Their reproduction is one of my goals. I have 15 of them now (one died under mysterious circumstances). Getting them to breed will have to wait, unfortunately. I have a bit of an ick epidemic with my neons that I have to sort out first.

I'll be sure to post here the moment I see signs of any small shrimp.

One small thing....Cherry shrimp are small...about half the size of an Amano shrimp (or less). You can't get much lower on the food chain then the Cherries. They would be a tasty meal for an Angel fish. I'm not sure what Rams are like (I've never had one), but if they can live well with Angels, then Cherries would most likely be on a Ram's menu as well.
