how many are to many
A local fish club member gave me a few cherry shrimp last fall for my 15 gallon tank.
I do not have an accurate count. I am guessing there are at least 50 in there now. I have moved quite a few immature females with saddles into one of the Fluval Spec V's to try to cut the breeding numbers down. The other has a betta in it.
I do feed a bit of food twice a day - as I have neons and exclamation point rasboras in the tank. For the rasboras to get anything to eat, I find I have to feed a bit a couple times a day. The shrimp are an excellent clean up crew. There are also 3 otos in the tank.
How do you determine when you have to many shrimp? Is their bio-load so low you don't need to worry about it?
I have the 15 and two Fluval Spec V tanks. I do not have a big huge tank for them to move into.
