Breeder Tank/Net For Ghost Shrimp?
 
Hello everyone! I was wondering if anyone has had any experience breeding ghost shrimp (allowing the females to release their hatchlings, rather) in a breeder tank or net such as this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...A16EQQFLPSKFJZ

I'm wondering if it'd be a good idea to get one as I seem to have 3 pregnant shrimp and would love to keep the babies if at all possible.

Thanks in advance! :)

I have never bred ghost shrimp but from what I understand the larvae have a planktonic stage. The breeder in the link uses slots to allow for water circulation. IMO this will not contain the larvae. You probably would have better luck with a net breeder. Good luck with this and post your updates/progress.

Thanks for the advice! Do you have any recommendations for a net breeder by chance?

I can't actually. Have not purchased one of those in a very, very long time. Some downsides from what I recall is that you cannot see into it as clearly as you would with one made out of acrylic and algae might grow on it.
