    Hey everyone,

    Got two cleaner shrimps about two and a half weeks ago. Anyway about three days after I got them they shed and were both pregnant. So tonight was two weeks since they shed (Was told this is how long they take to lay their larvae into the water column), so anyway about 5 mins before lights went out tonight it looked like a sand storm had happened in my tank. The first shrimp layed its larvae and then about 5 mins ago my second shrimp layed all its larvae. My fish and corals are loving life at the moment.

    I was gonna try and raise them just for fun. Been researching it and had everything prepared, like tanks and feeding timers, just forgot the food. So last night caught me by surprise. In two weeks I'll try again because both shrimp shed last night and amazingly they are both carrying large amounts of green eggs again.
