Finally have my sulawesi dream!

Unread postby Abhishek » Fri Nov 20, 2015 6:44 pm

Hi All,

Finally been able to have my first sulawesi shrimps! I don't know how many years I have waited for them, how many setups I made, how many setups were ripped off due to frustration. In my tenure of shrimp keeping of 5 years, along with blue tiger, sulawesi are one shrimp which I was dying to lay my 'hands' on.

The below threads shows how much I have been eager to get them!

viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3785&hilit=sulawesi

This current system also was running for last 3 months and also after many importers promise that they will get me sulawesi shrimps, I started feeling disheartened again due to unavailability of them.

Lost hope on the importers, took matter on own 'hands' and finally landed them!

They are doing good as of now, but hiding when I am approaching the tank which is some how fine. So cant capture a proper image of them.

So as of now please check the video :)

One not so good video, but certainly one of the best and sought after shrimp I am keeping! They are still very much shy and hard to capture and also they are still juvies

A lovely sulawesi shrimp, people call it as starry night but generally known as white orchid.

Finally tasted a bit of success.

After 4-5 days came home and saw baby cardinal in my home.

What my sulawesi shrimp friend told me that they might be 2+ week old.

Sorry for the crappy video - clicked at 3x zoom on mobile phone.

Congratulations!

I always want to keep them but they need high maintenance so forget the idea.
