ID my shrimps!! also berried rcs (or orange sunkist) dropped an egg? (VIDEO)


got bored and made a video, looks like one of the eggs fell out at 1:05 anyone know why this would happen? sorry about the blurryness...it was hard to keep focus with the macro lens.

also what kind of shrimp is at 2:52. I got these as rcs from someone local but they all look slightly different.

That shrimp in focus at 2:52 is a male sunkist. They have less color than the females and the underside is curved up instead of down.

Nice shrimp. New mothers often time lose eggs. The newer ones drop their whole sacs sometimes.
