I've had mine re-berry 3 weeks after having a clutch (2 molts basically). Had a golden just reberry after two weeks off.

It really depends, the stage in life of the shrimps and if they are getting enough nutrient. In the same tank, I have females that would consistently get berried within three days of releasing babies for like 3 or 4 times, then stop for a month, then do the same again. While some other females in the tank would take 1 - 2 months between berries. Like human too I guess, some just don't get pregnant easily.

do you think it depends on the time of year as well? i have some females in my tank with no saddle i believe. some have also not had a molt in a while, is there a way to induce a molt? how often should they be molting?

They molt when they grow. So water changes and feeding will defiantly help!
