    I am sorry, been busy with work and attempting to rebuild my cray breeding.

    I actually want to ask if you have had this tank running for 3 years? I can understand English may not be your first...

    There is a large possiblilty that the massive die-off of your diatoms (brown algae) caused your Ph to plummet through decay. Try to keep your TDS below 200 as well, CRS generally enjoy 0-1Kh, GH...

    This particular shrimp is beautifully patterned. A colony of these would be.. just incredible. Is this one still an F1 from the Snow White and Blue Tiger varant?

    Do full water change before you starting throwing your KH readings through the roof. Most higher end shrimp that everyone keeps is not going to be able to tolerate a Kh 1-2+ You may have to do a few...

    Every colony can vary to some degrees, but I would say drop the Ph to 6.2-6.4, and bump up GH to around 5-6. The general consensus likes to see around 150 TDS and temps from 68-70F

    It has a lot to do with past genes and what is recessive/dominant moreso of what you physically see in each shrimp. You could breed 2 SSS+ and get a C grade shrimp.

    I would hope you are taking a...

    Substrate is going to be better to have, even if you only have a very thin layer at best. They cannot grip glass/acrylic for anything, and it would be like throwing you in a box of ice and having...

    If you have the room (and the time) you can do this:

    Continue breeding the CRS colony you have. Have 2-3 more small dedicated tanks cycled for cull tanks. When you see a non-CRS pop upin your...

    You pretty much answered your own question when "almost PRL" was identified. True PRL are exactly that: they always breed true. If they are not PRL there is always a chance for a Bee anomaly to...

    Well, if you are using Prime it is also negating heavy metals such as copper before it goes in. Copper poisoning has been shown to cause a "white death" on other forums, so there is a possibility...

    From what I have experienced your TDS is too low for RCS variants. I had issues until I brought my TDS up to above 180. Yours cannot be much more than 60-70 with no Kh and only 6-ish Gh. You do...

    PFR are in fact just cherry shrimp with opaque hues.

    If you mix them with cherries, you will be watering down the gene pool over time, ruining both lines without an established breeding/culling...

    You will get anomalies from time to time with Neos, as that is what the Rili is in the first place. They are part of the normal process of selective breeding that is coming out from time to time. ...
