Breeding SUCCESS!!!

I am so happy! After two months of having my cherry shrimp breeding tank set up, I am finally seeing results. There are literally baby shrimp everywhere, and in all different sizes! Some are starting to show color and others are so tiny I can't even see their swim legs. Also sooo many females are pregnant. Hopefully once the babies start to grow and the shrimp keep reproducing I will be able to sell them. That is why I started the shrimp tank, not only to feed my curiosity, but to sell them and try to make a little extra cash. I started with fifteen adults/juveniles, and now I have just counted over 20 babies, so I am not sure how many shrimp total I have now.


Tank Stats:
-10 Gallon
-Anacharis
-Hornwort
-Java Moss
-Baby Java Ferns
-Red lotus
-Apon-something bulb (lol spelling?)
-77 Degrees
-Sponge Filter
-Weekly 10-20% water changes
-IAL leaf litter

So many babies!:
