Hello all,

noticed this female cherry about week ago "berried" but just managed to get photo today.

We very excited to see shrimplets - but is it approx month for this to happen?

P.S

There is nothing better than a berried mum except new shrimplets. It can take up to 30 days from being berried but it also depends on your water temperature. Some say it can be as quick as 14 days if the Temperature is closer to 26 degrees my cherries were always about the 28 day mark at 23-24 degrees. just enjoy and wait don't go changing the temperature she will have them when they are ready!!! congratulations:encouragement:

Awesome work beginner, well done! :victorious: What Ineke said is correct, only thing there are drawbacks to hatching them at higher temps, it's recommended to keep your tank at 23-24, as already mentioned :encouragement:

This is good news. This means you have plenty of time to prepare your quick dance when you see your shrimplets for the first time. Some choices are moonwalk, running man, human robot or if your lazy just punch the air.

Do you have any videos of yourself to demonstrate the specifics of the individual dance moves?

Congrats beginner!

If it's just a matter of lowering the heater temp or removing the heater, lower the temp to 23-24. However, come summer don't panic if the temperatures get higher. There's no need to buy a chiller for cherry shrimp. Mine survived Townsville summer (29+) :)

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.

      Very wise as once they start breeding your population may sky rocket anyway, as they have with the CBS! I'm sure you should get some really nice surprises/colours when they start cross breeding too! Simon

      I will stick with the present shrimps, give it another month or so before I add some more shrimps.

      More fantastic pictures love the blue shadow panda and the 2 red pinto galaxy. Great to hear all is going so well! If you have a lot of CBS then they will breed when they are old enough so losing the 'mother' isn't too bad at this stage and they only love max 2 years anyway. Glad you still have 2 blue bolts as well - those will probably be my next purchase when they are in stock? The putting spinach in my tank has brought a few of my shrimps out but bizarrely they aren't touching the actual spinach? Seen 2 black and 3 red (of the 8 total I bought) so far today? Simon

      update my new tank is becoming stable, the shrinps are growing, I have seen many of the shrimps shread it's shell.   My old tank is infested with black CRS, but the mother had just died yesterday, I still have two blue bolts and a few CRS.
