I was reading about berried RCS and the website I read said that before the berries move down under the tail, they can be seen as a yellow or green spot behind the head. Is this correct?

I have a larger (female?) shrimp with a bright green spot at the back of her head and I am wondering if she is going to be berried! Or maybe I'm imagining it because of what I read.

That doesn't necessarily means that they will be berried soon, but is a good sign it might be about to happen.

The yellow/green spot on females you are talking about is called a 'saddle' and is part of the process of forming the eggs, which will then drop lower in the body when fertilized by a male.

- the white color not solid when pre berried, you can see the saddle)
- some of female and male will dance (swim surrounding the tank, searching for pre berried)
- the pre berried will meet some agresive shrimps
