@opae ula related is right, I also want to add that my baby shrimp tank when fed all flurry around and turn pale, maybe it's an age thing where they feel unsure or startled too easily and all go pale quick as opposed to the adults that tend to take a bit more unrest before they lose their colour.

My 3rd baby tank started to breed. I saw 2 berried shrimps today.

I took quite awhile to stable the tank and the shrimp color is more visible now.

Very addictive on getting another tank to start to keep babies and see them breed.
Should i?

2 of my big tank have about 120-150 shrimps. I'm afraid they are over crowded.

Just see how often the breed over the next 3 months, if you dont get much then you could always try a new tank? If you get lots of constant breeding then nothing to worry about!
