    Baby Peppermint

    My baby peppermint shrimp are getting a lot bigger. They have found homes in empty shells in a back corner of my tank.

    In about 2 weeks time they should be large enough to take a good picture with my junk camera

    There's only 3 small baby's left, I'm assuming that the rest keep getting eaten by my fish. But the 3 that are bigger seem to be making it okay. I really hope they are baby peppermint shrimp otherwise I'll feel like a dope - and I can't really find any good pictures as a point of reference. Aside from them getting larger, and pink, and the fact that my two adult shrimp seem to take guard in the corner where the babies are - I'm about 95% sure.

    It does and it doesn't.. VERY similar, but the ones in my tank are very pink. They have started to stay away from the corner and explore the tank more. Lastnight I seen a little bugger swim right in front

    I haven't done anything! I'm fairly new to this hobby aswell. All I did was put two pep shrimp in the tank. We moved, so we tore apart the tank and put it up in our new house. About a week in, we noticed our shrimp started hiding, when they were once the focal point in our tank. After I week I grew concerned and watched carefully to what they were up to in the corner and they were surrounded by super small shrimp. Now there's a lot less.. But some have made it I believe
