RCS: Berry and Ovary conformation


Just trying to make sure. These are eggs are her tail? She is berried, correct? Sorry for bad quality picture, had to zoom in a bit but this is her tail.


And this is the "saddle"? Those are her ovaries, with eggs in them?

Thanks in advance

Better shots of the one I think is berried, upside down.

I had trouble telling from that first picture, but the second clearly shows a saddle. The last two clearly look like a female holding eggs. Congrats!

I am thinking of keeping cherries but one thing I always have trouble on is there water pH, gH ect.. Whats your?
And nice berries too!

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

They are rather adaptable and unlike some of the more sensitive kinds (crystal red shrimp--look and be amazed!) don't really need anything specific. Getting from a local breeder will also ensure that they are adapted to your water. Specifically, the readings for my tank are pH 7.0 GH 6 KH 2. I lost a couple on the introduction, but that's pretty common. Within a week I had at least one female berried. Now all of them are!

I have just had a berried cherry shrimp that was saddled at the same time - her 'saddle' was laid as soon as her first batch of eggs hatched. she's now now on her 2nd 'berried' session, but has no saddle ATM this time. Talk about production line - maybe she heard about the $5K baby bonus & is going for a record

If you see a saddle on a berried female, means she'll be hatching within the week. They can be constantly pregnant!

I'm certain that they are NOT the same shrimp. Sorry I did not make that clear.
