Just that your previous shot... really can't see any that's why I'm happy to see it now...hehe...

Yes, I believe that's possible when its stressed out. Saw the same happening to all the shrimps I bought (incl. crs)... heck even the otto I bought turned completely pale like ghost!  shocking.gif But all turned out well after some hours or the next day onwards. Nothing to worry about wink.gif
Yeah, not now but once they mature then there's the possibility. But since you're planning to set up another tank (envy envy) I'm sure you'll get a large colony soon enough. Congrats again!  thumbup.gif

Have 2ft tanks with cherry and malaya. Seems cherries never stopped breeding. Have about hundreds of shrimplets now with plenty cherry too...Cant wait to see my tank is full with red cherry.
Another 2ft tank is with Fire Red just around 20 with malaya. Plenty shrimplets also maybe around 30 or 40 of fire red and maybe few of blue and yellow. Hanging 2 breeding tank with 3 yellow with golden stripe and 3 blue velvet.
New tank most likely going to be the blue velvet.... rclxm9.gif icon_rolleyes.gif

Haha... bro... going into shrimps now too huh? Come come join the club! biggrin.gif

Yeah, like what cloveryen mentioned RCS would be any beginner's choice. I took the risk and dived in directly fire reds (still a hardy one but supposedly RCS is easier).

30++ or 300++ ? i once keep 500++ Malaya in an 50cm 57L tank, no problem at all. It depend on your filtration power and provide more o2 when
shrimp population is high, o2 not only for the shrimps but also for the beneficial bacteria in the filter to utilize, healthy and stronger BB to handle the increased bio-load.

Any alternatives that doesn't require an airpump?

They're too noisy (bubbly) and water splashes for the office environment.

Well.... one of us here would've misunderstand your meaning of '30++' bro... if you're referring to shrimp load you've had your replies. But if you're referring to temperature... then that might be a different thing altogether. But then again since you have plants I guess you won't let temperature go to that level?

Then again... I might've just misunderstood you... tongue.gif

Err... have more plants? biggrin.gif Or alternatively try to have more surface agitation?

I'm only having slight surface agitation from my outflow... but thus far no issues (I hope) on O2 in water... likely coz the plants are still doing a good photosynthesis (riccia especially).

EDIT: OK... posted reply too late as I was engaged in a call. Sifu has spoken.... laugh.gif
