    Hello everyone,

    Still learning as much as I can. Currently have a 75 gallon, a 375 gallon and 125 gallon high tech tanks as well as a 10 gallon low tech crystal red shrimp tank.

    Hi Steve - great 'scapes. Love the Shrimp - great collection. I assume you started with a few and they bred? Mine have a way of doing that - well the Cherry's. Do you have to cull out the variants to keep them pure?

    Thanks, Mike. I started with a pretty decent sized colony that was loaded with juvies a handful of months ago. Seems as though many of them matured about the same time. They are considered 'mischlings' as the group throws an occasional red-wine and black-bee. They are also all quality grades. I haven't thinned anyone out yet, I actually enjoy the variety!

    Interesting - thanks for the reply. I noticed over the years that my Cherry shrimp will produce fire red, and crap red, all the way toward nearly colorless. If I had a shrimp only tank where I could get at them, I would cull them to keep the strain pure. In a 360, that is literally impossible...

    I have a buddy that has those deep blue shrimp with the orange eyes - great shrimp but they like it kind of cool and mixing them into a normal tank doesn't work so well. They are quite striking though.
