Hi Everyone,
I'm just wondering how long will it take Cherry and Red-Nosed shrimp eggs to hatch?

I think between 20-30 days in general. My Tiger shrimp eggs hatch after 24 days at 23-25C.

Does temperature affect it?

I think the ideal temperature is between 22-26C. Lower temperature slows down the egg developments whilst higher T speeds it up a bit. I generally keep my shrimp tank at 24-25C. As they come from water temperature between 10-26C, try not to keep them over 26C!

Here is one of my tiger and cherry:
