Any freshwater shrimp breeders in our club?

Recommended Posts

Well I survived my moving, that was not awesome. NEVER MOVING A REEF TANK AGAIN! Big thanks to everyone who helped, especially when it got stressful.

 

Since the move I am trying to reestablish my freshwater shrimp tanks, and lost some strains but others are fine. I was wondering if anyone in our club has Neocaridina species they are breeding and want to sell or trade for coral or other shrimp, and curious to hear if any neo breeders have experimented with crossing snowball shrimp with more colorful varieties. Very tempted to throw a snowball female with a carbon rili male as i suspect genetically the rili trait is dominant, perhaps incomplete dominant, but I think the snowball trait is also incompete dominant so I might get a blotchy ugly mess... or I could get carbon rilis. I wouldn't cross a cherry with a yellow or blue, just curious how these all white/colorless individuals do with other morphs.

 

I lost my female blue dream and carbon rili shrimp and all my regular reds, so looking for bloody mary reds and carbon rilis, have plenty of snowballs, frags, and can trade plain old greenbacks.

 

So... who's breeding shrimp locally?

Kate... of those 9 Opae ula you gave me a few years ago, I must have over 60 now. I have given some away! (not true freshwater though)

I dont think he does much neos though. Ive got a few neons kicking around. I might have some carbon rilis to part with soon.

 

That's right. I have tons of Caridina, but almost no Neocaridina. No Bloody Mary, Blue Dream, or Rilis.

Haha, I had the opposite results with breeders. I won't order from Alphapro again, though I did get my snowballs from him, the ones that survived his disastrous shipping did well. Shrimpusa was great in communication, packaging, speed, accuracy of description, size of animals sent and they threw in a couple extra. 

 

It's too cold to ship I think and I lost my blues, reds and blue rilis in my move, so wondering if anyone local has any to sell or trade? I only have the neon yellows and snowballs right now and the yellows are just recovering from the move so I can't trade them yet.

There was a guy in battle ground that was breeding several different varieties. Search for "the shrimp rack" on Facebook. I'm not positive he's still in business, but it's worth a look.
