Baby Shrimp!

My aquarium is a constant source of joy and learning. Late yesterday I was doing what I often do, just chilling looking at life in my wet garden, when I noticed movement in some plants and when I looked carefully I realized that something I had long suspected, had occurred: My shrimp are reproducing in my tank! I could not be happier. They are my gorgeous little red algae eaters.

You have to realize, the adult in the photo is about 15 mm long and the babies, maybe only six millimetres or so.
