Babies!!!

Yay!! After almost two years of having cherry shrimp, I have just seen the first babies! I counted 6 - 8, hard to tell as they're in some dense plants. My son is over the moon as they're in 'his' tank. We had pretty much given up on babies, so its a good day in this house!

Took you two years to get it right eh? (I wonder which of your shrimp lived to be 2)

Congratulations!

Thanks! AVN, I restocked with a few here and there. There was a betta, so I figured he was eating the babies, but after he passed, I thought for sure there would be some. I had given up. There would be no new cherry shrimp. Very happy to see some babies!
