Abstract:

There is an evergreen demand for ornamental shrimps in the scope of planted aquarium or in dedicated aquaria this exponential growth in the demand needs a steady supply of stocks so the main objective of this research is to develop a standard hatchery technology for fresh water ornamental shrimps. An endemic species Indian White banded Shrimp, Caridina cf. babaulti was selected, as the documented information about the species is scare. Thus, this study was conducted to gather some information on its breeding behavior and life cycle until first maturity in laboratory condition.10 pairs of Indian White banded Shrimp, Caridina cf. babaulti are kept in confined system separately. The tanks are populated with common aquatic plants (Java fern Microsorum pteropus, Amazon sword Echinodorus bleherae, Anubias nana, Cryptocoryne sp., Rotala indica and mosses (java moss Taxiphyllum barbieri, Christmas moss Vesicularia montagnei) and regulated with periodic photoperiods and Co2 supply. With carefully monitored water quality parameters, the selected species was bred in confined system. It was observed that water temperature is one of the parameter that played a crucial role in influencing the spawning behavior of the species. Larvae assume a benthic lifestyle after hatching, i.e. they are miniature versions of the adults. There is no planktonic larval stage. The hatchlings of this shrimp are extremely small and grow slowly.
