    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? /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />

    EDIT* adding photo of the shrimp

    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!

    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” />
