    Hi

    May I ask how long does cherry shrimp's eggs take to hatch into little shrimplets? My shrimps are having eggs on the underside of the body...thanks! Is there any significance in the color of the eggs? green or yellow color eggs

    My experience is about 3 to 4 weeks from when the eggs appear on the underside. I have had both green and yellow eggs but have not been able to determine if there is a difference (i.e whether one colour will hatch and the other will not).

    It takes about 4 weeks, the shrimps give birth to the young alive. Cherry shrimps' eggs are yellow in colour. Crystal red shrimps' eggs are darker coloured.

    I did some research sometime ago on CRS egg hatching durations, I would think that Cherry Shrimp would also follow a similar pattern based on water temperature.
