So unfortunately due to a few space issues, I will not be breeding bettas. It would be unfair to the fry because I am not 100% of the space situation. I don't have room for the containers in my bedroom, and the room I was going to use may or may not be occupied. Ughhh…
BUT I will be breeding Cherry Shrimp in my spare 10g. I bought a filter today and added it to my cycled 20g to kick start it. I have been reading about this for a few months now, and I decided it would be a cool experience without all the fry stress. I don't have to worry about finding homes for shrimp!
They will be bred in a cycled, planted 10 gallon aquarium. The only tank mates will possibly be a few mystery snails. I was going to use the shrimp I have in my 20g community, but they seem content so I don't want to mess with them. So I am getting 15 new shrimp from Aquabid.
When they start to make a lot of babies, I will be selling them and trading them with other shrimp breeders for genetic variation. Of course, Bettafish members get a good deal ;)
I would LOVE to see some pictures of your shrimp and shrimp setups, and I am so welcome to any advice. Thank you guys!
