    Now then Richy,
    Shrimp are the new hoodies on the steet so I’d be putting my bristles in a seperate tank LoL .
    I flipped the Cherry straight into a Cherry tank , hope your Orange are as proliferate as the greens (and the Cherries ).
    All ther best bud,

    i’ve got no berried up at the mo, but they are all doing very well. i’m still not sure what species they are so i’m waiting to see what happens when i do get a berried female.
    i picked up some neocaridina palmata today from maidenhead aquatics near York (going to a show).
    they are a superb looking shrimp and a few are berried.i’ll start a new thread when i get some pic.
    glad you moved the cherries John as i have a feeling the orange are just another colour form of he cherry.

    This tank was origionally setup for the BN’s but when it went pear shaped I got the yellow shrimps instead and a couple of weeks later the Bn’s delivered grrrrrr /sad.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:(” border=”0″ alt=”sad.gif” /> I think if I can get the extra info i’m looking for, for bamboo shrimps then they’ll have higher priority than these for now /wink.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”;)” border=”0″ alt=”wink.gif” /> They are the same species as red cherries I think so should be the same for breeding in theory

    I’m still unsure myself but i’m a relitive noob to alot of shrimps from the norm of bee’s, cherry’s, crystal reds/blacks, amano’s etc Some of them could of been interbred somewhere along the line even before the wholsalers got them or shop? Wholesaler sold them as dwarf orange shimp but I think otherwise, they’re not like Matt’s photo.

    Boyneburn, yes they look very similar but still unsure right now

    setting a tank up to move these shrimps to their own. I was going to use white sand then realised I’d struggle to see any babies. Decided to use normal sand but what you do, use normal sand or leave it bare bottom??
    The water and filter is ready to go in anytime within next 48 hours as i’m due a waterchange on the tank the filter has been maturing on.
    BB or normal sand?

    I honestly don’t think it’ll make a lot of difference provided there’s plenty of food available mate.

    putting it on hold for a few days, done water change tonight, got carried away and squished my ext filter media in the water for the tank /mad.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:mad:” border=”0″ alt=”mad.gif” />
    It will house yellows and red crystals /biggrin.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:D” border=”0″ alt=”biggrin.gif” />
    going with the natural sand btw

    as these shrimps have been developing I’ve noticed 1 of them looks totally different, more like a Neocaridina sp. orange shrimp max size 3cm. I’ll pop some pics on tomorrow night to show the difference between them. It’s more of a peachy orange than a definate bright orange. I’m not sure if it’s came from the 1st or 2nd batch I bought. If it is what I think it is then I think I best move it out so I don’t mix the 2 types in breeding if it’s possible, pressumably so.

    Hi mate, as I said, they tiny, smaller than a pin head but I can still see alot of them scooting about. Pointless even trying to photograpgh them as the camera wont pic them up /wink.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”;)” border=”0″ alt=”wink.gif” />
    Have the webcam ready to try and get a snapshot of the peachy/orange shrimp if it comes near aswell /laugh.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:lol:” border=”0″ alt=”laugh.gif” />
