Shrimp Mating: How does it happen?
Ever wonder how shrimps mate? It is a bit different than the usual mating process like other animals do which some lucky individuals are able to capture and share. These videos are interesting as not every day someone can witness the said activity. But fret not, whatever the videos show are just part of the mating process which does not do any harm to either male or female shrimp. It is just amazing to discover new things every now and then which only proves that there is a lot in this world that humans are yet to know.
The process is not that difficult as the shrimps are going to mate once the water composition and parameters are set on the acceptable levels which are intended for breeding shrimps. So the job of the owner is to prepare the fish tank accordingly and the shrimps are just going to do what it is supposed to do, mate with each other. In some references, it is recommended to have a separate fish tank.
