    Default How quickly do crystal red shrimp breed?

    I'm thinking of setting up a 29G Biocube tank dedicated to shrimp and am curious to get an idea of how quickly to expect the population to increase. So for example, let's say I have my 29G tank, nicely planted (low tech style) and add 20 crystal red shrimp of breeding age. By the end of the year, how many can I expect to have? What about by the end of the second year?

    Obviously I'm looking for an average, an estimate, or best guess cause honestly I have no idea whether I should expect to have 40 after the first year or 400.

    Also, the assumption is that the water is to their liking and they will breed for me.

    Thanks,
    Harry

    I started with 25 or so young adults about 6 months ago and now have more than 100 in the tank (give or take 50) and have sold or traded 50 or more.... There could be many more as they are hard to count in a large tank with lots of moss....

    Cheers, Bill

    the breeding days = 63 * ( ur tank temp *1.6)
    eg. 25degree* 1.6=40
    63-40=23days
