Pregnant Shrimp Update

So I probably should have mentioned it at the beginning of the week, but Momma Shrimp is pregnant again with her 4th batch of eggs. but today we saw that there are 2 other expectant mothers among the Blue Velvets.

Unfortunately a Red Cherry mother over in the Betta tank passed away this week, but as the cherries are only  really there to entertain Betta Ray Bill I'm not overly saddened by the loss. considering that at last count we have at least 17 shrimp in that colony that started out with just 7 we are up by more than 100%

The Blue Velvets are definitely about to hit that point where I need to move some into the new tank, or find new homes for some of them.

Still no new mothers among the Crystal Reds, but given a little time I think we will see one.

I haven't been able to get any good photos yet of the expectant mother shrimp, but I'll probably have some later this weekend.
