Title says it all. Just seen 2 of my ghost shrimp, after having them in there a little over a week, are already berried! lol.

Indeed. And I actually just seen another one berried as well, so that brings us up to three. I also have a pregnant swordtail, and 2 neons that are possibly about to lay eggs (I'm basing this solely off of the fact their getting fat? lol). My water must be just right or something.. lol

eggs are yellow circles on the lower part of the body.

yes, but i don't think well your pleco should not eat them on purpose but might suck them up on accident. at any point you can keep them. shrimp like places to hide.

Congrats! Do we call you grandpa now??? ;)
I'm hoping I can finally make my way to my LFS and pick up the last of my plants and some red cherry shrimp. I've wanted shrimp for so long. I feel like it adds another layer to an aquarium.

I may be the youngest grandpa in history if so! haha. I would like to eventually get some RCS. Considering the short lifespan of ghost shrimp, that may happen sooner rather than later lol.
