probably indefinitely until their lifespan is up. if you had toxic levels of co2 they would have died already by now

They can live fine in a tank with co2, co2 affects their reproduction rate more than it does their lifespan

What kind of shrimp? Not all shrimp are the same.

Outdated information, there are a number of people who keep these breeds in tanks with high CO2, someone local to me keeps SS CRS in a tank getting 5 CO2. They don't breed successfully but they survive just fine

Co2 n Shrimp

When shrimp aren't breeding, they're not as happy as they could be.

For a serious shrimper, most don't use co2. I personally don't.

If your doing an iwagumi setup, I've seen people go crazy with CO2/Ferts until they get the plants "grown out", then they add shrimp and remove the CO2. They still give ferts, and through the time all the plants are "grown out", a ton of bio-film will have "grown" in the tank. That's if your just setting up your tank, if not, I wouldn't use CO2, but if you really need it, just do it at a low amount.

This subject is hard to say for sure.

I had seen numerous videos of large scale breeders using CO2 in all their tanks with low pH loving shrimps. I think its to keep pH low at all times, but not to a crazy amount. Something like 1 bubble every 4-5 seconds probably, 27/4 so very little fluctuation.

Most glass shrimp will not breed in our aquariums.

Sure. Many come from different parts of the world, species wise. Most, however, are from river mouths and their babes need brackish water.

A seldom few species breed in full fresh. And at their price, it isn't actually worth breeding them lol.

I have shrimp in my high tech setup. If there isnt sufficient surface aggitation and current moving through the tank, the risk of gassing is significantly higher. This combo definitely needs a bit of care and expertise to get right and not recommended for the average hobbyist.
