Hi everyone, I am having trouble spotting some of the berried females I had in the tank.

There were 3 of them, nice deep red that always hung out near the top of the tank/on the heater. They were berried and usually stuck together, which was kind of odd but I guess they liked that spot. I moved my tank over the weekend and had to move the heater. I have put it back in the same place but have not seen any of them there or even in the tank at this point.

Do they go into hiding to give birth? If so, how long? I do not see any babies runny around but I do see a what I think may be larger females but not berried.

Maybe the stress of moving the tank ..dropping to 50% water and moving their normal hang out area... caused them to drop their eggs early? If so wow that sucks, they have been berried close to 3 weeks.

Any ideas?

I have a ss filter cover. I do have some neon tetra and glow danio. So I am worried about then getting eaten. I have moss and hiding places. Some should live I would hope. Hopefully they did pop out and are just hiding in my moss/driftwood.

They're mostly being eaten, but a few are probably hiding in the bushes.
No fish other than otocinclus are safe for baby shrimp.
Yeah I figured as much. I had the fish before I knew more about shrimp. I am working to at least get rid of the danios. I read that after about a week of growth neon tetras have a hard time eating them.
