When I do my water changes on my shrimp tanks I pour the water threw a brine shrimp net and I still manage to throw some away. I do like sand much better than gravel with shrimp. After you are successfully getting babies it will take about a month from the time they hatch till the time you actually see them. I seem to see a bunch all at once. They are about like guppies having 5-30 shrimplets per month as long as they are happy which doesn't seem to take much. lol

I do have a filter cover on the intake, so I know they are not getting sucked in. Perhaps it's normal not to see many, but I'm wondering, from those of you who have lots of experience if you can enlighten me on the cycle of these little guys.

Most Likely the mother shrimps had given birth but they somehow did not make it. One concern is water parameters.

Ph of 6.5 will be good for shrimplets, also, did you provided alot of driftwood and moss for food for shrimplets to grow?

I have some pictures on my blog, so do take a look.

Just a few days ago I started to see lots more. My ph is more like 7.2, but I can lower it, by using RO water exclusively. Thanks for the info.
They do have plenty of moss and places to hide, but no driftwood, per se.

What is an Indian Almond leaf, and where would you get that? I think they're doing fine, and I probably don't need that, but if it's something to get easily, I'd get it I do feed them a powder food for baby shrimplets
