    Default Risking my RCS in my five gallon?


    0 Not allowed!
    Here is the situation. I have four RCS that i bought to breed. However, when i got them and waited for a week i was not satisfied with their color and wanted to get redder ones. I am going to get redder shrimp, however, Petco's one dollar a gallon sale came up and i couldn't help myself. So i decided i would breed the redder ones in my new ten gallon that i will be setting up. Should i keep the other RCS in my twenty gallon in a net, or risk putting it in my five gallon. I am scared about my five gallon because the water quality may not be stable (i will not be adding any fertilizers or anything like that). I am still going to breed these RCS, but i honestly want the redder ones as my first priority (Geez, i haven't even got them yet and i already fell in love).

    My breeding plan. Have the painted ones live in my ten gallon and maybe take one male (there will be 15-20 shrimp in all) from the group and put it with my poor quality females (they are such poor quality i thought i was getting a male, but it was just a brownish female). There they can breed and hopefully have babies that are a little more beautiful.
    Yay or nay?

    get a plastic breeding box (floating type) or critter keeper, and you should still be able to keep in the 10g, separated from the other shrimp.

    Ummm I don't want those shrimp in the ten gallon in case they jump.
