Hey everyone this is my first post on tropical fish keeping! :-D can anyone help me determine the sex of my red cherry shrimp? I plan on breeding them but i have a fear all 5 of mine are females.... here is a picture of 3, the other 2 are hiding :-(
Anyways if anyone can tell me the gender of these 3 it would greatly be appreciated!!

Females will be larger than males, darker red and have a curved underbelly. Males will be smaller, lacking color and have straight underbelly. Hope that helps.

Ok from what I can see 2 males and one female..... Not an expert...... From what I have read must people start with 10 -12 for this reason, so small haha.... In the near future when I can get my shrimp tank together I plan on starting with 12 or so in a 20 gal long. so any imput on factors of success would be awesome
