Red Cherry Shrimp fast breeding?

Ok so i know RCS are fast breeders, but I was wondering if I got a 10g tank with 10 RCS in how long would it take for their numbers to reach 100+

Weeks?
Months?
Years?

Thanks =)

Depending on food and water quality I went from 15 to 100+ in months. As the females matured the survival rate increased.

That sounds good to me. Tempted to buy a 10g of a mate cheap.

What do you do with them all anyway? Sell them?

I spawn mine with the plan of feeding live shrimp to my other tanks once the RCS are plentiful enough.

That sounds a good plan. A good way of varying my larger fishes diets.

Mine seem to just routinely drop their eggs without producing shrimplets.
