Breeding and breeder box

Postby Jungleboi » Tue Jul 29, 2014 1:28 am

Hey Guys,

Been reading and noticed how some people mention that the breed specific shrimp together.

Wanted to know, how do you know when to move the female to the breeder box?
Do you guys just leave it in there for weeks at a time until it is time for her to have her way with a male?

When the female gets berried you wouldnt want to move her. It will stress her out and might drop her eggs. Best to leave her in the tank and not move her anywhere. The breeder box is actually not used to breed shrimps but rather as a tool to temporarily hokd strimps. Personally I wouldnt keep shrimps in a breeder box long term.

Breeder boxes are excellent for acclimatising new shrimp and yes you can keep and breed in them in the milder months but your success rate will be less than in tank breeding. During summer or winter the temp variance will kill off any sensitive shrimp unless you have goos AC / Heating.

Just recently breed shrimps in the breeding box and now the female is berried after 2 days in the box. If you want to move the berried female to the tank, make sure not doing stuff stressing out the female like net it out with no water.

That is possible too. But would mean you need to be watching the shrimps constantly, and moving the pair when the female has just molted.
You need to be a tad careful as thats when shes at her most vulnerable.
