Crystal shrimps behavior


Recommended Posts

Hi, today i added 2 new cherry and 3 orange shrimps(2 orange are berried) into my tank which has 4 crystals red and 2 crystal black left and 1 baby cherry shrimp. The moment i added the new cherries and oranges, 2 crystal red and 2 crystal black seems to had gone crazy. They swim round and round and kept chasing the 2 berried orange shrimps. What are they doing? Are they trying to steal the eggs?

Not aggressive but kind of dumb and easily confused by new "smells".
They were probably trying to mate with the neocomers.

I've had my neos do the same thing to some traumatized GBs that had barely survived shipping in 90F weather with DOAs in the bag.
