That I would say would be considered a slightly larger batch than normal. But keep in mind that shrimplet survival rate isn't always 100% which is why you don't see so many shrimplets. They're so tiny anyways you wouldn't see all of them at once unless they were in a confined space such as a breeders net or box

Thanks guys! If I moved that shimp to the HOB refugium would that be better? I have neon tetras and glofish as well as guppies in the tank but it is also heavily planted. I wanted to give the glofish and tetras to my fiance's brother but she wont let me since the pink glofish is technically the one I got for her lol
