Guys,

I've got my first female with a saddle but i don't know the process after this

Does this mean she has mated with a male?
How long from saddle to being able to see eggs?
My female is sakura grade but my male is not what will the babies look like?

Sorry if these questions seem basic

Thanks

Also I've noticed an increase in shrimp molts over the 72hrs

First you have to get some wine and some candles and lower the lights for them. Soft music doesn't hurt either........ LOL.

You don't have to do anything, let nature happen. If there is a saddle, she hasn't mated yet. Once the male and female mate, the eggs move from the saddle to under her rear legs in a matter of a few hours, so if you still see a saddle, the males hasn't gotten her yet and may not this time around. There is only a small window from when she molts that she is available for the male, otherwise it will have to wait till her next molt.

I've noticed another female with a saddle

My males are a lot younger than my females so I was not expecting anything this time round

I was wondering what the saddle means, and now I know! Thank you.
