The miracle of birth

I just check my tank and I saw my three cleaner shrimp gathered around in a circle.

I was looking at them earlier and two of them were loaded with eggs.

So I was checked a with flashlight to see what all the fuss was about
I saw a lot of stuff floating around in the tank
Then I turned on the actinic lights on to find hundreds of baby cleaner shrimp swimming around.

Too bad they wonÂ’t live to see the morning
Someone or something is going to have a lot of food tonight.
