Max number of shrimps in a 10 gallon?

Hi :-D

I own a 10 gallon and I was thinking about buying more cherry shrimps. How many should I put in there before it becomes overcrowded?

Hi kitkat632,

In case you were not able to find it in a search of the subject, here is a link to a recent thread entitled "how many cherrys per tank":

I welcom your enthusiasm about shrimp, but please try to perform searches on any questions you have before posting the same question for the Nth time in the forum. I take the rules very seriously in this forum to keep up the quality of the information and avoid endless repetitions (among other things), so please try to follow them. If you have missed them, they are in the "Rules" section of the forum.
