  1. Just let them multiply! They have a super light bioload so the colony can get quite large without negatively impacting water quality. Yes you can also sell some to a local fish store if you find yourself with too many shrimps.

  2. New take on the berried shrimp photo. I like it.

  3. You can have a ton of shrimp, even in a small tank.

  4. Shrimp are excellent self regulators – if your feeding exactly the same they will increase population to match feeding amount – and reclaim shrimplets that exceed the sustainable availability

  5. Are Cory and Loach good with shrimp?

  6. Others answered you shrimp question well.

    I have a question though: Only one corydora? They typically are much more comfortable with more of their own kind, as they are shoaling fish. One by itself may get stressed out & sick.

  7. Facebook market place and craigslist are options for selling shrimp locally. Personally though, I am wary about meeting up with strangers as there are plenty of weirdos out there.

    Hence why I prefer to sell to my local fish store. If you do go the local fish store route, make sure to call before hand. That way you don’t come in with a bucket of shrimp then they turn you away. It also gives them time to prepare a tank for the new shrimp.

    If you do get rid of them or move them, I would recommend trapping them as opposed to chasing them with a net. Chasing with a net is hard as they are very fast, and also stresses them out (they are prey).

    Water bottle traps are cheap and effective. You quite literally cut a water bottle in half, stick it together, place food in, then set in the tank. Within an hour or so it will be full of shrimp. You can find more in depth instructions online, just search up ‘bottle shrimp trap’
