In saying that, any reason boxing shrimps are half the price of cleaners ?should a pair of shrimps be isolated ie.in a seperate tank just for them.is there any chances of the babies surviving?will love to breed my boxing shrimps as they always spawn
The eggs visible between the shrimp's pleopods (swimming feet) are already fertilised, so there is no need for another shrimp to be present "at birth".should a pair of shrimps be isolated ie.in a seperate tank just for them.
But why not Hennie, I mean with the collective knowledge available to us through the internet and our ability to fairly accurately mimic the conditions in the sea, surely we must be able to do it? If we can get the correct tank setup, correct conditions and correct feeding requirements, surely it must be possible. Any idea what the limiting factor is? Are the ways of the ocean just too complex for us to understand or to mimic on a smaller scale?I've managed to keep some larvae alive for some 10-12 days after "birth", but have never been able to keep them for the 40+ days needed before they metamorphosed into little shrimps.
The problem is two-fold: water condition and foodBut why not Hennie ... If we can get the correct tank setup, correct conditions and correct feeding requirements, surely it must be possible.
