So I have over 120+ red cherry shrimp plus 100+shrimpletts. I want to start culling.
How many should I cull and how often?
I have less good males. How many males to females is needed in good colony?
I have some females with red legs

A couple of options. Remove the best looking ones and start another colony. Remove the ones you are not happy with and add to a BIG fish tank we’re they will start another colony.

It is said that the males do not show their best colours until they are mature. Probably the same thing can be said of females?

I can’t tell you how many is to many in a tank as you don’t say how big the tank is. Thousands is my belief in any tank not hundreds.
