I believe they go through a larval stage where it's dang near impossible to see. But look on your plants and decorations over the next couple days. I literally close one eye. You will see like maybe 2cm miniature ghost shrimp. I was eyeballing my plants in the tank when I noticed them
Look for them moving there antenna. It catches the eye
Folks on here say there hard but honestly I don't do anything special I've found them in two of my tanks this month
It would just be cool if one or two make it
I'm not "set up" for breeding, but if she doesnt get to know any of her babies, I'm just going to go get her a few "friends" anyhow
I only see her when the "moonlight" setting is on, and i think she'd feel safer in numbers, like most critters
Shes out now making a pig of herself on the sinking shrimp pellets that i got for the plec and molly, is this cannibalism worrisome? Lol
I don't think so I've read where they eat old shed exoskeletons for calcium I suppose it's the same concept. I thought the ghost shrimp were cool so I got 10 for each tank. They didn't last so well with my piranhas I think there is 3 left with them. I doubt I'll find baby's in there lol. I have guppies mollies and mosquito fish fry. The shrimp do good with them all.
So far, in my tank, I have 4 diamonds (getting 4 or 5 more very soon, trying not to overload my bb colony while I'm slowly stocking this aquarium), 1 DG, 1 Molly, 1 abnp.
And they've all left her alone so far.
I'm hoping it remains harmonious! I really like her
