I just noticed tonight as I was in the middle of doing a water change that my CRS had babies. I was really surprised because I just really noticed that I had a few berried females so I didn't expect any babies for a month or so. I just pray that they do good. They are so cute. They look just like the adults in color. I'm use to RCS where the babies are more white and then get their color as they get older.

I just wanted to share my good news with you guys :) :thumbsup:

There is no way I can get a picture of the little one I saw. My camera is not good enough. If it decides to land on the driftwood right in front of the glass I may be able to but even then it won't be easy. It's very small. I keep looking around to see more but so far I haven't. I have allot of moss in this tank so they could be anywhere.
THanks

Congrats! :)

I've got my shipment of CRS coming in on Wednesday and I'm pretty excited, can't even imagine how cool it'll be once they breed.

Your really going to love these shrimp I sent you. I think I put a few with eggs. I sent some near hinomaru, and a few hinos with your Package. When you first get them they will be clear for a few hours. I put some really white ones in the package.

Congratulations on the babies:biggrin: You will not be able to grade them until they become about half an inch, until then enjoy watching them grow.

Be sure to share your experience with your expected CRS and post some pictures please:icon_smil

You can grade them a month after they are born or sometimes sooner. Aleast I can. Now with my High grades like Hinomaru, I cant tell if the are Full stop signs or no entry.
