I have... 12, at least 12 have gone in the tank over the last year. I never see more than 6 at a time... oh one jumped out last week, so 11. There should be 11 but its quite heavily planted... then the muscles died last month and there was a little ammonia spike.... anyway they did get braver when they had a group or perhaps the odds of seeing them was just better.
They quite often fight the fish for those algae wafers
I assume you guys have them for their algae eating properties? Are they really as good as they say.
I read that Amano recommends 1 per gallon, and in some tanks he even has one per litre!! That would be 180 shrimp in my tank... that doesnt sound right at all. Even with 1 per gallon that would mean I would need about 40!
ignore amano's stocking, not just because i dislike many of his projects, but mainly cause it'll be very detrimental to the shrimp as its hard to get enough algae growing to feed them and still have good water
they are cracking algae eaters though IME and eat any left over food they can get
There are no experts, mearly beginners who know more than others.
