View Full Version : Shrimp and my sanity

I swear, these shrimp have taken the last bit of my sanity. I read that when the eggs turn brownish, their close to hatching. I feel as if I've been waiting FOREVER. I'm just ready to see some baby shrimps man!

On a side note, I have a ghost shrimp that is turning a reddish/brown hue. He's still clear, just his outer carapace is turning that color. Is this normal? Could he somehow have RCS genes?

I don't know how long it takes for their eggs to hatch, but it sounds like that one shrimp is ready to molt.

I agree, that's what it usually means when they molt they kinda change color. As for the hatching, the betta ate all of the eggs so we never got to see them hatch so I can't help with that one either.

Good luck though and hope to see lots of pics with the wee little ones!
