2. Bulk release into any tank can crash the system, resulting in deaths. Buy and release in smaller quantity unless your BB can handle the load. (eg put in more fishes first... as you are releasing shrimps, remove the fishes, so the bio-load doesn't crash the system).
understood bro
so far tested some slowly,my finding is
1) fire red shrimp 70% survival and start to hv shrimplets,conclusion success
2)bds 20% survival and no shrimplets yet,conclusion unknown
3)crs same as bds result

so thought of introducing more bds&crs to increase the chances of mating.i am not too worry about the water parameters because i hv confident is above standard.

cheers happy shrimp keeping
