Indeed they do. They are much bigger than new-born baby shrimp, I'd prolly put them at 3-4 week old baby shrimp (cherries, anyway, as those are still the only baby shrimp I have). They are bigger than what I thought they would be with the size of the egg, but still smaller than I anticipated them being. Today I am taking the new mom home. :smile2:

You make them sound bigger then they probably are. 3-4 week old cherry's? If you had to guess, would you say the crayfish are about half an inch?

Actually, my cherry shrimp don't grow very fast... either that, or I have tooooo many babies being born, so I don't know what they look like after 3-4 weeks... The crays are prolly 1/4 inch, some close the 3/8 inch. Only way I could see the cherries after 2 weeks was to line them up on the filter, as they were really tiny.

And this morning, I'm having a terrible time finding the shrimp food... Wifey fed them while I was gone, but now I need to feed them and I can't find it :frown2:

Doing good. Right now, they are climbing up the back wall of the tank, as well as eating all the java moss.

Climbing the wall:


Eating the Java:


Chillin on the sponge:


The last picture, the "one" on the plastic tube is an empty shell from a molt. If it doesn't get eaten, I'll pull it out tomorrow.

The second batch have finally all hatched as well, some started hatching Thursday (possible a little early because I moved her to an empty tank?) with some hatching on Friday, and all finished by 5 on Saturday (thankfully right before I left for the rest of the weekend). I'll try to get some pictures of them when I get home tonight. This batch has a lot more than the first. :)
