Wow those are HUGE clutches of eggs as well! At least everything came along very nicely while you were playing Skyrim haha. Maybe go play a different game (like the Zelda game for Wii) and then when you return the babies will be everywhere :P

And yesterday when I was doing plant stuff, one of the shrimp landed on my hand and started cleaning me, haha it was so cute xD
Did you stay still and let it eat your skin for a while :P?

LOL yea

I've been debating on setting up the little breeder box and separating one of the females before she has her eggs and just putting my 2 male CBS in there but I don't know if that would stress them too much. I think I'll have a max of 4 berried shrimp soon though!

Yep that shrimp sat on my hand for like 2 minutes before he swam off !

It generally doesn't make a huge different with CRS/CBS breeding among each other. But if you wanted to make sure you'd have to keep a saddled female in there for a while. But you'd only need one male with her in the breeder box.

Got pictures of all the berried females! When should I expect shrimplets running everywhere?

Should take ~30 days for the shrimplets to be born! That's a really full load on the mom too !

Awesome! On a side note I just picked up vase from walmart... not quite a gallon but about 0.7g, might make it into a shrimp bowl and by then I'll have some extra shrimp to stock it with I have the tiniest little piece of driftwood for it as well.

Hm... not sure if the CRS/CBS will like such a small volume of water. 0.7g is really small ._.

There's only going to be a few, mostly for keeping the plants clean - it does have a nice area though. ACTUALLY....my guess wasn't right xD just measured and found out its actually 1.7 gallons, waaaay more than it looks! I fail at estimations.

1.7g will be pretty good as long as you keep the heat consistent

Love the tank I just ordered an ebi for my bee shrimp I am excited.

Congrats on the eggs but don't expect many to survie with those tiny hunters in the tank. I tried to keep a pair of sparkling gouramis with cherry shrimp it did not work. I never saw babie. I did see the gouramis nip at adults and hunt in the HC. Mine pestered the shrimp so much that I never saw them come out of hiding. A while after I took the gouramis out I started finding Babies and my shrimp were out in the open swimming much more.

It was too bad because my sparkling gouramis did really well they bred for me and I had free swimming fry. But they just could not leave the shrimp alone so I had to pick save the shrimp.

Hope your little guy is better then mine. It looks like a male in both photos.

80gal planted Angelfish community.
100gal SA cichlid, Silver dollar, and delhezi. No plants!
36 gal Planted Swordtail community.

They've been really good with the shrimp though O.O
No nipping they just kinda stay around the surface and eat the tiny baby snails that were invading for a while. If they have issues I have another tank they can move to.
