How many shrimp can I keep in 5 gallons of water?

Shrimp add a pretty small bioload to the tank so you could add 3-5 if they are by themselves!

depends what shrimp.

30-40 rcs would be happy in a 5G tbh.

1-2 dozen with proper filtration, they may be considered feeders but I keep them in all my tanks except for the tiger barbs, in that tank they become food... :hmm3grin2orange:
