Pervert!!  Who?  Me???  Never.     I  just  told  Seetha  to  check  if  they  are  doing  something  worthwhile  or  not.  Cause  I  need  the  outcome  for  my  tank.                   

 
 well  then  someone's  a  pervert   Chuckle  
 as  for  the  outcomes  who  knows  whether  you  won't  watch  them  mate  when  they  grow  up  Razz

 Chuckle   Yep  .....  Desperate  Times  calls  for  desperate  measures  .....  The  reason  for  not  keeping  them  in  a  bare  bottom  tank  is  because  they  find  it  difficult  to  walk.  That  was  solved  by  placing  moss  on  the  base  which  covers  70%  of  the  tank  bottom.  So  the  cray  spends  most  of  the  time  in  the  moss.

 I  was  also  looking  to  know  if  shrimps  are  comfortable  in  bare  bottom  tanks.  I  have  some  rainbows  in  a  BB  tank  with  little  moss...I  will  add  more  moss  now.  Good  going  Seetha,  very  good  setup  indeed.  Would  love  to  see  them  some  time.   Very Happy

 Thanks  Dev
 
 The  same  principle  applies  for  shrimps  as  well,  however  if  you  have  a  lot  of  moss  in  the  tank  then  it  should  not  be  a  problem.

 Again  some  good  news  and  bad  news.  
 
 Bad  News:    The  lone  surviving  fry  of  Female#1  did  not  make  it.  None  of  the  18  Salvaged  eggs  from  Female#2  made  it,  this  was  ok  since  i  was  expecting  this.  The  young  ones  started  dropping  of  the  female  around  23rd  May'09.  This  puts  her  berried  date  much  earlier  than  i  expected,  now  the  problem  is  that  they  drop  off  over  a  period  of  2-3  days,  sadly  never  found  even  one  that  i  could  salvage,  plus  did  not  have  time  on  my  hands  to  monitor  the  tank  more  frequently.  I  suspect  she  made  a  meal  out  of  them  even  though  she  was  fed  properly.  Frustration  of  loosing  the  young  ones  got  to  me,  started  monitoring  the  female  more  closely.  On  25th  May'09  when  i  checked  she  was  carrying  only  3  of  them,  still  curled  up  in  a  foetal  position  under  her  belly.  26th  May'09  morning  did  not  find  them  there,  assuming  that  she  had  finished  them  off  as  well  i  put  her  back  in  the  main  tank.  
 
 Good  News:  Luckily  i  did  not  clean  out  the  tank  in  which  the  female  was  housed,  just  thought  will  give  it  a  day  or  two  before  i  do  it  hoping  that  there  might  be  some  surviving  in  all  that  moss  i  dumped  in.  Well  what  do  you  know,  spotted  one  on  28th  May'09,  have  been  able  to  spot  3  so  far.  Dont  know  if  there  are  any  more.  Will  give  it  a  few  days  so  that  they  grow  a  bit  and  can  be  easily  spotted.  
 
 Below  is  a  picture  of  one  of  the  fry,  and  boy  are  they  tough  to  spot,  they  are  literally  invisible  in  the  muck  which  is  there  at  the  bottom.  Not  a  very  good  picture,  but  the  best  i  could  manage  before  he  disappeared.
