Has anyone had any luck raising harlequin shrimp?

This was our second batch. There were hundreds of them but they all disappeared within a day or 2

I nice I recall reading about some success with them in a FAMA article...many moons ago. I haven't really heard of much since.

I had a pair a while back and kept the fry alive for 4 days. I was using live phytoplankton and cultured water from a very good aquatics store. Flow was from a sponge filter, so very low. I think my problems were due to low temps. I only got two shots because the pair died during a move.

We did it

We succeeded in raising over 500 harlequin shrimp from 1 egg release

That's like the Daytona Bike Week of shrimp right there! I'd love to learn more.

Pretty easy to pair up, females are usually bigger with colour pattern on pleopods. Males are skinnier and have white pleopods.

Collection of larvea and feeding larval shrimp to settlement is the hard part.
