Juvie shrimp

My 2-month-old Cherry red shrimp appear to be pretty close to full sized but only a few of them are very red. Despite that, I noticed that at least one of them seems to be carrying eggs. I don't know for sure, but I am definitely hopeful. It would be reassuring to see them breed - the mothers of these shrimp were carrying eggs already when I got them, so I can't really claim to have "bred" them. If these guys breed, I will feel comfortable about the water parameters, and more hopeful about my ability to sustain a population.
