    Default my cardinals

    My story......

    I was last October in Hong Kong and bought ten of this Cardinal shrimp...after a flight including homecoming of 26 hours....I arrived in Holland without loses.....

    After I put this creatures in a Aqua40 tank (30 liter ) they seemed to be happy............after a long trip...

    In one week time one by one died...I didn't know what the cause was and what to do..

    PH was, I think 6 at that time....It crossed my mind that PH must be at least 7,5 or 8......So I made a waterchange.....

    then it came to a hold......result 2 out of 10 survived.....but didn't know at that moment.....do I have a couple...a male and a female.....

    So one month goes by and nothing happend....but after a waterchange a few days before christmas......I came to a conclusion that one of these 2 shrimp got eggs....( 23th of December )....So I've got a couple in my little tank.




    So...after 19 days ( 11 Jan. ) I saw some shrimplets at my sponge.....I didn't know how many.....(later I counted 15 of them )....



    but after she changed her "molting" she got again some eggs.....after another 19 days I saw once more new shrimplets.........





    Now it's 13th of February and this morning I saw again that these female got for the third time in 9 weeks eggs...

    I have a somewhat related question for those on this forum. Is anyone aware of gender change in these shrimp or in any of the other freshwater shrimp in the hobby? I ask this because there are species of marine shrimp that change sex under certain circumstances.
    It seems plausible that this characteristic might be found in some freshwater shrimp as well.

    To my knowledge, this does not occur with any of the known species of fw shrimp.
