They are verry, verry slow at growing. I have only seen 1cm in growth over 3 years. They were about 10cm when i got them. As far as i am aware they havent been bred in captivity.

Well i finally get a chance to come back to this tread and i think i know what caused the problem. I should mention it was most likely Bacterial septicemia and not osmoregulation. The red markings are a sure sign of bacterial infection. A little over a year ago there was a problem in my area with th...

Ok after opening up a new test kit today to double check my water everything is pretty much the same except the kH 50ppm-2.8dH and the gh 60ppm-3.36gH . the test kit i was using wasn't old, about 3 months old.

:( I was unable to save him. 24 hours later he died. I am having trouble with my computer so i have been unable to load any photos. It has been in this tank for 2-3 months.

Swollen juv.

I came in from work to find one of my zebs with a swollen stomach. It is roughly 9-10 months old. Water parameters are fine. All other zebs are ok. I havent fed them anything new or different. I cant find any feces in the tank to say if it is white or stringy. I was thinking of treating with flubeno...

IME amano shrimp will pick up eggs and clean them of dirt and fungus. They will also eat eggs that are unfertile. I use them with killifish eggs all the time and never seen them eat a fertile egg. I have seen them eat unfertile bristlenose eggs but not fertile one's. But when it comes to the wee zeb...
