How many amano shrimp for my tank?

Maxwell09

How many more amanos can I get? I was thinking maybe 2-3 more?

7 gallon cube planted tank

4 asian stone catfish, 3 blue daisy ricefish, 1 amano shrimp, a couple of neocardina

I was told for my 10 gallon 2 total would be a good number but the people telling me might have just been conservative on tank population

I think the problem isnt bioload or space i think its the food. 10 gallon wouldnt have enough algae for like 20 amanos. Someone correct me if im wrong

yes, the main concern is the food. amanos are quite big, whereas cherries are much smaller so you'll be able to have like 30 cherries in a 5g. although 20 amanos sounds like a space + food problem haha

Yes… maybe the thread starter should do Cherry shrimp instead of Amano shrimp since it’s a 7 gallon? I feel like Cherry’s would be cooler in a bigger group. Maybe 10?

I already have neos in there, and since they barely make any bioload, I was thinking to get more amanos. Cause amanos are big and cool.
