Are there males? Are there females? The fry maybe hiding in the moss wall.

They can take several weeks to get adjusted. Are any of them saddled? When they get berried depends a lot on when they molt also.

What are you water paramiters? it may be to cold for them, or it could be because the water isnt up to there Par.

What i expirience with my RCS is once they are preggo they are EXTREMLY shy, they dont show themselfs intell they release the young.

even with enough cover, they may be to stresses to breed. thats my only thought on why they arnt breeding like rabbits. with my rcs, they didnt breed till after about a month. are you wanting more? if you are i suggest setting up a small 5gal or somthing and add all the females to it, and add a couple males and see how it goes from there.

Not necisarily, due to the fact that its in almost all animals instincts not to bare young where they can easily die. i guess stressed is the wrong term for it. its more, common sense of the shrimp not to produce food for fish. haha.
