    You may also like to let people know that all shrimp are very sensitive to chemicals (including medications and fertilisers) in their environment and care needs to be taken in this area.

    I was recently given 5 cherry shrimps by a local pet shop. I have watched them swimming around peacefully for a few weeks. But this morning, I noticed a black creature the size of a cherry shrimp moving around in the tank. It seems to be a kind of chrysalis with a shrimps legs and shape. Knowing that shrimps lay egs, I’m wondering if anyone can shed any light on what this might be? Thanks.

      Its probably a chrysalis. Red cherry shrimp exuviate there outer skeleton very now and again so that they can grow. However, after they exuviate it takes a while for another skeleton the reform on there body meaning that they are very vulnerable during this time and could easy be killed by a fish. The exoskeleton can be left in the tank as they will eat it to regain calcium which will be reuse to strengthen there skeleton.

      It’s not an egg because eggs will remain attached to the females body until the hatch. Then they are like miniature version of there mother.

    Hey, Johno. Thanks so much for that. It makes sense, given what I’ve seen of it this morning. Raising shrimps is all new to me, so it’s great to find other people who know more about it. Thx again.
