Sexing is easy. The males are slightly smaller and less colourful than the females and the females have what looks like a white saddle on the back which is the undeveloped eggs. As in looking after them they are pretty easy I find, just do what you do to look after your fish pretty much

I have 40 RCS in a 29 tank. I haven't gotten my java moss yet, but I see tiny mircro shrimps at the top of my tank against the glass. They are eating stuff at the border of water line. I'm trying to get Java Moss asap though.

I also see one female trying to give birth. It seems like she was having a hard time. Its been day 2 and nothing has come out yet. She goes to the same spot to give birth.

Cool, please let us know if you're successful. I haven't seen any baby RCS in my tank yet, although I think I've seen them mating...

this is for jim and DP,

IME shrimp are very prone to stress. when they get stressed they no longer reproduce. it took mine about 1 month after putting them in my tank to start breeding. also with plecos and java moss, make sure you have kinda like a ball of it, so its dense enough for them to hide in and the pleco's not able to gobble' em up
