At long last, it had to be done. My steadily growing population of shrimp has reached its max capacity. So, 25 were chosen to carry on life in the 55gallon grow-out. The others, their little shrimpy lives have been spread across 9 tanks. Some will find they can set up new settlements, others...well, if they are clever enough to evade detention they might just make it...the rest, fish snacks.

Hubby is losing his mind :rofl: , he asked what sort of dystopian drama I was getting at, to which I replied Shrimp-ageddon!!! He then said wouldn't it be easier to just turn a few Acara loose in the grow out. Technically, yes, but this way some might actually stand a chance.

Pretty much sums it up, quite a few did go into tanks with small fish so those will probably get jiggy too and then I will have 5 tanks full of shrimp. They are about as bad as the BN🙃

🤣 Yep, no quiet in this house. I will have to get a picture later, I have a whole new batch of Lemon BN fry. They are cute but I wish they would take a break. My cories do it but the eggs are always eaten pretty quickly. I think from time to time it would be nice to raise a batch, then I think, am I out of my dang mind?
