Breeding Red Nose shrimp

Post by Brotato »

Has anybody had any luck with these yet? I know that they require either brackish or saltwater for the larvae. I tried searching the forum and the only thing I saw was from 2004, and this hobby moves fast so I'm sure more people have at least attempted. I have 4 in my nano and regular access to saltwater because I own a reef tank, so I was thinking about trying my hand at raising them. My biggest concerns are what size food they'd require, how quickly to transfer them, what salinity (full salt or brackish), and at what point to transition them back.

I'd take it step by step. Try to keep any possible larvae alive for more than a few days and then we'll go from there. :)
