    I just woke up today to find my berried shrimp dropping little ones!!!! I could see a few of the ones she already dropped beside her, and the rest were very spread out on her and she was moving them rapidly. I could also see some of the tiny black dots "eyes" on some that were not dropped yet. I'm hoping I can see her actually drop one soon.

    I wish I could have, but had to leave.

    At least you were lucky enough to see them! My shrimp don't seem to like me seeing them do it, as I've never seen them have the actual birth.

    I don't cull, so it will be interesting to see what they turn out looking like, since the momma has little to no red in her. I do have another momma that is really red whose getting close to having hers too.

    And believe it or not, I came home to the redder shrimp having her babies...on the same day!
