Great pics /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Did you raise the zoes in marine water? There are only a handful of accounts available on the internet documenting successful raising of these shrimp.

no, Bully. some saltwater and a mix of all possible foods.
a friend has raised just once about 1000 with three different algae species, couldn't repeat it. he has some different algae species now for the raising of saltwater shrimps, seahorse species he's bringing up for a zoo and others. the actual mix didn't work on a new c. multidentata generation. but we are working on it

Best of luck with the next attempt /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Here's an account of someone that managed to get over 100 fry to survive, although he purchased in his phytoplankton.

Scroll down to post 19 which is where he makes his second attempt /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

If I had the space, resources and a willing wife /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" /> I would attempt to raise fan-filter shrimp Atyopsis moluccensis, which I believe represents a similar challenge to that of C. multidentata. My female berries up after each moult but, I'm not sure for how much longer, they are seemingly at adult size now and don't moult as often as they once did.

Lovely photos as ever Charles. Have you tried any of the species from Sulawesi that were all the rage not too long ago?

Gareth the link you posted is to an old article on goldfish. /huh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":huh:" border="0" alt="huh.gif" />

Cake or death?

Hmmm? Maybe not as relevant as I would have hoped /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />

I'm using Firefox 4 Beta 2, it has some issues with the "Awesome bar".

Here's the correct link.....hopefully /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />
