Cherry shrimp?

I have these guys males swimming around and there's this one female 3/4" getting away from them, although she grabs on something and upright, she just holds on and doesn't move her legs like instantly eating. Most of them are on the floor eating, including little ones. This female seems uneasy, is she in trouble? thanks

think she'll be fine... I sometimes have females swimming up and grabbing floaters too.
Haven't lost any shrimps so don't think it's sign of trouble... but I might be wrong ^^;;;

Sounds good. I also seen few males attacked the females underside, I think the males are trying to mate. I'm just surprised because the males are just 1/2" and females are 3/4". Are they breeding at this size?

My thinking has been invert-ed!
