      No need big water changes, for breed them.
      If u do lot of big water changes, you force shrimps to molt, some shrimps maybe die,because they are not ready for molt.
      Water is ro with minerals, 0-1kh and 5-6 gh ...
      Those tanks,are small, 30lt, so i do small water changes every week, just to keep nitrates as lower i can.

        You see what people are claim, and they don't know... thanks Nic, that's good to know. I see you use soft water, is that because they breed more? Or water hardness doesn't really matter?

          Those shrimps can stay alive in a litle harder water, they can breed but , the problem is wiht babies...
          In those water parameters u can get the maximum survive of babies.
          Then u play with food.
          water parameters in those tanks are
          ph6.5
          Gh6
          kh0-1
          tds 120
          substrate akadama, no co2 , easy plants.
          nitrates low, if nitrates go high, u can see shrimps not active.,

            Wow! That you so much Nic for this detailed information! Now I know what to do if I want to try breeding shrimp having better success. I didn't know about nitrates, that's something to remember as well. Thank you!
