    Default I bred my shrimp


    0 Not allowed!
    I have some eastern grass shrimp (ghost shrimp) and one of them produced two baby shrimps. One of those died but the other one is doing just fine. I read that these shrimp are very difficult to breed. Does anyone have any idea what I might've done right? It would be nice to be able to do it again on purpose.

    I've read the shrimp are easy to breed but keeping the babies alive is the trick.

    Well, I guess that's what I meant. I kept two of the babies alive until they were old enough to look like tiny adult shrimp, and then one is still going strong.

    I'm not sure how I even managed to get them past their egg stage.

    Shrimp love moss and crawling around in it and hiding in it. Have you some java moss for them to hide in and feed on?

    I do not. I don't have any moss at all.

    These guys are so tiny they'd need infusoria to feed on.

    That's the thing; I didn't add any. Can they survive on diatoms or algae or leftover food? Because that's all I can think of that might have been available to them. I mean, I didn't know they were there, so I couldn't really provide them with anything extra.
