    Howdy all, best wishes for the new year.

    My cleaner shrimps recently 'got busy' and yesterday I noticed one was full of eggs. :thumbup:
    I see the eggs were gone this morning.:( I assume the clowns, regal tang, coral beauty, and damsiles had a yummy treat last night/early this morning. Still I must be doing something right.:)

    Wondering who's had success in breeding and raising baby shrimps. I haven't had a chance to hit the literature yet but I was wondering if someones "been there, and done that" in SA.

    How long does it take to raise them?
    Feeding? What foods are available in SA, how often did you feed,....
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Don't know actually about the shrimp part but I do know that the cleaner shrimps breed repeatedly in captivity. The cost and raising of the young is just to expensive and if you leave the eggs in the tank you get free coral and fish food:)
