    I don't have that kind of temperature by choice. Even with the air condition switch on 8 to 10 hours a day, the aquarium don't cool down, I have got a big lounge....

    Good to ear that. I was a bit worry peoples take me for a liar. After all breeding temp 23C, 25C they should stop to breed...
    Just wanted to share.
    If you want to re dove some, I will be happy to buy some from you, so I can bring new "blood" to mine. Let me know.

    Cherry shrimp actually have a very broad range of temperatures at which they are happy and will breed. The guide is usually 65-85, but as you have found they are happy at higher temperatures than this as well. In fact most Neocaridina species will live happily at higher temperatures, I keep all of my shrimp tanks at 27 degrees C, as lower than this and breeding slows.
