Apologies for the lousy quality but she's rather shy so I had to crop a noisy iso1600 shot.

Is this a pregnant shrimp or not?

It looks like a bunch of eggs under her tail. I would venture a guess that she is pregnant.

They need dark to survive, or else they keep slamming into the glass to get to the light. you might want to put her in a different container with a heater and a sponge filter to help them along til they get bigger:thumb:

Awesome Berried/pregnant Bee!

You are very fortunate!

Have spotted any babies yet?

I am picking up some of those tommorow with the hope of a similar success!
I'll be lucky if they survive the long shipping journey.

Congratz!
