How amazing that you have Crystal Red Shrimp in a community tank! That's almost impossible. They are so touchy and hard to breed. You are referring to the red and white striped ones, right? The all red ones are red cherry shrimp - those I can see surviving in a community tank. If you are referring to the red and white ones you have really done an incredible thing! I can't imagine it! :faint2:CRS sorry if i posted wrong lol i got the words mixed up and mine have already breed in my community tank with other fish including loaches (the babes are now too big for them to get) and thats why i'm setting up my five gallon.
