berried shrimp

When doing a shrimp count, I noticed 4 of my rcs are berried! At this point what should I do? The temp is at 72-74, should I raise or? Not feed as much?

You may want to separate if they are cohabiting with fish, otherwise leave them be a prepare to be a shrimp grandma/pa. Congrats

I agree. Don't do anything. The babies will be just fine. The hard part will be trying to find them. I can never find the little buggers. My wife always spots them but I tell her she is hallucinating. Lol. As long as they have places to hide they'll be just fine.

Kk. The shrimps only cohabit with some mts. Very excited to spot the first new born although It will be hard for me to find them
