so yeah... THAT is one long time for a shrimp to be berried!

After 6 weeks she went into hiding for about 3-4 days and came out not berried anymore. Never saw any shrimplets.

Well, apparently I spoke too soon!

After weeks of not seeing any babies, today I see 5 babies in the tank!

They are about the size of half grown cherries. I tried to get some pics, but everything is blurry so far.

Something interesting to note, although I have pvc in the tank, the male has chosen to dig out a burrow under the hair algae (that I've used instead of moss). Don't crays do this, too?

Yea the cray that I caught and kept did the same thing. I supplied him with some pieces of slate to create a burrow under. He made a really neat cave!

Thanks Clemsons2k. I think they may act a lot like crays, but without the plant eating.

They certainly look closer to crays than shrimp to me

I figure the natural selection that gave them those claws and the desire to be predatory, was probably similar to what crayfish underwent.

I didn't think about that, but makes a lot of sense.
