Razorworm Weird thing is, there was nothing but water in the bag with the shrimp. I drip acclimated them and then netted them into their new home. It has been two weeks today since they went in. If one was berried, could the eggs have hatched and the baby shrimp reach this point in developement so quickly?

pinoyghost2 Amano's don't have live babies (have larvae)...either one of your cherries was berried and hid until she gave birth or you got a few tiny babies in the plants/moss that came in the bag if any, they have a habit of hiding in moss. Either way that's a nice baby cherry shrimp

Razorworm HAHA I was about to PM you. These are for sure not scuds and look just like shrimp.I saw one swimming, swims like a shrimp. Quacks like a duck.... My night cycle just started and I lost light. Mine colored up great too. real happy. I cant wait for morning. Crays are doing well too. I think they are Dwarf Cajuns

There are scuds in the tank but these guys look exactly like shrimp, in fact one of them has some red coloration. Should I get the champagne or not????
Might be a bit soon for the Shrimp if these are from our team visit to the GCCA Swap. Of course you could of had a berried up girl in your bag. Scus do tend to zip around a lot more than baby shrimp. I'd keep feeding up close to the glass so you can see them better.

Mine colored up nice, I'm happy with them.
