    So the darker redder one did what? And what did the bottom one do? Maybe they were cleaning each other lol. The top I know is a female.

    The female shrimp with the saddle stayed still, bottom one jumped on her back and then changed to this position and stayed for a minute, think they were mating

    The bottom one is male, while the top is the female. She looks to have eggs already. The ones I have ever seen mating in my tank always looked like this but who knows?????
