    I started with 3 in my 2.5g. Now i'm up to about 20 with a few bigger ones and some babies.

    Really i just add water once a week to keep it from getting too low. I did one water change once....but that was about it.

    Yeah I thought you could but wanted another opinion!!
    Matt - I bought 10 and now have at least 30. Once they are comfy and happy and start breeding that's it. They keep on going!! I love them - they are easy to care for but I can stare at their tank for hours and hours watching them!!! Good luck and put up a pic when you can
    Fish are friends, not an expendable entertainment device!

    I have Red cherry shrimp in a few tanks the smallest is 2 1/2 gal. I have fake floating plants and fake plants in the sand. Did you know that cherry shrimp will look darker in color if the gravel or sand is dark. They try to match the color in the tank. If you use light colors they will not get a deep red. I have black sand in mine and a black background.

    I bought a (azoo palm filter) through drsfostersmith.com it's for small tanks up to 5 gal. it works like a canister filter. I cut out the back of the light fixture so that it would fit in my tiny 2 1/2 gal. tank and cut the plastic piece that goes over the tank top so that it would fit in the back. I also cut a bio sponge to put in the filter in front of where the water goes out.The tank came with a underground filter. I got rid of that. Since I put a few Red Cherry shrimps in that tank I've had tiny baby baby shrimp. I have a fine netting over the intake to the filter so the babies don't get sucked up. You can use panty hose and a rubber band also. Do not get Red cyrstal shrimp to start with as they are really fussy about the water and you might loose them and they are really expensive. Cherrys will run about $6 at the fish store. I got mine from a local lady on craigslist for $1 each.
