    I am thinking of adding some shrimp to my aquarium. Is there a way to avoid having baby shrimp?

    Thanks.

    it depends on the species of shrimp. Red Cherry shrimp are small and will always breed although the babies may not survive depending on what else is in the tank. Amano shrimp are larger and need a very particular type of brackish water to breed - one of our members is attempting it now with considerable difficulty.

    Hi, thanks for the reply.

    I want blue shrimp, LOL. I notice there are several blue varieties. I'd like a kind of medium blue, or sky blue. Do you know about those?

    I might just get the Amanos since all I would have to worry about is eggs removal, plus they are good scavengers.

    Do you know of any other varieties of shrimp that can't breed in freshwater?

    Thanks.

    With amanos there is no concern about egg removal. I have 2 amanos in one of my 20L tanks and the female is berried very often, then she isn't - that's it. No larvae are seen (which wouldn't survive anyway), no dropped eggs.

    Neocaridina sp. (the family RCS belong to) are available in specifically bred colors, red, blue, green, yellow, orange.

    All Neo color morphs will interbreed, and breed prolifically, as advised in your other thread.

    Why do you not want shrimplets?

    I don't want shrimplets because I'm new, and I won't know what to do with them. And if I'm trying to save some, then the other babies being eaten would be hard to take, I think.

    I was new to fishkeeping when I started out with RCS as well.

    Research first, and trial and error have been my experience....my Neos have done well with reproducing, to no detriment in any of my tanks.

    In the right environment, shrimplets are welcome and encouraged, nothing to be apprehensive about.

    I've sold them, both privately and to my LFS when I thought I had too many. I have several tanks, so I've also just moved them around from time to time, but I never really thought they were out of control.
