Default Cherry Shrimp in 30 gallon tank


A video of my cherries I started with about 12(I think) and now I have this many. More were hanging out in the floating plants.

I love shrimp, they are one of the cutest animals - especially when they swim. Very nice!

Holy moly! Did you purchase each of these little guys individually or did you manage to breed?

They breed rapidly

I bought 20 to start with from aquabid. They quickly filled my 10 gallon tank I had them in so I took 10 of them and put them in my 30 gallon(one in video) and there is at least 100 in it now and I am still seeing new tiny shrimp. So now they have 2 aquariums all to themselves.

Here's a more recent video of them(taken during a tank cleaning so sorry if it looks a bit dirty):

Awesome now I'm gonna have to do some more digg'n on care and breeding. The freshwater guy at my LPS said he thought they where really hard to breed :/ so I didn't want them.

BęttBb, They're super easy to care for and breed, that's why they are cheaper than other dwarf shrimp. A good site for info on freshwater shrimp is http://www.planetinverts.com/.

Just keep the water clean with regular water changes, feed them about every other day(more if you have a bunch of them), and the shrimp will do the rest

ZebraDanio12, if you're really interested in some pm me and we can work something out
