Shrimp set up

I'm setting up my old 20gal long tank to try and breed some RCS. I picked up four today. Still early in setup though, I'll post more pics as I add to it.

Is it even possible for them to breed in the home setup? I pick them up at petsmart for .33 each for my "cleaner crew"

Idk if you're getting red cherry shrimp I'f you're only paying .33$ I think you might be talking about ghost shrimp. And yeah cherrys are among the easiest to breed. Just leave em alone and they do their business!

Sweet. Yeah i have ghost shrimp, the guy at the petstore said they might or might not breed, probably not, even though i got like a dozen. I am now starting to like these guys along with my albino corys, they do a good job as cleanup crew for my tanks.

If I were you, I'd cover the intake of the filter with a sponge or panty hose. Otherwise your little shrimplets can easily get sucked up.

I agree with nu-nu . Boost up the numbers to about 20 and they will take it from there!!

Check out some CRS, I love them they are a little more difficult to maintain but really cool looking.
