What would be a good number of amano shrimp to keep in a species tank and what size would be good? I'm not talking on massive scale, just something big enough to house a few comfortably. Are there any fish that would compliment such a tank or are they best on their own (which is kinda what I want, but just wondering). I just love these little guys and would be tickled pink to have a tank full of them and whatever they like to play with.  jolly1

IMO Shrimp only tanks are more enjoyable. The shrimp feel free to explore the entire tank and are much more active than when they are in tanks and constantly hiding from predators.

Tank size is really your choice and of course depends on how much you are willing to spend. On a small scale I like for my shrimp tanks to be 10 gallon tanks and at times 20s. A 10 gallon tank can make a nice shrimp only tank. Add some plants (live or silk) and provide them with pristine water conditions and then enjoy watching them play and do all the odd things shrimp do.

That's my plan! Now how many and what m:f ratio could I put in a 10?
