too many shrimp?

(newbie to shrimp tanks) - so what happens when you have too many shrimp? do they just know to stop breeding? If not, then what?

Mine stop breeding at a certain shrimp saturation point.

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!

Never cull. Give away or sell. :-)

Sometimes fish like pretty (or not so pretty) snacks.

They tend to not grow as big in size and there life span is shorter.

You beat me to it. That's what I do. It should take a while before my 20 gallon is too full.

Haha, that's my problem too. I have a rodent living in the bathroom (the tub leaks so we can't use it anyway).
