Since these little critters live all over the world, do they live in cold water as well as warm water?
thanks, so much to learn!
These are two of many colors and variations.
neat looking little critters. And those are how big?
How about ghost shrimp? They will do the same, won't they?
i had a planted tank that i put some ghost (or glass, or grass) shrimp in and did have a couple of spawns i didn't know about until i saw the juveniles.... having the right plants for the shrimp to live in makes a difference.. i fed quite a few to the yp (one made it to the sump), and had been breeding them in 2 tanks until the marmkrebs took over
Nice to hear, Keith. Do the marmorkrebs do the same job as scuds?
Google says nothing about needing salt to breed ghost shrimp, so I may have been miss-informed by my LFS. I'll try some, and I'll have to get me some of those marbled craws too.
the marmokrebs are detrivores, but i do feed them frozen peas.. the krebs are a bit higher up in the food chain, the small ones that manage to escape predation in the pool past about 1.5" are safe from the fish and allowed to grow
the scuds that are in the culture tanks are raised primarily for feed for minnows and baby fish, but they also get seeded into any filters/growbeds
