    Default New 10 gallon red crystal+bee shrimp

    Hi, i've just made my nex tank with these features:

    -tank 60x30x30=50 liters
    -1x36W PL light
    -external filter with a prefilter
    -ada soil amazonia as gravel
    -co2 plant

    this is the tank, it is just filled with water..(sorry for bad quality of the picture)

    I was just thinking to put there some red crystal and bees like these in photo

    Ok, i know that there is a typical ratio for these shrimps, as in a post below (in exampe a ratio of 5:1 )But, my question is.....

    Do you think 10 red crystal and 10 bee are too much?Or is it better 10 crystal and 5 bees???What will happen in these cases?
    I only want to put these two species in a tank, i dont want to mix them only to improve genes or other stuff (but if it happens is ok for me!!)

    ciao!


    thank you for reply

    20 dwarf shrimp in that volume of water should be fine.

    Whatever combination works for you. It depends on what you're trying to achieve and what you want more of in the end, the red (CRS) or the black bee.

    retardo said it, you have a nice tank and after it is cycled you can do whatever you want in the end

    Very simple answer/fix: don't mix unless you know what you are doing *and* have the resources available to selectively breed the mix that you want.
