Talking cherry shrimp

hi guys i got 6 cherrys in my betta tank as iv always wanted them. i love em they awesome to watch and im delighted to say that i seem to have a few babies. they miniscule like less then a centimetre and the only reason i know they there is because i saw one on my apple snails shell. does anyone know how long they take to grow? i have plans to move vulcan into his new tank next week and im worried now that i wont be able to catch the lil shrimplets.

i moved the apple snail from my community because he didnt seem happy, i think the guppies were nipping his feelers. he know shares Vulcans tank with the shrimp and 2 loaches and is at this moment is enjoying a supper of peas along with the shrimp, gave a bit to vulcan as well.

Most bettas tend to eat shrimp especially the baby shrimp so watch out for that.

Apparently they take about 6-8 weeks to grow to adulthood and start reproducing in your tanks =)
