i have 14g npt..
5 ghost shrimp
3 female bettas
1 of my ghost shrimp is nearly 2 weeks with eggs, another one has eggs on the way too.the last day or 2 i have started seeing black dots in the eggs that look like eyes so hopefully the eggs are fertile. im gonna try raise the fry..
there is also 1 shrimp, im not sure if its male or female but it is carrying around 2 eggs in its back legs,im not sure if it stole them from the pregnant female or if she gave them to the shrimp or if the shrimp found them and decided to try hatch them out
i have covered my filter intake and outtake with fine sponge so no babies will be sucked up and the flow is nearly non existant..ive got some algea in the tank and ive been crumbling up flake food into powder and sprinkling it in every couple of days,im pretty sure i have infusoria in the tank,ive got many tiny tiny white dots swimming around the glass and free swimming in the tank,i also have algea wafers that when disolved turn into a fine crumbly mess in the bottom.. i also have multiple snail eggs in the tank and small baby snails or varying sizes..
so with all this possible food in the tank im hoping the baby shrimplets will be able to fit it into their mouths and survive..
i know they probly wont eat algea wafers or crushed up flake food or snail eggs but im feding the plants and the other tiny things in the tank so hopefully the shrimp will find tiny critters to eat and grow..
i know its possible for the babies to be eaten so i have provided plenty of hiding spots for them to try live in..
so,heres the pics of my breeding tank and female with eggs
I probably wont end up with any shrimp make it but ill keep updating you guys. ive provided the best i can for the shrimp to grow and survive so fingers crossed
