berried shrimp


When doing a shrimp count, I noticed 4 of my rcs are berried! At this point what should I do? The temp is at 72-74, should I raise or? Not feed as much?

You may want to separate if they are cohabiting with fish, otherwise leave them be a prepare to be a shrimp grandma/pa. Congrats

I agree. Don't do anything. The babies will be just fine. The hard part will be trying to find them. I can never find the little buggers. My wife always spots them but I tell her she is hallucinating. Lol. As long as they have places to hide they'll be just fine.
