Get reasonable group to start with and they will likely breed. My red cherry shrimp continuously reproduce in my 40 but some are consumed by my fish...not many but it is likely to happen with any fish with a big enough mouth and I keep nano fish.

I guess my point is don't run out and purchase a set number, get a few and the colony will grow naturally.

Oh yeah, that's what was my thinking, too. I was probably gonna do it as a shrimp only tank with some snails.

That is going to be a LOT of shrimp my friend! Should be awesome though and will cut down on the variables.

Thousands? If heavily planted you should probably add a couple of fish to keep the population in check. Unless you actually want 1000 RCS.
