      Hey guys I wanted to share a few pictures of my 2 1/2 gallon shrimp tank. It all started with 4 and now there’s over 35 in there.

      Nice looking little setup. It's crazy how fast these guys multiply. Mine went from 5 to 30 in about 2 months as well.

      Good color Cherry. How long does it take you to increase the population to 35.

      I started a planted shrimp bowl a month ago with blue Cherry. I haven’t seen any babies yet but I have spotted females carrying eggs, so hopefully the population will multiply.

      That’s fast! I don’t know how you can count them as I have trouble counting the adults. How large are the babies at birth and how fast they grow?

      That was an estimate of the number, but it continually grew. I would bring 20or 30 to the lfs to sell, and a month later the numbers would replenish. Probably had 50 in there at one point. They are real small when born and take a month or two to get to a half inch . After a half inch is when I would sell them

      When they look like this you know they'll be berried soon enough. I grow a lot of algae as a continuous food source and it's helping a lot this time round!

      Do you feed your shrimp, I don’t. They are in a shrimp only bowl with high plant mass, and direct sun light to drive plant and bio film growth. I top it weekly with nutrient rich water from my other fish tanks.
