    Beautiful. So excited for you. These baby shrimp will acclimate to your tank better than the adults did.

    Cant you generally see eyes in the eggs before they hatch?

    Um I have never seen my RCS give birth before. The eyes every once in a while I can see them, but then the mother gets out of my view-.- Only have seen yellow and white eggs. But for ghost shrimp, I can see their eyes right before they come out! I have seen many of my ghost shrimp give birth in front of me. It's pretty cute how the mother kicks them off of her when they try to ride on her back lol.

    Lol. I could never get a video because I always loved watching them swim away. When I tried to get a video once she stopped giving birth until I put the camera down ugh.1

    Happily seeing this! =]

    PS, have you ever checked water qual? (GH/KH)

    My GH/KH I bought in a LFS said most inverts want 250+ ppm hardness. (Super hard)
