    I am breeding Red Nosed Darwin Shrimps in FW and certainly not brackish water.

    The reason mine were wild caught in FW, Aust one of the reasons they breed in brackish water is, there is a massive amount of mulm where the fry can thrive on then they go back up to the FW.

    I have a large Canister and a UGF and most important of all I never clean the bottom of the tank for two reasons its a natural food for my Crypts and the Shrimp fry.

    My English is not perfect, How I understand, need have a large amount of residue on the bottom of the tank to succeed in reproduction..?
    This also goes for bamboo shrimp?

    Do not worry about your English I would not be able to read/speak your language any way.

    Yes that is correct all the "Mulm" "Residue" is full of ????? that the new born Shrimp "fry" need to live as all prepared foods is too big.

    To fix this use a kitchen machine that chops every thing up very fine.

    This will turn the Shrimp Food into a fine powder and you can use this as well.

    Bamboo Shrimp sorry I cannot help you at all.

    Correct, also do not clean the substrate (gravel) as that will be their food.

    They also want plenty of plant cover.

    More info here, this is where I get some of Darwins from.

    I just make the fish and shrimp food finer when an algae wafer breaks down it also becomes a fine powder.

    What ever you do, "Do not fuss around" just let nature take its course.

    I can tell you Dave never cleans the bottom of his breeding ponds he actually told me that himself.

    Do not expect a 100% survival rate a 50% percentage is better than none at all and as you get more your numbers will increase.

    I don't expect a 100% survival, i prefer 50% survival because in 25 liter aquarium is not too much space.

    Many are saying that Anubias and Cryptocorynes can damage to shrimp When pruning them.
    What do you think about this?
