Cherry shrimp should breed quite readily, without you having to do anything.

Could you give us more details of your set up, please? Size of tank, any water tests you've done, the temperature you keep it at, whether it's planted, filtered and cycled etc.

How long have you had the shrimps, how big are they and have you seen any berried females at all?
