baby cleaner shrimp

I just got to watch my cleaner shrimp throw her babies finally. She's been carrying them for about a week since they hatched and there are baby cleaners everywhere. I know they won't survive to adulthood, even though they are in a tank by themselves, with just the adults but, it was cool to watch non the less. Here are some pics of the new babes.

That's cool Rev! My shrimp are in a tank to themselves. It used to be my seahorse tank and the horses passed on. I have been debating on what fish to add to the tank. The shrimp have been living it up for probably two months now. lol Oh well. Though they won't last long, it's fun to watch them for now. Looked like the male shrimp has been taking a snack here and there of the offspring. I have the filter intake covered by a sponge but I can see it pulling the babies in as well. It's neat while it lasts.

Not according to everything I've read and been told here on AA. They will do well for a while then just die. We'll see how it goes though. I'm in no hurry to add anything to the tank so they have time.

That's cool Cindy. Too bad they can't make it, but still cool.

Well, this morning I only seen three babies. They could be hiding in the liverock/chaeto or they could be eaten by now.

Cheato would be the perfect place for them to hide I would inspect it and see if they are in there. Makes perfect sense to me.

Wow. My cleaner released her eggs in my main overnight one night a few weeks ago. She's preggo again though. She seems to carry them for quite a while (2w?) though. Last time it seemed like she was preggo forever. I haven't been watching as closely this time.

Wonder what would have happened if you'd taken the parents out... would the babies have stood a chance then? If there was any chance that my cleaner's offspring would survive they'd be in the 15 by now! Bummer, huh? Bet you could fetch a pretty penny from the LFS for those!

Enjoy them while they last!

This makes it look doable... http://www.wetwebmedia.com/shrimpreprofaqs.htm

Very interesting that the corners of a tank would kill the fry?! Fishbowl anyone?
