OK, so I got about 10 red cherry shrimp for my 30 gallon tank, and not too long after, all my otos disappeared. The shrimp were tiny, so no, they didn't eat them, but I wonder if they ate up all the stuff the otos were using. Anybody have a guess?

Also, I was thinking of breeding shrimp. I gather you can do that in a fairly small container. I have a 3 gallon bowl, was planning to use for bettas but got tired of keeping them. It would work, but how important is filtration and aeration for shrimp? Any thoughts on a good setup?

Thanks

Shrimp need good water quality - a 3 gallon bowl will not provide that.
