I think she is berried

I knew my shrimp were reproducing in that I see the juvies 3/8 in or so but today was the first time I actually saw the flea sized shrimplets. I was harvesting the duckweed covering the tank and getting things really stirred up. The tank is so heavily planted a shrimp could probably live its entire life and never be seen, LOL. Tonite I happened to see this one, it looks like she has quite a belly full about to drop.

I love my RCS. They are reproducing like crazy. Yours look great.

I agonize over water changes, as I'm so fearful I'll throw out the ones that are almost not visible to the eye. I'm not even sure the smallest ones won't fit through the shrimp net I have. Cool little things aren't they?

I am commenting on this because it will assist in asking a question. I have started a new project this year. I Am making a 10 gal tank for nothing but RCS. It is heavily planted and only a few snails and a very small albino pleco are allowed with my 5 female and 2 male(those lucky guys). So question is I have a newly berried female and she is the first to get knocked up as far as I know. Yesterday I was looking at some java moss and saw very very small white specks zipping around in it. they move almost like a flea or something with a lot of energy. So are they baby RCS or something else.

That's a baby! Congrats. It's wild to watch the different life cycles
