    Female Amanos are larger than the males.

    In reference to successfully breeding them, no I have not managed to do so yet. In order to do so, you need to slowly convert the female that is berried (carrying eggs) to brackish, wait for the eggs to drop, then remove mom, and then convert the tank to salt. After this you need to wait until the little zoes have molted 7 times and look like small shrimp, then you need to convert back to brackish, wait for a few more molts, and convert to freshwater. Any mess ups along the way and all of the zoes die....

    It is definately not easy. Good luck!!! Let us know if you manage it!

    As CAF said, everything I've read about breeding them requires work. If you hav the patience to switch the mom to brackish water then rear the young in saltwater you are better than me. Also I believe the young will require special 'tiny' foods. I think it would be possible to grind down flake food to small bites.
    Good luck!

    Shrimp and snail junkie... What can I say, I like the little things in life.

    I definately can understand that. As for feeding them, for anyone interested, greenwater initially, then moving up to tiny particulate matter, and so on....
