Ghost shrimp babies? Help!

peachsonas

I picked up a ghost shrimp on a whim for my tank. When I got home, I acclimated, drained the old water into a bucket and let my shrimp who I named Maurice into my tank.

Well, I think Maurice is a lady shrimp. Because as I was going to rinse out my bucket, I noticed some movement in there. Upon further inspection, I realized these must be babies. I can see their little eyes. Most of them are alive. Five or six little ones just swimming around right now...

What should I do with these guys???? I have a spare 2g??? Should I let them go in there?

Hi, If I were you I would keep them in the 2g until they are grown then add them into the main tank if possible. Congrats on the babies!

First question i ask myself about all aquatic babies...how fast do i want to need to get a new tank? I know shrimp are a little different story, but it is a good question to ask.
