Few more shots I took today how things stand, keep seeing just a single CRS shrimplet so not sure if its always the same one or if there are more in the tank, there are so many plants now that its hard to tell. I did see 4 at the same time once when they first appeared.









As always I had help:



Thanks for looking :)

Hey, Fantastic Fissidens carpet, the shrimps clearly love it! I've seen some of my CRSs with eggs but I've never seen a baby, would be awsome if you could get them breeding! Is it possible to get higher grade babies than the parents? As mine are low end.

Regards, Tom

Thanks Tom, the eggs will hatch and babies survive if temp is kept below 24ºC otherwise you will struggle. I am not sure about the grading of shrimplets but depends on their genetic structure I guess, if previous generations have been higher grades then maybe that can happen, but I am not sure about that. The shrimplets I have seen look grade A from grade S female and possible lower grade male.

It's looking as great as ever! What's that small leaved plant in the substrate?

This is a great Journal Shrimp King. ;)

Do you run CO2 on this tank Paulo? And was you going to split up the CRS with the cherries.

Mine are breeding like mad on there own, i think there's about 10 adults, and 20 juvenilles and probably around 40 tiny ones too. :D
