    Question CRS Gestation Period Exceeding 31 days

    I have a CBS berried female and it's been carrying eggs for 31 days by tomorrow now, in my books that's really long even at 21-22c... What do you think?

    It is normal.
    The lower the temperature, the longer it takes.
    My CRS took about 29-30days to give shrimplets in a tank of 24-25.5c.

    I have a CRS female carrying eggs since 22.3.2012 my tank is 23 degrees. Yesterday i.e.22.4.2012 she was still carrying the eggs. But the eggs color has changed since last week from reddish to pale white.
    She seems to be getting sluggish and moves around slowly.
    Today I did not see her may be she's hiding or just tired moving about the tank.
    I think she'll have babies this week.

    ....lazy?
    No, she is trying to be a silly cow in order to break world record.
    Mine was berried on the 14.03 and gave birth on 13.03(30days) and my temperature is higher than yours and hence it is possible to be a few days later.

    The only scary part was when I saw her moving around with 3 eggs hanging out, basically dragging them.(most probably gone case for those 3 eggs).

    My mistake I saw her with eggs on the 16.3.2011 thursday so yesterday it was exactly 30 days.
    Today morning she's still carrying the eggs. The temp. in my tank is 22 degrees now.
