I was told shrimp mulitiple fast but this is something else! I turned the light on this morning and the entire back of the glass was covered with new fry just from yesterday. I have them everywhere of every size and it looks like I am getting a new batch daily.

Neither. I just started with 20 of them about a month ago in a planted 20 gallon. I can't began to count them now. I drop in an algae pellet for them about twice a week.

For some reason, I'm not seeing as many males as I did before. The ones I do see must be very happy having so many girlies to pick from. Looks like something from Warren Jeffs compound.

I wish mine would do that. I have several saddled females, but no eggs.
