Water Parameters

The Yellow Golden Back Shrimp can be housed in many different water parameters. I have kept them in a pH range from 6.0 to 8.0, soft and hard water, temperatures from 72F to 84F and in many different soils like ADA Aquasoil and normal gravel. It is common knowledge that, like its cousin the Red Cherry Shrimp, the Yellow Shrimp can live in almost any freshwater aquarium given that the tank is habitable and does not contain predators of course. The Yellow Shrimp is an extremely versitile and reproduction shrimp given that the water is clean and maintained properly.

Breeding

The Yellow Golden Back Shrimp is extremely prolific, meaning that they breed readily and virtually around the clock. A healthy colony will quickly multiply and females will be constantly pregnant. It is typically 30-45 days from pregnancy to hatching. The female carries over 25 eggs at adulthood. It is said that sometimes it seems that the Yellow Shrimp carries so many eggs it appears as if some will fall out. The best way to tell if a female is close to hatching her eggs is by the appearance of a set of eyes inside each egg. This is easy to spot and will let you know that hatching is literally days away.

 Another great way to tell is by the emergence of a new saddle when the female still has eggs. The emergence of the saddle is the indication that the female is prepared to have a new set of eggs and that the current eggs are close to hatching.

    This the first time ordering from APB and it was a good experience. I had only one problem with the yellow neon shrimp, three came in dead. But APB explained their policy and will make good for them on next order and have no problem with it. Will be doing more business with them most defiantly. Color on the shrimp were great bright yellow very nice with the black gravel.
