The Amano shrimp are now carrying eggs! I am not sure if the live food
conditioned them into breeding or what. I also set a sort of 'feeding
platform' in the tank because all the plants were just getting too unruly.
It's just a piece of slate, from my roof actually, laid on the gravel. I
drop pellet food on it so I can observe the shrimp and fish eating and not
so much gets lost in the plants. This has worked great and the shrimp get
fed more. I think this is both because I feed them more (I like watching
I also recently started holding pellet food in tweezers and the shrimp will
swim to my hand and eat from the tweezers.
I am pretty optimistic about the chances for a successful brood. We're
working on our fourth generation of in tank raised ghost shrimp.
This is in a community tank with fish and snails!
