Just thinking whether I need to set up a small temporary brackish water tank ….. The flipping nastiest shrimp I have a female amano has eggs at the moment and am debating should I let them breed.... If I leave her in the normal tropical shrimp tank until just before she is due to release the eggs as fry and then swap her into a temporary tank allow her to release the fry and then get her out right sharpish before she decides to eat her own fry and pop her back into the tropical shrimp tank so she can cast. That way I could make the temporary tank into a brackish water tank for the amano fry until they are big enough to desalinate the water gradually and acclimatise them to tropical fresh water when big enough. If I leave the female in the tropical tank the fry once hatched will die within 3 to 4 days ….. However this would leave me with a breeding issue … what do you do when an amano can breed up to 1000 fry at a time … ok so not all make it anyways but could in theory end up with rather a large amount of amano to rehome..... The reason I say this particular amano is a nasty piece of work is because she is the only shrimp I have an issue with. If you don't give her regular supplies of food that is meant for live eaters then she will go and hunt one of my tropical shrimp grab them and kill them and then devour them she takes perhaps two a week if I don't keep an eye on her none of the other amano's have this particular disposition and really not sure why she has it. She's an evil shrimp Anyways back to the though of should I or shouldn't I?
