Pregnant Red Cherry Shrimp

Here's an amazing video of a pregnant red cherry shrimp fanning her eggs. She holds on to them until they are ready to hatch into little shrimplets, usually about 20-30 days.

  1. Wow Amazing, beautiful shrimp and the eggs can be seen inside. I wonder how the babies looks like. Is this shrimp yours?

  2. The babies look like exact miniature copies of the parents when born. However, they are very hard to see since they are so small!

  3. Neat, if I saw that happening in my tank I would have no idea what was going on. I have a few cherry shrimp so I'll watch for "fanning". Is there any way to tell if they're pregnant?

  7. I saw that one of my shrimps is having some eggs in her belly, but they are not green and as big as the ones in the video, I wonder if the shrimp's pregnant or she's just mature.(I read that shrimp have eggs inside and then they mate) Is there any way to tell if she's pregnant? Thank you.
