    I recently got some blue velvet shrimp from a fellow club member, but I haven’t gotten them to breed yet. I have had them about 3 months or so. Any water parameters anyone can suggest? I’ve tried to use a heater to bring the temperature to 78 Fahrenheit, i’ll see if they breed. Any suggestions? These are neocaridina shrimp, so if you guys have any neocaridina shrimp, please share your water parameters on how you guys breed them. Thanks!

    I think that 78 degree is a bit high for dwarf shrimp. Most shrimp species prefer the water temperature to be in the high 60s / low 70s. Also getting the TDS levels right for shrimp can be a key factor in making them breed. I have always like the chart/guide they have on the discobee website. Link below…

    edit: Β I didn’t realize this was so old. Β Did you ever get them breeding?

     

     

    I agree woth the temp being too high. Β What is your pH, GH/KH? Β Are they molting ok? Β Is it a shrimp only tank? Β Any IAL or alder cones? Β Bacter AE? Β I just got some today but shrimp peeps swear by it as far as encouraging breeding. Β If you get some, don’t follow the dosing directions, do about 1/4 or just use a toothpick. Β Neos aren’t nearly as picky as caridina but they still need to be in a certain parameter range.

    They are molting ok, and i used 1 IAL, but I haven’t used Bacter AE yet. I might try it soon. got it, 1/4. Thanks, I will put the Bacter AE in mind. πŸ˜‰

    But it is awfully expensive, though. I prefer Repeshy

    THERE ARE SHRIMPLETS IN THE BLUE VELVET SHRIMP TANK!!!!!! Now I will have to maintain the same water quality. I had the right conditions, and I just had to wait. (With no heater)
