Yes I do move my shrimps around, however I didn't have any CBS in this tank, other than the one Mischling black and NO female regular Crystal shrimps! I watch my tanks every day for signs of females being berried, and I count my shrimps to make sure everyone is accounted for in case I lose one or two (lost a red one a while back)
Here's the count 5 x BB, 5 x BKK, 3 x WR, 2 x CWB, 1 x Snow white and 1 black Mischling which I kept back after I sold off the other Mischlings back in the fall. Most of the above are all males. I have about 5 females (not sure about the 2 WR as its hard to tell with those two)
Only 3 females were ever berried since August when I put them in this tank. BKK, BB, and the CWB. Both BB and BKK mammas were put back after having their babies and neither one is berried again yet! Reason I moved them as I hoped the move would jump start them again (just seen a couple of molts this week already)
I put the CWB back into the tank before she released the eggs because I was afraid she might die in the breeder box, she didn't like it and kept trying to climb out...didn't want to lose her as I only have a pair of them.
She was still berried when I put her back in about a couple of days before her due date. Next time I saw her (about a week or so later) she was empty. Never found or saw any baby shrimps, and I haven't had any babies born or females berried in my high grade CRS/CBS tank across the room from this one, they're all too old and haven't been moved for months.
this baby is a mystery....Im hoping I find more of them, but maybe there is/was only one. Its about the same size age as my BKK babies so this is why I am thinking its probably one of the CWBs.
