Rob the berried shrimp in #367 is she from Texas? If yes that puts her at a minimum of 26 days. Based on the eggs looks like a week to go. Nice pictures. Using the cell phone macro?

No, she's one of my home grown "pregnancies", first noticed on January 14th. The one from Texas is in the 10 gallon tank.

Photos taken with my cell camera zoomed in. Just recently received a closeup lens. Not positive if any photos using it have been posted.

One of the bookshelf mamas using the new closeup lens. It would rather focus on the algae on the tank...

If you look carefully you'll see eyes and some tails. Seems they're hatching and hanging tight to Mom:
