Hi, been a while since i posted much, sorry.
Ok, I now have 3 lots of yellow shrimplets, 1 set of snowball/pearl shrimplets (not really sure as they were rogues) and atleast 3 other sets of shrimplets, 1-2 sets might be blues, too early to say.
I also have atleast 3 blues full of berries, 1 pearl/snowball and min 2 more yellows berried up /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
CR's are doing sod all but it may be due to the temp as it's an unheated tank, the temp is approx 14C. If it's not the temp then G John gave me a bunch of dodgy ones /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />
How is everyone elses doing? How is the green shrimps and tigers doing keith?

all have settled in well mate. got loads of blue shrimplets and did see a yellow berried, but nothing from them yet and to much java moss to see what's going on.
at least two of the tigers are showing red stripes. so fingers crossed one is a female.
same with my CRS, nothing as yet, but we live in hope,lol

I popped up to see you a couple weeks ago Richy but you werent about . I've been quiet as not much has happend shrimp wise and I've been on holiday and Im expecting a litter of pups about 30th November so if any one says I'm looking fat thats the reason LoL
I've got about 8 CRS carring eggs at the min I've noticed specificaly as one of the shrimp was quite large that the clutches seem to be half the size as usual 10 to 15 eggs probably the temp. I've had a blue shrimp hatch young I hope ,carried its berries for ages it seemed like but havent seen young over the last 5 days since eggs vanished .Theres another blue with a full berry at pressent . I've had bee shrimp also finnish the egg carring time but cant find the young (loads of moss in the tank !) My yellows arnt doing anything yet and I'm after Swapping 10 CRS for 5 Greens if anyones got any LoL I would have been looking this weekend but I've got man flue and building a whelping box !
I lost 2 out of 5 Assassin snails ...can only think they were poorly/stressed when I put them in or/and a temp drop got them ! I've added another to that tank and 4 more to another tank.
Good to here how your shrimp are doing .
All the best,
