  • the many colors of the neocaridina

    Alright so i am goin to be starting a breeding project involving ALL the Neo color morphs if i can find sellers for them :-) I am not really doing this to sell them but in the end i know I will so yeah fun haha

    Anyways here is the link to all the Neo color morphs given to me by AmazonPassion on a different forum...
    http://www.naturebrain.com/en/shrimp...:uncategorised

    I already own 2 of the many morphs... right now i will be sticking to the solid colors the rillis I will wait a bit before adding to the stock pile lol... oh and the colors i currently have are red and blue (my oranges died in a temp fluctuation a few months back..)

    Now how this will work is everyone will start in 2.5-3g tanks and will upgrade to 5gs when the groups get larger I will also keep and breed snails along side each morph and attempt to match their colors with the snails... the blues are kinda stuck with the snails in their tank right now since this idea can after they were added...

    So here's the run down for tanks
    Red, pure red rams
    Blues, rams, pond snails, MTS
    Orange, orange rams
    Yellow, assassin snails, random ramshorns
    Green, FTS?
    Chocolate, unknown snail (ideas)
    White, snail unknown(ideas)
    Black, pond snails

    That's it that I can think of right now... so what your thoughts on this idea? Obviously it won't all be done tomorrow but in steps all will try to be heavily planted as well with low-moderate light plants... lighting maybe marineland LEDs as desklamps I Ave learned cause burning in the floating plants...

    Figured out what the blues are missing in their tank... some kind of driftwood... so I went to eBay I just bought some... I think they are the perfect size (and price just one of those at my lfs is 5.99) going to attach that wayward anubias eye to it...
    Here's the auction I just won :-)

          Yeah she had a couple pieces listed I would love to have but I won't pay the prices for... wish I lived in Arizona lol would be awesome to collect it myself!

          Yeah when i get a bunch of colors I don't mind sharing with everyone here ;D

          Which brings me to I uess ZeeZ had a failed experament(sp) with breeding 2 colors and got wild type colors... I am going to see if he still wants to sell them if so I am going to get them :-)

                If you have success breeding your shrimp, I would definitely be interested in purchasing some from you. I have been thinking about starting a shrimp tank, but need to do my homework first. Some of the ones in your link are so cool looking.

                  That is how it all starts with the shrimp addiction. You buy one color and then you keep wanting other colors.

                      I am bad about waiting til I am prepared to do something... just bought 10 wild types from ZeeZ... I say I am bad because I don't have a tank setup for them... woops... I have a container that's as long as a 3g but half as tall... should hold them just fine for a week or so until i get their tank cycled (know getting a double sponge filter for my betta was an awesome idea :-) )

                        I'd wait personally.

                        I'm more than happy with just one strain of Neos lol. I just have to figure out which one I should try now.

                          You only like multiple shrimp tanks right now because they're still easy to clean....just wait til there's a sea of tiny shrimp to work around every water change
