I am not sure how they got into several of my tanks. This is the first time I ever saw anything like this in 14 years of fish keeping. They are only 1 to 2 mm and sit on top of the water, can walk on...

Forget the corys. Even dwarf corys will eat tiny shrimplets. If you want to breed shrimp, only otos and some plecos are ok with shrimp. Also if you have an established tank with your RCS and if you...

I have added both bee pollen for food and Gravitas for breeding. The bee pollen is good food especially if you have tiny shrimplets. I use it all the time. A must have. I can't tell if Gravitas made...

Do you want to keep the red shrimp in the same tank with the blues? OEBTs come to mind or blue bee shrimp. But the TDS is a little high for both of them.

I can't confirm that but I would not rule it out. Beside prey snails they eat frozen bloodworms (a favorite of theirs) shrimp pellets and at least dead dwarf shrimp. If they can catch it I believe...

Some info is missing here. I doubt a fish "explodes". Have you actually sat there and watched this? This is not the full story. I suspect what Bushkill said to be the case.

This is probably a dumb question but you have 7 shrimp in a 17 gal planted tank. Why do you do water changes at all?

And 30% seems like way too much even if you had many more shrimp. I would do...

I had 3 dwarf puffers in a 15 gal. Two paired up and harassed the third one to death. I got another puffer, again they killed it off. I left the pair to themselves which lasted a few weeks and then I...

Where to Put the New Shrimp

I am getting some Sea Sky Blue Neocaridina tomorrow or Thursday. I am torn between adding them to my tangerine tigers or the CRS. The CRS are breeding and there are many of them in this 10 gal...

They are all fish with little bio load. I think you are fine right now except your guppys might soon be many more and than you will have a problem. I would give away as many guppys as you can.
