its amazingly simple to tell if a cleanershrimp is pregnant, simply because they hold the eggs under their tails for a peroid of time, generally they are a green colour. the eggs then hatch then go into the water colum and unless your raising them become food for other critters in the tank. to raise the larvae you'll need a special tank and need to do heaps of research Razz

also good idea to search the forum or google search just doing a google image search of "pregnant shrimp" I found this photo http://www.ultimatereef.net/uploads/aidys%20(87).jpg,

it is advisable to always do some searching before asking a question Razz
