Male shrimp losing their minds

Recommended Posts

My male RCS are swimming around like their lives depend on it.  The females are grazing in the gravel and showing no interest.  I assume a hidden female is molting and releasing hormones.  I´m surprised because I am battling high nitrites and it's a relatively new tank.

That usually happens when a female molts and is ready to breed, hopefully the nitrates aren't too high? The females do usually hide when molting as they are very vulnerable then!

I am still managing to keep my daphnia going so far, woohoo!

She has obviously molted, there is an empty exoskeleton in the tank. It's very exciting for first-timers

You might have a berried mama somewhere in the tank now!
