They're a great addition to a tank, just make sure it's not food for your current livestock.

For breeding you need a small tank with bubble filter, or low flow filter.

I've had cherry shrimp breed in my 20 gallon tank with tetras and honey gouramis. There has to be places for the babies to hide; java moss is great for that. I had to put a piece of pantyhose over the intake for my Aqua Clear filter to keep tiny babies from getting sucked in, but it works fine. I'm sure the fish have snacked on many babies, too.

Yes, I mean the tiny fry. I found several (alive and well) inside my filter before I started covering the opening with a snippet of panty hose.
