Hi! I have some Indian Whisker shrimp, aka Kuncho River prawns. Two were berried, one is still berried for sure and there are a bunch of little larvae floating around all over the aquarium.

The adults hang at the bottom. The cylinder is quite tall - 20" tall so the larvae can float around mostly out of reach or in the java moss and water sprite.

I'm not sure how many there are. They were discovered yesterday afternoon and today I was able to get a somewhat decent image.

I'm not sure what to feed these guys? There is still a berried female with green eggs (I read somewhere they will hatch after they become clear). So there are more in my future if this batch doesn't work out.

Very cool!

I'd go with finely crushed fish food. Be careful not to feed so much water quality suffers.

These shrimp seem more carnivorous than cherry shrimp, so the baby foods meant for them might not have enough protein.
