I'd get around 7 cherry shrimp, unless you can pick and choose which shrimp you will be buying. if you get to pick, and if the shrimp offered are adults, you can easily just snag 2 males and 2 females and be set for breeding them. but otherwise 7 small juvies should give you a decent chance of getting what you need. yes this jar looks really nice and full now, and as long as the plants are healthy and growing, its definitely ready for shrimp. you will want around 5-7 adult shrimp in here max.

Thanks Newman.

The plants look healthy but I did have an issue where some of the leaves on the hygro had holes in them. I removed what I could and the plant itself looks fine. Is it possible some sort of deficiencyin nutrients or lack of lights?
This was happening really low on the plant stem. I had some salvinia in the jar but removed the majority of it for lighting purposes.

Thnaks for the compliment.

An update, I added 10 cherry shrimp to my bowl. I should hopefully get some babies out of this.

The jar is going good. I think I saw some baby shrimp walking around. I have enjoyed this bowl. It was a first step for me into something with live plants. Because of this jar, I now have a 20L that I am dry starting.

Do you have any pictures or a journal of your 2 gallon? Sadly I broke my jar down.

Nice little setup. This makes me want to put together my 2.5G vase again. I still have it sitting empty in the basement.

A lazy susan would have been cool. This is a round table with a red cloth thrown over it.
