I’m pretty sure I just caught my neo shrimp mating! I moved one of my males into this tank and he immediately mounted a female! I also see a molt, so it must’ve been the female saying she was ready for babies!

Hopefully that was it. But tell me why would you be moving shrimp around. I have found that they are pretty sensitive to no I g from tank to tank unless they two tanks are exactly the same.
I am not trying to toss the wet blanket on anything but in the interest of others reading this. IMO the stress of moving a shrimp could be fatal. Hope it was a Mating and you will be blessed with many more shrimp

I am putting the tank that they were previously in away soon, so I had to move them. I drip acclimated all of them and did my best to make it as smooth as possible.
