Well I have a shrimp tank that all my shrimps were going nuts in.... But i found three female with eggs so i figured out what was going on. All so how ofter well they have baby's? As i keep ending up with tons of little ones in a tank that I'm trying to take down. No big females in it.. Just some younger midsize ones left...

One male can impregnate the all the females in one tank.

So, very often.

This is a "good" problem to have. Many people have difficulty trying to get their shrimps to breed at all.

I'm one who struggles to keep a healthy breeding population... *especially* if it's a Neo.... ah well. I haven't delved far into Caridina either.

 

It usually takes about 3-4 weeks for eggs to hatch. They can get berried up right after their eggs hatch and they molt.

      I was talking about letting pure RO water sit around for too long unused.  Try not to do it.
      RO water that has been remineralised is different.

      Oops did I mix them around?   <edit> - I did mix the names around. Fix it now in my post above.

      Ok then. Will add more plants to try and reduce nitrates.  Thanks Simon and JayC for the pointers and hints. I think the Dino Spit is the Glutaraldehyde and the Dino Pee has the macro and micronutrients. I will leave off the Glutaraldehyde and reduce the dose of the Pee to one third. I am pretty careful with the dosing.  Good news is that there are at least two RCS females still in the tank and looking well. Maybe they went and hid and moulded after the big water change? The surviving  DAE are all looking well.  Anyway will take all your advice on board and do smaller water changes and work out a dripper system.

      jayc's comments on letting remineralized water sit around got me thinking.  I've had pre-mixed up batches of water sitting around for a month or more with no obvious growth.  I asked the Salty Shrimp people about this, but unfortunately they replied back to me in German, and google translate doesn't seem to work too well.  So if anybody knows German, here is their reply: " prinzipiell ist es kein Problem dein mit Bee Shrimp GH+ aufgesalzenes
      Osmosewasser zu lagern, jedoch werden dabei einige Spurenelemente
      verloren gehen. Dies hat sich bei unds allerdings noch nicht als negativ
      herausgestellt, da wir selbst meist eine Menge von ca. 1000l aufgesalzen
      parat haben. "
