So one of my mommas finally dropped last night, 34 days in. So far I have been able to count 15 just from her and I imagine there are many more I have not seen as they hide in the hc big time! My second lady is starting to drop her's as I write this. Such a happy day, all these babies and I found out for sure today that my son will finally be coming home tomorrow morning after spending the first month of his life in the icu. So so happy with all this. Will be interesting to see how many more will come from the second mom and the other two mom's that are due next week. Who said first time moms do not hold their clutches full term:-)
Well the momma who just had them last night must be about to molt as she is the only female in the tank who is not prego. These guys are going nuts dancing around. She doesn't even get a full 24 hours to relax. Shrimp must be happy guess that proves everyone wrong who said two 20% water changes a week was to much ;-) http://vimeo.com/62386117

Just thought I would update, it's been a week maybe two weeks and there are still a ton of them alive and growing like mad! There are ATLEAST 20 of them in there, atleast that's how many I can count at one time. There are enough where I can get 2 in a pic at one time.
They almost look like tibees when they are this small, really awesome looking.
And finally my son is just in love with them. We put our rocking chair right in front of the tanks and he will just stare for hours it seems.
Lol thanks Bryce! I ordered him his first aquarium, one of those 12" cubes Frank was selling. Thinking he will really enjoy some tb's and tibees right next to his crib. You know how babies like pretty colors haha.
Congratulations on both counts! I'm new to shrimp, but not babies... got 8 of those under in our family. Can't tell you how happy I am your little guy is home with you and your wife now. Looks like you're off to a great start.
