Love for big berries?


I just love seeing girly shrimp with big berries, as much as it might be a pain for them. It just makes me so excited to see one way shrimp show the quality of the care they receive. And they always get me wondering what the next generation will look like (probably dinner for some of the fish in my shrimp tank...)

Anyone have some pics they feel like sharing?

Looks like a mystery snail dropped a clutch on the back of that shrimp!

I've actually had several shrimp get this size of berry, although smaller is more common.The last time I had one this big it was a pretty dark blue velvet girl, and she only released a couple days ago. No sign of babies though.

Stuck my hand in the tank to remove some plants that had bba and this girl who I have been watching all month grow a saddle jumped on me to see what I was. She's got quite a lot of eggs.

Most of my females will come check me out if my hands in the tank. It's quite a funny feeling when they start to try and eat off my hand.
