    Adding Shrimp

    Currently have a 75Gal FOWLR. Numerous fish, 1 cleaner shrimp. Looking to add more shrimp. Is there a correct # to add? Can you add too many?

    No secret number. The more the merrier. I have 5 in my 225 and would be happy with as many as 10

    JR you are so right....they are a very big pain in the ass...I have 2 huge cleaners and two peppermints that won't eat aiptasia but love to rip off the food that I feed my corals even after I give them a piece so they will take off!. I've taken to putting half of a 2 litre pop bottle over the brains cause they eat so slow!! Shrimp are pests I tell you!! But they do fill my 90 with live babies every few weeks, which is a nice treat for the corals.
