I have an established 29 gal
, running HOB
with sponge and ceramic tubes. Gravel substrate.
Ended up having to move the existing 4 tetras & 4 ghost shrimps to another tank.I took the fish out because I was worried they would eat or harass the cherry shrimp. I watched them for a while and they didn't seem to eat the shrimps but I do not think the shrimps were happy. The ghosties and the fish get along just fine.
Now this 29gal. tank only has 10-12 cherry shrimps . They are about 4mm long. They are grazing away but they don't like algae wafers or anything else I have given them.
Now I am starting to wonder if they are producing enough bioload to keep my cycle in balance.
