    Sexy Shrimp fry

    Well the first batch came too quickly so I was not ready for them. The larva are the little white specs floating around. You can see them better in the second pic.

    Well never count your sexy shrimp before the final molt to adulthood. If I am able to raise any of them I will be selling them but I will have to wait and see what happens.

    WOOOO shrimplets!!!!! Nice job Bruce!
    For someone with relatively little salt water experience (like me, who WANTS a tank) , would you recommend keeping these guys? Or does it take someone with a bit more saltwater tank time under their belt?

    Although they are hard to raise, basic maintainence of sexy shrimp is relatively easy. They do much better with a live rock, live sand set up but the tank does not need to be large with a 10 gallon probably housing as many a dozen or so shrimp.
