why  is  it  that  he  shrimp  sold  in  market  for  consumption  from  local  lakes  are  always  colorless...never  seen  any  red  ones....                

 
   
 
 Maybe  its  because  all  they  die  stressed  out.  ROFL  
 
 On  a  more  serious  note  check  for  cooler  places  in  the  water  body.
 Shady  places.  Areas  with  trees  having   overhanging  branches  providing  shade.  
 Between  rocks.  
 Below  floating  branches/leaves/driftwood.
 
 Killies  will  be  on  the  top  of  the  water  body  with  the  glowing  ensign  on  the  forehead.  Shrimps  right  at  the  bottom  scavenging  the  debris.
   
 Do  not  get  into  the  water  or  disturb  the  water  unless  you  are  going  in  for  the  kill.

 Only  could  get  shrimp  fry,  no  big  ones.....locals  say  bigger  ones  are  there  in  rainy  season.

 Chek  the  parameters  of  river  water  and  your  aquarium  water.  
 Again  visit  to  the  river  and  also  bring  water.  Keep  fish  and  shrimps  in  the  same  water  after  mixing  some  water  available  at  your  place.  Within  2-3  weeks  they  will  habitual  with  your  water  and  can  house  them  successfully.

 This  can  be  due  to  high  temperature  or  low  oxygen  level.

 They  died  because  of  the  heat.  The  heat  reduces  the  amount  dissolved  oxygen  in  the  water.  Frequent  water  changes  after  collection  and  on  the  way  back  is  one  way  to  beat  this.  
 This  is  another  reason  we  use  cars  with  the  A/C  running  all  the  time  and  park  with  A/C  running  in  the  shade.  On  our  fish  collection  trips  one  guys  designated  job  is  only  to  do  frequent  water  changes.  
 
 All  the  best  on  your  next  collection  trip.

 Sure.  Any  water  for  changes  is  better  than  no  changes.

 I  managed  to  keep  a  Travancoria    Sp.  alive  for  a  coupla  days  with  water  changes  from  mineral  water  bottles  on  a  trip.  It  even  lasted  over  a  month  in  Madras  after  that.  Dont  ask  me  what  happened  later  though.

 Once  they  settle  down  they  will  not  need  or  have  any  special  requirements.  
 
 When  you  have  achieved  sufficient  numbers  by  their  constant  multiplication  you  could  give  them  plenty  of  hiding  places/moss  and  then  add  your  Betta's.  
 
 Note:  Mosquito  larvae  are  not  touched  by  the  shrimp  and  your  container  could  end  up  as  a  fertile  breeding  ground  if  the  water  is  staganant.

 You  would  have  fed  it  to  one  of  your  monsters,  What  else  can  we  expect?   Sad

 BettaBitten,  shrimp  will  be  dead  in  hot  water  that  is  in  a  almost  dried  up  lake.  search  for  the  shady  places  on  the  shore  and  trawl  up  the  shrimp,  bring  them  home  and  keep  them  in  a  cool  place  with  an  airstone  bubbling  all  the  time.  Add  a  bit  of  tank  water  once  in  awhile  and  after  a  day  they  should  be  ok,  dont  bother  feeding  them  and  ensure  they  dont  jump.  In  my  opinion,  uts  too  hot  to  catch  shrimp  now...
