Too happy?

I've had my SpecII running for a few months now. I bought a couple bumble bee and a couple "blue berry" shrimp from a LFS for a few bucks. A few days later I see the BB is berried. Well long story short they all jumped out and a few weeks later I've got 15 or so fry. Great I thought, but now I've got another mama in process. I don't need this many shrimp... Is there a way to keep them from breeding and still have them be happy?Click image for larger version

Sell the future babies or RAOK them here. Im sure any LFS would take them as well. I have noticed that breeding seems to be a priority for most shrimpers on this site

You can probably support a lot of shrimp in that tank without worrying about them being overcrowded or anything. let them breed at bit so you have a nice little colony, and if it get to be crowded looking (ascetically for you I mean) you can scoop or suction some out to give away or sell.
