From What I see in the video they looks good
Thanks! I believe the one that passed may have been the one with the scarutellia as you suggested. The 5 remaining look like they day they came home aside from the racing stripes. I'm not positive what happened but it was turning cloudy but the time I picked it up so it was for sure gone. On another note there is a fresh molt as of today I found about an hour ago after work and one of the biggest shrimplets is almost the size of a grain of rice.From What I see in the video they looks good
Just got home and found another molt!Moults are always good! I find when my shrimp are moulting they usually do well I'm a new shrimp keeper, so I'm still learning a lot as I go along.
You got your shrimplets were born exactly 6 days before mine! Here, I've attached a photo of one of them at 9 days old (they are about 5mm big and already pretty red for a newborn)
I'm not suspecting the same disease from before. The first shrimp that died looked the same so I'm also saying failed molt.I'm just speculating here but that doesn't look like the disease you thought it was. I'm guessing by the legs position and the change in colour of the torso only it's a failed moult?
richie.p what do you think? I don't know much about shrimp but I'm trying to learn..
They are still the first batch. When I took out the filter I think last weekend there were 5 or 6 babies hiding behind it but I put the filter in the same bucket I drained the water into and looked very carefully, it did not appear any came out with it. I have seen an older shrimplet consistently this week but that's the only one, I haven't seen any others. I use a pellet food I can't remember the name of but it's the same kind the guy who tends the shrimp feeds the ones at the stores. I'm actually preparing zucchinI now as well.Your right there Mary765 it is a failed moult you can see the split in the reflection on the first photo. Theres nothing wrong with the perameters they check out fine And it still seems to be the first shrimp you put in, no young have died have they? What are you feeding? Do you know how old they are? Did you do the transition to RO water to quick this would also account for it

I hope so. Every time I offer food they hardly touch it. They do like the omnivore pellets but they never finish one. I'm glad to see a baby pop up though!Don't give up on zucchinI you need to.tzke the seeds out and cook for 5 minutes in boiling water, try again in a few days they need to get used to new food, plus if they don't eaten it is a sign there's plenty in the tank,
I will do that, thanks! Do you find you have better luck with other veggies? I just use zucchinI because my other shrimp eat it but I certainly don't mind trying something else, I think you suggested broccolI stems.If they only take part of the pellet and say you feed every day change that to every other day so they may eat more of it if not all, then in place of the pellet try zucchinI once a week if the refuse it take it out and don't feed any food for 2 days then try again, that normally dose the trick

Awesome, thanks for the tips! I will try one of those by the end of the weekend.Cook the broccolI as normal take the stem cut it in half lengthwise and drop it in, if they are still feeding on it after 2hrs leave it in until no more interest. You can also put spinach in boiling water for 40 seconds then carefully push onto a stick like in my avatar you will probably have to put some led on the stick to hold it down, or try pushing it to the bottom and see if it stays there, you can also try mushroom not cooked but needs to be pushed onto the stick then cut carefully so it don't fall into bits as it floats, i'v attached photo of mushrooms to give you the idea
Babies are almost invisible to the naked eye so be patient when you do start seeing them things get easier, young will also hide for a week or so before venturing out, be very careful with water changes and check your bucket
You must have had another berried as they won't hatch in a week the earliest I've read about was 18 days and the young you seen I'd say were from an earlier hatch maybe a week or so. I think there's more going on in your tank than you resliseFigured it was time for an update! In total I have 3 adult shrimp and 2 children. About 2-3 weeks ago one of them berried to my surprise thinking everyone was either male or female and they hatched within a week. I was able to count 26 shrimplets in total just on the glass walls of the tank. About 1 week ago I noticed another appeared to be berried and sure enough this weekend I was counting a new group of babies. It's difficult to tell at this time how many there are now in total between the 2 batches but I'm thinking upwards of 30-40. Stoked to see this happen but I'm not sure what the future holds for my newly crowded tank haha time to watch them grow.. Will post pictures later. Perhaps a video.
Thank you! It is a little difficult to clean the tiny nooks and spaces but it's worth it when alls said and done and I can watch and enjoy. Unfortunately I don't think it will be big enough at this rate, I'll either have to upgrade or get a new tank soon! HahaThat's a lovely tank you've done there lots of cover and it looks nice and mature
Hey I missed it at first too, and while looking in person! But I'm pretty sure..It does look to me like she is berried, but I'm a novice, so I'm still learning.
I missed the babies! Must go back to look....
Easiest way to spot them is by the tiny black spots of their eyes. Or if you watch the video you can see their little legs moving ever so slightly. They are almost invisible.I'm still missing them!
Your right she is berried it makes it a little more difficult for some to spot because of her deep red colour, if you look carefully there are quite a few young in there a lot still very clear and easy to miss, once you get your eye in you'll see a lot moreIt does look to me like she is berried, but I'm a novice, so I'm still learning.

A few MONTHS?!I told you there was more going on in that tank than you realise, Ohio Mark I don't think you can miss these, they are a few months old, it's nice to see
Thank you! It has been a very exciting experience.James Turner
