Went to the NYC museum of natural history. They have a very large ecosphere with thousands of these shrimp. >_>

My little Petco Bookshelf 6.6 gallon Opae Ula tank currently holds about 300 shrimp.

Give or take, of course!

Is that from breeding? I think that may be too many?

Nope, not too many, and with all the live rock and rubble they have plenty of space for privacy.

Take a look here:

Keep in mind that these may be a third of the size of your typical cherry shrimp.

Hmm. I will just say be wary of accepting the word of one source. That occasionally can be ruinous. This isn't necessarily one of those situations, but this source is also trying to peddle the shrimp to you.

With the same bio load at a different size, it would be appropriate for 200ish 1/3 size cherries.

I hope that its not overstocked for your sake, I was just alerting you to the possibility I've never kept them.

Water parameters are fine, the shrimp are active, eating and doing what shrimp do.

All is well and closely monitored.

looked beautiful when they first installed it lol. As you may have expected its now full of brown algae on the glass, is very dim since there is no lighting (the overhead windows in that auditorium are the major source). It just looks plain gross right now haha. and they cant really clean it, so its just going to do what an ecosphere was designed to do - as best as it can.

Rob what type of lighting are you using? quick specs. and duration. 300 in a 6.5 gallon tank you seem maxed out but the activity level must be great. You will need another 6.5 when they start breeding.

Is quite active, Ken, and very cool to observe.

The newly set up 10 gallon tank (see post 102) will be stocked with shrimp from this tank. Currently it has MTS and macro algae. (Oh, and diatoms!)
