My Heroine Mum

She is my heroine mother.

Human beings lives could be really fancy and differentiated. How about the life of a shrimp? in a 10 gallon tank?

This gene shrimp mother' life story is a legend. She travelled half the world from Taiwan to United State, during 2009's autumn. When she just moved here, she's about 3 month old. How many year she has lived?? Actually, she is really old now, from the perspective of shrimp's life span. But she is the toughest and strongest one. I have got 20 gene shrimps,, but only two females left,,, now only she left... and can't imagine how many times she has survived from unpredicted environmental change... and she continues to give birth... until now...

When I only have gene shrimps,,, she is the top unusual one. She was the only one that have baby of a black king kong and a panda..(refer to post

Now,, the result of true king kong blood line and a gene shrimp: dark dark black color eggs.. full loaded... only the one that close to tail isn't. We have been expecting such a moment for long long time. First time we see it in person,, that's our shrimp,,, we're shocked and moved, by this heroine mother!!

She is the best! Hope this batch could hatch successfully,, and shrimp babies can grow up with no accidents!

Crystal Red Shrimplets

The DIY shrimp egg hatching is really a successful one. Hatching rate is almost close to 100%. So glad to see how many lives it has saved.

In the following picture, all eggs are from crs. So amazing that eggs are showing different colors. The color that makes me feel the most exciting is the blue, esp. dark blue ones. You know what it is!!

Funny Rili Shrimp Show

 Rili shrimp is really a new interesting specie. Each individual has its different presentation.



Weight: 8g.
A vitamin concoction developed by the Japanese research team of a university, the EBI-TEN Ultra Pearl encourages rapid development in growth, breeding and coloration of the bee shrimps. Ultra Pearl is one unique and effective product which is not found in industry yet.
According to their research report, in order to increase the solidity and enhance the coloration, they suggest using 2g, for 100L water, for every 5-6 days. 

5 days after the second times using ultra pearl, they took out sample and did analysis, and found that the thickness of shell is increased slightly;
10 days after, the thickness of shell keeps increasing;
15 days after, the thickness of shell is indeed increased; and the solidity of body coloration is enhanced obviously. 

And this product is so effective and popular that, it used to sold out fast in Asian Market. 

My experience:
This is a really effective product. After I first used it in two of my tanks, a big crs tank, and red ruby tank. Both tanks have female starts molting, and male shrimps started to fly around. And found one berried red ruby shrimp the next day.
