    Hi guys I have a planted tank with 3 yamato shrimp, 2 hillstream loach, and around 10+ cherry shrimp(maybe more bcz some are breeding) in a 7.8 gallon tank.
    Today I just found out a cherry shrimp being strange and other are doing fine.
    May i know anyone have faced this before? it kind like swimming circle but in vertical way, if I didnt touch him he also will do it sometime but most of the time he just standing and do nothing.Sorry for bad recording because it was behind the tank and I tried my best.

    Mine swim like this sometimes on their own, also they will kind of sit and do nothing during a molt, maybe he’s getting ready for that....does he eat ok?

    It's probably swimming like that because you're poking at it.
