I know the usual 1” per gallon rule, but I saw some other forums where the suggested 2 WCMM per gallon could live a happy life too. I put 6 in a 3 gallon unplanted tank with some slate that creates some hiding spots. Put 3 shrimp in too. Love to here your thoughts. The WCMM behavior seems to be that of happy fish. They’ll swim on their own or in twos or threes or fours sometimes around the tank, and sometimes they huddle in a full school of 6 for a few minutes. Do you think this setup will be ok for a decent life for them? It’s at my desk at work and I don’t think a 5 or 10 gallon tank would be appropriate or easy to care for in my cubicle. Any thoughts, affirmation, or concerns I’m open to. Tank conditions are 70’, 7.4PH, <.25PPM ammonia and nitrites. 20% water changes every other day. Pic below is with 4 in but now I have a total of 6 and 3 shrimp.
