    Crystal Red and Bee Shrimp

    So, few months ago I got some crystal red and bee shrimp from a guy on kijiji. I've had cherry shrimp but they all seemed to keep disappearing. I think my tetras may have been eating them. Anyway, I now have around 25 crystal red and bee shrimp (and a few cherries left). I noticed about a month ago that some of them are berried. From my research, I figure I should be seeing babies any time now. Is this right?

    Also, any suggestions for feeding. I don't want to have a huge amount of food since I only have 2 8 g tanks, one with the shrimp and the other with 6 tetras and a dwarf frog. I have been giving the shrimp sinking algae pellets but I'd like to make sure as many of my baby shrimp survive as possible. Suggestions for food for them?

    In general I would only feed ever 3 days if they have live plants

    Do you know if any local stores have that?

    They do have plants and a piece of driftwood but not heavily planted. I usually feed every other day, one pellet.

    I can't remember off the top of my head but the best place to buy it was out west, in a bulk amount sent by letter mail. Was cheap. AFK used to carry it as well.
