I have an IM14 (14 gallons total, probably 13 of that in the display) that sits on my desk. I currently have three sexy shrimp, two Pederson't anemone shrimp, one snapping shrimp and a peppermint shrimp. Oh, and four masked gobies (tiny fish, around 1 inch long) The tank doesn't look crowded but I know territory size matters.

My question is could I add more sexy shrimp or more Pederson's shrimp? I see the Pederson's a lot but sometimes the sexys are lost in my forest of gorgonians.

Anyone keep large numbers of sexy shrimp in a nano?

I have sexies in my 6gal and for some reason every time I start with three and end up with one. Not sure the deal. I think it is just bad luck with most of them. They last less than a couple months (except the one I have had for a year or so).

I would say that is plenty of shrimp. Maybe a few more sexies would be fine since it is 14g and they fined a place and usually stay put. Love masked gobies!! You could get a small shrimp goby for the pistol. Love seeing these guys work together.

Pics would be cool.
 

Do you utilize the weekends for tank tasks?
