    Crystal Red Shrimp babies finally !!

    I have had 6 adult CRS for approximately 6 months now and finally today I seen babies! One of the females had been berried for a month now and I was starting to think something was wrong as it was taking so long for babies to appear, so I was pleasantly surprised to see babies today :)

    Congrats!!!
    That is always exciting.
    It's so cool to see the babies, and how they are a tiny replica of full grown shrimps.
    I also feel that the time that's stated on several pages, is way too little.
    A month is about right, has been for more or less all of ours, and we've had quite a few.

    Yeah I had read 3 weeks online. My neo's seem to hatch a bit sooner but my cardinia took much longer than Im used to. Could also be the differences in temp in my tanks.

    What type of shrimp do you keep?

    At the moment only rili, but we're getting cr.black and red again but it has to wait until spring I guess.
    I really like crystals, they get so much variety in color and texture.
    And we've always kept both red and black together.
    Many say that it'll give crappy colors, but even some of the most famous breeders do so also, cause it does the opposite.

    If keeping diff colored neocardinia shrimp together you will eventually get plain wild colored shrimp but the cardinias ( crystal ) shrimp you mostly just get more variety. .... from what I read anyways. I plan on eventually adding some mischlings in with my crystals. Mischlings can produce red/black crystals , blue bolts and taiwan bees and king kongs :) so many types !

    And it seems to lift the grade, each generation(not everyone in each gen)gets more/better coverage of color it seems.
