Shrimp Pregnancy length

I have 4 Peppermint and 2 Skunk Cleaner shrimp. The larger 3 peppermints always seem to be prenant and recently I noticed the skunks are both pregnant as well.

How long it takes to gestate one batch of eggs? I know ts doubtful any will survive I'm just curious as to how often my fish get a midnight snack.

my cleaners are on a 6-8 week "cycle" and the blue mandarin loves the rush of food for sure.

Wow, that is cool! When the Peppermints have the babies do your other fish eat them or do you collect them?
