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.

Congrats! It happens so quickly. Whatever you do, don't blink! *sits and stares at tank for hours with dry eyes* xD

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.

Congratulations!!!

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.
