I have found that adding Almond Leaves ups the mortality rate tremendously. The baby shrimp feed off of the bacteria that grows on dead leaf matter. Even though I had lots of java moss in the tank it wasn't until I added the Almond Leaves did I notice a population explosion.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
