Does anyone have experience breeding and raising Red Cherry Shrimp in freshwater? There is so much conflicting information out there.

Sounds like your ready

I didn't mean that them going into the HOB was a bad thing, by the way. They use it for their own personal breeder

That is really cool!

Someone recently tried to tell me that they do not breed in freshwater, I didn't believe them, but it left me confused nonetheless....
Dream big, celebrate life, and never stop learning.

There are some shrimp that require brackish water to breed (amanos come to mind). However, cherries and the new crystal reds do not.
The following statement is true. The previous statement was false.

Michhael:
Actually Amanos do breed in freshwater but the hatched larvae get washed down stream into brackish water and stay there until they morph into the adult stage. At least that is what I have read.

Randy's right :-)

My female Amanos are ALWAYS fat with eggs. I've considered setting up a brackish tank just to try hatching some, but from what I've read, it's not real easy to get more then a few shrimplets.

I still might give it a try now that I'm setting up tanks in the garage

They have a larvae stage too. Not like cherry shrimp that are just tniy little replicas of their parents.
Ever feel like you`re flying and drowning at the same time?
