New scarlet maybe has eggs.

Well I went to the LFS this evening. They had just got a shipment on new stock. They had some ok prices for a LFS today so I couldn't pass a couple of things up. I got this anemone and scarlet and a few other creatures. When I got home, I noticed the scarlet seemed to have eggs. You should notice the dark area on the bottom of the shrimp. Up close they look like green jelly balls and look like they may even have eyes. Sorry I couldn't get a closer pic, but hopefully you can tell by the pic and the description if my assumptions are correct. If they are is there any way to help them survive if they hatch?

Scott

Yep those are shrimp eggs. Regretfully the survivability rate for them is next to nill. The eggs are at the bottom of the food chain and everything in your tank will find them to be a great treat.

If you have two of these shrimp you can acutally end up with them producing and releasing eggs every few weeks.

Quite common after moulting. If the eggs are not fertilized, the shrimp will usually eat them... :P
