Start a new thread and list your water parameters and tank details and I’m sure we can change that :wink: .

What is your exact set up? Yours can be completely different than theirs. There's so many variables to consider. I have a simple jar in the house that's already had 6+ berried females this summer. My tanks in the garage have stopped breeding over the summer. This is probably due to the temperatures going up and down and not being consistent. The jar is very specific. No feeding, no moving it around, not even topping it off since it has an air tight lid. I open it once a week. That's all. It gets direct sunlight 5-6 hours a day. No excess algae. I have no room in the house for my tanks. If I could I would.

my water parameters were all good, only thing is my water temp is 30-32c most of the time. My friends' tanks were not even tested. :laugh:

Try it and see, they prefer stable tank conditions like any other shrimp species. Good luck.
