Here’s the berried girl! It doesn’t look like she has many eggs, but at least they’re starting to breed!!

Aaauuhhhhhh two of my shrimp died 🙁

I’m testing the water – everything is zero – temp is 75ish. I don’t think the betta hurt them? He hasn’t been very interested and they quickly swim away from him if he gets near. I doubt old age since a found two at the same time? The only thing I’ve changed recently is adding a heater, but I monitored the temp and it didn’t go up much/at all, and that’s been nearly a week ago. Any ideas???? This is my first time keeping neocaridinas.

Here’s Mario for comparison, he’s a candy stripe. Tigers are usually sandy and brown so that guys definitely a beauty

Mario snapped at the emerald crab! You can hear his pistol claw make a snapping sound in the video. It sounds louder in person!

His snaps make a really sharp ‘CRACK’ now that the tank is bare bottom
