RCS Dropping Eggs

I was watching my RCS and noticed that she was attaching eggs to her swimmerettes and got spooked and drop approx. about 30-40 eggs, is this normal, she saved about 6+ eggs and finished attaching them.

It does happen sometimes, but usually only when they are stressed. I'd check water quality but if everything checks out it could be a fluke.

Yeah, their the shrimp I got from you and I was pretty excited about it, I just was watching took the picture and seconds later, she got spooked, I may have been me that spooked her. Anyways, shrimp are doing awesome and I love watching them. Only two of the really young Juvenal died but, really an awesome batch.

They are young mothers then, it's not uncommon for them to drop eggs on their first couple of tries, looking good though.
