Are male shrimp always more active then the females?
My males are always hovering around like Minnie helicopters
While my females are always just chilling doing their thing


Is this normal?

I can only say from experience for RCS that this is the case. The males will hover looking for food/females while most females will hide (until feeding time comes around). I believe it has to do with how the berried females store their eggs under their tail. This stops them from using their swimmers so they can only crawl when they are berried. Females will also hide more when they carry eggs.
