how can i tell if my RCS are breeding?

I can't tell if they are pregnant or not. Because they are so small. Is there any other way to tell?

If they're small you can't see ten, then it's likely they're not breeding because they're still young!

Magnifying glass is your friend!

You may be able to see eggs under the females tail and they will cavort and chase each other. I have seen a couple of mine chasing each other in what looks like male and female hanging around together doin' the Cha Cha dance. Mine still seem a little young but maybe practicing. Paul how are your awesome shrimp doing?

Keeping pristine water parameters for dwarf shrimp and filter feeding big Bamboo shrimp don't seem to mix. Maybe check out the dwarf filter feeding shrimp, can't think of the name, too tired. Maybe Lace shrimp...ahh Green Lace shrimp, very cool!

Moved my Bamboo shrimp into my community tank and I am supplemental feeding when I see it crawling around. Honestly I have been trying to feed less since I tend to over feed, so I have a turkey baster and will feed crushed flake mixed with tank water food directly into the path of the Bamboo shrimp, littering flake particles everywhere, so the other fish will get that as their feeding for the day. Bamboo is still molting regularly so I guess it is alright. But difficult to keep, if not over feeding!

It loved being in the guppy fry tank gobbling bits and particles all day long.

Too dirty for my liking, I want to change tank water less not more!!!
