Breeding RCS. How many do I need

Do I need a certain number of them before they will breed or will the breed regardless of how many I have. I've got 10 atm (there is a mixture of males and females). Do I need more or will they eventually Start breeding from that many.

I'm hoping they will breed since my brother now wants some

I recently got ten. They had young. I got ten more from another source to diversify the gene pool. I think there is about 35 shrimp in my tank now at various stages of development . I have also lost about 5 . I can also see several berried females. This has taken about 2 months.
Hope this helps.

10 is a great starting number. Before you know it you'll have shrimp galore

Absolutely, they'll start going crazy given the opportunity. If it's a shrimp only tank than even more so!

You only need 2. 1 female and 1 male have the tools to make lots more!
