Re: Are my shrimp bearing eggs??? #11
i know fireshrimp are herms lemme see.....


wetweb says: shrimp in general if gonochoristic (dedicated sex/gender) can be distinguished by the presence (male) or lack (female) of modified swimmeret's (last paired legs) where the thorax meets the tail. Lysmata are hermaphrodites though. Read more about the congener Peppermint shrimp in "Breeding and Training Peppermint Shrimp" by April Kirkendall for insight to your L. debelius fire shrimp.

I believe Lysmata includes fire and skunk cleaners
