  1. Maybe I am over thinking this... but I did not expect this. I have 2 berried amano shrimp in my 20 gallon long blackwater community tank. I keep amanos in other tanks, but this is the first time having berried ladies. I have done some research and understand the requirements/difficulty of raising them and I am not sure if I want to take it on. I am curious about the larvae hatching, surviving in freshwater for up to 5-8 days, and the impact on water quality. The stock in the tank includes 4 sparkling gourami, 10 sundadanio axelrodi, 15 boraras merah/brigittae and 12 diamond head neon tetra. These guys are all hunters and enjoy a variety of live foods. I know they will eat the larvae, but there could be thousands of them. Water quality is my main concern as this tank has really hit its sweet spot and is running like a dream. If I see them as a food source, do I do anything beyond normal tank maintenance and monitoring water parameters when the hatch happens? OR Should I take the leap and try to raise them? Anyone have success?
  2. I separated my berried Amano shrimp to her own 1 gallon tank to see if I could capture/raise baby amanos. She has started releasing them and every hour I have a dozen or so more babies swimming around. what next? Brackish to Salt and back to Fresh looking for a thread for this topic…
  3. My amano shrimp females are berried regularly and have always wondered what it would be like to try to grow up the young. I know that it is quite complicated (involving saltwater, etc). Has anyone had any experiences they would like to share?
  4. I'm not sure this is the best forum for this question. I couldn't find info online and what I did find is counter to what I'm seeing so I thought I would ask. How long to amanos stay berried? After their last molt two of my amanos are heavy with eggs...can hardly swim. They are both quite large almost 2" nose to tailfin. What I read online says they only hold their eggs for 4-5 days, but both have been carrying them for over a week. pushing 2 weeks. Since they aren't in a brackish water will they not release and just reabsorb the eggs or what's going to happen? Should I add a weco wonder shell after this to help them recoup lost resources? I obviously realize that amanos will not successfully breed without some super complicated brackish/salt water setup. I'm just curious if I just need to wait this out of if I need to address it somehow or expect that these shrimp will not be long for this world.
  5. Is my Amano shrimp pregnant? If she is, what am I expecting? 100s of babies? Lol
  6. Okay I have read that amano shrimp need brackish water to hatch their eggs and for the zoes to survive. But I know I do not have brackish water and I have a extra shrimp baby shrimp that appeared. I assume it can happen from time to time because it did. Has anyone else experienced this?
