Shrimp ?

I was wondering how many shrimp can be kept in a tank. My tank is 37g and I have on gold coral banded shrimp at the moment. Am I able to add any other kinds?

CBS can be agressive, but can also be docile. You can add another species if you don't think your CBS will go after them. Maybe some peppermint shrimp or cleaners?

Most CBS' are territorial. You can try adding another type of shrimp, just don't be surprised if it gets killed.

I have a large CBS that I never see. I also have two very small peppermint shrimps that are thriving (knock on wood). My tank is 120g though.

In a smaller tank I`m thinking the coral banded shrimp will be pretty aggressive toward other shrimp. I would only try one to see what happens.
