A Fourth berried? Or well at least very soon. It seems all the males are in a frantic trying to find her. Sorry about the poor quality video but I have never seen this before. Literally all of the males were trying to find I am sure a freshly molted female. Wonder who will be the lucky one lol. www.youtube.com/watch?v=udsU4kZgmOo

So excited for you! For some reason I hadn't even put two and two together that three of my berried right now are from the same mom as the ones you have... Two of those three have smaller clutches, but one of them is absolutely loaded, lol. Hope yours are better first time moms than mine are looking to be

The big momma is pregnant again, but it's near impossible to tell because she is so opaque all the time. I guess that's a good thing though?

My first berried one is the biggest one. She is loaded with eggs. The other two are not as full of eggs but still pretty good. Have yet to see the 4th but assume so as The males have slowed down so maybe one got to her? Still all new to me so not sure. That's cool that they came from the same mom. She sure has helped to expand the species that's for sure . Make sure and tell her myself and her offspring all said hi and thank you lol. She has now started and kept going many colonies. Pretty cool. Will try and see if I can spot the newest one later on.

Yeah, the bigger ones were a different group. I think there were at least 3 generations I sent. There were three that all had given birth right around the same time, so hopefully you got a decent mix of genes. The goal is to not inbreed too much, and that's why every year or two you'll want to add more from another stock.

When that time comes, I'd recommend setting up a new tank, breed them, then move the babies into your existing, then tear down / reuse the new tank. Helps prevent diseases and also gets healthier stock into your colony. Takes longer, but totally worth it.

Very nice dude. Hopefully my tank will fill out as nicely as yours has in the next couple months. Grats on all the berried shrimp, too. Exciting stuff!

Well I think all the shrimp will be well fed. Have a great variety of food for them now. Thank you @Aqua99 you truly rock man. I only had the Ken's veggie sticks and Shrimp King Baby and got the rest from Aqua. Also got plants from Aqua so some great new additions to the CRS tank.

Once again the males are in a craze searching for a freshly molted female. Cannot believe I will have 5 berried CRS out of a total of 20 crs in this 20 gallon tank. That is if a male can find her which I am sure one will. The first berried CRS should be having her babies soon. Will be cool to see some tiny babies in this tank.

Well was only able to see one as only looked for a couple minutes before I had to leave. Saw one of the babies. Never knew they were this tiny. You can see barely by the tip of the stem of the alder cone. Gives you an idea how tiny they are. Sorry about the bad pic but best I could get. Will try to get more tonight when I get home.

In one of your photos it looks like there are Hydra. Could these pose an issue for the baby shrimp?

Those do indeed look like hydra and they ARE a problem for baby shrimp! Easily killed by Fenbendazole though, which is shrimp/plant safe

Appreciate the concern and agree which is why I took care of it a few weeks ago when I first noticed to prevent any issues that could be caused by them. Fenbendazole sure does the trick.

Keep using that bacterAE! I also have been using grains of pollen to help with survival rate. Might want to take a look into that as well. But be cautious where you buy yours from as pesticides in hives ect ect. I personally bought mine from https://marksshrimptanks.com/. Maybe I do not need to be cautious but I know too much on bee keeping in the US to not. I just had to dose with Fenbendazole and worked out great. Only draw back was the dead snail removal. Looks like your tank is doing great! Always enjoy watching this thread.

Yup I alternate between Bacter AE and Shrimp King Bio Tase Active(you may want to look at that one also). Since been doing that keep getting berried one after the other. In fact this morning saw another fresh molt and all the males were in another craze and in fact still are. I actually got a sample of some pollen a while back when I bought some shrimp food(never heard of it for food before). Looked it up then and saw how good it is. I've actually gotten the snail population greatly reduced. Certain food the snails craze to. I always feed in a dish for easy removal of the food and TONS of snails. The snails go right in my 60 gallon to keep the Clown Loaches happy lol. How is your shrimp tank doing?
