20 Gallon long shrimp tank

This tank has been up and running for a while now. It has regular ugly small gravel with crushed coral mixed in. There used to be Kribs in it. Then put dwarf puffers and an angelfish and ghost shrimp in the tank. The shrimp lived so I got CRS/CBS. Never saw any babies from the ghost shrimp, think the puffers ate them all. Well fast forward and I took out the puffers and now I have a zillion ghost shrimp babies and CRS babies and more berried females

The angel was taken out a while ago to. So now that I have babies I took out the ghost shrimp and stuck them in a HOB breeder box and they're still breeding like rabbits. Now plan of action is to get some BTOE and Red Tigers for the breeder boxes. The boxes hold 1 gallon of water so they should work.

Sorry the tank looks terrible

Oh and was wondering if it is normal for the shrimp not to run to food when it is dropped in. They could care less that I put food in and they just keep on happily grazing on the rocks and plants.
