Shrimp BreedingCrossbreeding possibilities are not complex and can be explained by this simple 7 x 7 chart. Only a few different species will interbreed with eachother, most distinct shrimp species will not hybridize with eachother.

Balcony Planter 24g

I always wanted a pond, but living in a downtown condo it was never an option. So I picked up a tough oversized planter, and filled it with dirt, lava rocks, and water. No filtration, no movement,   but densely planted. TDS stabilized at around 300, and 0 Ammonia, Nitrites, Nitrates. Currently stocked with a few panda platies and shrimp culls.

Walmart Bowl 2g

Got this little bowl for a impulse-buy rescue betta. Background features ludwigia repens, midground with a two crypt wendtii red, and foreground utilizing staurogyne repens, with other odd stems interspered everywhere. An extremely budget and low-maintenance bowl.

Fluval Spec 2g

The tank that started it all, blue gravel, plastic ornaments, and a betta fish. Only the betta still remains. The tank now has a few large high light stems and a foreground of UG, that still hasn't filled in. There are shrimp (culls) in the tank, survival of the fittest.

Fluval Spec 5g

The new and larger Fluval Spec, retains the same large filtration compartment and strong flow. The stock lighting is on the very-low side but is doing its job growing some star grass. This tank is currently being used for a mutant rili breeding project.
