I noticed that the eggs on my shrimp are hanging loose, should I be worried about it? 🤔

I don't think you need to worried. Mine were hanging loose a week+ before they were released. I have 11 small ones now swimming healthily :sidesmile:

Sometimes they will get dropped and sometimes they get scooped back up an carried again. All you can do is sit back and wait at this point and dont worry its nothing you have done its just one of those things and usually happens with 1st time berried females frequently. Keep us all updated with your progress though!! :smile:

I have seen it when its just hanging out but not when they are strung along at quite some distance from her body (like being dragged over rocks etc)

Got it. I misread, I thought you meant they dropped off and carried back.
