    i know there is a rule for fish, but I’m wondering if shrimp are included as “fish” when it comes to how many you can have before it’s too many. Right now I have 2 cleaner shrimp and 2 fire shrimp in my 32 gal biocube. They are all doing so well, and I LOVE the way they look in the tank...but want to make sure it’s not a bad idea before I add any more. Any advice is appreciated.

    Thanks!!

    I wouldn't add anymore. I have one cleaner in my 90 gallon and it seems to do okay, but I would be concerned about keeping that many shrimp fed in a 36 gallon.
