My lfs has glass feeder shrimp. I buy these to feed my lion (weening process currently) anyhow, I was cleaning my filter sock when I noticed 4 of them in the sock so I put them in the fug. Fug has sand, LR and cheato.

Are they beneficial to the fuge?
Think the may breed in there?

Well I purchased some more breeder shrimp for my fug. I am guessing that no one has attempted this. I would think it is fairly common for maintenance.

Notice one shrimp feeding on another. Do these things eat algae/plants/ect?

They will eat algae and leftover food and detrius and whatnot but I've never known them to eat plants.

They may breed in there but the eggs will get flushed out if they release them. I don't think they'd be beneficial because they might eat some pods in the fuge. Probably not enough to affect anything though.

Gotcha, are pods beneficial to a tank that only has a lion, eel, and foxface lo? This will eventually be a reef setup. But I am just trying to get the sand and other base rock established by the live rock I have in there now.

Pods are beneficial to everything. Unless they're parasitic but you usually don't have those.
