Having come back to aquatics after a long break I thought I missed the shrimp boom a few years back. They are fascinating creatures to observe, almost more fun to watch than fish at times.

I only have cherries atm but plan on having CRS, Snowballs, Tigers, Blue pearls and OEBT's when I get my fish house project off the ground. There will be some tanks dedicated to shrimp.

Some nice looking shrimp there PoF. Give them a glass of wine, play some Barry White then send some shrimplets my way haha.

They are my favourite and got best accommodation as well. :D
Although I do love them all. Was big affair to spend so much money for shrimp in one go but so far the losses been less than I expected. I have lost all blue bees. Also almost all tigers and red tigers. Both red and tigers were in to tanks that had severe BBa outbreak and once I have moved the ones that survived all was good. Do not know for sure if that is related to bba.
Cheers.
I now got quite a lot berried blue pearls, seen one berried yellow, 2 berried ss crystal reds, one red tiger and one remaining blue bee. Have not seen blue bee for a while now though.
Fingers crossed. :thumbup:

Mate, I think I mentioned this the other night, but the blue bees are weirdly shy shrimp. I had 4 originally and had assumed I lost all of them (hadn't seen one in 2 months). The other night saw one at the back of the tank looking healthy and happy. Then disappeared. Probably won't see another for a couple more months.

Ed's blue are not shy at all they have been all around substrate. I think you need more than 4 to make them feel secure.

Are they so shy that fall dead and, smell turn red do not move and lie on the side. Just pretending :shifty:
Sorry, a bit of black humour.
The tank was quite bare so i could see well what was happening. From 20 only 2 survived, one male supposedly and one berried female. Hope female is still around somewhere. They have a lot of cherry company though.
