    Lol he's still alive and swimming. I went to feed them and saw this. He was on her back for a while then they stayed like this! Both gone there separate ways now

    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?????
