Thread: Shrimp Eggs!

  1. #1

    Talking Shrimp Eggs!

    0 Not allowed!
    One of my cherry shrimp is carrying eggs!

    Should I do (or avoid doing) anything whilst one has eggs?

    How long until they hatch?

    How do I make sure they don't get sucked into the filter? It's a very gentle Dennerle Nano sponge filter.

    Ooooooo...this is an occasion to get the macro lens out.

    When I had RCS I just let them do their thing, The strong survive and the others are snacks.

    IIRC the gestation period is about a month They breed really easily so no special care is required IMO/E
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Wow, ok a month. I might have Christmas babies then.

    Something must really be in the water at our place because my peppered cories have covered my tank in eggs! The barbs are well fed now!
