Ummmmm I got BABY Sexies everywhere WTH do I do!!!!

 

There are like 100+ swimming in my tiny tank!!!!

 

 

I don't know what it is, but it is like my tank is a breeding ground for everything!

Hehe, better get used to it, because they breed very easily. If you want to raise the babies, you'll need to remove the larvae and put them into a separate tank with low flow and light. They eat baby brine shrimp from day one. :)

Has anyone had these spawned and raised naturally in their tanks?

 

Any success of rearing them?

 

I read cleaner shrimps hasn't been done yet, but these?

Sexies are supposed to be as easy to raise as peppermint shrimp.

They eat baby brine shrimp from day one and they have a short larvae stage.

Here's a thread from.... another forum... of someone raising sexies successfully.

I have another crazy question...

 

What do you think about ~5 sexy shrimp sharing a tank with 2 harlequin shrimp? (and possibly a yasha/pistol team)

 

Good idea or bad idea? o_o

I don't see any problem with that. :)

Oh man! Not sure if that is good or bad news.

 

Was thinking of dividing the 10g and keeping each on their own side, but would rather not to allow a fish to be in the tank as well. I can get asterina stars from a LFS (one block from where I work) to feed the harlequins. If I can't for some reason I'm sure I can pay people to ship them to me o_o

 

It is the one and only LFS where I live (don't actually live in Sacramento, but in Woodland about 20 miles away). He only carries a few saltwater fish at a time, but can order most anything I want it seems. He has been keeping SW tanks since the 80's I believe and knows his stuff.

 

I think the stocking for the 10g is figured out...

 

5x Sexy Shrimp (oh so sexy)

2x Harlequin Shrimp (also sexy?)

Yasha/Pistol team

Random cheap coral

10# LR or so

 

Koirala Nano

~4g acrylic fuge (going to DIY this one)

50w Stealth Heater

80w Orbit Light Fixture

 

BAM! Sexy tank! I think I'll even go as far as naming it "Seiryoku's Sexy Tank" unless there are objections...

 

Time to leave work...been a long week...sleepy...and stuffs...

LOL! No objections here, but I see you've already gone and done it. :P

I promise I'll stop by your tank thread soon and see what's going on!

I will soon.

 

Talked to the owner of my LFS after work today. He said his wholesaler usually has sexy and harlequin shrimp in stock. Told him how to sex the harlequin and asked if he would mind sexing a pair for me when my tank is ready for livestock. The owner is like an encyclopedia, but has never really dealt with harlequin shrimp, hence not knowing how to sex them.

 

I'm hoping to have a group of seven sexy shrimp and a male/female pair of harlequin in one or two weeks. Probably more like two, but one can hope :-p

 

The sexy shrimp will cost me $9 each, which is cheap compared to other places around me, so I'm hoping the harlequin will only be ~$25 each. He also sells chocolate chip starfish for $9 each, about $5 less than others again.

 

Fear not, when the tank is stocked there will be more pictures than anyone will ever care to look at of them ^^)b

Hmm, I may be able to sneak in a sexy shrimp picture by the end of the month. Not sure how great of one I can get without a macro lens though.

 

Also, I think I'll be bored tonight when I get home from work and had a plan! Going to see about whipping up a Sexy Shrimp Badge of some sorts that those in the Sexy Club (bwahahahah) can use...and link back to this thread!

 

Think anyone would use it or would it only be good for occupying my time this evening?

Cool. Was getting my haircut after work, unexpectedly, and had some ideas while sitting in the chair trying to not fall asleep!

 

Need to find the properly posed sexy shrimp to use for it and I can start on a rough draft of it.

Found a few pictures that might work. Still need to hop in the shower (hair all over >_<) and eat....but I had a thought.

 

I think I'll defiantly tag the image with a nano-reef.com to prevent anyone from stealing it and using it on other sites (may be paranoid, but don't like people jacking my work...even if they never will) and may also customize them with people's names on request. Need to get a design started to see if I can integrate names into it at all though...rambling...

 

Good idea? Bad idea?

The names would be a bonus, but really I would just do one generic one that anybody can grab and post in their sig or whatnot.

Here is what I have so far. Not really happy with it yet. Simple layout for now...

It is more of a sig right now...I could reduce it's height even more so it blends in better though.

 

Same thing as above, only resized to check readability.

Different shrimp.
