Ok so tonight while I was trying to scoop out some clown fry. Lights off pumps off had a small light over one corner to attract the fry. I get one then two clown fry. I start thinking tomorrow is going to be hatch night. Then I notice a bunch of fry under light. Like 200 or more. So start scooping them out. After about 10 min I notice that they are shrimp not clowns. The clown eggs are still intact. There tiny but I can see a bit of a yolk sack. I have at least one peppermint two cleaners and a blood shrimp. Could it be fry of one of them or more likely to be a type of pod. Doubt a picture will show up but I'll try tomorrow.

I've heard that cleaners can be prolific.

All healthy cleaner shrimp breed when paired. The young take 100+ days to settle, so think hard before you set anything up.
