?
Anyone know? /unsure.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":unsure:" border="0" alt="unsure.gif" />
Cheers in advance /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

wow, lets hope they survive.
to be honest, i know nothing of these shrimps.
best thing i can suggest and i'm pretty sure you have already done so, is to do a google search.
i'd be interested to see what you find out. good luck with them.

Sorry Richy, no idea either. Do the larvae require a marine stage then?

Edit - cool pic you can really see the "berries" clearly!

Cake or death?

thanks for the replies, yes the larvae requires some kind of brackish/marine setup but as to what strength I'm not sure of.
Keith, I can't see any surviving unless I setup a special system to try it out.
I'm wondering if it's a similar process as with Amano shrimps? Not that I've tried them either btw.
I only asked as I've never notice the females berried up before.

Setup scenario;
Tank with pebbled base
Filtration, either internal/external mainly fine-med sponges and NO floss. Cover the intake with matting/fine sponge in the hope the young don't get sucked in. Have a spraybar low/mid facing along the length of the tank for stream effect like a riverbed and a lump of wood in?
Food, apart from the natural water column I also have frozen cyclops and frozen DT's oyster eggs which I used for my "seafan/gorgonian" marine setup /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
If I can get the info I need I may give it a go and do a thread for others to try out /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
