There were no larvae or little babies, I figured it was just my imagination. Probably, there weren't any courtesy of the filter and a spot of infanticide by all the tetras in the tank.
I will have a read up on how to look after the shrimp.
She is isnt fat anymore, just "radiant" or "glowing" I guess.
Cherry shrimp don't have the larval stage, their eggs just hatch into this white,clearish minature copies of the adults and if she is not carrying eggs anymore it means the babies are just hiding somewhere and when they're ready they'll come out :)
