    Just an update, had to cull out 20 shrimps over the weekend. Had about 10 almost clear one and some pretty low quality red ones. I'm probably going to move the best red ones to my 10 gallon and move some more lower grades ones to my other tank. Didn't want to disturb tank too much since there's still about 3 berried females, don't want to stress them for no reason. What do you guys do with the culls?

    Another tips i learned from Seattle aquarist, aim a bamboo chopstick in front of your shrimp, shrimp will hop off and you are ready to net those shrimp out or taking picture with it.
    Iam a newbie looking for guidance from all senior

    Feeding time with GlasGarten SnowFlakes prior to culling. Just bought a bag to try. Shrimps seems to like it. 30g is tiny, too expensive I think.

    Not many people have Bloody Mary so I would like love to know....

    1. What's your water param?
    2 Are you using RO water? If so, what are you using for re-mineralize the water?
    3. What type of food for the shrimp?

    Also, I noticed that the temp 73 degree, I think they like it higher but whatever you're doing its working
    There is a guy on letgo sells Bloody Mary shrimp in Glendale and grows in some for free

    Just some update, need to clean the glass again. Marimo moss carpet needs a good vacuum this weekend too. Tried the petri dish that I grabbed from work, it was just too light tends to hoover/float a bit. Ended up buying some dish on eBay, Boba straws are awesome though.



    Feeding time, just sprayed some GlasGarten Shrimp Baby in via water solution. Adults and young seems to love this stuff more than the GG Bacter AE. GG Snowflake stuff is still their favorite. I've tried Indian Almond Leaves, dried Mulberry Leaves, fresh organic spinach and fresh organic kale (took some from my wife's salad bag), GG Shrimp Dinner, BorneoWild Red Ruby, Shrimp King Biotase (caution this stuff creates a lots of biofilm use sparingly).
    From my limited experience with my Bloody Mary shrimps. I would rank GG Snowflake as #1, GG Shrimp Baby as #2 prepared food, dried Mulberry leaves (reboiled for 5 minutes) favorite dried leaf, and blanched organic spinach as favorite fresh vegetable. My CRS in the other tank doesn't really seem to swarm anything, they seem to like blanched organic spinach.
