Msheresy Same day I posted this, i moved the rcs to a nano tank. I had started with nine and to my delight, they were all accounted for. they are the sole occupants along with a large ball of moss. The berried mama is still berried and it doesn't look like she has dropped any. I can't wait for shrimplets!

somewhatshocked I recently (mid-November) moved 12 or so berried Neos to a new tank that had much different parameters.

Original tank had pH 7.6, KH 5, GH 14. Moved to a tank with pH 6.4, KH 0, GH 5.

No deaths, no one dropped their eggs. All are alive and well.

I usually drip for 45 minutes to an hour.

Betta Maniac A lot of people move their berried females so the shrimplets end up in the grow out tank rather than the main tank. I wouldn't worry about it at all.

Simplicity drip acclimate for 6hrs and you should be good. I took my berried PFRs from 6.5ph to 7ph. 120TDS to 250TDS without losing the clutch.

picotank I'm no expert but I would say move them or the fish. It took my cherries months to finally have some babies without droping the eggs all the time so chances are (if it's her first batch) that she'll drop em anyways. They will make more babies down the road which ever way you go.

Moving Red Cherry Shrimp

I purchased some cherry shrimp a few weeks ago and I put them in an established 10 gallon that has some scarlet badis and some black neons. I hate the neons and I'm going to likely get rid of them tomorrow. I've wanted to move the shrimp to a nano tank for now but I just noticed that the largest is a berried female (yay!) and now I'm not sure if I should move them. There is a good deal of moss in the tank but I'm sure my scarlet badis will hunt down shrimplets. If I move them will this cause too much stress on the berried female?

This is my first attempt at shrimp and I wanted to start with the easiest until moving on.
