I find it's always best to put berried shrimp in a breeder box so she can hatch her young. Then let the babies get large enough in the breeder box that they won't be eaten before releasing them into the tank. A bit of a hassle but worth it for these great fish.
the problem is 13 out of 14 of my shrimp are VERY VERY berried! Not to mention another 9-14 babies in there now (where they came from who knows). My tank is heavily planted and while i love my shrimps, i wanted some fish too ... what i'm going to do with all these shrimp is besides me!
hmm... i don't know anything about breeder boxes and in a 6 gallon tank i can't add one to the tank, it's too small.. and with 3 other 2 gallon tanks my husband will kill me if i add another tank!
