Cherry Shrimp

My shrimp are having baby!! Ops, sorry not baby but BABIES!! Lot and lots of them swimming around inside my tank! From a mere pathetic 8 pieces left as a lot of them dies due to water problem some times ago, it is more than 30 to 40 pieces now!(it is correct to use the word pieces to call them?)

My shrimp are not normal shrimp. Mine are those in red colour where they are more famous as Cherry Shrimp costing around RM 2 - 2.50 per pieces. Come let me show you how its look like.

Sorry for the blur photos as am using hand phone camera.
