Spent a little time examining the tank last night and what did I find ... that's right, a very tiny (about 3mm) baby cherry shrimp crawling on the floating anacharis.

I suspect this is from a hatching about a week ago that I was unaware of and I'm now wondering how many more of them there are that I didn't see.

This one was nifty looking. Enough pronounced red coloration already so that along with movement it was enough to help me spot it.

I'm hoping my photo-bug friend will bring her camera by and we can get some shots.

Yup 3mm is about a week old, its really hard to get good shots of them when they are so small though.

If you can get it near the front of the tank it will be much easier.
I would like to see the pics,but you already knew that!:19:

Very exciting! I kept Cherry Shrimp, and absolutely loved them!! It's so fun seeing the babies grow up. There are probably a good many of them in there. Congrats!
