Berries, one after the other

So I have noticed a week ago that one of my crs is finally berried! It took a long time but they must be comfortable now. About two days ago I noticed my pfr berried. So exiting. Haha I know this time of year is usually off season for breeding but for some reason my shrimp think the opposite. And this makes me happy. I will post pictures tomorrow guys my baby and fiancÚ are sleeping right now so all lights are off.


The crs eggs are deep red. Very pretty never seen anything like it before, I can't see the eyes because they are so red.

must....have.....more....moss n shrimp!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats. Eyes on the eggs generally don't start to show until the last week before the mother releases the eggs.

How many weeks does that take because she has been carrying the eggs for two in a half weeks tomorrow. There so deep of a red I wouldn't be able to tell if they have eyes or not I don't think.

And thank you!

Ok so I'm looking at a few more weeks then, haha. And I was thinking they were just going to pop and explode after two weeks, I lost track of her a few times and got worried she dropped the eggs but I find her after a while, same with my pfr,

I have a shrimp tank in my office that I finally stocked about a month ago. Two females are already berried. Guess my fishless cycle was successful.
