I have a 54L Juwel Korall with 20 or so cherry shrimp still breeding. How many shrimp would be too many? Thanks

I believe it is 4 red cherry shrimp per gallon. You have roughly 14 gallon so you should stay under 56 shrimp! Let me get you the profile on them: nope it's in the quick care statistics:

Thanks for the reply. Also in the tank are 6 neon tetras, 3 Guppies and about 10 malaysian trumpet snails, would 56 still be an acceptable number of shrimp?

pretty soon your malaysian trumpet snails will be many more than 10, many many more.

With neon's snails and guppies its certainly on the heavy side....

If you don't overfeed and your nitrates are an acceptable level before your weekly water change then you don't have to worry....

Maybe your local petshop will take the cherry shrimp off you if you end up  with too many... also see if there are any local fish clubs in your area.

Unless the Guppies are all male you will have more of those soon too. You will have to keep an eye on the population of everyone in your tank or your tank will become overstocked.

If, like me, your area is dry of clubs or good lfs you could try giving away/selling the extras on craigslist.
