too many shrimp?


(newbie to shrimp tanks) - so what happens when you have too many shrimp? do they just know to stop breeding? If not, then what?

Never cull. Give away or sell. :-)

They tend to not grow as big in size and there life span is shorter.

You beat me to it. That's what I do. It should take a while before my 20 gallon is too full.

Haha, that's my problem too. I have a rodent living in the bathroom (the tub leaks so we can't use it anyway).
