    Alex

    I recently discovered I had an over load "Phosphate" in my tank water and I believe this was the cause of my shrimps not breeding/fry surviving, I have fixed the problem and finally I can see very small fry swimming around.

    I also give standard shrimp and fish foods ground fine for the Shrimp fry.

    Very nice pics !

    And loads of questions ;)
    - Is the tank still low-tech with Snow White inside?
    - What kind of water do you use?
    - What about the filtering system on that tank?

    (Just asking because it seems Caridina don't breed well in low-tanks. So your example brings optimism :)

    Yes, the tank is still low tech.
    I use only tap water, with a ph of 7,2 and kh of 8-10. The adults are ok, i'm more worried about the babies. Adding minerals and Catappa leaves from time to time seems to help.
    For filtration i use a HOB filter.

    No chance, Snow Whites are Caridinas and Sakuras are Neocaridinas. :)

    I'll have to move the Snow Whites to Jelly Island, where my kh is lower. I think i've lost the babies the second time. :(

    I won't give up so easy. I'm planning on trying some peat bags in the filter to see if it'll lower my hardness..
