    I am not sure what is Tiwati shrimps. If C328 aquarium put them in chiller tank, i dont think is Sulawesi shrimps. Sulawesi Shrimps need high temperature, high pH and high TDS.

    Agreed with you that Sulawesi shrimps need temp around 28'C, but seen Lfs like C328 & Y618 are keeping them in Chiller. As they claimed all shrimp better keep in cooler temp.

    So, it should be Sulawesi shrimps, just Lfs do not know they need higher temp than CRS.

    Dang, 50 units. That's a crapload knowing how many each one costs. Let me know when you're able to unload some offsprings.

    you guys are really RICH...! I saw 1 pair at colorful a few days ago and each $4x. I just could not bear to buy them and scare incase they die and somemore may not reproduce in tank water as well. Better save my money for CRS....

    their structure looks like those feeder shrimps and ninja shrimps.. however, if the young can be given birth like those of crs or cherries, that will be great news.

    Bro, it is the same, some of them a brownish, some more reddish.

    They need pH of high 7 to 8.2 and temperature of 27 to 28. You keeping them in ADA soil with CRS????? what's your water parameters?

    Once in the market, those LFS that usually sell shrimps will have, so just go to your fav LFS will do, currently, I think is no stock liao

    I bought 50+ pieces and put them different setups, so to figure out how to keep them well, I will try and let all of you know.

    The brood size of this shrimp is very small, dont think can breed out sustaining number in short term...
