Peppermint Shrimp and babies
Today, when I came home from work and watched the tank awhile, I noticed that there were 3 peppermint shrimp laying up under a rock. After closer inspection, I noticed that they were fanning eggs on their bellies.
A few hours later, I went in and was watching. A few minutes after I sat down, the cardinals started going crazy, they were eating what appeared to be, little white baby shrimp! They were acting like it was candy.
What is the success rate of raising these shrimp to adulthood? I realize the mothers would have to be moved to another tank. But is it even do-able or worth the headache? Will they have hatchings on a fairly regular basis? Any ideas?
