Good news-bad news-great news

The good news is one of the Cherry shrimps is carrying eggs, which was a pleasure to see.
The bad news is that the same female dropped the eggs the same day :-( and I still don't have a clue what is causing this problem. On the photo one can see the female dropping the eggs, but she left a few. I hope they stay in the pleopods and become baby's soon.
And just before I decided to post the photos above, I looked at the aquarium and saw one of the female Cherrys feeding on the power head...but that wasn't all !!! I had to get closer to the tank, because I had a feeling something tiny was moving beside that shrimp... SHOCK !!! I had a feeling it was some kind of worm or something but not a tiny baby Cherry shrimp!!! Yes it was a baby shrimp, behaving the same way as the adults do, AMAZING !!! I am so pleased with this news. I don't know how this is possible since I am observing them daily. The first carrying female must have left a few eggs that I wasn't aware of. This is a great proof that my only one male is performing good !!! BTW, the miniature shrimp is approx 3mm long. To see the Red Cherry shrimplet video click here.
