when a female moults, the males will want to breed and they fly around the tanm seeking out the moulted female :)
As long as your tank is cycled and nitrates are low (less than 20ppm) the shrimps should be pretty happy. They are one of the hardier shrimps afterall ^_^

the females have a "saddle" which is her ovaries in which are store unfertilized eggs. when a male comes along and fertilizes the eggs the eggs are transferred from her saddle to between her swimmerets. When that happens you get a berried shrimp ^__^

Is the shrimp still scavenging or does she seem clearly agitated and hopping from place to place? how are the other shrimps acting?
