I decided to have a shrimp-only tank and bought 10 or so fire reds. Well, I blinked, and now have hundreds of shrimp.
They live in a ten gallon. I've kept close eye on parameters and all is well thus far.
I'm estimating I have about 400 with 20+ berried constantly. I plan on figuring out a way to reduce numbers, due to the "10-20 shrimp per gallon" guideline.
I guess what I'm asking is: for now, will this be a problem if parameters stay stable?
I heard that once they reach a maximum population density, the breeding will slow and almost stop. Is this true?
