I've got some shrimp in a 3 gal
currently. My ratio is 2:1. But with so many places to hide, I thought might help too. I had the shrimp in the 10g but they slowly started to disappear. So I moved them. Probably will move them back eventually, now that there are places to hide. I gotta wait for the population to climb again though.
