The second batch of babies is starting to appear. I think won't be long now for the swarm. The mamas seemed to get berried at about the same time.

There is only one larva left to mature. It's too bad juvies like to hide so much. I've been wanting to trim back that hair algae forest but didn't want to risk it with all the larvae in there before.

I was very paranoid about losing baby shrimp when i removed alot of the hair algae first time around but i too waited until they were big enough to see clearly. Nice photo!.

That's one food I've never tried, great to see another option to feed them.

Well now. Just as the juvies have started to come out to play consistently, we got a couple of new young mothers in the tank.

After 9 months since the migration to the 10 gallon, I was removing some algae from the old aquarium only to discover one last shrimp in there! I left it running with the ato and heater but have not fed it in over half a year. That's crazy stuff. I was able to net him out to have him join the rest of the gang.
