cool! I had a data point of 9 months assuming the oldest so we both have the same data.

Feeding time in larvae tank#02, its pretty funny because tank one with the older infant shrimps all eat from the substrate yet the newly born shrimps in tank #02 all eat from the surface, whether this changes with age or just how they have learnt is for me to document and work out :grin:

Tank #1 has 6 berried females in now :laugh: Very happy with how its doing. Tank #02 has gone cloudy and i think its a bacterial bloom, when i setup the tank initially and added larvae there couldn't of been enough bio-load to cycle the water or keep it cycled so now the baby's are getting bigger and producing more waste and the tank is going through a mini cycle it seems. I dosed bio digest and added some macrolage, the shrimp are still red and happy so im not worried and i haven't seen any sick of dead shrimp and i will test the water parameters at the weekend when i get some free time.
