I'm not sure if this is in the right place but it's mixes a few types of fish.
Last week I bought 12 Cherry Red Shrimp. They came FedEx and I was so excited to put them in my tank so they could get bigger, adolencent shrimp ship better I'm told, and do what they do best. I bought the Cherry Red onces so my 2 year old could see them easier than the Glass Shrimp that I can get at any store. Anyway, I put these little guys in ym tank and my sword ate one literally before he made it to the bottom of the tank. Now, 3 days later, I can't find an shrimp at all!! I bought my swords a $25 dinner!! I really want to get more shrimp since I really like what they can do for my tank and my son really liked them also. Any suggestions? Should I buy the cheap Glass Shrimp who are bigger and see if they get eaten before I spend more money on the Cherry's? Should I just give up on shrimp?
