They are 53 days old now. All doing really good, growing well. One of them is 3/4" long. They are super fast a lot faster then an adult shrimp and hide when I am around. Pics are next to impossible at this stage. I feed them flake food once a day and they still like NHBBS which I add once a day.

The shrimp are 88 days old today and noticed one of the females carrying eggs this evening. There are around 40 of them that survived this long. Raising them was a pain, I learned a lot but doubt I will do it again. Here is blurry pic of some.

Congrats for closing the life circle!
Given sufficient thrust, pigs will fly just fine.

Will you be doing Lysmata Debelius next? I hear that fire shrimp (blood shrimp) are not that much harder than your first successes. And they go for a lot more money if you want to trade them or take them to a local marine fish society meeting.
