Red cherry shrimp behaviour question
I'm new to keeping Red Cherry Shrimp, I have had 6 in an 8 gallon tank with my male Betta for a week now, so far everyone is getting along fine (some chasing and a few nips here and there but I've actually seen the shrimp chase my Betta too!).
Anyway, can anyone tell what is normal behaviour for Red Cherry Shrimp? They have been quite active and eating well, my tank is now sparkling clean from the little algae I did have. Sometime I notice one or two will start swimming laps around the tank, and swim up to the surface a few times, is this a sign of anything good or bad?
All my water parameters are normal and the tank is planted, not densely but it's getting there.
