Well, she's still holding her eggs. FINALLY was able to get a pic of her eating some carrot with one of my otos.

If you haven't had shrimp before, I would suggest you start out with Red Cherry Shrimp (RCS), Amano or Ghost/Glass shrimp. Red Crystal Shrimp are more sensitive to changing water parameters. The other three are more forgiving.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong; I don't mind...really.

That above statement is pretty much dead on start with red cherry or ghosties, ghosties are far cheaper and will give you some shrimp experience

The first time I tried ghosts they all died overnight (January 2012). Granted, in hindsight I did add them to a brand new tank after acclimation, one was harmed by the employee while getting caught so he died first and the other 2 followed. The spike in ammonia put my betta Lakitu in shock, and he died a week later. I was devastated.

So, this January (2013) I bought red cherry shrimp off a hobbyist, rather than a store, and gave them their own tank. They have since thrived and I have week old babies and another mama carrying eggs. They're so bright and fun. :)

I suggest starting with Cherries. Much more forgiving than Crystals. However I believe they have similar requirements.
