It is when the shrimp is carrying eggs under the tail as in the yellow eggs on this fire red shrimp.

I just hope I can get them to breed. My Cherries currently haven't breed for weeks. Also do Least Killifish eat baby shrimps?

most likely. you keep those with your shrimp? you better have a densely planted tank then so the shrimp babies can hide.
predation may be your problem.

Good thing I decided to put the Blues in a fish-free tank.

Also the 5.5g is densely planted (guess I should update my tank thread).

thats nice!
i'd use distilled water for the bowl if crystal black shrimp are going in. or do a mix of distilled and tap water to get a TDS of around 150-200. also go with low grade crystal blacks as those will do best in bowls.

i see.
I picked chocolate shrimp and tangerine tigers for my 20L that i recently bought/set up.
Though because of the acidic pH, my chocolate neos are taking their time with breeding. either that or i have no males.
