Hi,

I just brought some Cherry shrimps and placed them in an cycled tank, after about couple of hours, I notice that there were lots of tiny white granular particles lying at the bottom of the tank. Can anyone enlighten me what's that? Thanks! :confused: :confused: :confused:

Hi....

The 'particulars' are white / off-white in color and the size about slightly less than 1 mm. Almost all are of the same shape and size. When I brought them back yesterday, I haven't been feeding them yet.... :o

Does those things move(alive?)
If did you dose beneficial bacteria (powder form?)

So far never experience so call white things before.
Only seem them on driftwoods.(fungus(white fluffy things))

Can help you better if you get show a picture or two.

Don't think they are alive.......not moving but the shape look like grain of rice, only much smaller, not fluffy infact quite smooth... Try to take pic this evening..... :wink:

Cherry shrimps are high order shrimps. They don't lay eggs. They gave birth to shrimplets not larvae.
Class 66, the particles at the bottom of your tank could be eggs. When pregnant females are stressed (for example when you put them in a new tank) they often get rid of all their eggs. These eggs won't release shrimplets, they will die :( .
