Pregnant Peppermint?

My two peppermint shrimp... I assume the second is full of eggs?

Your assumption would be correct.

Mine would always 'jump' to the surface to release the fry. Pretty cool. Your fish will love the treat.

Really cool pictures. I bought a couple of peppermint shrimp and rarely see them. If I turn on the light in the wee hours of the morning before the sun comes up I may catch a glimpse of one as it scurries to hide. How do I get them to come out?

Do they come out at feeding time at all? Get a moonlight to see the tank inhabitats at night.

Local host. No they don't come out at all during the day. I think there may only be one left but I am not sure. If I look with a red light at night I see one, sometimes.
