Just did a big water change. My tank has grown out well but having a tall tank with so many plants makes it hard to find shrimp in there...

Default shrimp

they do a good job of hidding
I had a 38 gal I threw a couple in and I never saw more then 2 or 3
when I took the tank down there where about 100.
I kept some in a 5 gal planted tank and they where doing fine multipling and staying in the open
There where no fish in there, I put in a couple of least killies(the smallest livebearer in America iamtold) and they ate everyone in a couple of days
I read after that least killies are very aggressive, why you should research first

I have a 5 gallon planted with 2 bettas in it now but I may try to pair the male up in my larger tank with a crowntail. How long have you had the shrimp live?

I have had the shrimp for several years, before my least killies ate them

You should have asked me about those Least killies. mean little suckers. But not as bad as Gambusia.
