My shrimp are PI**ED!
Iv just undergone a large and overdue pruning of the plants in my top tank, and my Cherry Red Shrimp ARE NOT HAPPY!
All of the Wisteria and Red Tiger Lotus was overgrown and covering the surface of the water, the amount of shrimp congregated on them was immense, now they have to find new places to hang out.
The fish in there have felt the need to break out the sunglasses as there getting plenty of light now 8-)
I did the same heavy pruning to my bottom tank also, same result, angry shrimp! The fish just ignore them, i swear the shrimp feel its THERE tanks and the fish are just lodgers!
Funny, mine are the other way around... but the shrimp are outnumbered about 5 to 1 still. They have taken to the driftwood over the plants. I drilled holes in the wood to provide little caves in addition to the cracks and crannies so they tuck themselves out of harms way in the wood. Very hard to find them.
Seeing as they are all still alive I'm going to pick up a few more tomorrow... maybe bring them to 2 to 1.
I think my ratio in top tank is more like 50 - 1 and the bottom around 30 - 1 haha
No wonder they think they own the tanks.... they have the numbers to back them up.:shock:
At the moment in the top there loving it, iv only got 2 congo tetras in there, since i had a devestation in there, but going to build there shoal back up, they look lonely but enjoying the space!
