Hello to all.

I've just finished my small system to play with some larvae and i was wondering if anyone has any feedback with Saron species ? Is it possible, how many zoeas ... is it true to sex the shrimps the first pair is greater in extent or is there any other hints.

My lfs has some available and i was thinking in getting a few to give a try.

Thank guys. I forgot this thread so sorry for the late reply.

Currently i'm with in a project always travelling around, so my girlfriend gives me a hand in taking care of things while i'm away. Currently in London.

I'm still waiting for some larvae (i'm getting a lot of larvae from different species besides this - Thor amboinensis - 3 female have eggs - hermits and lysmata sp - but no Saron sp )

MY system is an integrated larvae rearing system based on Calado et al method, and some modifications around the tanks and so on... when i have time i will be posting some pics.
