My Shrimp are berried! Now what?

Gazing into my tank today I noticed 1 berried Ghost Shrimp and at least 4 berried RCS. Anything special I need to do? They are in with a guppy and 2 Mystery Snails. Is the guppy going to eat the babies???

For the rcs, you will get shrimplets soon enough. If the tank has enough places to hide, you will get some survivors, but the guppy will certainly eat any it can catch. Your moss will give shrimplets nice places to hide though.

Wellll another thing is if you have ghost and RCS together, the RCS will not be very happy, nor will many of your babies survive. Ghost shrimp eat their own young, let alone tasty RCS

I keep rcs and ghosts together, many people do. Experiences will vary since there is a multitude of shrimp species that are labeled as ghosts. Its definitely a cause for concern but something I'd just keep an eye on personally.

Because the ghost shrimp are so aggressive, RCS aren't really compatible with them :/.

Sorry

Jeta here makes a good point. I've only ever had the aggressive ghost shrimp I guess. So like he said, keep your eyes peeled for any fighting/suspicious deaths.

One thing that probably will remain true; you probably won't get any babies lol.
