Hi Everybody,
I noticed my really pregnant cherry shrimp is always hiding. She's been carrying the eggs for about three weeks now. If she's hiding so much does that mean the eggs are gonna hatch VERY soon?

Hi piggy,
You will see the shrimplets if the eggs are hatched. But if your tank with other fishes. Then the fishes might eating the shrimplet.

Cherry shrimplet will be in red also. Try to pay more notice on mosses or tank glass wall. Is your tank with any fishes? Or just shrimp tank?

It's shrimp only.
I have some shrimplets in there now, from another female. I'm pretty sure it's cherry shrimplet because i had three pregnant cherries at that time.The shrimplets are clear in color.The babies were clear. I thought it takes some time for them to be red.
