Attempt to Artificially Hatch dropped eggs From my Red Fire Shrimps
 
3 Attachment(s)
I have 5 Tiawan Red Fire Shrimps in a planted 10 gal. tank. Today I noticed that one female dropped a huge cluster of eggs. I looked on line for information on artificially hatching the eggs. I found information on www.planetinverts.com
This will be an interesting if I can get these to hatch. Anyone out there attempt this? I fished out the dropped eggs and put them in a plastic breeder box that has a air stone on the side. I put some monosolenium (Pellia) moss inside and some java moss. I have a dropper to fan the eggs everyday to keep them clean. The breeder box I'm using has small slits for the water flow so it's better then putting in a plastic container like in the article. Will let you know how this project turns out after a few weeks. I took them out as I have 2 assassin snails in that tank and did not want the eggs to be eaten by them.
