  • Yellow Shrimp Eggs...

    One of my female Yellow Shrimp in my Beverage Dispenser Tank became gravid about a week ago or so. I did about a gallon's worth of water changes in the tank then the next day I noticed that half of her eggs were dangling out of her swimmerets and the other half were still inside her. I attributed this to the water change and didn't do a change until I overfed one day and the water became cloudy so I started doing only a half gallon water change per day.

    It seems to have worked and the water is clear now but her eggs are still half in and half out. I haven't had this problem before, or at least that I've noticed. Will these eggs hatch? What will happen to them?

    That's really strange. The eggs probably won't hatch unless they are getting a good amount of oxygenation.

      I agree. If she drops the eggs I would put them in a breeder box with an airstone for oxygenation.

        I have zero experience with shrimp unless feeding them to fish...

          She's been hiding a lot lately, either that or she dropped the eggs and I didn't catch them. I haven't seen her for a couple of days so I have no idea what to do with her... I've already chalked up that batch of eggs as a loss in my mind because of this.

          I wish these Yellows would just hurry up and breed already. There's another berried female.

              Well, what do you know? It looks like at least one did.

                        The babies bring the total of known shrimp to... 12!

                        Oh, yeah! Definitely time to sell.
