Do older Cherries survive shipping and a new aquarium?
I have some adult giant girls I need to get rid of. Will they die if I ship them and they have to acclimate to a new environment? Same question for the boys, but I really need to get rid of some breeders. Way too many shrimp.
It's my understanding that young shrimp are less likely to have problems with shipping and acclimating to a new situation, but it's certainly possible for adult shrimp to survive the process.
I'll tag richiep to maybe get his thoughts.
Generally older shrimp don't travel as good as young ones, it depends how strong they are and if they can also take acclimation as some don't like that either,
They don't all die they never do
Edit JettsPapa you posted that exact the same time as me
My girls are very strong and huge, since they have not been breeding for 6 months.
They put up with all kinds of issues with their water, because I have to keep them in a small tank to keep them separate. I'd have 2000 shrimp, by now if I hadn't and I'm not exaggerating.
I don't kill my culls and I don't have fish.
So maybe most of these gals can make it.
Most of my culls are closer related to my original oranges, which are tough little buggers compared to my dainty blue diamonds.
I can well believe how many shrimp you could have I've only got to look at my tanks since lockdown !boom! everywhere
Try sending some old girls and put a few extra in for losses, you never know it might just get them going sgain
