    Difference between malayan and coloured shrimp are their size. Coloured shrimp are bigger while malayan are smaller. Other than that, i dont find the difference between the two.
    Coloured shrimps are real opportunities. They will nap on shrimps about to molt and trap them in their old shell to eat. Yes they eat the shrimps alive. Thats why i separate my bm with coloured.

    Thats the observation i have. Malayan also have shorter nose rostrum.

    Re: Where to buy Malayan shrimps in small quantities

    Oh. That doesn't sound good. I have 35 colours with 20 rilis in my 2 ft. Lots of hiding spots though. It's kind of hard to remove them now that they can hide inside the nooks and crannies. Have to hope for the best.

    Do colour shrimps eat plants? I seem to notice the tips of my syngonanthus sp belem leaves being cut off. Or perhaps it could be due to my heavy trimming of the plants.

    Re: Where to buy Malayan shrimps in small quantities

    They munch on rotting plants and some do actually eat the live plant. For mine, they did both therefore, my carpets plant getting lesser. In order to maintain my plants, i am forced to feed more regularly.

    They will be attracted to the scent of their favourite food and they cannot resist it. Use a net to hold their favourite food and lure them.

    Another method is putting all the food to the place where u can easily catch them without disturbing ur scape. I used both method to capture all 50-60 of them in a 1 ft planted tank. By then my bm left 3 only from initial 20

    Do you think if i keep the shrimps well-fed they won't prey on other shrimps? Right now I only have coloured shrimps in my tank but I might be thinking to add some variants of cherries at some point..

    I have Cherry and color shrimp mixed. So far, they live peacefully.

    I believe color shrimps only go for melted and dying plants stems. I have color shrimps in 3 of my tanks, non eat any of my healthy plant or moss.

    i seldom feed my shrimps, they are meant to feed on algae and melted plant.

    In one of my stable tank, I try to grow algae during lighting period, there will be green algae on the drift wood and stones, When I wakes up the next morning, the algae are cleared. The cycle repeats everyday

    as long as your water parameter is stable, the female shrimp will survive.

    For the larvaes, think the other shrimps are not eating it. I went through the same process when my Malaya shrimp gave birth last month, but after 3 weeks, also most larvae disappeared, Think is due to the lack of dead spots in my tank filtration.

    But 1 good news, last night found quite a number of shrimplets after I do some replanting of my existing rotala, so still trying to figure out is it from my Malaya or fire red as they are still colorless.

    Re: Where to buy Malayan shrimps in small quantities

    Malayan shrimp larvae are very weak swimmers, usually with a strong filtration system that circulates water well, where there are no dead-spots (ie. areas with low or no circulation), most of the malayan shrimp larvae will tend to get sucked into the filter and get chopped up (even if a shrimp sponge/mesh guard is attached to the intake, the larvae are still too small to keep out).

    On the other-hand, if you use gentle sponge filters or go without a filter, then you will tend to see much higher survival rates of the larvae, as they will be in a safe environment to successfully transition to shrimplet form.

    Re: Where to buy Malayan shrimps in small quantities

    I see alot of larvae swimming up and down at the front of my tank, and there seem to be many more female shrimps full of eggs! really quite fascinating to watch; but not sure how long they'll take to transform into baby shrimps..

    thanks Urban Aquaria for recommending Seaview.. i went there yesterday and it was really PACKed...

    Fishy business or aquatic avenue sometimes have them. Seaview Sells in bulk but you can request them to sell you in small quantities too.

    Y618 has it too. They call them colour shrimps. Sometimes they have it in bags of 10 or bags of 50. Good to call first.
