One of my females is carrying 3 or 4 eggs. Is this normal? How long do they normally take to be carrying a whole clutch?

Would you be able to post a pic of your tank and one of your shrimp? Just wondering how you counted 3 or 4 eggs....

Yup, I counted them because they're the little orange spheres being carried under he saddle and fanned by her legs

what are your thoughts?
I'm on mobile so I'm struggling posting pictures. My thoughts on the thread is that I don't see where my answer is? All I see is them answering about how long it takes for the eggs to hatch and shrimplets to appear. Am I misreading?

Here's my tank if this works

Here's the berried shrimp. Its nearly impossible to see the eggs in this picture unfortunately

All I know is that there is definitely 3 eggs. The eggs are yellow circles right? I don't know why there is only 3 but there is

Okay, I just think it's weird that she's only carrying 3 when they normally carry a whole bunch. Maybe it's her first batch or something

I just had one berried with 1 egg... I confirmed it too when she molted and left the egg on the shell.

That's so interesting. I wonder if its more common or rare

Seems like it varies for me.
Most are fairly bursting with eggs, but some have half that much.
I've usually assumed that the ones with few have already released some or released some bad eggs.

I'm also pretty sure that some just don't produce a large bunch every time.
Maybe water condition and nutrition can be a factor as well as age and size.
This girl has quite a clutch though she's not as big as some of mine.
The reddish girl is superfat hard to see though
