Sulawesi Cardinal

Recommended Posts

Got the opprotunity to take a shot for my berried Sulawesi Cardinal.

It was a challange to keep them alive . I am so happy to see them producing now.

Picture taken from my cell. Sorry for the poor quality.

Glad they have recovered - no more vacations for you!

Yeh! My vacation is a little long (almost a month). I had 9-10 batches of babies before I left. Upon my return, I did not see very many babies.

I am glad to see 2 berries now. Hopfully more to come.

Thank you!

Yes it was very exciting when I saw the tiny shrimplets moving around.

They were in a 5g tank. I thought I should move them over to a bigger tank so I set up a 20g with the exact water parameters.

After cycling, I move 10 over. I lost 2 and the rest were doing well. 2 weeks later, I moved all the rest over. Unfortunately, they started dying. It's been another 3 weeks now. I lost about 15. I haven't seen any death in the last 2 day so I hope the rest will survive. Luckily, I found there are 7 tiny shrimplets left in the 5g tank. I am leaving them there just those in the new tank don't make it.

I hope so too!

I am in the process of setting up a sulawesi tank - for white orchid shrimp - and hopefully, cardinals as well.

Do you use salty shrimp sulawesi 7.5 or 8.5 to remineralize?
