Currently, I have about 60-80 red cherry shrimp in my 10 gallon as well as about 20 crystal red shrimp. My celestial pearl Danios are beginning to eat the adults and the eggs. It took them awhile to realize how tasty they could be but they finally did.
It started when I trimmed a ton of plants from that tank and the shrimp lost a lot of cover.
Here is the tank as it stands today.
Love your planted tank. Especially the crinum plant in the back, long crinkly one!
CPD are predators to shrimp, sometimes they seem to leave them alone and sometimes not. Sorry your fish have expensive taste!
Well don't miss the invertebrates section in Freshwater, in case you haven't seen it yet!
Hey if you need some sand for a new project, I have a RAOK drawing posted in off topic aquaria...if you are interested, just post to the thread and you will be entered!
