Where to put incoming shrimp?
So I bought about 20 shrimp that are waiting for me at home. but I'm having a dilemma of where I should add them. Here are my current options:
20 gallon high heavily planted riparium with the following inhabitants:
3 cherry barbs
Assorted snails (assassin, <abbr title="Malaysian Trumpet Snail, Multi Tank Syndrome, or Mineralized Top Soil">MTS, Ramshorn)
I just escaped and put in a lot of moss and a piece of Cholla wood on top of the new manzanita and other stuff.
Lots of moss and a few pieces of wood. Only 2 cherries (both female
Ramshorn snail family
The following aren't really options:
1 gallon Jarrarium
Heavily planted with 8 cherries and at least one of the females had lots of babies!
.7 gallon snail Jarrarium
.4 gallon snail Jarrarium
Do I split them between the 20 and 2.5? Do I put them all in the 20? I'm just worried about my betta, (or flagfish) going rogue and taking out the shrimp.
Disclaimer: 7 of my cherries started in the 20 gallon and there was only one death. (less planted then). Inhabitants were the same minus the 4. juvie flagfish and the betta. So at least Betsy the flagfish wasn't a shrimp killer.
I appreciate your help!
