I saw them do IT
 
:-)

Two skunk shrimps (Lysmata amboinensis) having a quicky in my tank :-)
Last night, around 1:00am with lights off but ambient light from the
room light I noticed a fresh empty exoskeleton of one shrimp and two
shrimps hanging out next to it... One is niticable softer than the
other - you can tell it by the way how the antennas were moved by
the water currents...
When I was watching suddenly one shrimp grabbed the soft one hug it
belly to belly forming a two-shrimp-cross and hold it so strong that
I was afraid the soft one will crack in half...
Whole thing lasted maybe 2 full seconds and that was it - they
relaxed later with grooming their antennas with their pincers...
Like nothing happened a moment ago :-)

Looks like I was late for the molting show because soon after that
the empty exoskeleton flow with the water current away from the
scene. If I watched the tank couple of minutes earlier I would
have seen a shrimp molting with my own eyes...

Well, I have marine tanks for many years and I had always shrimps
there, but I have never seen before them having sex :-)

quickie?

:-))) No, did not see any tobacco products being used ;-)

I know... It would be much more "cool" if I was at the
tank couple of minutes earlier and see the molt...
I have always wanted to see this happened...

BTW - Maroon clowns lied eggs yesterday afternoon, too.
Their biggest nest so far. So it was very sexy day in my reef tank :-))

Look, I read a lot of books, like you suggested...as such I think I am
well enough educated to give you a friendly piece of advice.

Make sure you don't put the viagra bottle next to the fish food
bottle. When you drop the wrong one in, things like this happen!

thats pretty nice, are you using moon LED's? i have seen alot of
increased sexual activity when the moon LED's timing get altered up by
moving your LED timer forward one hour BACK each night which is the
schedule that the moon is on, one hour later each night, and or the
colors change, such as going from white for months, then changing up
to blue LED's.

thats great!

What sexual activity do you have on your mind?
Do you say your wife is in better mood? ;-)

Well, last night I saw again shrimps behaving strange...
Did not see any of them molt or "making baby shrimps" :-)
But I knew something strange is in the air... hmmm water :-)

They were agitated, jumped on each other, it was visible
that there is unusuall activity going on. Intensive touching
with antennas, red shrimp chased by the orange ones, etc...

It was 1:00am and I was not in the mood for waiting... very sleepy.

This morning I saw in the same spot an empty shrimp exoskeleton.
So as I expected, shrimp molted again that night and they had
fun again when I was not watching...

Oh well... maybe next time.

BTW - two recently acquired red shrimps still not go well
together. Stay in separate areas of the tank - I guess it
will take some time for the similar relationship like between
orange ones to develop...
