Hidden Gems by KK Lam

Today we are fortunate enough to be invited to one of the hobbyist house to visit his shrimp tanks. Lam is great guy and have started this hobby about 3 months back. Although a short period into this hobby, Lam have very good knowledge in rearing these pets as he have been an animal lover for many years.

Lam keeps a couple type of shrimps now, they are mainly Fancy Tigers, Pure Black Line, Pure Red Line, Blue bolts, Black King Kong and a nice three feet community tank. He enjoys watching these tiny critters grazing for feed, and as always, the best part of this hobby is to see your shrimps get berried.

He mentions that the surprises from crossing different types of shrimps together is very interesting. Especially shrimps of the tiger variant, they tend to have more different patterns and colors during cross breeding, and thus it is never boring to see the different offsprings that they produce.

As I would like to say, there is no ugly shrimp and every shrimp has it’s own beauty. He keeps all his cull shrimps into a three feet community tank to see what surprises he can get. Here we have more pictures of all his beauties!

Check out how much his shrimps love the alder cones. I must say that Lam have maintained his shrimp tanks very well as you can see good active activity from the shrimps and most of his female shrimps are berried.

We were actually here for this shrimp. This shrimp has a nice distinct yellow head with a little transparent white body. It looks very slick and is currently berried at the size of 1.6cm.

Here we have another shot of this piece! It is being housed in his three feet tank where he keeps all his cull shrimps to see what surprises he can have. Seems like Lam’s effort is paying off!

In this tank, Lam keeps all his black spotted pinto with his blue bolts, the shrimps are all growing healthy and most of them are berried. Lam keeps a decent amount of mosses in his tank so that shrimplets can hide in them away from danger. Good hiding spots can increase the survival rate of shrimplets as they can hide easily from danger.
