hi, i had my first berried shrimp last night and i am concerned because last night when i was taking pictures of it the egg clutch looked much bigger than when i looked at it again this morning. is this common or is there something wrong with my shrimp

my water perameters are

temp 76*
ammonia 0
nitrites 0
nitrates 0
GH 12

i am not sure of my TDS i am supposed to get my meter in the mail in the next week or so.

is it possible that the eggs are the same but more compact?

i will post pictures once i find out how.

thank you for reading

She may have just dropped some of the eggs. My last two females dropped ALL of their eggs almost immediately. :( First time mothers and all that jazz.
