Last Saturday I found this pair of shrimp at Petco. I don't know whats going on but this is the second set of new shrimp species in the past two weeks from the same petco. One had bright green eggs when I got them and they seem to be getting darker, hopefully this means they will hatch soon. I am starting them off in a breeder basket in a 10 gallon tank. Its the same tank as the Wurdemanni so I may end up moving them into their own tank at some point. For now I put them in this situation just to keep them quarantined.

I had these once when I was in Chicago...years ago. I'm anxious to see you raise some! I need to get Andy Rhyne's shrimp tips to help you nail this stuff down!

You only need to raise one...

I haven't figured out how to get good pics from my microscope camera. I took this with my iPhone through the microscope lense.
