Anyone have experience with these guys? When is the ideal time to get them(at time of setup or after algae begins)? How many, if any, would be required for a 90 gallon (already have 5 Ottos)? Thanks.

theyre good shrimp. 6 is a good number. They should be kept at lower temps, as like ghost shrimp they get more rowdy and violent in high temp

with a 90 gallon you could probably get like 15-20. they are awesome as a clean up crew i have 4 ammanos, 5 cherry shrimp, 3 ottos, and 7 clown killifish in a 10 gallon. they are always walking around eating something

its fun watching shrimp eat, workin their claws... i liked to watch my starfish eat bloodworms the most. He'd grab em in his arm, then roll up his arm and shove the bloodworm in his mouth
