yes, idealy no tank mates as most will eat teh baby shrimp ottos are considers teh least likely to harm shrimp but with babys i dont know
Yeah, I'm broke and about to move in a month. I'd love to have another tank, but this is hardly the time for MTS. I suppose I could pull a scolley and put them in a bucket until they grew bigger than bite-sized. Sounds like a plan, actually.Well, for optimal shrimp breeding, you will want to do a shrimp only tank. Why not get a tiny nano? I have a 2 gallon nano where my shrimps are starting to breed.
Otherwise, you will want to DENSELY plant the tank, and maybe get tiiiiiiny fish?
Ottos are the only 100% safe fish because of their specialized mouth, its next to impossible for them to eat them... Never seen it happen, and my 1-2mm babies swim around the tank.yes, idealy no tank mates as most will eat teh baby shrimp ottos are considers teh least likely to harm shrimp but with babys i dont know
2mm is fine enough for a tetra mouth. And chances are they will be eaten, or at least most of them will be, and all the shrimp will do is hide.I actually thought a shrimp population of 25-30 would be pretty good in my 20gallon!
The neons and betta are pretty docile. I have never had any problems with them before attacking or acting up. Only my male cherry barb is a little agressive.
I don't think even 2mm is small enough for the tetra mouth, and the betta barely even knows what to do with the freeze dried blood worms.
