    Hi Masa
    Is my cleaner shrimp shedding? I normally find the exoskeleton in the mornings , first time seeing the begging stages of him molting. Normally find the exoskeleton every 3 - 4 weeks[​IMG]

    Okay thought i saw one of my shrimps carrying eggs the other day but wasnt sure.
    The fish will eat the eggs before the hatch or how does it work in a marine tank ?

    Will release the eggs and the fish with eat them.
    Normally release when the lights are off.
    Seen it a couple times.
    Haven't hears of many if non at all of eggs hatching in our tanks.
    Think they need a special environment for you to be successful.
