I have a new colony of pumpkin shrimp that had two berried females. This is the first time they've been berried and yesterday I noticed a cluster of eggs dangling on the sponge filter. It looks like one of my females has just dropped them all? Is this normal? I didn't see any molts, but I know it could have already been eaten. I'm aware that they newbies can fumble a few eggs, but dropping the whole clutch??
Its quite normal as they are inexperienced and the next time they are burried they wont drop any. Sometimes it can be them being stress or it got stuck in some moss but for the most part its quite normal and you should not worry.
I wouldn't completely count on that. Although it may seem like she dropped her eggs, they may have hatched and you cant see them and the thing on the sponge filter is something else? Just trying to think optimistically!
