Amano shrimp behavior?

    Do your Amano shrimp ever act territorial at all? Do they tend to stay in groups or make their own little places?

    I have 3 Amano shrimp and one has recently decided that it likes this cave a lot.

    While the other two stick together in the nook of this driftwood.

    They used to all hang out together, crammed into the little place in the driftwood but the other one discovered the cave and seems to center around it now.

    I have 4 Amano and from my own observations I'd say it's just a difference in personality. When I got first two one hung out on plant and one in a decorative ship but as they got bigger and more confident they often can now be seen in same area grazing and the two younger shrimp seem to just cue in to that plus I removed many decorations because it was algae covered.

    None of mine would hang out, they all have their own little haunts, they come out in force when it's feeding time though. Red cherry shrimp and bamboo shrimp are way more social in my oppinion.
