Thanks

Also I haven't gotten the shrimp yet but if anyone can share a website or someone here where I can get quality shrimp for a low process I'd really appreciate it

Go for 12 at least.

Personally I'd get 20.

If you wanted to breed them, 10 would of been a better number.

Also, hopefully it won't be the case, but hopefully you'll get all 6 of your RCS in one piece. Usually people order a slightly larger number in the case of death of some of the shrimp.

Good looking tank though. They'll love that moss.

Yeah kinda thought it wouldn't have been a good number the ones I chose looked like better quality than others I've seen
The guy had good reviews and feed back so if they all come alive it'll be 8 the guy threw in 2 extra just in case
You guys think they could still start slowly breeding it's a RCS only tank

Give them a month or two. And they should start going at it really fast.

Since it'll be a RCS only tank, it should be a walk in the park to have offspring.

Just make sure you don't overfeed and keep up with water changes. And they'll be off breeding easily.

I definitely won't overfeed
Any shrimp food you could recommend?
And I'll do a 30% water change every week
