I had to give away around 20-25 to my friend for the colony to start breeding again. There's definitely enough food, since the back wall is green with algae. And the water is warm enough at the right salinity.
In the beginning, the key to getting the first 16 shrimp to breed was providing them a lavarock "cave" made from well-cured liverock with plenty on dark interior space for them to hide in. About a month after that, I discovered 3 berried females. And they kept breeding from then on until the population got to about a hundred.
If you search the forum, you'll see my old posts with plenty of pictures...
