Hi, I think I have a shrimp in trouble. What it looks like to me is that she was holding eggs that went bad and are now stuck to her swim fins/legs. They are are dark and fuzzy like and she keep thrashing them like she is trying to get the stuff off.
Has anyone ever seen anything like this? Is there anything I can do?If you go through a day without learning something new, you wasted it!
If they are, my female does that every time, at the end. I assumed the eggs are hatched and clinging to her swimmerets, but will let go soon. Then they will be gone. They will die in FW, or even brackish, I've tried both.
Here is a great page with more info and awesome pics:
