I saw one of my female kick the babies out with her swimmerettes. It (the baby) sank to the gravel and was twitching. I've been expecting to see little shrimps crawling around the bowl but I haven't seen any. Are they dormant for a few days before they are developed?

Ummmmmm...they're really really small when first "hatched". It would be very difficult , if not next to impossible, to see them in tank. You have them in a bowl?? Clear? White? They newborn cherries are going to almost 100% transparent, making them almost impossible to view. But they grow fast!! If you got them in a bowl, maybe you can make out a little "twitching" movement and I'm talking littleeeeeeeeeeee. Oh ya, no, they aren't dormant. They are just the tiniest versions of their parents. Try looking in the bowl with a magnifying glass.

the 2 gallon bowl is well planted.. So it's next to impossible to spot them then.. Yes, I noticed that they're transparent. I was hoping to see them on the plants. It's hard enough to find the adults... Do you guys feed you excess shrimps to the fishes?

I finally saw one... Holy cow they're small. They're literally is the size of a flea.. maybe smaller. It's hard to see if they're fully formed when they're that small... and it's gray.
