I have been looking around and cannot find these questions answered
1. how long do the shrimp stay berried? (Ived read 30 days but I have some that are at the 45 day mark now
2. What is the range of offspring each has?

#1 In my experience, it has indeed been around 30 days, I would expect temperature to play a large role? I don't know how much other factors like food, lights, water parameters etc. come into play. 45 days seems rather long.. are you sure it's the same shrimp?
#2 I would guesstimate 20-40 on average. Although, they don't usually manage to carry them all full term. I think a more realistic average is 15 - 30 actual hatchlings.
