Stenopus pyrsonotus pair

Postby FuEl » Wed Oct 29, 2008 8:08 am

Could'nt find any photos of a pair of this species online...

Found a female today and put it with my male. They are now a pair. :lol:

Image

Female is on the left, male on the right. Notice the differences in colouration and the carapace. :)

Will I be trying to rear the larvae from this pair? I might..but I would be out of my mind to do so. :lol:

HI Junkai

What was the eventual result with those stenopus you reared here at JCU, i could swear one went to metamorphosis but i suspect died. i dont know how long it was though, What ever happened ot the rest?

Very cool looking shrimp. I have always thought it was cool the way you could see the ripening eggs inside the female. Very unique color.

Christian.. I never knew what happened to them...from what I was told none of them settled? It was frustrating rearing them, they never seemed to grow after 30 days.

DThom, I was lucky in selecting a female. It actually just kind of looked like the size a female would be, which was why I bought it. I had confirmation at home after acclimatizing the shrimp as I noticed it had some eggs attached. Looks like they were going to hatch but I'll skip them as such larvae usually don't do so well after all the shipping stress.

Nice shrimps,Junkai :D And you should try raising them!.For one thing,some Stenopus other than hispidus could be less dificult to raise.Supposedly J.Lin raised scutellatus,but Andy could tell us more about that :wink:

Well the female killed the male after a few days of getting along. My tank might had been too small. :oops: I worked with a friend on scutellatus but we never had any settlement on bbs alone. The larvae just got bigger like usual stenopus larvae without much dramatic morphological changes.

are you sure it was scutellatus and not the pacific golden banded shrimp, has blue legs?

They are a pain aren't they.

Junkai,

funny I had it the other way arround and have one male left - in 300 g. This shrimp is never to see in the light phase
Its ashame that there are so many miles / Kilometers to cover - we would have one nice pair of shrimps:D
Take care
Peter

Hi Andy, I have worked with cyanoscelis before so I do know the ones I had were scutellatus. They were shipped across from the U.S and they did'nt have blue legs. They did'nt come as cheap compared to cyanoscelis too. :P The larvae grew real slowly on NHBBS alone so I think some additional enrichment/live feed would be needed.

Peter, you mean you tried to pair the shrimps up in a 300g tank and the male killed the female? My female was in the tank first so that might have been why she became the killer instead. To think I tried to pair them up in a floor area of 2ftx1.5ft. :oops:

Junkai,
I purchased them together. But she had molting issues. Twice I could save her - once not ...
Take care

I'm interbreeding CBS from the Atlantic and Pacific at the movement. Normally if you get a male and female you get a pair. You know with in a few minutes if you have a pair or not. Also it seems that if you wait until the female molts, and put in the male in you instantly get a pair.

Yes,mating Stenopus involves placing two suspected to be a female/male couple separeted with eggcrate.Inmediately after the female molts,put them together,and watch closely.If the other shrimp was a male,he will try to mate with the female,stay close to her and thereafter,live together as a pair.If it comes to a killing game,you probably had two females.
This I´ve tried many times and should be a standard method por pairing Stenopus :wink:

And so I have gotten myself a new male. Males do seem to be less stocky and have a yellowish tinge to their claws. This guy is separated from the female for now by a floating basket. I will wait for the female to moult this time. Hopefully a successful pairing this time. I'll still be pairing them in a 2ft tank as I do not have bigger quarters besides my sump. :) Will I be trying to raise their larvae? I might try, since so far they are the only Stenopus species commanding high prices.

Came home today and found the male just beside the female. Apparently he escaped and now is in the same cave as the female. The female seems to accept him and does not exhibit any aggression, but interestingly shows some slight submissive behavior although she is larger. :shock:

You were lucky to find them in one piece! :P
I think they are the largest Stenopus sp?
