Female losing eggs

Recommended Posts

So I have a female that has berried twice and lost eggs both times. Suggestions?

What do you mean she's lost them? Dropped them completely, or in a molt?

Great photo, lots of eggs............ can't see any eyes in those eggs?

Do you have a male in the tank?

As crabby, what do you mean by losing eggs?

It seems like she drops them. There are several smaller and assuming younger males in the tank. I currently have 9 in a 10 gal tank. Lost 1 due to stress in the move.

Shrimps may drop eggs if they are not fertilised or when stressed out.

Assuming they are not stressed, the eggs may not be fertilised.

How long is she holding them before she 'drops' them? Are you sure she isn't just giving birth and the babies are dying? Because that's a different problem altogether.
