If you have ever wondered how the larva hatches...
It's hard to say, I'd think it's more dependent on each on how much they eat more so than a time thing. I just noticed some coloration and their bodies are a bit elongated.richie.p said:They are coming on great. How long dose it take from born to morphed?
Can't really tell, at this stage they don't really move around and just stay still and eat. I would think the survival rate might be another 20~30 like last batch. I think next batch I will clean out this tank and re-grow the algae. Too much of the green algae grew which isn't what I wanted. You want the brown diatom algae which is only growing on the top half of tank. I will reposition the lights so they are not so close and intense.richie.p said:That's brilliant like a how many have made it to that stage
Ahh I bought the Amanos to help with algae and just fell in love with them. Knowing the difficulty in breeding them is what sparked my interest in RCS. I had a Betta in a 1.6g that died and decided it would be a nice possibility but ended up feeling like it would be too small and cramped for what I'd like to see happen. Honestly I've grown to like shrimp just ever so slightly more than fish being that my main interest was initially Bettas which I would ultimately like to breed as well. Between the Shrimp and Bettas the hobby is quite consuming as it is.mach6 said:I had lost a lot of eggs from putting the females separately in containers, I am not sure how others keep them in there w/o filtration with the shrimp or the eggs not developing fungus. I had changed the water frequently but still lost many eggs from fungus developing on the eggs or on the shrimp itself. Once I used a filter, it helped maintained water quality to be able to hatch and collect.
I never got into the RCS, I had some chocolate or blueberry for a short while until they were eaten by my Amanos. Plus I consider them too small for me. I was looking to pick more shrimps like bamboo or if I can get the green lace shrimps.
