Re: amano shrimp
I have 16 shrimp in my 30 gallon tank. 12 Caridina
japonica and 4 of a similar species. Until recently,
I had no algae at all (something for an upcoming post,
but still very little). I also have an SAE and 4
ottos. This has worked well.
I think they may nibble on Mayaca a bit, but it always
grows fast enough to outgrow any damage. Mine have
not damaged stargrass or anything else. You can feed
them flake food with a turkey baster if algae is
scarce. They will climb onto the end of the tube and
start grabbing flakes. It's funny to see.
So, I'd say that 30-40 would probably do it for a 75.
Oh yeah, I have not seen any conflicts with fish.
Large tetras and apistos have left them alone, and
vice versa. Completely harmonious. I dont know about
big angels though...
